Untamed Style Chats Fall Trends: Animal Attraction

“Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.” ― Lauren DeStefano

Summer is almost gone, so it’s about that time to start chatting fall fashion. Besides looking forward to cooler temperatures and the changing leaves, most of us can’t wait to see what’s new in fashion this season. I love maxis and sandals, but a sweater dress and boots — “yes, please!”

Since there are so many awesome trends going on in clothes and accessories we decided to make this an Untamed Style collaboration:

My girl Aarti from Curves Become Her will be taking on the Velvet trend. It’s plush, it’s very 90’s and it’s everywhere this season.

We’re talking fall, we’re talking colors, we’re talking teal. Margot from Margot Meanie gives us the scoop on this gorgeous color trend.

Accessories are an important part of any outfit. So our eclectic diva, Michelle from Glitter In the Dirt will be schooling us on fall’s love child — the scarf.

These are not your momma’s neutrals! Pia from Chronicles of a Mixed Fat Chick shows us how to add classic colors with a twist of fab to our fall wardrobe.

The fun thing about fashion is the ability to think outside the box. So this month Veronica from Cid Style File is showing us how to incorporate not one, but three fall style trends into one look.

And me? Today I’ll be chatting ANIMAL PRINTS.

My lovelies, this fall we’ll be taking our inner  fashionista for a walk on the wild side.


I think Jenna Lyons said it best– “as far as I’m concerned, leopard is a neutral.” So if you’re hunting for a way to spice up your closet this fall, then this print might just be the thing for you:
