WTF? What's The Fashion? Nude Overlays

The intricate grid lines on these designer or designer-inspired ensembles (similar pieces can be found in a Jessica Simpson collection) can make a nude overlay dress a little more willing to wear even when not being worn to a red carpet affair. A vague overlay allows the wearer to accentuate every curve while a more detailed lace pattern hides a little more of the nude. Pair with a traditional black or nude closed-toe heel and add diamond or gold jewelry to accomplish a very sweet and simple yet chic and classic late fall ensemble.

WTF? What's The Fashion? Egyptian-Inspired Collar Chokers

Wrap your collar bone with a statement choker whose inspiration is traced all the way back to ancient Egypt. With it's sleek design, this quite modern choker necklace is meant to be worn comfortably tight against the throat. Whether worn with a more structured design or nontraditional with Egyptian inspired gems, these necklaces can enhance many kinds of outfits and look sensational with all hair lengths, long or short, down the back or up off the shoulders. While this type of necklace can hide some flaws, it can enhance others. A wide choker can make the neck appear longer but too wide of a choker, your neck can appear shorter. Egyptian chokers can be worn particularly well with off-the-shoulder styles or tops with boat necklines. They are also stunning with v-neck cocktails dresses and show off best when accompanied by matching earrings of the same metallic color or complimentary gem stones. As seen worn on the red carpet, you too can embrace your love for the legendary and desirable Cleopatra to your most glamorous affair.

WTF? What's The Fashion? Boho Hobos

Bohemian style is truly a fashion that I absolutely adore. I always like to experiment with printed-heavy trends but the safest way to do that especially when you just want to give a trend a taste is to incorporate it within an accessory instead of committing to a complete ensemble. What other better way of testing a trend than with a handbag that you use everyday? Boho prints are cool, casual and free-spirited, but the best part is that it can be worn by any woman and look incredible whether you want casual chic or a hippie vibe. The one major thing that bohemian styles are not about are restrictions, meaning that you should not limit your boho-inspired hobo to warmer weathers when you can embrace the changing colors of fall just like the autumn appeal a decorated hot hued boho bag has. With a riot of colors and prints in full flair, let your boho hobo be the only accessory that can truly give your look some flavor. Keep away from pairing your purse with other prints like Heidi but instead let it be the forefront of a nude background. Keep the rest of your accessories universal with chunky bangles and a layered or pendant necklace. Or opt for long feather earrings, multiple funky rings and a fun ankle bracelet. Keep your hair natural or give it the runway wet look. Also don't forget when stepping out with a boho carry-all around your shoulder to place on your face a pair of oversized round or square sunnies.

WTF? What's The Fashion? Elbow-Patches

I personally was never a fan of patches on clothes. They remind me of quick fixes on tattered clothing or a boring college professor. But somehow, elbow patches have become fashion-forward especially in fall and winter sweater-coats and jackets. It can elevate an ordinary clothing piece or add an collegiate vibe to a bleacher seat ensemble. Regardless, keep the remainder of the outfit simple to properly wear this conservative elbow adornment.

WTF? What's The Fashion? Rise & Fall Hemlines

 What I genuinely love about skirts and dresses with a rise and fall hemline is that it is extremely modern and yet elegant. With this particular type of hemline it has created the perfect styling to make you feel the highs and lows of it. It's fun and flirty yet romantic and whimsical. But I think what I like the most about this style is that no matter where you look at it from, it looks different from every angle giving it a bit of je ne sais quoi. Add some edge with a strappy ankle sandal just to give this motion-enhanced ensemble a tad bit more drama.

WTF? What's The Fashion? Pastel Pink Dresses

Pink~ I thought pink would've been the last color to appear as a trend for the upcoming winter season. However, since winter white is such a classic favorite for the season, I can see why pastel pink would not be too far behind. Reflecting back to Easter and for endless springs before that, pastel colors have played such an incredible role in everyday spring and come to find out, winter fashion. What has made pastel pink such a traditional wardrobe color scheme a trendsetter this season? It's using them with a bit of edge by adding certain colors to keep away from incorporating a ballerina outfit. Harden this pretty, prissy barbie color and play up your precious style in "metallic colors" like silver and grays or add some unsuspecting details with black. These hues combined with a pastel pink ensemble will add some sheen and sharpness. Give your lips a bold red pout and you are fresh, chic and ready to go!

WTF? What's The Fashion? Key-Hole Fashions

Regardless if you want to show a hint of skin or give an eye-full of cleavage, playing peek-a-boo with a top or dress has got you covered . . . well of sorts. Fashion designers are always on the lookout for inspiration to create something new and that can vary from the smallest change in lines and drapes to cuts and alterations that offer stunning looks. Keyhole fashions has been a popular trend that has lasted for decades tracing its popularity back to the 1940s, only evolving as the years go by. Keyhole necklines with a je ne sais quoi appeal have also a comfortable, yet stylish and feminine feel to them without being vulgar. While these keyholes can be seductive, they can also be intriguing ranging from casual day wear to party evening wear. Its versatility can be a simple slit in the neck in the front of a blouse or a daring wide opening within the back of a dress secured at the top with a hook and eye or loop and button. For you do-it-yourself fashionistas, this circle or oval shaped cut-out is fairly easy to make or convert.

WTF? What's The Fashion? Floppy Hats

The floppy hat is a seasonal staple that has transitioned from the spring and summer into the fall and winter. These wide brimmed hats are perfect for the rainy and snowy days that lie ahead, while still protecting your face from the sunrays. This item is an absolute must to have in your closet especially with fall already here and winter quickly approaching, the oversized hat adds smartness and street-style to a pant suit you would wear while traveling or with a bohemian-inspired ensemble consisting of maxi-skirt, a cowl-neck top layered over a tunic tank, wrapped with a skinny belt and structured ankle wedges. Of course, you know Kimmie's look is by far my favorite and Ms. Song is incredibly chic and adorable. What do you think?
