Fall is finally here and pumpkin spice is in the air! We were anxious to bust out our new line of ponchos, sweaters, hats and scarves to walk the streets all bundled up in comfy warmth.
While some know exactly what to wear, others are wondering what the trends are for this year, and if they should even attempt to follow them. We think trends are not rules set in stone, but more like guidelines that you can decide to follow. Just remember: “Fashion” just like art is a means to express yourself; don’t be afraid to add some of your own personality to your look!
Here are four major trends for this Fall 2014:
- Ponchos– We saw them early this year at London Fashion Week and haven’t stopped seeing them yet! This great outerwear piece compliments all body shapes and can be worn with a variety of outfits.
- Hosiery, Leggings & Tights– with patterns, texture and variety of colors they add an extra wow factor to outfits this Fall.
- Leather or Pleather– the sleek look of this material has come back this year. The natural black and brown tones are always welcome, but don’t be afraid to navigate towards colors like oxblood, forest green or yellow for the more audacious crowds.
- Metallic– bling will always be a girl’s best friend, but this season metallic accents are completing looks left and right. Silver, platinum, gold and copper are not just for jewelry; consider using these tones for nails and even makeup!
Incorporating all of these things to an outfit might seem daunting, but it can be done. Just remember to always add your own personality!
