The Colors, Fabrics & Textures of Fall

Fashion this fall is all about cozy chic. The trend is toward real clothes that are easy to wear, comfortable and totally in style. Look for effortless fashion that boasts plenty of flair with exciting trends in prints, details and textures. 

For our photo shoot with the team from SW Lake Lifestyle we absolutely took inspiration from the beautiful grounds of Vehe Barn in Deer Park. It’s really a pretty special place. We loved the idea of being in a setting of such relevant local history. The rustic beauty of the historic barns, natural flowers and stonework all complement the cozy chic fall trends perfectly.

 We’re excited that fashion now offers something for everyone. Look for fun prints this fall in floral, camo or plaid. Chic textures like lace and cable knit will add a new dimension to a fall look. Details like fringe, embroidery, ruffles, flare sleeves and shoulder-baring tops will add an edge to an outfit. The goal is to find what speaks to you.

 When the weather starts to get cooler color trends typically shift from the pastel and bright shades of summer to richer, warmer hues that reflect the autumn season. Wool, cashmere and heavier cottons become key fabrics as we start to layer for fall. Textures like chunky knits, cabled sweaters, and fringe and suede details all add to the feel of fall.

 We are always asked about the essential items to build a fall wardrobe around. This year it starts with a great-fitting pair of jeans. The jeans can transition from a casual daytime look to a night out. Other fall wardrobe fundamentals are a cozy sweater, a moto jacket, a tee for layering, a neutral ankle boot, a printed blouse and a statement necklace or earring. Always look for items that fit your body and style and with the right key pieces and a few fun accessories, you can mix and match for almost any occasion.
