A Few of My Favorite Things

Although December is the season of giving, it’s also the season to save. If you’re like me, you’re breathing a sigh of relief now that Christmas is over (phew). Dec. 25th has come and gone, but I still have gifts to buy for friends, family, and a few things for myself too.

I’m excited to share a few of my favorite deals with you. Check back tomorrow for more faves for men, women, pets, and kids. These deals won’t last, so strike while the iron is still hot! There is still just under a week of savings for so many stores. Check out some of my favorite items on Instagram and down below (@akcstyle.com).

How to Rock Your Chelsea Boots

Another women’s footwear trend informed by menswear is the Chelsea boot.  This classic boot is known for its sleek and modern cut.  A Chelsea boot is the finishing touch to any fall look. 

Most leather and suede Chelsea boots tend to look unisex by design, so there are many versions of this style as well.  Generally, the pointer the toe box is, the more feminine your Chelsea boots will look.  A square toe box is considered more masculine in this style.

Chelsea boots instantly give your legs a long, lean silhouette, and are best worn with skinny jeans.  Wearing a tighter fitting pant or jean which hugs your calves, really emphasizes your overall silhouette, and calls attention to your footwear.  Make a chic statement this fall in a Chelsea boot.

Romantic Renaissance

From elements of delicate sheer fabrics and lace, to dramatic draping and excessive use of feathers and pearls.  This fall 2019 trend brings the age of renaissance and excess back, in the most romantic ways.  This ultra-feminine, dark, romantic-feeling trend ties all the best parts of the Renaissance-era together in a modern package.  High necklines and low hemlines are updated through use of sheer fabrics and intricate lace detailing in blouses and skirts.

This fall brings so many versatile trends! From metal elements, to the brightest neons, and 70s’ inspired work wear. Click each link to get the full scope of the fall trends you need to know about.

Metallic & Metal

This trend is a perfect mix of Metallica and Nirvana, taking the best elements from heavy metal, rock-n-roll style, and grunge. We’re seeing tons of metallic and heavy metal details on everything from dresses to jackets, pumps to boots, and all sorts of accessories.  With these details you’re guaranteed an all access pass this season.

The 70s Twist

Take your best boho-inspired pieces and layer them for a great homage to the decade of patterns and prints.  Mix-and-match your casual bomber jackets and maxi skirts to livin’ up your work wardrobe. 

Keep it comfortable, keep it sophisticated, and stay on trend in your 70s’ inspired looks.

The Neon Trend

High impact, bold and brave, fluorescent colors mainly pink, green, orange, blue and yellow.  Think of your favorite color highlighter you used to mark your textbooks.  This trend is eye-catching to say the least. 

Definitely not for the faint of heart.  If sporting a head-to-toe neon look is not your style, opt for high pigment accessories or shoes to participate in this trend.
