Hope you take some of her tips and ideas to your wardrobe as I sure will!

Incorporating the Latest Fall Trends into Your Existing Wardrobe

"When you look good on the outside, you feel like a million bucks on the inside. You do not have to be a trend-setting, fashion diva to look great and feel good in the latest fall fashions!

We love our shoes! You can make a huge style statement this fall by adding a pair or two of metallic-capped-toe shoes to your shoe wardrobe. This bold trend combines the beauty of flashy gold and silver with other neutral and vibrant shades of color. A sky-high pair of metallic-capped stilettos will steal the spotlight and power at your next big board meeting. Capped shoes can also take you from a day at the office to a night out with friends with ease. Pair them with a brocade-patterned pencil skirt, a fitted cowl-neck top and a cropped cardigan to the office. Lose the cardigan and slip into a leather blazer or jacket for dinner and dancing with a few of your best girlfriends. All eyes will be on you in your flashy pumps when you hit the dance floor. 

The peplum dress trend is still a huge player for fall and winter! This season's peplum dresses are being done in fall-friendly patterns and warm fall colors. The runways are showing peplum dresses that feature blends of wool, lace and cashmere for added warmth and coziness. The peplum dress is a vintage-glam look that any woman can wear with confidence. Pair a bold-colored peplum dress with opaque tights and a pair of heels in a contrasting color for a glamorous look. You can also wear this style of dress to the office with tonal pumps, a long chain necklace and a pair of pearl earrings.

Statement earrings are another huge trend this fall and winter season. As a nod to the continued "Old Hollywood Glamour" trend, statement earrings are being worn in supremely feminine ways. A bold pair of jade or turquoise drop earrings steals the spotlight when worn with a basic black pair of skinny jeans and a white tank top. Finish off the look with slouchy ankle boots and a thin chain belt, and you will look and feel like a superstar.

Incorporating one to two new trends into your existing wardrobe will freshen up your closet and add some pizazz to your overall look and sense of style. Embrace one or more of fall's newest trends. You will turn heads."

I loved what Anya had to say to about new fall fashions, so i wanted to try out some of them for myself.

I recently found the cutest peplum top from Dillards and have been wearing it constantly! I have been pairing it with a navy scarf, skinnies, and some combat boots to toughen up the look. In the future, i want to pair it with a black pencil skirt, bright tights, and some booties, for a more sophisticated look. 

I love what Anya said about statement earrings, and grabbed these a few weeks ago for a event. They are from Francessca's Collections. These beauties are the perfect amount of wow factor you need in an outfit! 

I truly hope you try out one or more of these trends, and also check out Shoe Dazzle. Anya also has a blog that is super great as well. You will not regret it! Again, thanks so much to Anya Sarre for sharing with us some fashion wisdom!
