Clearly one of fall’s go-to styles, sweaters are a fool-proof way to dress for the chillier months to come!

Mixing function with fashion, style gurus are wearing their sweaters in totally fresh ways and seem to be seeking out more unique styles this fall season. Take a look at some cozy options that have been on our radars!

October 1st, 2019 by Jennifer Beile The Five 80’s Trends You’ll be Seeing this Fall & How to Style Them

Trends cycling back into fashion from the ’80s is not new. This year, we’ve seen the resurgence of kitten heels, bike shorts, neon colors, and chunky sneakers. But this fall, more trends that we (rightfully) bid adieu to more than two decades ago will be cycling back into style. The key to pulling off these bold ’80s trends without looking like you’re dressed in your Halloween costume is subtle. The art of being subtle while trying to style neon colors, bows, lace, exaggerated sleeve,s and shoulder details seems almost impossible. The solution is to focus on one aspect of a trend you’re interested in and build an outfit around it, not completely of it. Then, keep the rest of the outfit understated.

Acid Wash Denim

One of the many current denim trends is the rise of acid wash jeans. This faded wash is not just being resigned to bottoms, but jackets, dresses, and jumpsuits too.

Prairie Dresses

Ruffles, lace, and puffy sleeve details are all components that make up the sweet, nostalgic prairie dress that is pretty and flattering for all body types. They can be styled in a variety of ways, from rocker chic to free-spirited boho.

Strong Shoulders

Shoulder pads are back! They may not be as big as they were in the ’80s, but the strong detail will give you the confidence that you deserve. Throw a strong-shouldered blazer atop your outfit for a smart casual look.

Scarf Prints

Traditional scarf motifs have been expanded from strictly scarves to blouses, skirts, dresses, and even accenting accessories and jackets. Pair these bold pieces with otherwise minimalist outfits to make a statement this season.

Classic Prep

My Instagram feed is full of influencers and style gurus knotting their sweaters over their shoulders, layering a collared button-down under a simple knit sweater, and pairing trousers with loafers. All of these are a nod to the classic prep school chic of the ’80s.

September 30th, 2019 by Samantha Furno 5 Fall Trends that are Totally 90’s

There is no denying that the 90’s were a decade in fashion that will truly never be forgotten. This past summer, we saw quite a few nostalgic trends popping up (i.e. bucket hats & singlet tanks) and now that fall is in full swing, we can fully expect to see even more trends inspired by this eclectic decade! I, for one, am super excited to add some 90’s inspired pieces and trends to my cooler weather wardrobe! I’ve rounded up some of my favorite 90’s inspired trends that I have been seeing on Instagram lately and I have a feeling that these looks will inspire you to add some throwback flair to your fall fits!

Longline Jacket

From head to toe, this look is totally reminiscent of the 90’s! Longline leather jackets were a must-have layering piece back then and this chic and functional silhouette is definitely making a comeback for fall 2019.woman wearing 90's style long printed jacket.

September 24th, 2019 by Jennifer Beile Instagram Inspiration for Your Fall Outerwear

Fall is my favorite season for fashion because it means we get to break out layers and outerwear! As I scroll through Instagram each day, I am seeing fall outerwear trends pop out at me, building excitement for the crisp weather to come.  Instead of covering up your style with a coat simply for warmth, celebrate the new season with bold outer layers that showcase your style.

Rich Colors & Bold Prints

Modern updates, like rich colors and bold prints, to classic silhouettes is an unexpected way to refresh your fall style.

Oversized Puffer Coats

Puffer coats get a bad rap for being unflattering but they are practical and oftentimes necessary during the cold months depending on where you live. The comfortable trend has given way to the acceptance of the practical oversized puffer.

Shearling, Sherpa, and Fur

From shearling accents to full-on teddy coats, these cozy materials will help keep you warm and stylish.

Edgy Details

Fringe, mock-croc, and rocker-chic leather jackets add an edgy twist on your fall wardrobe and can surprisingly pair well with a multitude of styles.

Timeless Classics

Of course, classic colors and silhouettes, like a trench or pea coat, will always be a timeless and sophisticated choice.

September 23rd, 2019 by Samantha Furno 4 Fashionistas that Master Fall Neutrals

There is no denying that neutrals are an essential color palette for any wardrobe, no matter the season. When it comes to the cooler months, I personally tend to gravitate more towards these muted hues (specifically beige, black and white) because they are easy to wear, a breeze to mix and match, and effortlessly chic! These neutral hues may be synonymous with the fall and winter season, but there are definitely ways to wear them so that your fits look anything but ordinary! I’ve rounded up four of my favorite fashionistas whose perfectly-styled, neutral colored outfits (and entire IG feed for that matter) will inspire you to wear your go-to neutral pieces in some fresh ways!
