It’s definitely a bit early to start stockpiling fall duds. But that doesn’t mean you can’t start collecting your thoughts and building an inspiration board so that you have a good jumping-off place when you do begin to start shopping. Living in NYC, space is limited so I can’t always create an elaborate inspiration board of magazine clippings, fabric samples or pictures. My tech-savvy and style-friendly answer is pinterest! It allows me to create an online inspiration board-everything in one place and able to be traced back for easy shopping. Here’s a peek at mine:

As you can see, I am loving the combination of bright hues like Cobalt and Goldenrod against a saturated neutral like Cognac. You can still find me colorblocking, but this time it will always involve a deep neutral anchor. Vintage prints and silks always keep Fall from being too frumpy, and there’s nothing like a simple shoe to keep the focus all about the clothes.
What Fall trends are calling your name? Do you create inspiration boards a la pinterest or the old fashioned way?
