Trend: tweed jackets
Need a quick way to dress up a t-shirt and jeans? Take some inspiration from one of Chanel’s most iconic pieces with your very own tweed jacket. Thankfully you won’t have to drop thousands of dollars for the original Chanel version as more accessible brands are churning out their own models. These jackets are sleek and full of personality when dressed up with cute brooches. The heavier tweed fabric also makes it the perfect piece for the transitional weather as it’ll keep you warm as the sun goes down.

Trend: Nude nails
Stay in touch with the changing fall colours and try your hand at nude nails. Nude nails are more subdued than the bright ombré nails you’ve probably been rocking all summer. To get the perfect colour, try looking for a beige hue that matches your skin colour. Like always, don’t forget to use a base coat to prevent your nails from turning yellow.

WTF: Loose knitted half ski masks
Most runway shows aim for at least a touch of theatrics. While I appreciate every bit of it, I just hope that some of the out-of-the-box looks don’t turn into trends. Take for example these Alexander Wang half ski masks from the Fall 2012 collection. Shown last February, I think it’s supposed to be a chic twist on the ski mask but the wind would go right through making it the most useless winter accessory.
