Fashion Must Haves This Season

What Tops the Fashion List This Season?

Things you may never have the courage to don before but are ready to take on the challenge…like fur sweater vests, purses, or boots…metallic gold anything! The forever platform shoe, big hair, sparkly eye shadow in indigo…oh and matching fuchsia hair color. Rich leather skirts, short and long, as well as the chunky cardigan with long leather gloves and equally complimentary steel blue pencil jeans or cords.

Would you have thought to combine HOT pink with smoky gray? You might give it a second thought. The rule this season is to spice up a neutral with a bright color…and HOT Pink, Indigo, and Kelly green will do it this fall.

Layered looks never seem to fade away as the cooler weather settles in and this goes for jewelry as well. Have you heard of the Rule of 5 when it comes to jewelry accessorizing? Well, yes….at least 5 pieces along with your wardrobe, as you set out to conquer your day!

This Fall and Holiday season is seeing waves of Touchstone Crystal (Swarovski) Pave crystal expanded to include multiple metals mixed together, bronze being the biggest winner…layers on layers of large gauge gold pearl, around the neck, on the wrist and several layers of amber crystals culminating in a long yet delicate tassel.

Large Crystal cocktail rings never go out of style, nor do layered bangles…now in fall tones…gold, brown and burgundy. Add a satin ribbon or an organza bow to a festive Signature Touchstone Snowflake pin pendant and you have a standout look….how many snowflakes can you pin over your shoulder?….watch them cascade down!

If you are attending the more formal affair…dress up your little black (or navy) dress with statement Touchstone Crystal Strictly Ballroom Chandelier Earrings, and double up on the stunning Opening Night Dome ring, all hand set pave crystal.  Go bold with a piece that will appear worth $250,000 (not hardly!) the White Ice choker. Or follow a trend incoming from England…the Montana Blue or Windsor Blue Estate Pendant, crystal encrusted.

The “beauty” mindset comes deep from inside a woman. So often, its hidden, masked, forgotten, disguarded. Why not “Be Inspired” this season to choose one new idea and make it work just for you!
