September is a transitional month signifying fresh starts and new beginnings. It is also one of the most anticipated times for fashion with a first look at style trends and predictions for the upcoming year.

Belgian fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg said, “Style is something each of us already has, all we need to do is find it.” In this issue of Tulsa Lifestyle, we feature an array of fashion and style choices for you to consider as we head into the fall and winter months.

For our annual fashion photo shoot, we went to ​Saks Fifth Avenue in Utica Square to feature the season’s hottest looks straight from the runways. We also talked with fashion blogger Miss Southern to find out how to combine city chic with a little country. And, we visited BMW of Tulsa to learn about one of the hottest new convertibles on the market which is sure to get you to where you’re going in style. You may want to leave the magazine open to this page so that your significant other gets an early hint for holiday gifts.

As you flip through the pages, you’ll also see stories about home style including the latest types of tile and stone, and how to ready your landscape and trees for the winter months.

Whether you consider yourself a connoisseur of fashion or a casual admirer, style is a way of showing who you are without having to say a thing. We hope you enjoy the stories in this issue and wish you the best in this warm and sunny transitional month of September.
