1. Check out the trending sections at popular stores. This time of year, stores like Nordstrom and Bloomingdales are ALL about Fashion Week. These are two among many websites that have a ton of inspired looks from the runway shows. I always check out their trending sections and find so many good things there; at all price points too! A lot of stores will begin to do this also, so it's super easy as fashion season goes on to find trends. P.S. have you seen the adorable leopard prints that are all over this season?! Obsessed.
2. Choose by color palette. Different seasons have different popular color combos; this season there seem to be lots of deep reds and burgundy shades, jade greens and shades of taupe. There's also a ton of floral patterns which I LOVE! Take this and go to any store you like shopping at - I guarantee you'll see lots of the same! You can create your own looks inspired by fashion week just by picking shades from the same popular color palettes.
3. Check out your favorite stores first. I don't know about you, but I definitely have a set list of my favorite stores and places I like to shop... Before you think you have to go out of your comfort zone, see what your favorite places have. I was shopping with my sister in Forever 21 last week and I saw a TON of similar fashion week styles there!
4. Use online sources like FlashFrames. I wish websites like this existed for every single accessory and clothing item in the world! FlashFrames is an awesome online source that allows you to upload a picture of a pair of sunglasses you've seen (like on the runway), and based on the pair you've chosen, FlashFrames will give you a selection of similar frames at all different price points. From here, they'll take you to trusted retail websites to purchase which ever pair you pick. It's the coolest thing - and a way that I find a LOT of my sunnies!
