Fall Fashion

Fall Fashion, the clothing season I love most, is nearly here!!  The Fall Runways showed all sorts of fabulous trends – many very classic and wearable.  Those resonating with me most are Cross Body Stoles, Gray Plaid, Navy Overcoats, Off-the-Shoulder, Pin Stripe Suiting, Shearling Bombers, Statement Fur and Velvet!!

Shown here are runway images.  Below each example is a wearable and affordable example of the trend.  Click on the link for more information or to purchase.


I love a fur accessory and wearing a luxurious stole across your body is a fun and versatile way of using it.  Definitely makes a statement and shows you’ve got confidence.

I will never tire of gray plaid and I am happy to see this classic is hot this Fall!  So many ways to wear – casual, for work, and even dressy and a super wardrobe staple and builder.

Perhaps you already have a navy overcoat – please wear it!!  This is another classic worth having in your wardrobe and since it is on trend for Fall, wear it with everything.

This is such a feminine and flattering look.  If you didn’t get a top for Spring and Summer, it’s time to get either a long-sleeved top for Fall or a great dress.

A sharp and classic fabric – just a pair of slacks or a blazer would be a superb addition to your wardrobe and have you on trend but will work for years.
