The ‘80s are back with a classy 2015 fall twist. Imagine neon in combination with a subdued color like grey, or layers on top of layers that revolutionize our existing thoughts in regards to them. This fall it’s all about a glimpse of the ‘80s without fully diving into that era. So stay bright & bold during the cooler months and keep the ‘80s semi-alive…without the frizzed out hair and cheesy eye make up.
Today I am easing us into fall with a few key must-have pieces that you can play with all season long. Whether you pair my finds with solid prints or bold and textured looks, you will definitely be glad to have them in your closet. Mix and match with the rest of your wardrobe and voila, you are all ready for this season with ultimate fashion charm.
My first showcase is a flawless two-tone grey coat from Diane von Furstenberg. I love the flair and execution of this jacket. The oversized shawl collar makes this all the more appealing allowing you to showcase a bright and sexy top underneath. This jacket will keep you warm and looking like a true fashionista when the weather is not so fun.

Having a bold or neon top peek-a-boo from underneath the jacket above will give it the fall allure look that is so on point. This inspires me to start pairing my fall clothes together after this heat wave is over. This top is a gorgeous color and it pairs well with fall greys, blacks, and the evolving different shades of brown.

Every gal needs a sassy, long, and shimmery skirt to wear for the fall. I love this maxi skirt. It has all the proper elements that make it uber relevant this season. Wear with a fringe top or a sexy layered blouse to continue a chic, trendy look.

Earth tones and fall are two peas in a pod. This season keep the cascading look alive, but change the fabric in which you flaunt it. Suede is all the talk. Wear this soft color over a silk emerald green color blouse or ignite it with fuchsia. This drape look can even go over this season’s two layered split shirts. The flowing is real and it’s definitely a fun look, keeping you fashionable even after you take a layer off.
