This autumn, shoppers can seek out remarkable style and engage with key trends in a distinctly personal way.
Women's Trends: Find the Remarkable You
Greenery is the central hue for fall. Deep shades of kelly and olive reference the natural world, and tones can be mixed and matched effortlessly.
Varied textures and patterns add interest and dimension, like a snake and crocodile I.N.C. International Concepts pump.
Walk on the Wild Side
For a little more boldness, walk on the wild side with animal prints of every variety. From natural leopard on faux fur coats to neon hues of snake on Bar III dresses, pattern is king of the jungle this season. Animal prints make marks on everything from handbags to Calvin Klein intimates, while statement earrings approach the trend with tortoiseshell prints.
Plenty of Plaid
Try a new twist on plaid with bold color mixes and prints of all sizes, like a tweed Julia Jordan dress or a Vince Camuto plaid top and skirt with just the right hint of neon. Make the ultimate style statement with a Lauren Ralph Lauren head-to-toe plaid suit.
Midi lengths are key in skirts and dresses, like those from Tommy Hilfiger, especially when paired with oversized sweaters. Add some drama to a casual look with a voluminous sleeve.
The Western Detail
Western accents adorn shoes, hats and saddle bags with buckles, fringe and whipstitch details.
Chunky sole sneakers, like those from DKNY, keep any look feeling fresh and new arrivals shoes from Sam Edelman offer something for every style.
Men's Fashions: Effortlessly You
Gray Wins the Day
Gray matters this fall. From sleek tailored suiting in windowpane patterns by Tommy Hilfiger to streetwear sets by Ellesse, the head-to-toe monochromatic look is sure to turn heads. For a standout moment, try a silver metallic moto trucker jacket from Michael Kors or an abstract printed trench from Alfani.
The modern utility trend also offers new twists on menswear favorites. A military jacket from Levi’s is an effortlessly cool take on the trend, while a head-to-toe wine-colored camo suit from I.N.C. International Concepts is the ultimate statement.
Bold and bright eyes are the hottest beauty trend this season. Pack on the pigment with Anastasia Beverly Hills x Jackie Aina Palette or clean beauty brand PÜR’s Barbie Endless Possibilities Pressed Pigments Palette. Use the same shade on the lower lash line to amp up the wow factor!
On days where you want to up the ante but don’t have the time, try the season’s hottest lip trend, the flame lip. It’s great to wear on its own and make a chic bold statement. Channel your inner French girl with Dior Rouge Dior Lipstick in 080 Red Smile or Chanel Rouge Allure Liquid Powder in 954 Radical. This modern twist on the classic red lip brings orange hues out to play.
