How about accessorizing your outfit with a striped scarf and a polka dot Brahmin bag? Add a  blazer and this outfit becomes a versatile set. You can always dress it up with a nice pair of trousers. I’m comfortable going almost anywhere in jeans!

Are you looking for a subtle casual spring look with stripes? Then here’s a fun idea for your wardrobe! The denim jacket over this stripe sundress and ankle booties is a nice transition to the cooler, yet also warmer, weather that will soon be upon us. Yaaaaaay… cheering section!

It seems that labeled tees is still very much part of today’s look. Would you be comfortable wearing this? Being a huge Beatles fan, (I went to two of their concerts and had quite the experience back stage – you can read the story here) I had no choice but to use this tee with The Beatles logo on it! I’m also loving this fun print chiffon flowing skirt!

Polka dots and stripes still make a fun statement for the 2012 fall fashion scene. Add a studded handbag and you’ve got a great look. Studs are accenting jackets, pants, accessories and shoes this season,  bringing back the punk/biker retro look of  the 70s and 80s. In 1974 a favorite outfit of mine had studs on the pant seam and matching jacket… it was very cool! Fashion always seems to recycle, incorporating a modern, updated take. Here are a couple of outfits with studded accessories.

Yes – I’m definitely loving this Nine West studded handbag. The plum colored tights coordinate nicely with the dark gold striped Madewell skirt and H&M mittens.

Each of these outfits has a unique flair; it’s a draw as to which is my favorite.  But, I’m leaning toward the second… I really love those tights, and the grey sweater rocks!

So, I’d love to hear from you. Which outfit would you wear? Are you wearing any of the great colorful choices in opaque tights this fall?
