A Big Night of Fall Fashion Yields Fresh Inspiration

PLUS meet local Fashion Bloggers, Yashi and Felisha

Fabulous fashion minds came to together for an evening of style, showcasing chic boutiques and popular local influencers at a recent street style photo shoot, held in the exclusive Como Social Club overlooking the shimmering lights of The Woodlands Waterway, located at the Westin Hotel at The Woodlands.

Attended by The Woodlands area’s top fashion bloggers, the event was hosted by the Westin’s Kelly McCourt and directed by style coordinator Melissa D'Mello, with the crucial expertise of fashion photographer Lenora Stein, hair stylist Adriana Vasquez and makeup artist Madison Simpson.  The result is a go-to photo “stylebook” of on-trend outfits and accessories, providing the perfect inspiration for putting together your new fall look!

A great pair of jeans is worth a thousand words. Denim makes it easy to transition into the fall fashion season. And since jeans go on a bit of a hiatus during the peak heat of summer, you’ll be ready to break out your favorite pair as soon as the temps begin to dip!

If you’re looking for inspiration to fuel your fall outfits, feast your eyes on the denim ensembles featured here. These fresh looks have instant eye appeal but are still everyday smart, and they’re easy to recreate by pairing new purchases with pieces you already own. The latest shoe trends, fun tees sporting your favorite pop culture memes, flashy long jackets, and the “it” shirt that everyone will be tucking into those stylish blues--this is your ultimate guide to fall denim.

A flirty mini-cut dress typically screams “summer,” but when it’s featured in warm neutrals, feminine floral prints or bold autumn colors, it can take you well into October--the ideal piece to rock with tall boots, booties, and (Always!) your go-to pair of cowboy boots.

Speaking of boots, this fall the trusty boot is more ubiquitous than ever. Stylish knee-highs take center stage for the season, strutting their stuff in metallics, animal prints, bold colors--and even in white. And since Western boots are a wardrobe staple here in Texas, maybe this is the year that you finally treat yourself to an amazing pair of custom boots (See our story this issue about the perfect place to find these)

This fall’s fresh takes on evening wear offer femininity as well as energy and excitement. From sassy flounce dresses and tiered ruffles to maxi dresses in sleek satins and silks, with plunging v-necks and v-backs. Other Instagram-worthy trends include intricately pleated gowns made of sheer georgette fabrics and the drama of dresses featuring bold “statement” patterns.


Yashi is a 30-year-old Houstonian who’s originally from India. Working as a photographer among fashion influencers, he noticed the lack of male content creators, and in 2018 decided to take the plunge and start his own blog. Now, as a part-time fashion blogger and full-time fashion photographer, Yashi knows what’s hot, He describes his personal style as trendy and casual, yet sophisticated.

Yashi is inspired by the many fashion influencers that he connects with both online and as a photographer. He said that one of his current fashion obsessions is floral print shirts and shirts with eye-catching patterns. At the top of his list of trending fall fashions are the latest jackets and coats.

Felisha is a 24-year-old Spring native who pursues her love of fashion and photography while also attending nursing school. She said that her personal style is feminine, classy and colorful and that she draws inspiration for her vintage-inspired look from the many Hollywood starlets of the classic movie era.

Felisha said that currently she’s crushing on mini-bags, dainty jewelry and scarf tops. Trending fall styles that she can’t wait to wear include berry lips, sweater vests, square-toed shoes, and anything in jewel-tone colors.
