Looks to Keep

by kristy

It’s nearly impossible to pick a favorite look that Giovanna Battaglia has put together. She has this way about her where it looks like she just threw it on and walked out the door. Gio’s inimitable sense of color and mixing glam and casual inspires millions. There has been plenty of times where I can’t figure out what to wear and i’ll try to emulate one of her looks. The fist two segments of photos show how she impeccably took a skirt from spring/summer to fall/winter . Same with her shirt dress. She is a great example of how layers can change the look of one piece completely. Oh the things that I would do to get even 30 minutes in her closet…..

Fall fashion for 2012 verdict is in. Fortunately for your wallets and sanity some pieces from seasons past are still going strong. Here are a few pieces that you may already have in your wardrobe that you can mix and match to create new “in style” looks with.

One of my favorite fabris from my child hood is Velvet. This season you can find it on skirts, medical blazers, for sale dresses and more.

Mostly in vibrant colors “south western” prints are a great way to add some color and/or print to any outfit.

Comfortable and fashionable. Channel your inner Hugh Hefner but minus the robe. Wear with denim or a dress.

Plaids remain on shirts, case jackets, blazers and skirts.


Day clutches are a easy way to dress up an outfit without over doing it.

Hands free carryall. The cross body bag is cute and convenient.

Color blocking. Mixing bold colors is fun and stylish.

This chic piece has been a staple for years and will continue to stay in style. Capes are a fun alternative to any fall jacket.

floral pants

Floral remains on the top of the list. Tried and true this feminine print is being carried into the fall/winter. Mix it with masculine pieces like chunky knits or leather.
