FALL/WINTER 2011-2012 MUST-HAVE CLOTHING

1. CAPES - Lately I have been obsessed with capes. So far I have three capes in my closet. Two of which I bought and the other one was a gift from a friend. So, why do I love these? Well, I like its versatility. Most capes you can wear several ways. So it's value for your money. And I think it looks chic and modern. Here are two capes that I'm fancying at the moment.

2. LEATHER JACKETS - Ok, enough of that motorcycle James Dean jacket. Here are some great alternatives to have a very modern progressive look. So, the key words to take into consideration while shopping for the perfect jacket are the following-distressed, drapey and buttery soft. Don't ever sacrifice quality whenever you're buying a leather jacket. It's better to have only ONE PERFECT jacket than to have several ill-fitting and cheap-looking ones. Believe me I can smell a faux leather jacket even if you're standing a mile away from me!

3. BAGGY TROUSERS - This season trade those skinny jeans for a roomier pair of trousers. During the holidays it's okay to live a little and binge on your favorite dessert! Just make sure your pants can accommodate all the calories honey!

6. THREE QUARTER LENGTH COAT - Obvisoulsy, not everybody can pull off a three-quarter length coat or jacket.  But if you are tall and lanky then this is an amazing look! I got one at Monki last year and I totally adore it. It looks sexy and masculine.

7. ANYTHING DRAPEYLICIOUS - Both my Mom and I are big fans of anything drapey. If you don't have anything drapey in your closet then you better make sure to get one this season. It just adds flavor to a dull ensemble. It sort of spices things up. But make sure not to overdo it. Because like everything else too much of something is not good for you! So make sure to take everything in moderation honey!
