The Nordstrom anniversary sale is around the corner (July 20 with prices going up August 6th), so I wanted to share with you the 6 fall trends you should shop for during this incredible sale.

This way, you are armed for battle when the sale opens and you can snag the BEST fall pieces that are current and fashion-forward. PLUS, these trends have a chic and timeless aesthetic, so you can wear them years after. 

When I join a trend, I ask myself if even if it was not “trending”, would I still enjoy the garment. Is it something that’s always chic and represents my style personality?  If so, then all systems a go!

Often with trends, they’re actually timeless pieces that make a resurgence. This means you can easily find them in stores and have a lot of options. (woohoo!) I find it best to follow these trends that have a timeless essence to them, because you can STILL where the pieces when the trend fizzles out (as long as it’s chic, of course).

I’ve selected 6 trends that I think are the most worth-while trends for you to try in the fall of 2018.

I’ve chosen these because after the fall - when they’re not the fad anymore - you’ll still look chic and super stylish with these pieces.

OKay... are you ready?! Are you READY for the Nordstrom Sale and start shopping?!!!!! YEAaaAAAAaaaaHHHH!

Okay, here we go... let's dive in!

The 6 fall trends I find worth investing in are:

Trend #1 Plaid (I always loved my Catholic school uni)

  Burberry Plaid A-line Skirt :  Don't be shocked by the preppiness of this skirt or if it feels 'too old or mundane" by adding a simple black bootie and you immediatelly make it current & modern.

Trend #2 Animal print (va va VOOM!)

  Marc Fisher Flat :  A leopard flat is a DEFINITE essential. It's an easy piece to have to jazz up your Look and add a pop of print and texture. A simple jean and white button down totally changes it's style when you slip on this flat.

Trend #3 Capes (fly fly flyyyyy!)

  Kimi & Kai :  Capes are a winter life-saver! Not only are they flattering for the hip and   legline  , but they're practical, feminine, and fun! I mean, look how jeans and boots totally transformed!

Trend #4 Shearling ("the Lord is my shepherd and there is nothing I shall want")

  Mackage Shearling Crossbody :  What an unexpected and FUN way to use shearling. Even though it's unique, it still is neutral and versatile to match numerous outfits! The simplest Look is transformed with this bag.

Trend #5 Red (all set for Pentecost Sunday)

  Halogen Sheath Dress :  This classic cut   is transitions   to every season. The summer with a sandal, the winter with tights and boots, or even dress it up with a blazer or go casual with a denim jacket. When can't you wear it?!!

Trend #6 Leather (not just for edgy girls!)

  LeMarque Leather Jacket :  If the sound of a 'leather jacket' makes you nervous, try it in a softer color, like a grey or blush. It can be used in lieu of a denim jacket or blazer. It brings texture and   deimension   to your Look. It's also perfect to pair with more feminine pieces.

Cute, right?! These are all super fun pieces that will always make you look polished. Plus, these pieces make you look FANTASTIC without trying to hard (or spending a lot). Attaining that “je ne sais pas quoi”

And also, if these trends aren’t tugging at your heart and you’re not head over high heels with them, I recommend downloading the Fashion Essentials Closet Checklist and use it to guide you through the Nordstrom sale. And if you already get my Emails, you should already have it in your inbox shortly. : )

These pieces can all be worked into your “closet essentials” because they are chosen to specifically MAXimize your outfit possibilities. Who doesn't want that?!!!

The Closet Essentials will be able to carry you for years (as long as you take good care of them) and are INSANELY versatile. The trick with this checklist is that you use these timeless, chic essentials and pair it with fun accessories and create unique combinations.

Question: Which pieces will YOU be shopping for this fall?
