Fall is nearly upon us, and you know what that means–cozy sweaters, ankle boots, and cool walks in the park! Another thing we’re super excited about? The upcoming fashion trends! There’s nothing more exhilaratingthan a new wardrobe, and the new season is a perfect excuse to go shopping! Read on to find out about 5 cute trends and where.you can get them on the cheap.
Tis the season for bold neckwear! Choose a collar length one with lots of bits and baubles. Have no fear–use these necklaces to have some fun and make a bold fashion choice. For the best look, match with a toned down outfit so as not to overwhelm passersby!
Another way to go bold for fall? Pretty printed dresses! Go for a busy pattern for a fun look, or a plain dress with a bit of print if you want to stay more reserved. Again, make sure that when one piece that you wear is busy or has a lot going on that the rest of your outfit is toned down. Go for solid-colored shoes and bags, and go easy on the jewelry.
Belt It Up
Too much print got you down? Feel like you need to break things up? Belt it! That’s right–beautiful belts are in for autumn. From wide to thin, from bows to buckles, belts are a perfect accessory to accentuate your waist and break up busy patterns.
Plaid isn’t just for lumberjacks and Catholic school girls, you know. This classic print is making a comeback this fall, and it looks like it’s going to be more fashionable than it was in the grunge era! Pair plaid tops and coats with classic jeans or black slacks. Dresses and skirts look great with thick tights.
Need that perfect accent for a great piece that won’t overwhelm? The answer is simple: zippers. Whether for fashion or function (or both) zippers add a fun touch to otherwise plain looks. Try them out on dresses, tops, pants, and outerwear!
Get it all (for less)
Not all of us can pay designer prices for amazing new trends, but still have a taste for fashion. Does that sound like you? If so, you’ll notice that all the links in the pictures above go to LightInTheBox, the fashion bazaar where chic comes within reach. Here, you can find what you need at amazing prices, so you can stay trendy without breaking the bank. Love it!

Most brides spend a lot of time thinking about their dress – the cut, style, if it will be pure white or cream – the list goes on and on. But another choice, one that is arguably just as important, is what you will wear on your head.
First – veil or no veil?
If you picked veil:
Pick your veil based on the look of your dress:
Longer veils are better suited to floor-length gowns or gowns with a train. Conversely, shorter dresses look better with shorter veils. If your dress has a high neck or is a more eclectic style, a very short visor veil is a good option.
The most popular veil length is the fingertip length which goes down to (you guessed it!) your fingertips.
If you said no veil:
Many modern brides are choosing head adornments other than the traditional veil. Some wear elaborate headbands, tiaras, or pins, while others simply leave their heads bare.
Brides with long faces look better with headbands or decorative flowers pinned on the side. Brides with rounder faces are more suited to tiaras or bridal hats pinned near the top.
Whether you choose to wear a veil or a different type of head-wear, make sure it doesn’t take away from an intricately designed dress. But if your dress is simpler, your head-wear can be more elaborate!
