Grab a glass of Chardonnay and kick up the fire! Fall is in the air; the leaves are about to change and it’s time to prepare our closets for the autumn chill.
This season is the perfect time to step out of our fashion ruts and into some new pieces to enhance our current wardrobes. The style of the season is all about bold clothing, elegant lines and a dose of comfort. These fabulous fashion finds will have you ready to step out into the cold to show off your incredible new looks.
Here is the best of fashion for the fall season:
Anything goes this season when it comes to patterns and textures. Runways are filled with seeming mismatches, like leather and sequins, as well as silk and fur. Though the runways often set the newest trends, they may not be the best place to choose an outfit. You can easily step into this fall trend by missing textures that complement one another. This crocheted sweater from Delias is paired with a soft cotton shirt which represents two different textures that work well together.
Show em’ you mean business
Prints are everywhere as seen in Gucci’s polka dot creations and Versace’s bold flowers and this season is “falling” for stylish print dresses. If you are not accustomed to wearing prints, the fall is the perfect time to try this trend! If you are a little apprehensive, try this more muted print as seen in the Amazonas Pima Short Dress by Peruvian Connection. This tunic dress won’t overpower but it will get the job done and fit right in with the best of fall fashion.
Chunky Knit Sweaters
A large dose of comfort
For all of you “curl up in front of a cozy fire” types, you will adore the comfort and coziness of the chunky knit sweater. Dress it up with a belt or necklace or wear it casually with a pair of jeans or leggings. Monterey Bay Clothing Company has a wide selection of chunky knit sweaters in many styles such as cardigans and tunics and in a variety of colors and lengths. Shoppers usually find great deals or free shipping at “The Bay” so keep an eye out when you are sweater shopping.
Fabulous Faux Fur
They’ll never know…unless you want them too
Faux fur is becoming increasingly popular as more and more designers are interested in animal preservation. Due to the high demand, faux fur has turned into a hot fashion staple for this fall season. It may not be cold enough for that long faux fur coat just yet, so why not try this Sable V-Front Vest from Fabulous Furs? It is warm and cozy and makes a great fashion statement. It is available in black mink and leopard.
It’s all in the fabric
In a Fall’s luscious new shade of plum, a pointe knit above-the-knee dress from Coldwater Creek has the classic proportions and versatility that makes this very “now.” Dress it up, dress it down, dress it every where you go. Look for a new dress this fall that will take you from the office to dinner without missing a beat.
Don’t be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone this fall. Try some of these fall fashions and show the world you care enough to strut your stuff in style!
