I reviewed the photos I took at the fall buying trip for Hutton and tried to remember which items I loved for fall. My number one fashion trend this fall is the vest. The options are endless. Fun colors of faux fur, with fluffy details are sure to make any girl smile.
On a recent trip to Washington DC, I visited Cusp in Georgetown. To my surprise, I found black to be a very dominant theme. Short black dresses paired with turtlenecks and hosiery with designs. There were black tops with neon piping and navy pants with fuller legs. This may be one of those seasons where everything begins to turn. Meaning it may be our last season with all skinny pants. Big bulky layering sweaters may begin to replace the fuller cashmere boxy sweater.
For me nothing can replace fine gage cashmere, or the boyfriend cashmere sweater. That classic look never seems to never get old.
Earrings are bold, brave and very big. That is something everyone can do. Don’t be afraid to slip out of your old stand by diamond studs and slip into a brilliant pair of colorful intricate earrings. It might change your life…
Fringe, it’s still here, on bags more than anything, but skirts have tamed it some with the carwash pleat. A repeat form the early 2000’s.
So how can you stay fresh and in style this fall? Pick one fashion piece, and plan three ways to wear it. Maybe it’s a long neutral sweater. Wear over an off-white outfit. Then pair with jeans and layer on scarves and a white tee shirt. It will make a plain brown dress look new or town down a dark print.
One great piece can bring your fall wardrobe to life.
