What’s in Fashion this Fall?
Here’s the scoop – but we are keeping it Real, not Runway! Afterall, we live in Massachusetts where the trends need to be functional and warm too!
LADIES – In a word: “80’s”. Let’s flash back!
Perfect in Plaid – mix the plaid materials and colors (such as a wool scarf and a nylon tote bag); try herringbone for a more classic look.
Oversized, baggy, slouchy boyfriend-style coats. Blanket coats, Sherpa lined coats…even wearing a thick coat over a thin one is in.
Florals – not like your grandma’s couch – be classy but fun.
Leather – you’ll find it everywhere and on all clothing styles – jackets, skirts…even jeggings. Black, brown, color – fill your closet! Vintage leather outerwear (traditional leather or suede) is classy and warm.
Pumps reinvented – look for straps rather than just classic for a fun new twist!
Animal print is everywhere
Jumpsuits – retro colors and stripes
Athleisure – comfy casual that takes you from the gym to a day of shopping
• Jogger ankles
• Track suits
Mom jeans (aka high waisted) with crop tops or sweaters
Sparkle if you dare!
Oversized handbags – load up your laptop and your goodies in one bag
Colors – Brown is the new black! Don’t feel intimidated to wear power red head to toe, fuchsia (a different color than what’s usually in for Fall),
Stila Vivid and Vibrant eye shadows
Bare Minerals Liquid Concealer in different shades and color in their shadows
Smashbox Ablaze collection lip stick
What’s on trend for MEN?
Dressy Casual – you can look great and be comfortable in today’s office attire! Try a nice cashmere sweater with a loose jacket over it; add a pair of nice dark denim or some khaki’s, nice shoes and a leather belt and you’re set for the work day – no suit and tie required!
YOUR HOME can be on trend too!
The Year of Glamour – Mix luxe textures and metallic accents with simple materials
Harvest farmhouse – vintage inspired woods, metal accents and comfy!
Eclectic Mix – blend contrasting chairs with a unique coffee table for instance.
Modern Farmhouse – mix country white, contemporary black and earthy wood
Art Glass pumpkins
Dogs – you’ll find them on pillows, blankets and more!
Matchy Matchy is boring boring! Mix it up!
TEENS, TWEENS & COLLEGE KIDS
Athleisure is your best friend!
Cropped sweaters with fun printed leggings!
Fashion Sneakers – so many great colors and styles to choose from – save the bulky sneakers for the gym! Adidas are a must-have if you’re on trend.
Dress it up a bit – and still be comfy –
Flowy tie pants
Corduroy zip/button down dresses/overall dresses
Spaghetti strap jumpsuits
Dresses with a solid white crop top underneath
Frayed jeans with slip on/ tie Vans/Converse
Sherpa pull-overs keep you warm and fashionable
Solid and printed bodysuits – now there’s a flashback for you! They probably didn’t have as many “coffeehouses” when these first came out in the 80’s, so beware of the time it will take you to get these bodysuits off!
Bell sleeve tops – somewhat last year’s trend but you’ll still see them
