Going Strong For Fall
Surveying the style landscape for the season
Story by Mary Conley
From must-have materials to the latest in fancy footwear, Click Stylist and fashion blogger Mary Conley muses on five fresh fashion trends for the fall.
This fall, I have my eyes on embellished mules. This style of shoe can be found in a flat or a heel and I’m a huge fan of both due to the comfort and convenience factors. These shoes slip right on — no need to find socks or fuss with ties and straps. You can find this style of shoe at any price point, from Target to Gucci.
I am so happy to see the abundance of velvet popping up in stores this season. If you are new to this trend, try wearing velvet in a small dose, like a bag or shoes. As you become comfortable, you can try wearing a velvet top or jacket like I have.
I was hesitant about these non-skinny jeans after trying on several pairs thinking, “this isn’t me,” until one day it was! It’s all about the fit and how you style these jeans for your body. Make sure you show a little skin between your shoes and the hem of your jeans.
We’ve all needed to wear a thick coat at some point during the fall and winter months, even being in the South. There is no reason to forfeit your fashion game to stay warm this fall because the bomber jacket is still around. This once solid leather jacket now comes in satin, denim with prints and embellishments. You can find this jacket lined and filled to keep you extra warm. On the nights that are less cool, scrunch up the sleeves and show off your arm candy.
You may be questioning why sneakers are a fashion trend. I am not talking about your Reebok, Adidas or Asics running shoes. Stylish sneakers are everywhere and can be worn with a blazer and jeans to a flowing dress. Models off duty have set the tone for this one and are bringing comfort to our style.
