Fall is almost here and we’ve got the trends you should scoop up in prep for the season. Here are our favorite fall fashion styles you can buy (and wear!) now.
What to Buy Now For Fall Fashion 2014
Curvilinear Dresses. As seen on the catwalk by Christian Dior, the body-skimming style that hints at your figure butt doesn’t cling is perfect for warm weather yet will match your boots and sweaters when the temperature starts to cool down. Try the style with this Tulipan Tank Dress for $69.95 from Anthropologie.
Optical Illusion. Come fall, you’ll notice the dominant pattern is angular geometric prints – either in block patterns, electric waves, or mix-and-match shapes. As you can see, it looks great on jackets, blouses, skirts and scarves – so you can wear as much (or little) of this style as you feel comfortable with (you can’t go wrong)! These geometric-print Trouser Pants for $29.99 from Urban Outfitters look great when paired with a mono-color tank (or sweater).
Ultra-Feminine Frock. Think of this style as the most comfortable way to look absolutely adorable and flirty all the while maintaining a bit of mystique and maturity. Above the knee, it’s loose, flowy, usually patterned and flatters most body types since it buttons, ties, or cinches at the waist. Since it’s made out of lighter fabric, you won’t have to worry about getting too sweaty now or fret whether it will look good when paired with tights (answer: yes!). Try You Autumn Know dress on Modcloth for $59.99.
Knits. You’ll see a lot of knit pieces in fashion this fall 2014, from dress-sized sweaters to sleeveless tunics. Knit is a lovely material since you can find it in different weights (i.e. thicker for fall, lighter for summer). Try this short-sleeve Mix-Cable Sweater top from Gap for $49.95 – it comes in neutral tones (white, grey, beige) which means you can match it with pretty much any bottom (or jacket).
Sneakers. Finally, it’s cool to wear your favorite kicks. Your basic trainers (walking and running shoes) to more fashionable rubber-soles, this fall you’ll be able to give your feet a rest from wedges and heels and wear shoes that are made for walking. Go for pairs that are bright and multi-colored and wear them with shorts, jeans, or skirts. Saucony makes a vibrant and fun pair for $45.
