The advent of fall comes with the question – what will I be wearing this fall and winter? This year’s fashion trends are a hodge-podge of diversity in silhouette and style— romanticism and structure with a little far out galaxy for those who dare to be different.

Accessories:

Bags will feature statement straps. Micro bags and oversized bags along with day clutches.
Accessories should include berets, wide belts, oversized earrings, oblong sunglasses and for a dramatic flair think feathers to dress up your look. Shoes will feature statement heels, be clear plastic or traditional Mary Janes and loafers. Boots will be slouchy or floral.

With no defining point of view, and the choice of so many fabulous looks, here are some things to look for:
Oversized blazers with shoulder pads, yes shoulder pads.
Colors will be softer than the neon shades of the 80’s, though.
Velvet in bold jewel tones.
Statement sleeves – for summer we saw the shoulders and this fall, not so much.
Political statement tees
All over silver is back – often looking like Mylar.
Corduroy – it comes back every couple of years because most women love the look.
Multicultural looks from countryside traditions.
Power Suits – often double breasted (love the look, not all can wear it).
Shearling – who doesn’t love outerwear made with this plush wool.
Puffers – continue their dominance, now in a variety of rainbow colors.
Track pants for day or night.
Plaids and check on all clothing
most notably on coats.
The color red is the defining hue for 2017.

Fashion is touting a throwback to the 80’s but 2017 seems to offer so many more options that are available to today’s woman. No longer are you beholden to just one style. You can make a fashionable statement with so many choices – how great is that!

BEEF STROGANOFF As the temperatures start to fall, comfort food is what motivates me to my kitchen. Saucy, savory, belly-warming comfort food tastes so well, comforting., especially after a summer of fresh fruits and vegetables lightly and quickly grilled on the patio.   My first cold-weather dish this year was Beef Stroganoff.  It certainly did not
