Autumn is right around the corner and it’s time to start breaking out sweaters, scarves and boots and stocking up on the newest fall fashion trends. From bonfire bliss to apple crisp, fall wraps you in an immersive, sensual experience and your wardrobe should reflect that flavor. Fall is all about being cozy and comfortable, but you also want to feel confident. The good news is you don’t have to compromise comfort with these fabulous fall fashion tips.
Get the Skinny
Jeans are the building block for an entire look. Jeans are comfortable, flattering and flexible- the chameleons of the closet. Classic skinny jeans lend themselves to a wide variety of fresh fall styles. The clean lines mean they are easy to accessorize, plus they pair well with bulky sweaters, oversized tees and tunics. Finish your look with a pair of boots; short boots create a sexy flair, while tall boots flatter all shapes.
Take on Texture
Fall fashion is all about texture and interest, and there is something for everyone. Sweaters are a fundamental part of any fall wardrobe and come in a wide variety of styles, colors and patterns. If sweaters aren’t your thing, try tops embellished with fringe, fur, velvet, suede and sequins. Popular prints that you’ll be seeing this fall include plaid and animal prints.
Create a Capsule
Embrace the beautiful autumn color palette consisting of black, brown, camel, burgundy, olive, mustard, gray and pumpkin. These colors mix and match well. Build your fall fashion around a handful of key pieces that are interchangeable for a variety of looks. Capsule basics accessorize easily with pops of color. The monochromatic looks featured at the Fall 2017 New York Fashion Week showcased dynamic scarves, purses and shoes.
It’s All In the Details
Your personality is reflected in what you wear and details are everything. The straightforward nature of fall fashion makes it the perfect backdrop for accessorizing. Hats, scarves, jackets, boots and bags are taking over the fall runway. Denim jackets, purses and jeans embellished with patches and pins are popular this fall and are an easy way to update your current wardrobe. Deconstructed fashion is trending, it includes revealed linings, raw edges, fraying, unusually sewn seams and exposed zippers. Some people feel this is against the laws of fashion but many designers today would disagree and appreciate the relaxed look.
Layer It Up
One of the biggest wardrobe challenges is managing the unpredictable weather. You might wake up to a chill in the air but find yourself needing air conditioning by noon. Sweaters, scarves and jackets keep you cozy and can come off quickly when the weather calls for jeans and a t-shirt. A classic white tee is cute, comfy and can easily be dressed up or down. Pair a solid tee with statement jewelry that catches the eye. Motorcycle jackets are also a wardrobe staple and can be worn with a dress, jeans or button-down top.
