The weather in Milwaukee took a turn towards fall today with temperatures only getting to about 62 degrees.  The nip in the air made me wonder if it was time to put away my sandals and start hauling out my sweaters.  Of course, I imagine that the temperatures will still climb back up to more seasonable highs, but this brooch with its rich enamel earth and jewel tones seems fitting for the day:

If you’re wondering what direction fashion will be taking this fall, you might want to take a look at the list below:

  • Chic urban warrior-styled clothing
  • Clunky biker boots
  • Eccentric color combinations
  • Leggings
  • Slim or straight-cut jeans
  • Vintage-inspired styles
  • Long cardigans
  • Tuxedo jackets
  • Mix of luxury items with thrift items
  • Statement jewelry (big, bold and clunky pieces)

Actually, from what I could tell from looking through the fall issue of InStyle magazine recently, this fall’s fashion lineup is much like the economy – unpredictable.  Good to know, especially for those of us who are more apt to dive into the recesses of our closet for inspiration than head out to the stores to buy the latest trends!
