1. Anything in grey
Grey emerges as the neutral for fall, worn as a backdrop for other colors or monochromatically. Think of grey as a strong alternative to black, with its many hues: charcoal, slate, and dove. There is sure to be a hue that flatters you!
2. 60s inspired dresses and skirts
Sheaths and short A-line skirts take one back to Carnaby Street, Twiggy, and the swinging Sixties, especially when paired with knee high or over the knee boots.
3. Textured knits
Cozy knits, essential building blocks for a fall wardrobe, come in interesting patterns and textures, often oversize, sometimes worn from head to toe, but also perfect when paired with midi skirts, maybe even in grey!
4. Global prints
Global prints abound and are bold, graphic, ethnic, embellished, and ornamented, making for dramatic sartorial multiculturalism.
5. Pointed toe Flats
The round ballet toe has ceded ground to the pointed toe. With a myriad of stylish options, flats can take one from a day on the town to a night on the town.
Yes, culottes from the 60s and 70s are making a comeback! Some are full and look like a skirt; some are elegant enough for evening wear. Wear with a heel or boot to elongate the leg.
7. Flared legged jeans
Flared legged jeans hug the legs, with a slight flare at the ankles, making the leg appear long and lean. With the higher waist, they pair well with cropped sweaters and tops. A fashionable alternative to give those skinny jeans a rest.
8. Blanket coat
While comfortable and enveloping, the blanket coat need not look like equine apparel but can be a statement piece with great elan, in bold patterns, bright solids, and cool pastels.
9. Bohemian chic
Rich and evocative, the bohemian patterns this fall appear to be inspired by fairy tales and journeys to the Silk Road and exotic lands.
10. Midi skirts
The midi skirt, from the flared to the slim to the asymmetric, proves its enduring appeal, looking equally stylish with flats, boots, and heels.
