One of the best times of the year to update your wardrobe is with the fall season! There is just something special when that first morning arrives and you can finally wear your favorite sweater.
We may have to wait a little bit longer in Arizona, but it is still a thrill when that day arrives.
This fall is all about color!
Ever since the Pantone Color Institute named magenta as the 2023 color of the year, all shades of red have been popular. Look for this color in handbags, shoes, sweaters and coats. A red with blue undertones or even an orange/red are all in style. The bolder the better.
The denim maxi skirt is going to be huge as we head into autumn. This skirt is making a comeback in a huge way.
It is just as comfortable as jeans and can be dressed up or down. A T-shirt and flannel shirt with tennis shoes is a very casual look. If you add a silk blouse, a blazer and heels, this look becomes instantly more formal.
The slightly oversized plaid button down is again a staple for the fall wardrobe. The more oversized the better. Anything that looks like it came from a man’s closet is right on trend. This shirt is amazing on its own or layered over a shirt or tank.
We have seen the “shacket” or shirt/jacket for a few seasons now, and its popularity is still growing. The beauty of this fashion essential is that it looks great over jeans or leggings. For 2023, a shacket in corduroy or a bold plaid pattern are especially stylish.
Now is the time to head into your favorite boutique and look for what is new for fall. Besides finding some great summer clearance items, you can get a look and see what is coming for the new season.
