Fall Fashions

     Summer is once again coming to an end and back to school ads are everywhere.  Summer clothes are on their way out, and the stores are stocking up on knits and boots.  Looking for a heads up on fall trends?  Read ahead to discover this season's styles and get some pointers as to how you can blend some of your summer pieces into your autumn wardrobe.

That 70s Style

    This season we saw hints of the 1970s reincarnated in today's clothing through fringe and flares, and fall will be no different.  Boho silhouettes and loose knits will have you feeling comfy while looking stylish.  These boots are at the top of my must have list this season and they are available in this trend's hottest color, brown.


     Typically neon colors are associated with summer months.  However, clothing this fall incorporates bright neons with neutral colors for just a pop of brightness.  Layer a neon tank underneath a gray blazer for a professional pop or carry a neon handbag to spice up your outfit.  My personal favorite neutrals to pair neons with this season are gray and tan.

Try a new trend.

     If you're looking to explore new fashion options, dabble in  the car wash skirt.  The car wash skirt is the more edgy sister of a fringe skirt.  It can give off a sleek, stylish look in solid black or look super fun in a colorful pattern.  Its texture makes it flattering on any body type.  To get a better understanding of this trend and how to style it, check out this article.  Coats with built in stoles are super trendy this fall and will keep you warm.  The fur around the neck offers the wearer a wealthy, cozy look.  The built in stole has the potential to take your fall coat into the colder winter months as well, allowing you to get more use out of it.

Hosiery is back

     Hopefully you didn't get rid of your patterned stockings from 2010.  They are back and aren't just limited to your basic black pattern.  You'll be seeing a range of colors and designs this season.  This accessory alone can transform an outfit and make it so much more interesting.  Check out this gallery from Fall Fashion Week to see how they've updated this trend.
