This week marked the beginning of fall and although fall trends for 2017 made their debut on the Runway months ago, we're just now seeing the new looks hit the racks in stores all over the world. Because we were still suiting the gingham top, flared denim, and the culotte jumpsuits when the models rocked the new looks on the Runway, we've had a little time to adjust to the changes and decide if this is really the statement direction we want to take. Now that we've finally gotten past that hump of 90 degree weather in late September, autumn is here to stay and we can finally focus on the new trends that'll call our closets home.

Metallic is back. We see it every year, but only ever springing its way around the corner come New Years. But this fall, you'll be able to see this shiny statement look all over. These futuristic metallics have found their place on mock neck sweaters, gilded trousers, coats, boots, and even gowns featured on Red Carpets. I guess it's a way to say Runway meet Street Style, Street Style meet Runway. I think you two will get along.

To dress up your wardrobe with a little flash, check out some cheap chic metallic looks, like the ones above, here: Forever 21.

Red is in. A pop of color full of power seen throughout Runway shows is destined to find its way into closets all around the world. Red usually is seen as a winter meets spring color with Christmas butting the end of the year and dull pastels taking over come March, but Vogue has made it clear for the statement color this year with their theme "Red And Ready." It seems as though fall will be the one to break out the deep hue this year. You'll get 'em next year, winter.

To get your hands on this newest look and to find which tone you like best, check out Urban Outfitter's latest lookbook.


Corduroy rose up from the dead. Forget being embarrassed about breaking out your corduroy slacks from years ago because it's finally a look once again. Find this vintage-inspired fabric on pants, skirts, dresses, overalls, jackets and more. Take a seat '80s, the '70s are recurring.

To shop the look for a reasonable price, check out Forever 21's corduroy line.

Chunky knits are back, as always. It's no surprise this cozy look made its way onto the Runway again this year. It's a common occurrence but this season they're back in all shapes and sizes. You'll mostly find this bulky material on sweaters or cardigans, but it's not too hard to catch it on mittens and beanie caps, too. It's sweater weather at its finest.


To indulge yourself into this warm cozy look, check out Nordstrom's latest line.

Fringe to make you whirl and twirl. Though it's seen on many different styles throughout the years and is a look that dominates festival season, fringe is taking a new turn this fall. Whether it's feathery, suede, cotton, denim, or satin fringe, you're bound to see this fad rock the streets. After all, it seems as though designers have got Woodstock on their minds.


Jump on this trend before it's too late. See it here: Forever 21

Now that we've gone over a few of the latest fall trends, which one will you mix into your blend?

20 Small Tattoos With Big Meanings

Tattoos with meaning you can't deny.

It's tough to find perfect tattoos with meaning.

You probably want something permanent on your body to mean something deeply, but how do you choose a tattoo that will still be significant in 5, 10, 15, or 50 years? Over time, tattoos have lost much of their stigma and many people consider them a form of art, but it's still possible to get a tattoo you regret.

So here are 20 tattoos you can't go wrong with. Each tattoo has its own unique meaning, but don't blame me if you still have to deal with questions that everyone with a tattoo is tired of hearing!

SEE RELATED: "Please Stop Asking What My Tattoos Mean"

1. A semi-colon indicates a pause in a sentence but does not end. Sometimes it seems like you may have stopped, but you choose to continue on.


2. "A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor."


3. Top symbol: unclosed delta symbol which represents open to change. Bottom symbol: strategy.


4. "There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls."


5. Viking symbol meaning "create your own reality."


6.Greek symbol of Inguz: where there's a will, there's a way.

7. Psalm 18:33 "He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights."


8. 'Ohm' tattoo that represents 4 different states of consciousness and a world of illusion: waking (jagrat), dreaming (swapna), deep sleep (sushupti), transcendental state (turiya) and world of illusion (maya)


9. Alchemy: symbolizes copper, means love, balance, feminine beauty and artistic creativity.


10. The Greek word “Meraki" means to do something with soul, passion, love and creativity or to put yourself in to whatever you do.


11. Malin (Skövde, Sweden) – you have to face setbacks to be able to go forward.

12. Symbol meaning "thief" from the Hobbit. It was the rune Gandalf etched into Bilbo's door so the dwarves could find his house.


13. “Lux in tenebris" means “light in darkness."

14. Anchor Tattoo: symbolizing strength & stability, something (or someone) who holds you in place, and provides you the strength to hold on no matter how rough things get.

15."Ad Maiora" is translated literally as “Towards greater things." It is a formula of greeting used to wish more success in life, career or love.


16. A glyphs means “explore." It was meant as a reminder for me to never stop exploring.

17. "Aut inveniam viam aut faciam," meaning roughly, "Either I shall find a way, or I will make one."


18. Lotus Flower. It grows in muddy water, and it is this environment that gives forth the flower's first and most literal meaning: rising and blooming above the murk to achieve enlightenment.

19. The zen (or ensō) circle to me represents enlightenment, the universe & the strength we all have inside of us.

20. Two meanings. The moon affirms life. It looks as if it is constantly changing. Can reminds us of the inconsistency of life. It is also symbolizes the continuous circular nature of time and even karma.

'Better Call Saul' Is Helping Fill The Void That 'Breaking Bad' Left Us With

Vince Gilligan does it again.

116

'Breaking Bad' is my favorite show of all time. I'm in love with nearly everything about it. The authenticity that the actors bring to their characters, the pacing of the show, the superb writing and the dark themes that are all too real in the world we live in and all drew me in to the show and kept me hooked. After finishing the show several years ago, I was left with a void.

I've since found good shows, but not too many shows even are worth mentioning in the same breath, save for 'Mad Men,' 'Parks and Rec' and maaaaybe 'Dexter.' While those three shows all have their own special place in my heart, I was looking for something closer to what 'Breaking Bad' provided me with. Then I made a fantastic discovery: Vince Gilligan, the creator of BB, made a spin-off origin story featuring Bob Odenkirk's fan favorite character, Saul Goodman. I found my new binge-worthy show.

The story follows Odenkirk's character, Jimmy McGill (later to be known as Saul), a former con-man who is morally flexible and is now a fast-talking two-bit lawyer whose office is a tiny closet in the back of a nail salon. His older brother, Chuck (Michael McKean) is one of the most well respected lawyers in the country, a brilliant senior partner at a top law firm in Albuquerque.

Unfortunately for Chuck, he believes he has recently contracted a condition that makes him extremely sensitive to electromagnetic hypersensitivity, meaning he can't be in the presence of cell phones, light bulbs, computers, etc. This means an extended hiatus from work. The tumultuous relationship between the brothers is the driving force of the show and Odenkirk and McKean have tremendous chemistry.

'Better Call Saul' also brings in many familiar faces from 'BB.' Mike Ehrmantraut, Gus Fring, Tuco and Hector Salamanca, just to name a few. Also in effect are the great cinematography, music and visuals in general that helped set 'BB' apart as an artistic masterpiece. Combine that with the wonderful storytelling and compelling characters, 'Better Call Saul' comes very close stylistically.

Although 'Better Call Saul' falls slightly short of the long shadow that 'BB' casts, it has enough of the same elements to more than make up for that.
