I’m not much of the outdoorsy type, but I can’t help but fall in love with one of the biggest trends this season: camouflage.  The army-inspired print is instantly toughens up any look, but still feels modern and playful.  Check out a few of my favorite camo pieces, which are way more chic than your average surplus goods.

style formula: spots + dots.

Polka dots and leopard are some of the most classic prints around.  On their own, they  liven up any outfit.  Put them together and they create a bold, but surprisingly cohesive look.  It’s currently my favorite combo on rotation, so I’m recreating it for you with pieces that are perfect for fall.

last hurrah.

Wonder leopard calf hair skinny cuffI can’t believe I’m admitting this, but I’m starting to switch my wardrobe from summer to fall.  The first things to go into hibernation: bright pastels and overtly spring-ish floral prints.

While I was saying farewell to a few of my seasonal faves, I found this coral dress that I hadn’t worn since last June.  I couldn’t bear the thought of waiting another year to wear it again, so I mixed it in with a few of my fall staples for one last floral hurrah.

now & later: sam edelman wedges.

Skirt The Rules Blog; NYC fashion blogger; style blog; Forever 21 Twisted Cut Out Cuff; Gap Colorblock Leather Envelope Clutch; Urban Outfitters byCORPUS Silky Scallop Hem Red Dress; BaubleBar Ivory Sunburst Bib Necklace; Sam Edelman Sutton Leopard and Cognac Strap Wedge; Piperlime Tinley Road Camel Black Striped Ponte Fit and Flare Dress; C. Wonder Pyramid Gold Stud Cuff; Banana Republic Flavia Foldover Clutch in Berry; J.Crew Crystal Color Stone EarringsSam Edelman Sutton Wedges — $87.99 (on sale!)

Whenever I go shopping, I make it a rule to only buy pieces that I can imagine myself wearing in at least two or three different outfits — a standard that helps me to prevent impulse purchases and saves me from buyer’s remorse later down the road.

Well, when I saw these these Sam Edelman wedges on sale, I immediately conjured up two different outfits: the first look still very much in a bright, summer mindset and the second being slightly toned down for fall.  I love the looks equally and have pretty much convinced myself that these wedges pass the test!  Leopard, after all, is a neutral. Which look is your favorite?

1. Forever 21 Twist Cutout Cuff — $8.80
2. Gap Colorblock Leather Envelope Clutch — $35.95 (on sale!)
3. Urban Outfitters Silky Scallop Hem Dress — $59
4. BaubleBar Ivory Sunburst Bib Necklace — $36
