My 5 Favorite Fashion Trends for Fall .... in Crochet!

Fall is my favorite season for fashion. From the color scheme, to the stunning shapes of boots, to the interesting textile choices, I feel the urge to shop and to take my time getting dressed more during the fall than any other time of year. I have a little shopping trip planned for this weekend, but wanted to put my own spin on Elle's Most Wearable Trends of the season by finding as much of them as I could in crochet items!

1. Mustard Hues

Elle's Version:

This cape is pretty perfect in my book. Pair it with the most stunning dress or a fitted tee and jeans.

2. Rust Colored Jacket

This amazing maxi skirt can be yours from SansLimitesCrochet for only $175. Trust me when I say that's a steal when it comes to the craftmanship!

My Version:
Everytime I see work from LiveinStyle I want to snatch it up ASAP. This black lace peice is no exception and truly is just a touch of lace. So stunning!

5. Jade Green

My Version:
I'm not sure what it is, but jade is such a hard color to come by. I have an affinity with the color (and stone) since Jade is my middle name ;). I thought it would be cool to transpire this fashion idea into more of a standard accessory. Jade is pretty all year round and so is this neckwarmer from KubukiKreations!
