Fall Preview for the Casual Girl
Fall is my most favorite season for style. It's filled with beautiful colors, lots of layers, and cozy fabrics. This fall we have a lot of continuing styles such as the skinny jean, and the boyfriend look. However, fall has twisted everything up and now what was short is long, what was tight is full, and what was nude and natural is filled with color!
In the past, all colors associated with fall fashion were tones of red, orange and brown, inspired solely by the beautiful colors that fall leaves turn into at the changing of the season. This year, Fall's fabulous color palette are "Jewel Tones". Garnette, Emerald, Ruby, Amethyst, and Sapphire. It's a beautiful and rich color palette - incredibly regal, and I am so excited to start wearing it!
The most important fall pieces are your jackets, coats, blazers, and sweaters. We all know that as the weather begins to change, our wardrobe becomes increasingly larger, and much, much warmer. This fall season we are still seeing leather biker jackets and bomber jackets. Boyfriend Blazers are also a thumbs up for the season as the "boyfriend" trend is still in full swing. Coats are looking very tailored and with very little going on with detail. Sweaters are over sized and heavy. They are very full, chunky knits, not like the cashmere cardigans that we have been seeing in the past. This season, Fall is preparing you for a very warm winter and it's not because the temperature will be higher!
Skirts and dresses have made a complete 180. Last Fall and Spring they were short, tight and high-waisted, this fall a 1950's inspired women will be all the rage. High-waisted full skirts to the knee bring back a more conservative look from the past. It's an incredibly classy and glamorous look - very feminine and flirty.
The fifties are also the inspiration for all the sportswear designed for women this Fall. A baggy, tapered dress pant with rolled cuffs and a sexy heel or boot is one of my favorite looks for the Fall; embracing the idea of the boyfriend style and applying it to work-wear.
The Past is rearing is GORGEOUS head this Fall and I can't wait to go shopping!
