Go From Drab To Fab With This Season's Must-Haves
As chillier temps approach, it's time to update your wardrobe with this season's most fabulous attire. Being fashionable doesn't have to be painstaking or have to cost a fortune. With a few essential "must-haves" in your closet, you can easily pull off the hottest runway looks in just minutes. Here are a few trends to watch out for this season:
Collegiate sportswear was all the rage on New York Fashion Week runways. To look like you've just stepped off a college campus, add a colorful rugby or striped cardigan to complement a pair of pleated wool pants with a natural waistline. Save money by digging into your old coed gear at the back of your closet or in the attic--they're begging to be revamped and worn! Pull out your favorite long, chunky scarf that you loved to sport during freshman year and match it with a pair of skinny denims, add an oversized knit cocoon coat and embrace the warmth and style of the season.
Back to Basics
Covering up your legs this season is a must. Hosiery is a great way to spice up any outfit. Select from a wide range of patterns and textures to accent your look and choose a neutral color palette such as heather gray, oatmeal or brown. These colors are perfect to mix and match with other pieces in your closet. Eye-catching leggings or hosiery can be worn under a knee-length pencil skirt or a tailored pair of Bermuda shorts. Don't forget to finish the look with an important "must-have" accessory--a wide, woven belt, cinched at the waist--to give you the chic, trendy look seen in all the fashion magazines.
By simply incorporating just one or two of these designs into your wardrobe, you can look like a fashionista overnight.
Have a great week!
