Trendsetters have fueled the sartorial world with throngs of eye-popping looks. From oxblood to leather, peplum, studs, metallics and much more, I’m lusting for all the season’s styles. Combining Fall 2012 wardrobe staples into many fashion-forward ensembles is definitely the way to go! While Valentino contrasts soft feminine lace against hard-hitting leather for a refined LBD, McQueen’s oxblood leather jacket with sleek epaulettes and zip-fastening cuffs makes an exquisite addition to any fashionista’s wish list! Sporting oxblood from head-to-toe creates a powerful statement, yet combing peplum with lace, studs and timeless pieces renders a gamut of head-turning silhouettes. But the simplicity and classic pallet of my latest editorial pick has the potential to survive an endearing closet life and make an array of striking outfits!
