While shopping for clothes during the summer is loads of fun, true fashionistas find enjoyment in catering to all the seasons when it comes to the appropriate wardrobe. If you’ve been dying for fall and winter to come around so you can update your closet, you don’t have to wait any longer – the fall and winter fashion trends are ready and waiting for you.
The main fashion mistake to avoid is wearing clothing items that aren’t practical – after all it is the fall and winter season we’re talking about here, so while you want to be fashionable, you also want to dress warmly. While shopping for new clothing items, flock to fun fabrics that go hand-in-hand with cooler temperatures such as velvet, suede, corduroy, fleece, denim and cotton stretch fabrics. It is also important to make sure the fashion trends you’re following are suitable for the workplace. For the fall and winter season, indulge in snazzy tailored clothing paired with a print coat for when it gets chilly. Don’t be afraid to break out the cropped trousers to add a touch of casual to you workplace outfit but make sure you wear the right shoes. Fall is perfect for sporting cropped trousers with sandals or flats.
When it comes to colors, the latest fashion trends call for a mixture of bold and neutral shades to create unique clothing combinations. While in the past, fashion trends stated that wearing traditional, monochromatic clothing items paired with colorful accessories was what was “in,” this season it’s the opposite. Why not choose a dress or brightly color top in lime green, purple or burgundy and pair it with neutral colored accessories? By keeping your accessories understated, more attention will be drawn to your outfit. Of course make sure you choose your colorful clothing item wisely – you don’t want to end up looking like a throwback to the ‘80s.
Animal prints are also back in season. Faux animal prints in particular are especially popular but for those that prefer a more toned down look, adding some safari to your outfit by pairing it with an animal print handbag, belt or even a pair of leopard print shoes can bring out your inner Amazon. Speaking of prints, female fashionistas will also find delight in urban chic apparel, consisting of jersey and silk materials as well as large graphics and patterns. These fabrics are soft and feel good against the skin, making for the ultimate statement in femininity, while the large graphics and patterns give off the urban vibe.
Of course this fall and winter fashion trends aren’t just limited to tops and bottoms alone. Shoe fans will want to add thick soles to their closets. Thick soles on heels, boots and flats are truly in style this season. For those that love accessories, this fall and winter you’ll want to start incorporating gemstones, large handbags, satchels and slouchy hobo bags, scarves, necklaces, charm bracelets and large watches to your fashion arsenal.
