Ever since last year’s preview, I’ve been a huge fan of Billabong/West 49 and their new fashion direction. Last month, I got a chance to preview the store’s Fall 2011 collection, and once again, I didn’t leave disappointed.
If you liked my Billabong Intarsia sweater that I picked up last year, now is your chance to get a similar one, since there are plenty of navajo-inspired pieces coming in for fall (cardigans, coats, tops, socks…you name it). Another huge trend for fall at Billabong is bodycon – with pieces perfect for layering.
If you’re shopping for your back to school essentials, make sure to check out Billabong’s selection of bags and backpacks – my faves include damask and heart-printed bags – perfect for toting around all of your heavy school supplies. And if you’re in the market for a watch – then look no further than Nixon watches – which come in a variety of colors and finishes. The especially cool ones have a white finish, that tarnishes with time, to reveal a gold or silver metal underneath – this one goes on my fall must-have list for sure!
Most pieces are in stores already, and thank goodness – because with these chilly temperatures, I am definitely going to need to update my closet for fall ASAP. Happy Shopping!
