The sun has tamed its rays and the kids are back in school. What does that mean….that fall is here! It’s time to stow away the flip flops and the swimming gear and adorn your closet with these fun new fall fashions. But be warned, Bold is in!
-When you mention velvet, many think of their grandmother’s sofa but new life has been given to the luxurious fabric. Velvet tailored jackets, vests, pants, and even shoes will be lining the racks this fall in deep rich colors like burgundy and midnight blue. Pair it with a lightweight, delicate fabric for a great ensemble.
-Gowns and cocktail attire are the known formal wear for women, but not this season! Menswear-inspired suits and separates’ with tuxedo detailing will be seen not only in the workplace, but in a formal setting as well.
- One strong trend that continues to thrive into fall is the pencil skirt. Not only do they shape the body well, but it also has the versatility to be dressed up for your daytime job, and spiced up for a girl’s night out with just a change of accessories. Pair it with a satin, silk, or embellished top and maybe even a belt to accentuate the waist.
- We can’t ignore the daring trend of color blocking! The key to using this technique appropriately is to join up one neon or bright color, one bold color, and one neutral color. Even using different hues of the same color will do the trick! Here are a few suggestions to get you started!
- Sky blue, Cobalt, and Navy
- Coral, Grey, and Ivory
- Purple, Ivory, and teal
- The 70’s style has come full circle once again! Flare and Wide-leg jeans, faux fur vests, tops, boots, and accessories, and even the use of large geometrical and small floral prints.
