Guest Post: Anya Sarre

I've got a different kind of post for you today! I was contacted a few weeks ago by Anya Sarre about doing a guest post on my blog. She's a fashion stylist who has been featured on Entertainment Tonight, The Insider, and the STYLE network. She is also a stylist for ShoeDazzle, where she works with Kim Kardashian and other celebrity stylists. So neat!

So here's Anya Sarre!


Top Fashion Pairing Ideas this Fall

Every woman knows that when you look good, you feel good. The best way to get to a state of looking good is to start with feeling good about what you are wearing. Fall is the perfect time to allow fashionable clothing and accessories to accentuate the inner beauty you already possess. Express yourself with traditional and contemporary fashion trends this fall! See how the right outfit can send your self-confidence and sense of self-image through the roof!

When it comes to autumn this year, all eyes are on the latest arrivals to the catwalk and the red carpet. Models, actresses and performers of all sorts are imitating the changing of the leaves with vibrant red and orange hues paired with simple black and white accents.  If the brightness of crimson and orange seems overwhelming as the primary color for a full-length maxi dress or a long pair of skinny jeans, try a more neutral base spiced up with accents of these iconic fall hues. Sport a shorter dress in black and white print and pair with a flashy plum purple belt, creating a head turning look with two of this fall's most wearable and fashionable style elements. 

Another of the season's most popular fashion trends is the easy-to-wear, go-anywhere Bohemian print dress. This style, often paired with flowing, breezy synthetic textures and natural cotton, is one that fits any body type. Natural hues and paisley prints bring to mind the carefree feeling and earthy warmth of autumn while the vibrancy of pattern is evocative of swirling leaves and change. For a more casual look, pair a Bohemian print top with white or deep brown leggings and bangle bracelets. Work your look from the ground up with the perfect pair of shoes and finish off with strappy flats or a simple wedge. 

Tartan plaid is another one of the most sought-after styles of the fall season this year. Following in the footsteps of the undeniably vivid red theme, this timeless look revels in the boldness and vivacity of black and crimson. Pair a heavy, over sized plaid sweater with a black pencil skirt and you've got a classic look that never goes out of style.

If you are one of the many women who loves to dress up but prefers a more demure look, this fall offers a bevy of options perfect for you. The simple, pale gray dress is in this autumn season, drawing more attention to the grace of the feminine form than to the garment itself. For the cooler nights in fall, have fun with patterned tights and ankle boots, both of which pair exceptionally well with the simplicity of this must-have autumn outfit.

Just a few of these fall fashion essentials in your wardrobe will have you looking and feeling like a new woman. Mix, match and have fun with the season and the incredible style trends it brings.


Thanks so much Anya! I hope you all enjoyed this post and will try out some of these fall fashion trends yourself!
