It’s time to put those summer clothes away and get ready for a fashionable fall. If you’re a little behind on the trends, don’t worry – we’ll help you get ahead of the curve. Here’s what you need to know.
Bring Back the 90s
Nineties fashion styles are coming back in a big way – and this time not just with accessories or statement pieces. We’re talking head-to-toe. Ladies, throw on a slip dress and top it with a faux leather moto jacket from Macy’s at the Galleria. Guys, try pairing slightly oversized jeans with an unbuttoned flannel shirt over a white undershirt for a casual weekend outing.
Revive the Sweater Vest
This adorably preppy garment is getting a 2021 revival. It’s the perfect layering piece for those transitional autumn days and can be worn with both casual outfits, as well as a look that’s more put together. Give it a twist by choosing a bold color or by wearing it without a layer underneath and a blazer or jacket on top.
Mix Bold Colors
This season’s fashion trends are reminiscent of the color block ensembles that once peppered the runways. But this time, it’s all about head-to-toe mix-and-matches of deeply saturated color palettes. Don’t be shy about how you mix them. Try a lemon yellow shirt with mustard pants. Or a midnight blue suit with an amethyst shirt. Be as bold as the colors you choose when you put your outfits together.
Keep It Tailored
Structure is the name of the game this fall. And just as designers are taking bold color mixing all the way, so too are they showcasing tailored garments in a big way. Don’t just focus on a blazer – layer it with pleated skirts and a well-tailored blouse. Don’t just throw a sweater on with your khakis – try a collared shirt, tailored vest, and structured jacket. Instead of looking to showcase one tailored piece, add as many as you can to the outfit.
Stay Cozy in Knitwear
Sweaters, sweaters, sweaters: stock up on them this autumn, because they are at the top of the trend lists. Go for something with texture or cables, like this fun sweater at Irving’s Target. Or a simple pullover that can be worn both on a casual night out and at an office event.
