Capsule Wardrobe and the Hottest Trends in LA

I am so excited to bring to you guys a collaboration this Friday! I am collaborating with Danielle Davis from! As crazy as it is I knew Danielle when I was living in North Carolina and dancing at Greenville Civic Ballet. I have known Danielle since 8th grade so I was about 13 years old! Danielle runs a fabulous styling and organizing business and if you live in NC then you must contact her for her services! To start us off Danielle is going to talk about a capsule wardrobe and I will be discussing the hottest fall trends in LA right now!colAs as Closet Consultant and Personal Stylist, I enjoy seeing ladies try the capsule wardrobe trend. I’ll be honest, I don’t think I would love a wardrobe that followed this trend throughout each season. However, if split up into separate seasons, I might would give it a try.

What I love most about this idea is: simplicity. Who here is guilty of conforming to the average American consumerist mindset of “the more the better”?  (*Insert girl raising hand emoji here*) Yes, I personally struggle with this issue. “More what?” you may ask? More…EVERYTHING!  I always want what is on trend for the season or the latest version of an item. Because of this, I’ve come up with the #1 rule for myself to follow when deciding to add the latest and greatest item to my closet: When something new enters, then something old must leave. — This helps keep things organized and avoid accumulating too many things I once thought were must-haves.

Tired of what’s in your closet but not sure how to update it? Follow this guide I’ve provided on how to make 6 pieces into 9 outfits. I like to think of it as my own personal twist to the capsule wardrobe trend.dds6 pieces Danielle used: DenimWhite Button UpBlack BlazerChambray ShirtCowl Neck SweaterBlack Shift Dress ddsb4 Bags: Studded ClutchBarrel BagOversized ToteTassel Bucket Bag

Fall trends are in full swing in LA even though there is a heat wave currently happening! Three huge trends are stated below and links to shop them!

Lace-Up Everything

In LA it is all about lacing-up everything possible, from shirts to skirts to shoes. I personally love lace-up shoes! The lace-up trend is so popular because it is new and unexpected! It adds spice instantly to any outfit.

Mid-Calf Booties

Mid-Calf Booties are a rather newer trend I have been seeing around town. They are right in between the ankle bootie and the knee-high boot. A lot of celebrities have been spotted in these as well, such as new style icon Kendall Jenner.

All About Necks

Even though it is still not too cold in LA (and by that I mean I’m still sweating my butt off at 90 degrees) everyone seems to be obsessed with necks! Whether it be turtle necks, tie neck shirts, or scarfs, necks are a major focus for this fall in LA.
