Suede is proving to be fall’s favorite texture. While I’m fan of just about anything in this fabric, I’m a big fan of the suede mini skirt.

The trench coat is the queen of fall jackets and she just got a makeover.

If there’s one thing that fashion week taught me this year, it has to be the power of street style. Spice up your everyday look by playing with patterns, textures, and unexpected embellishments. Jules of Sincerely Jules did just that with her printed dress, bright red purse, and sequined sneakers.
