I’m so proud to say that Carmel + Vanilla had its first feature in an Arabic publication yesterday! Reine Bou Moussa- who is a journalist for Nahar Al Shabab interviewed me a few weeks back and we talked about my love for fashion and how Carmel + Vanilla came to be, among other things. I also contributed with an article for the publication that discussed Fall’s latest trends.

With Summer 2013 clearly coming to an end, it’s time for us to focus on Fall and uncover its trends. Follow my tips and tricks for looking fashionably stunning this upcoming season!
Make a statement this Fall with trendy coats; fur, over sized parkas, and strong leather pieces are sure to get you attention. When opting to wear a certain style, remember to consider the rest of your outfit. So let your coat take center stage and keep the other pieces simple!
Spring and Summer were all about the floral print. This Fall, replace this trend with more classic prints such as Houndstooth. Known to be a designer favorite, this print is office appropriate and also fashionable for an evening drinks and dinner with friends or colleagues. Own this classic look like a lady this season!
The leopard print seems to never go away and yes the Fall runways were still buzzing with it; feel free to try it in classic brown and black. Feeling more confident about this trend? Then go for it in striking colors such as pinks and reds! Remember that the trick to nailing a leopard look is not to overdo it, so incorporate one piece (blouse, skirt, or shoes) into your outfit.
If you haven’t heard yet, emerald was announced as the official color of 2013 late last year, which explains its excess appearance on the runways! Emerald is a great color that compliments almost all skin tones; wear it alone or mix it up with white or jewel tones to make a fashionable statement. You can also incorporate emerald into your wardrobe through eye-catching accessories; a structured bag or a pair of sexy stilettos will take you far this Fall.
We all start reaching for dark colors once the weather starts getting cold, don’t we? Newsflash: white is a classy and comforting color to wear during the colder months of the year. So make sure to include a white cashmere coat, a flirty LWD (Little White Dress), or even a pair of furry white boots to your Fall shopping list. To nail this look, opt for designs that are structured and fit your body; leave the loose and flouncy designs for next Summer!
I hope these tips add some glamour to your wardrobe this Fall! Trends aside, always remember to choose items that match your personal style and compliment your body shape. Happy shopping!
