GO FOR BRIGHTS!
Color is the key word for Fall, Pops of color, or overall brights in solids and patterns, are must-haves. This photo is of one aisle of the Accessories Show at the Javits Center. The amount of color, everywhere, was staggering. Displays like this one in the photo were repeated aisle after aisle after aisle! Go for bold red, orange, yellow, lime green, pink, and neon brights, to add a pop of color. Other Colors to Consider: rust, rose, purple, plum, navy blue, honey yellow/goldenrod, beige, soft olive, taupe, charcoal grey
Beautiful examples of how to wear color this Fall are from PORTS 1961. I love this gorgeous, hot pink and apricot silk blouse from PORTS 1861. A stunning, must-photographed-on-the-runway, India-inspired red dress with black buttons worn over black pants tapered at the ankle, is also part of the PORTS 1961 Fall Collection.

COLOR FOR COATS! Store that dull, tan, grey, brown, or black coat, and brighten up your life every day with bright colors in outerwear. the must-have for Fall cool weather wear. This yellow coat, from Alice & Olivia, and this very fashionable, hot pink car coat, were from TJ Maxx/Marshalls., as was
BOHO/ETHNIC! Boho and ethnic themes are also hot for Fall. I love this colorful, Boho-style dress (from TJ Maxx/ Marshalls) . The photo of this rack of boho-inspired clothes was taken at the Accessories show at the Javits Center. There were racks and racks and more racks of generation-spanding. colorful, Boho clothing. They just make you feel good! Trend Tip: wear “ethnic” as you would an accent. One piece is cute. More than one and you look like a throwback!
CHECKS! Personally, I have never liked buffalo checks, but if you want to be in fashion this fall, the “lumberjack” look is back, big time. This pink dress for a younger woman, takes the look and makes it more “babe” than “Bay City Rollers.”
Sweaters and shawls, and logo T-shirts (especially for younger guys) are must-haves. Add a belt over a shawl or sweater to update your existing ones. Logo T-shirts let you express yourself. These are all from TJMaxx and Marshalls Trend Tip: logo shirts are strictly for weekend or casual wear. Hopefully, you already know this!
PLAYFUL, COLORFUL, LINGERIE: No matter what your age, wearing colorful lingerie and sleepwear can make you feel sexy. Why not add some colorful panties (these, from Hanky Pankie, or some young-at-heart sleep, lounge and lingerie wear from Victorias Secret Pink. All are affordable, and they just make life a little more fun.
Other Trends To Watch: boyfriend jackets, boho-tops as mini dresses (over skinny jeans or leggings), skinny pants, super-high heels (if you can’t wear them, cute flats are a must-have).
