TREND SPOTTING: EMERALD GREEN

Pantone announced that emerald green would be the color of the year for 2013, and the fashion industry definitely followed suit.  From clothing, shoes, bags, and jewelry, this lush jewel tone is popping up everywhere, and we are not complaining. Emerald is a radiant hue that pairs perfectly with the rich tones of fall.  But does emerald green look good on everyone?

HOW TO WEAR IT: LAYER A WHITE DRESS FOR FALL

  Just because the fall season is upon does not mean you need to put everything white in your closet into storage. We understand why the "no white after labor day' rule came about, white clothes do look amazing against tan skin and bright summer colors, but don't put your trusty LWD (little white dress) away just yet. Fall is all about layering, so layer some cold weather staples over (or under) your LWD and you're in business! For a polished look for the office or a special occasion,

WARDROBE STAPLES: FALL TRANSITION

Although summer is one of our favorite seasons, we are so excited for the upcoming change of the seasons because of two little words: fall fashion. Any reason to go shopping is fine by us, and although swapping out summer clothing staples for more season appropriate styles is imperative, accessories are perhaps our most favorite thing to shop for. You rarely need to try them on in order to know if they fit, and they can instantly elevate almost any outfit from drab to fab. Although a straw hat

TREND SPOTTING: HIGH COLLAR FIT AND FLARE DRESS

If we had to pick one trend we intend on stocking up on this fall, it would have to be the high collar fit and flare dress.

The trick is to find the transitional items that can work for either season. Since clothing that offers more coverage in muted tones are usually more popular in the fall, scope out the summer finds that fit that description. We saved you this step at Piperlime's

Whether you're heading back to school, starting a new job, or going to a work conference this fall, making a strong first impression is vital. It's important to look poised and professional, but also stand out in the crowd. Try pairing a blazer in a bold hue with a neutral dress and accessories like this look from Rachel Bilson. The structured tailoring of the jacket will keep you looking polished without coming off as boring or uptight. A loose sheath with a drawstring like this one from H&M
