If you want to invest some money in fall fashion that will not go out of style in a year or two, try some classic styles that have proven their ability to remain timely.
Fall Fashion – Fitted Jacket
A fitted jacket that shows off those womanly curves goes well with a pair of sleek trousers or your favorite pair of blue jeans. This type of jacket can define shapes by creating waistlines and smoothing out lumpy areas. For the casual look chose fabrics such as corduroy or denim. For an evening out, try a fitted jacket made out of leather or velvet.
Fall Fashion – Turtleneck Sweater
Different shaped necklines come and go, but the turtleneck has staying power. Whether you wear the full or mock turtleneck, it is sure to draw attention to your face. If you are like me and cannot stand to have a bulky feeling around your neck, than the mock style is the one for you. It is also a good choice if the full turtleneck itches or scratches your skin around the neck area. To display a wonderful necklace, spangle bracelet or heirloom broach, try a basic black turtleneck, as it is the idea piece to use when accessorizing.
Fall Fashion – Large Leather Bag
Fall inspires women to carry larger bags because they can hold the things we need for the season such as umbrellas, hats and gloves. A large leather bag does not have to be a common accessory. Choose one in a bright color, exotic animal print, or one with silver or gold hardware. Since you will get lots of use out of this big, splurge and buy a designer brand.
Fall Fashion – Knee Boots
Knee boots are an excellent choice for fall weather because they can be paired with jeans, sleek slacks, mini, knee or calf-length dresses or skirts. Try a pair with rolled up jeans or with a pair of slim slacks tucked inside them. Put on a pair of tights under your skirt or dress to help keep your legs warm. For a bolder look, try wearing over-the-knee boots (click here to read about them). In order to keep knee boots a fashion classic, choose a pair with a mid-heel height, about two inches or less. The color, basic black, for your knee boots also helps to retain their staying power.
Fall Fashion – White Blouse
The possibilities of adding a white blouse to your existing wardrobe are endless. Whether it has long or short sleeves, made of cotton or silk, you can really make a statement when it is paired with a stylish sweater or jacket. Try matching a white blouse with an embroidered collar and cuffs to a pair of designer blue jeans.
From jackets to sweaters to boots, these few pieces can be mainstays in your wardrobe.
