Fall for fashion
The new season has arrived, reviving the dark, vibrant colors and layers of fall and ushering summer styles to the back of the closet.
Fall’s trends are flexible, chic, and all about creating individual style, according to fashion experts with Glamour, GQ, and the Huffington Post, among others.
Revitalizing old pieces or bringing back the style of your grandfather crafts the style for men this season.
The tailored, yet edgy, look of the 1950s is brought to life again with tweed and motorcycle jackets.
A tailored topcoat and pants embody the cleaner look of fall, and are perfect as workday looks.
Motorcycle jackets also make a statement as an edgy finish to any outfit. Perfect for a date or just a guy’s night out.
This season, instead of purchasing a new wool suit to replace the lighter one of summer, opt for a wool sweater. A new knit can revamp a suit without the weighty cost.
Accessories provide men with a great opportunity to jazz up their wardrobes. Bulky statement scarves and loafers, with or without laces, offer a splash of individuality.
Another trend this season is loud, large patterns. Camouflage and plaid are the top players this fall. If patterned clothing is not for you, accent simple dress wear with patterned accessories.
Look for leather, tweed, and wool pieces this season. Accents of these materials will mirror the classic ’50s style.
Burgundy and shades of grey are present in both men’s and women’s trends this season, adding pops of color.
Emerald green and winter white also will be seen trending this fall. Anything goes for these colors; from green dresses to white peacoats, play with your style.
Add complexity to a wardrobe by mixing velvet or natural materials with the season’s colors.
Plaid, houndstooth, and leopard prints all make a comeback this season. Feature these prints in anything from scarves and purses to sweaters.
Women’s wear will reflect more masculine lines this season. From men’s sweaters to military-inspired jackets, these pieces will add class to any feminine outfit.
Hats and knee-high boots also will invade ladies’ fashion this fall. Go for ’50s-style hats and leather boots; these will transition easily to winter.
The most important style guide for this season is creativity and uniqueness. Mix and match patterns and colors; layer favorite pieces together.
Overall, use the season to express your individuality through loud patterns and statement pieces.
