Fall is on the horizon and it is time to scope out some cozy styles that will keep you warm while looking cool. Autumn shades and snuggly sweaters are an essential part of your seasonal wardrobe every year, but here are some additions to the 50+ Style Report that just may surprise you. Have fun adding them to your fall fashion lineup.
Sweater dresses have been around in various styles for the last couple of years, but this year they are being paired with jeans and loose, flowing slacks rather than restrictive leggings. If skin tight bottoms weren’t leaving you feel like you had proper coverage, feel free to pair your sweaters with more flattering and more comfortable bottoms this fall.
You’ve probably already noticed that you see plenty of items in department stores that are reminiscent of the 1960s and 1970s. If you’ve been dying to try some of these prints and free flowing fabrics that bring back some great memories, now is the time. Layered prints and cozy comfort are a style we can all love.
A piece of the 1980s is sneaking into this fall’s styles as well, with denim showing up in more than just jeans. Shirts, jackets, and even denim print shoes are making a comeback – just not in acid wash colors. We will leave those to the 1980s, but feel free to pick up whatever piece you like in a nice dark indigo wash.
Nothing says warm and cozy, while at the same time looking fabulously fashionable, like shearling. Lining the inside of vests and jackets, shearling is the epitome of fall. It will keep you toasty warm at all of your favorite fall events and looks super cute paired with almost any other fabric.
Dresses and sweaters are showing up with surprising asymmetrical designs that draw the eye and flatter the figure. These eye-catching styles are sure to be a hit in flattering earth tones, making you look all dressed up even in casual comfort.
Just when you thought this year’s fall styles couldn’t be more accommodating to comfort while keeping you looking great, ponchos arrived on the scene. Choose solid neutral colors or crazy patterns in autumnal shades. Regardless of what you choose, you will look fall fabulous and feel like you are wrapped up in your favorite blanket. This style has all the ingredients to be a popular fall favorite.
How does a pattern look warm and cozy? I’m not sure, but if any pattern pulls it off it is plaid. Select your plaid dress or shirt in a soft flannel or a wool wrap jacket and feel as comfy as if you were out and about in your pajamas. Choose a subtle print of dark colors or pair a plaid piece with some solid layers to ease yourself into this fun style.
A Punch of Color
Earth tones are always a win for fall, but this year dress up some of your outfits with a touch of bright orange, purple, or summery blue. These vibrant shades can add a captivating touch to your standard fall fare.
