Favorite Fall Fashion part 2

salaam!! :)

Sweater, Jeans: H&M
Leather Jacket: Boutique in NYC
Loafers: GAP

I know, its been a really really long time! I've been super busy with grad school and had no idea how overwhelming it would be!! I think I have settled in and getting better with time management so definitely more posts!! Here is part 2 of my favorite fall fashion. What perfect timing since yesterday was the first official day of autumn!:)

1. Leather, leather and more leather!!

I love leather all year round but fall is when you can really wear it on anything and everything (i think i say that too much..) Leather jackets have been around especially for fall for a while now and keep coming back. This year with studs and spikes. The new jacket style is the jacket sleeve contrast like the khaki jacket with the leather sleeves pictured above. I recently bought one myself! The leather banded watch is absolute essential--can never go wrong with it! If you're a little edgy then definitely opt for the studded/spiked leather jackets, bags and bracelets. Of course, can't forget the boots for fall!! Knee high boots are back. I have two pairs: black and the cogniac, like one pictured up. Either of them will go on any outfit for school or night out. The one above is a little more casual which would be more ideal for school! 

2. Military

Military is all over the runway for fall 2012. It has made appearances in the past but is now proving to be one of the strongest trends this season! This can be worn as a jacket, vest or shirt. I have been looking for a military vest but have not been able to find one yet! Military boots continue into this fall as well. This khakhi green color can also be worn as jeans and tops such as a button up.

3. Sweaters

Fall Sweaters

I can never get enough of these during the fall. Main reason why Fall is my favorite season because the fashion is just so cozy: layering, sweaters and warm boots--couldn't get any better! You can get light sheer sweaters that are perfect for layering or you can get thick cable knit sweaters for the cold fall days and for upcoming winter. I especially love printed sweaters with boots and skinnies. Its usually my go-to look for the fall! 

Thats it for today! I'm not sure what my next post is going to be...either college wear or a special mens wear post! I have not decided..depends on how cooperative my husband will be ;) If you guys have any suggestions or requests, please do tell!!

until next time,

Favorite Fall Fashion! (part one)

Salaam!! :)

Jumpsuit: Zara
Tux Blazer and Scarf: Forever 21
Clutch: Aldo

I know its been a little longer then usual but this post and the next one took some time to put together! Summer is near an end and as much as I loved the neon and bright colors, I'm really excited for Fall! This is my favorite season, partly because my birthday is during this time but mainly because of the beautiful colors (my room is even fall inspired!). There are many new fall fashion trends and can easily become hijab friendly! Here's how I plan to implement fall fashion into my wardrobe:)

1. Jewel Tones
(L'Wren Scott Jewel Tones)
Cobalt blue, ruby red, amethyst purple and emerald green: This is probably my favorite trend of all! So easy to implement any of these colors into your wardrobe. I already bought myself some ruby red and emerald green skinnies for only $12.95 from H&M! Here are some other ways in which you could wear these colors!! 

And of course you can always wear these colors as hijabs, jewelry, shoes and handbags. I sometimes have to control myself during this season cause I just love everything!!

2. Oversize Coats
This essential is back for this fall/autumn 2012. Capes from last year have made a return as well. I personally get jackets in the neutral family--black, brown, beige, gray or taupe so it is more wearable on a daily basis. My favorite part about this look is that underneath you can layer as much as you want--something I have to do on the coldest days of winter. This oversized jacket from Zara and cape from Macys are two of my favorites! 

3. Loafers
Fall Loafers
I cannot get enough of these!! So cute and comfortable. Can be found in every color and variety of prints. I recently received as a gift herringbone loafers from Gap and I love them! They're especially best for school/college. I think I'm going to invest in a pair of black ones as well--just cause a girl should have every item in black!

4. My Fall Color
Everywhere I've been seeing the "it" color for Fall 2012. I personally am in love with all them but my favorite color has to be this emerald green...hopefully I won't buy everything in this color! 

Thats it for now, inshAllah I'll post part two in a few days. I'll leave you all with some outfit ideas for Fall 2012 that I would wear! Enjoy :)

Fall outfits

The outfit on the left I would probably wear to class or even out for lunch whereas the outfit on the right I would wear on a night out or a special event!
Sweater Fall
Another one of my fall favorites--sweaters! It's still hot right now for these but in a month this going to be my staple look! If I could I wear boots all year around--however weather does not permit that. This is definitely a casual look I would wear to campus or a day out in the city!

hope you enjoyed
until next time,
