being mid-September, now is the time to liven up your look for fall. This
season consider ways to enhance your wardrobe that aligns with your authentic personality
and gives you that positive image to approach the fall season in style. Everyone
has a personalized style statement to make, and it can be inspired by history,
nature, or current events. Here are a few modern conceptual themes that let you
add an item or two to give you some fashion flair and polish-up your
Retro Glam: This season you will find 1940s inspired suits from old
Hollywood glamour like peplum or waist-cinched styles with larger shoulder
pads, beautiful colorful gloves, and elegant wraps. Here the style statement is
about exquisite fabrics, tailored curves, and uptown elegance.
Mild to Wild: The safari
look uses large to small bold animal prints like leopard, cheetah, and jungle
prints to add energy to scarves, shoes, booties, handbags, blouses, dresses,
sweaters or a great winter coat. If animal prints feel a bit too bold for you,
shop for the more muted prints or combine one small animal print item with
several colors in it to a basic brown or black trouser. You will find unusual
colors in animal print scarves this year – like black and purple – and they
will look great when paired with a gorgeous black suit.
a Modern Classic: The
return of the timeless classics with a new twist dominates this season’s looks.
We’re talking camel wool coats, menswear trousers, classic suits, and polka-dot
Red a Green Light: Red returns as the power color this year. You will
find it in dresses, suits, coats, shoes, wraps, cardigans, and pretty silk
blouses – plus nail color and lipstick that ranges from bright to muted and to
rich darker shades of red.
in Love with Romance: The pretty ruffles on silk blouses, puffy
sleeves, or a floral print will give your ensemble a more romantic feel. This
trend allows you to emphasize your upper torso with the attention focused more
upward toward your face.
I know from being
in the fashion industry for many years that you will find many of these looks
in department, specialty and discount stores. Try on a few of these style
trends and see which ones make you feel confident and chic.
