Ahh, fall. Leaves turn; a little chill is in the air, and fashion is at its best. Style mavens wait all summer to discover the latest trends and put them into action. From thigh-high boots to the return of flared jeans, it’s easy to join fall’s fashion frenzy. Now that fall is here, keep on reading to see how to wear the season’s top trends.
Grab a pumpkin latte and curl up in your chunkiest knits. Thick and textured, these oversize sweaters made a statement on the runways of New York Fashion Week. Find their perfect mate in a pair of skinny jeans or leggings to balance the bulkiness up top. This style can go both casual and dressy – to land right in between, slip on Madden Girl’s Master Boot in stone. The knee-length, faux-leather riding boot is perfect for elongating your silhouette.
It’s back to peace and love – the skinny scarves and boho blouses of the ’70s are all the rage this fall. The biggest trend is the option to jump from skinnies to flare-leg jeans. Rock a pair with some great heels – think Fergalicious by Fergie’s Cleo 2 booties – for a leggy look. The open toe and chunky 3-inch heel height lets you stylishly reboot the ’70s.
Turtlenecks and Blazers
Traditional, mock or bunchy, turtlenecks are hot – not to mention warm – for fall. Top yours with another trending item, the long-line blazer. Hitting at hip length, this slimming jacket teams beautifully with a turtleneck and pair of relaxed chinos. Break them out in autumnal colors, such as copper, cream, brown and olive. Finish the look with Sperry’s Laguna Boat Shoe in brown tortoise, and add gold earrings to frame your face.
