As promised, here follows my second blog post about this fall's fashion trends that have impressed me - fall essentials that is! The last post was mainly inspired by street styles, whereas this one is definitely more catwalk inspired. I've used Elle Finland's Collections attachment magazine as an inspirational source for this blog post. Patterns, colors, bags, accessories, jackets, skirts, knits - that's just some of this post's seven highlights! Can you guess the rest? Enjoy!
1) Big giant earrings
First of all, I've been widely inspired by the giant earrings I've been seeing everywhere! I love these ones from Balmain's fall collection 2013. I've picked up different colored metallic earrings that I'll show you in upcoming blog posts.
2) Chain handle bags
My favorite chain handle bags are the vintage ones. I myself found my black little cross-body chain bag earlier this summer, you might remember it from e.g. this blog post.
3) Pastel color wool jackets - inspired by Jonathan Saunders's fall collection 2013
I've never owned a pastel colored wool jacket, but this fall I've gone mad for a light blue one! I've already bought, and am now waiting for it to arrive in the mail! I can't wait to show it to you, even though it's still too warm to use it outside.
4) Satin skirts & woollen knits - inspired by Rochas' & Louis Vuitton' fall collection 2013
I'm a true skirt and dress lover, so no wonder that I fell immediately in love with these charming skirts! I didn't actually own any, but now I've managed to find two in second hand shops so I'll definitely be showing you some satin beauties this fall. I also love the combination of a satin skirt and woollen knits, this fall I'm especially fond of white oversize knits like I mentioned in my previous blog post.
5) Floral patterns - inspired by Lanvin's & Vera Wang's fall collection 2013
The summery floral glory continues in fall as flowers shine in fall patterns. I love floral dresses!
6) Scottish tartan - inspired by Stella Mccartney's & Celine's and Moschino's fall collection 2013
The woollen fabrics that are previously known as parts of men's suits are now also suitable for women! I've recently picked up a red skirt with this red version of the pattern, but I also managed to find a second hand jacket with the bigger pattern found in e.g. Stella Mccartney's fall collection and I'll definitely give it a try.
7) Red color - inspired by Dolce & Gabbana's fall collection 2013
Last, but definitely not least, comes the absolutely stunning fall collection of Dolce Gabbana that inspires me in so many ways! There isn't anything I wouldn't like in this collection. I love the bright color, the decorative materials, the crowns / headpieces and of course, our Finnish top model Suvi Koponen!
