Hot Fall Fashion
Yes, the heat might be making it difficult to think about warm sweaters and layered looks, but autumn is almost upon us (at least in storefronts)--and the season has much to offer. A snapshot of what's hot for fall:
* Black: Everyone's saying it, yet the statement still has a ring to it: Black is the new black. Black pieces are smart investments. So if you splurge, you can't go wrong with black. * Animal prints: Leopard is especially popular. Those who are fashion-forward can have a lot of fun with this. But the less-adventurous have plenty of options, too. A leopard-print scarf or pair of shoes can be an easy - and affordable - way to achieve the look. * Layers: Not unlike most autumns, layering returns in a big way. You'll see a lot of oversized sweaters that pair well with leggings and jeggings, the jeans-leggings combination pants now populating stores. * Suits: They're back! And they're structured. Suits are an easy way to look put together. Suit jackets are also a sophisticated option for layering. If you don't have a black jacket you love, find one. * Capes: Their run from last winter continues - and for good reason. Capes are striking and can luxe up any outfit.
