Our Top 5 Fall Essentials; PART FOUR!

VESTS

There are so many wonderful things about fall, besides the hot chocolate and knee high boots BUT we LOVE being able to pull our vests out again.

Not only do we carry the traditional fur cropped vest (MUST HAVE!!!) – We have started introduced this leather-inset & tweed vest!

So when you go into your closet and you feel you have a million and one things to do that day, just throw on a pair of comfy pants or leggings and your new BFF – this Iris vest. You will look polished, edgy and ready to hit the road!

We also cannot contain our excitement with the leather pockets! #BESTIDEAEVER

Our Top 5 Fall Essentials: PART THREE!

LEATHER
If your clothes could speak, what would they say? – Probably “I think I would look better with a belt” or “I’m missing a button.”
Then again, who knows!
But when we walk down the street and see a woman with a leather jacket or leather pants, her outfit is telling us that she is edgy and cool and that she means business.
But what if you just want a little bit of edge added to your usual office or party outfit?
Many designers this year have added leather insets onto their statement pieces and this may be a trend that we shall be seeing time and time again.
My Tribe is a brand that knows leather dresses are a must have so they have a wide collection of dresses with snazzy leather insets.
For example this hot number:

Caitlin Power knows that a little leather jazzes up an outfit without making it look too over-the-top.
Her blazer and skirt (below) are a sexy, yet very sophisticated interpretation of an edgy take on an otherwise classic, sophisticated look.

Another great leather inset blazer we absolutely love is by Iris (below)!
Its so practical and can be dressed up or down. Oh, and did we mention its extremely comfy? The sleeves incorporate a stretch knit from the inner arms right down to your wrist!

Our Top 5 Fall Essentials ; PART ONE!

ANIMAL PRINTS!
There are many ways to look and feel sexy, but there is no easier way than throwing on a shirt or top that is a gorgeous animal print!
Zebra, tiger, leopard, oh my! So many fabulous prints to choose from how will you ever decide?
Don’t panic, as always we’ve got you covered with our run down of fall’s best animals prints and in what items!
If you want to go all out sexy yet still comfortable, this Wren dress (below) feels as comfy as a velour tracksuit.
Animal print head to toe positively screams empowered woman and of course it is still on trend with the “colour blocking” effect…or shall we say Animal Blocking?!
WREN DRESS
Up next is our knit leopard print skirt by Velvet. And yes, it is as comfy as it’s brand’s name!
One usually associates knit clothing with big fluffy sweaters, but why not switch it up and have a great knit piece that is an upgrade from your typical fall skirt.  Paired with our black opaque nylons and a sweet l’il ankle bootie also makes for a great day-to-night look!
Velvet Skirt
Now, if you just want a little pop of leopard sassiness, why not one of out  C’est Moi animal printed scarves?
They are lightweight and go with absolutely every outfit in your closet!

Our Top 5 Fall Essentials; PART TWO!

CAPES

Capes are great for over that perfect date night dress, or an evening cocktail number because it adds an interesting layer rather than covering up your gorgeous outfit underneath!

Also! If you are a lady on the go, capes are great to throw over pants and a blouse, or even just leggings and a tunic.

We believe if you feel comfortable in what you are wearing you will strut down the street embodying confidence and therefore true beauty — All that from just a great cape!

Caitlin Power has created the ‘Cape of the Season’ (see below) with small arm slits and a striking leather detail for the neck line which is why it is our number one cape MUST HAVE for fall!

Though our next option may not be classified as a cape, it works for your body in the same way. The tribal print has the three shades of most people’s daily outfits: Black, Grey, and Brown. Can you say “Perfect”!? It goes with any colour themed outfit that you plan to wear any day of the week. Its another great piece to pair with leggings and boots!
