Fall is my favorite time of the year here in Portland. It's a time when my personal style really shines!

Layers, boots, and cozy successories are essential components of my everyday looks.

Here are a few fall trends that can be translated to just about any body type with the right styling:

The Skater Dress
Great for creating a more defined waist for the H body type (when shoulders and hips are the same width) and hiding and defining for the O body type (also known as apple). And of course hour glass body types completely werk the shape.

The Leather Skirt
Fierce and strong, the leather skirt can add a little bounce to your step. Pencil or pleated circle skirts are current trends that can play up any body type. Add a dark purple lip to the combo for a racy on-trend look!

The Kimono
Not necessarily a fall trend, but a great transition piece nonetheless. The kimono can hide and define for all body types. Try a body con dress with a long flowing kimono for a luxe look, or add as a statement piece for a lazy tee and jeans look. Either way you can't fail!
