So here we are approaching the fall season and all the hottest new fashion trends. While I tend to follow some trends, not all are appealing. As I can try to keep up with the joneses, I’m perfectly fine in a baseball hat, t shirt and jeans. Baseball hats are coming in strong this season and that is ok but, I also heard beanies and turbans will also be gracing the heads of many–oh my! Neutral shades have now expanded to the gray family and include anything from shades of slate to charcoal. This is perfect for that great new skirt you get to wear to work. Skirt hems have been lowered to mid-calf as well as a cut slit up the right side- another plus to wear to the workplace. Sounds like we are heading into the 30’s -hope not too much- you couldn’t pay me to wear ruffles–ugh. In the early 1990’s I do remember a lot of women wearing blouses with ruffles…that is one trend that has re-appeared more than once that I hope just stays away! Color is coming back into season full-force from colored furs to dark colored skinny jeans- think evergreen. High shine fabrics will also be a big hit for fall. I’m thinking a pink skirt with a white t shirt. Speaking of pink, this is a color that has been getting a lot of airtime. A great fabric coat in blush will go a long way and blend beautifully with the rest of your wardrobe. Now, for anyone who just doesn’t have the time to run around looking for all of these wonderful trendy items, I have some really great friends that work as personal shoppers, whom I can recommend….me included—that’s a joke but it does comes natural to some!
