Fall Fashion Forecast – Business Women's Guide to Fashion
As we enter the Fall Season, business women should embrace a new, fun and exciting style for professional success. Fall is a great time to try deep and earthy colors. It is also good to mix and match patterns to create a style of your own. There are many trends that have fallen into this season but we think there are three in particular that are worth holding onto for a chic, comfortable and creative style.
Listed below are New Fall Trends that every business woman should incorporate into her professional wardrobe.
Lace is such a romantic and soft fabric that works well with materials such as cotton, rayon, wool and silk. Lace is also appropriate for the workplace when matched with complimentary styles and looks. Lace is no longer restricted to the black and white colors. Women are buying lace tops and blouses in deep rich colors such as purple, blue, brown and navy. Women can pair these lace tops with fitted suit jackets for a formal appeal. Or they can pair the lace tops with cardigans and v-neck sweaters for a soft layering affect. Lace can also easily move from the office to the lounge for an after work cocktail or networking event. This stylish material is not just limited to clothes, designers are incorporating lace in purses and handbags. Lace is also a wonderful material for shoes and other accessories.
This is the season that women are making fashion investments in their professional wardrobe. Vests which were inspired from the 60's are coming back in style in a mighty way. Whether they are cropped, fitted, one button or three buttons, women are pairing them with nice slacks and a button down shirt. Vests have a slight menswear appeal which adds a subtle edge to a woman's outfit. Vest looks dynamic with skirts to add a more feminine appeal. Skirts can be full, a-line or high at the waist. This season, vests are being made in different colors and fabrics and adding more variety to the classic wardrobe. Women can expect to find vests hot for this season and we think it might spill into the Spring Forecast.
Wide Leg Pants
Wide leg pants are becoming more and more popular and can be worn by almost any body type. We recommend that women get their pants tailored to properly fit their body proportions for creating a smooth and sophisticated silhouette. Wide leg pants were a hit in the 70's are now being mirrored by the younger generation. Wide leg pants look great with a fitted blouse or sweater or fitted jacket to create a balanced look. They should also be paired with heels or shoes with a height or platform to create a longer and leaner look.
Lace + Vest + Wide Leg Pants
A great combination for the fall is all three of these hot styles in one! A lace top with a fitted vest and wide leg pants will be a great business casual outfit to wear on office Casual Fridays, in an informal business meeting with colleagues or associates or an after hours networking event. The look is chic and effortless and very elegant. We encourage ladies to mix and match with colors and textures for a more creative and fun appeal. The sky is the limit with this fantastic wardrobe ensemble.
