5 trends for fall 2016

While I don’t advocate for wearing trends that don’t resonate with you, it is helpful to know what’s in to keep your wardrobe feeling contemporary and fresh. Simply adding a color of the season to your outfit or embracing a trend full-on both add intentionality to dressing, which looks great and feels great. Check out 5 trends that are hot this fall.

1. jewel tones and blushes

Rich jewel tones and neutral blushes are the colors of the season. There’s a broad array of exquisite colors – experiment with some you’ve never tried before and be adventurous with pairing them. If one appeals to you, but doesn’t suit your complexion, wear it away from your face.

2. Victorian/Edwardian-style blouses

Think high collars, ruffles, bow-tie necklines, and statement sleeves. Pair these blouses with jeans and loafers or dress them up tucked into a pencil skirt.

Floral print dresses have been making the rounds on runways and red carpets this season. There are plenty of ready-to-wear choices as well – pair them with booties, tall boots, or heels.

4. embroidered/embellished denim

Embroidered denim jeans and jackets are making a huge comeback, as are denim garments embellished with patches. This trend is an easy do-it-yourself way to make an old pair of jeans feel fresh.

5. loafers

Classic loafers, as well as heeled and open-heeled (mules), are a comfortable and polished shoe for casual and dress. Wear them with cropped jeans, dress pants, slim-fit ankle pants, and knee-length skirts or dresses. Timeless style!
