Dare of the day: fall trends all week long

Summer days may be coming to an end, but that also means that Fashion New Year has arrived. Fall presents all sorts of new beginnings: new schoolyear, new cooler temps, but most of all, it's time for new trends in the fashion world. Here's a challenge to you to step out with a fashion dare each day of the week: 

Monday: Silk plaid blouse. Plaid is a fall classic, but things have gotten more exciting this season. Plaid prints on silky blouses are coming up everywhere. It's a much more feminine take on the lumberjack-inspired fall trend, and totally work-appropriate. Plus, it's a great transitional top, light enough to start wearing now.

Tuesday: Full pleated skirt. After a break from A-line styles, the classic pleats are back in session. Black keeps the look from getting to frilly. Pair with cable-knit tights and booties for an updated look.

Wednesday: Statement necklace. No longer in the fruity pastels of spring, this fall's statement necklaces are showing up with a darker edge. Baroque-inspired darker gems, mixed metals, and hefty scales are the new norm. Paired with your trusty basics (a simple blouse, a black shift, a white tee), this speeds up your morning prep and keeps you on trend.

Thursday: Vegan leather moto jacket. By now, we're just ready for a quick, no-fuss outfit. Just like a trusty denim jacket, you can throw this over just about anything you've already got. Try it over a flouncy dress to translate it into fall wear.

Friday: Distressed skinny jeans. Take Casual Fridays a step further and rock the rips. Keep your standard dark-wash skinnies around, but the look for fall is distressed. Perfect for date night when paired with a feminine, flowy top.

Saturday: Wide-brimmed wool hat. Embrace second-day hair for a laid-back Saturday. Paired with classic pieces like a tee and jeans, these hats are a bit moody and chic. Perfect for strolls through farmer's markets or out antiquing.

Sunday: Track pants. These comfy guys are more than just sweatpants. Pair with a graphic tee and Thursday's moto jacket for an updated look that takes you from the football field to the pub afterwards!
