Fall 2012 Style Lookbook!

Hi Loves! As you know, there are tons of fashion trends this season and it’s important to find the ones that work best for you and your personal style. Whether you have your fall wardrobe already on lock or you are looking to add some pieces to jazz things up a bit, here are some ideas of Fall trends that I am currently loving! Enjoy!
Look 1: Layers, Polka-dots, & Oxblood
As the temperature
begins to drop, layering is the key to keeping warm while looking stylish. In
this look, I layered a vintage parka vest over this fun polka-dot sweater and
oxblood maxi skirt. The vest complements and pulls together the deep red color
of the skirt and the contrasting black and white sweater. This fall, instead of
smaller subtler dots, try bigger and bolder dots against a vibrant color!

Look 2: Burnt Orange & Printed Blouses

Burnt orange is a perfect color trend this season. The color matches the leaves on the trees as well as adds a refreshing pop of color that gives a retro feel to the overall look. Finding the perfect shade for you is essential to avoid looking washed out. The blouse should always be a wardrobe staple. This season, they are loose fitted and almost sheer. The printed blouse trend has rolled right over from the Spring into Fall and with the one I’m wearing from Old Navy with leaves on it, under my vintage blazer (also worn here), who can resist snagging one?

Look 3: Military/Army Jacket & Pops of Color
The Military Jacket is perfect for this season. It can be layered over knits, blazers, oxfords, or even maxi skirts. These jackets are not as thick as winter coats but are just right for those breezy evenings out on the town. The military jacket comes in a plethora of cuts and shapes. They also come in several colors and are extremely comfy.  They can also be dressed down with jeans and a pop of color and and animal print like I have pictured below.
Look 4: Chunky Sweaters & Denim
The time is finally here to wear cozy, chunky sweaters! You can pair these over leggings or denim for a daytime look (pictured below) or wear it over a form-fitting dress or skirt as I did in the first look! This creme woven chunky sweater is thrifted and one of my absolute favorites! I layered it over a blue oxford shirt with jeans and gold boat shoes! (this pic was taken mere hours before my honey proposed to me here!)
I hope you have found some inspiration from these four Fall Looks I have put together!! I can’t wait to hear your thoughts :o) Stay tuned as I am working on a Part Two! 
I am also sharing my style on The Pleated Poppy, Rolled Up Pretty, and Transatlantic Blonde blogs today!
Have a wonderful day!

    Yaaayyyy! Your lookbook is here! So many teasers along the way, I have been looking forward to this. They are all darling and well-styled, but I have to name the first look as my favorite. I adore the dots, and I love the the balance of the feminine sweater and skirt with the more tom boyish vest. It's darling! Great job, Chioma!!! ~Sarah
