Turtlenecks + Dresses

I love my spaghetti strap summer dresses, but as the temperature drops I push them to the back of my closet. Layering your favorite summer dress with a turtleneck is a trend that many designers are running with. Add this to your fall and winter handbook and have fun playing with cool texture combinations.






Ruffle Overload

Ruffles have been all over the runway this season. Most of the pieces on the runway were definitely over the top, but this trend can be simplified into something like this Fendi blouse. They aren’t cascading ruffles like most of the other things on the runway, but definitely has a playful factor just like the more exaggerated pieces.
