As it is now September, though you can’t tell it from the temperature today, it’s time to talk about what will be the hot trends for the coming season. Before I give you details, I just want to say something about trends. First and foremost, your style should reflect who you are. That means you don’t have to run out and pick up the latest trends to define your style. Your personal style communicates who you are and that should be your first priority.
The fall trends that are appearing in stores are a mix of styles this year; a bit of something for everyone. You will see the return of the ‘50s trend of full skirts and swing jackets for the feminine element. Think Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn. If the ‘50s aren’t your style, how about the ‘60s with the minimal style detail, high neck and neutral shades, or the ‘80s with the boxy jacket, padded shoulders and attention to details. This is just a little on the fall trends to get you started with more to come over the coming weeks.
As an added feature, every month I will be calling upon other women to write a guest piece for this blog. These are women who are in the know of personal style and how it relates to your self-esteem. Helping you look great translates into making you feel great and when you feel great, you can accomplish anything you set out to do.
Now on to Peggy, our guest blogger of the month, to tell us about the upcoming season in jewelry………
There is a saying – “Life is too short to wear boring jewelry” – and I couldn’t agree more! Whether dressing up for a night on the town or dressing down to run errands around town, I’ve always felt accessorizing completes my look and makes me feel special.
At heart, I am a blue jeans, boots and sweater girl – and when the leaves begin to change color and the air becomes crisp in early fall that’s what you’ll find me dressed in 90% of the time! While I might wish I could live in them all the time, admittedly it’s not always practical. However, the wonderful thing with jewelry is that you can change your look in an instant. Perhaps your day is starting with the preschoolers at the pumpkin patch or running those dreaded errands, followed by a networking lunch, and winding down with dinner out with your guy. No problem! In the morning with your jeans and turtleneck wear a mixed metal pendant, earrings and a few bangles. For lunch switch out your jeans for a pair of straight-legged pants and a blazer and add a chain or two with your pendant. Before heading out to meet your guy go back to your jeans, add dressy boots or heels, slip on a couple of shell pearl bracelets with the bangles , your favorite ring and some sexy dangly earrings. Simple perfection all in the course of one day!
For fall 2014, jewelry trendsetters are showing open cuffs, medallion pendants, multi-chain necklaces and bracelets and delicately designed cuffs and bangles.
I am Peggy Burrows, jewelry rep for esbe Designs – handcrafted jewelry designed exclusively by American designer Sara Blaine. That passion for wanting just the right piece for the outfit I’m wearing is one reason that lead me to Sara’s jewelry in the first place, and culminated in my becoming a rep for esbe Designs.

Right on trend and right for your pocketbook, you will be a fall statement wherever you go.
