5 Fall Fashion Trends
5 Fall Fashion Trends
This is September–the fashion addict’s favorite month. A new season means a new reason to reach the limit on your emergency credit card. From fringe to American classics, local boutiques are offering the latest in designer trends to keep your closet fit for the queen you are.
1 Shake Like Tina
Can we officially stop calling fringe a trend? Like non-committed boyfriends, fringe likes to come and go. This season, more designers are shaking the trend over to the classic column. There is a right way to do fringe. Like a good shoe, fringe should make the outfit without overpowering it. This will keep you looking runway ready as opposed to the main attraction at the fall rodeo. Before diving into a fringe-covered dress, try slowly adding this trend with fringe-accented tops and accessories. Above all remember: less is definitely more! If you can’t trust your over-compensative personality to make this look work, let the good people at Hip & Swanky and Deer Creek Boutique lead you in the right direction.
2 Shine Bright Like Rihanna
Disco fever is back this fall as more designers are packing on the glitter. Fall’s runway shows were filled with glitter dresses, skirts and even boots. And as we all know, what shines on the runway will soon find it’s way into local discount bins. If you’re not quite ready for glitter, find your version of this fashion-do by sparkling up your outfit with a bright top. Head to Midtown’s Nhu Avenue for the best options.
3 Strut like Beyonce
The bootie is back with a twist! Last fall, the bootie was a must-have in every fashionista’s closet. Before ending your monthly summer pedicure, give your toes one last shine with the open-toe bootie. Don’t wait to try this trend. No seriously, stop reading now and place an order because we’re all too aware of the unpredictability of Oklahoma weather. Get your strut on before the dropping temps make this look unbearable. Skip the hefty tag at the department store and head to Mode in Midtown Oklahoma City. They offer booties in a wide variety of styles that won’t break the bank!
4 Smize (Smile with the eyes) like Tyra
Fashion is much more than pretty clothes. Pull of the right head-to-toe look with the perfect makeup palette. It’s important to note that everything that shimmers on the runway doesn’t necessarily translate to wearable fashion. So before throwing on glitter eyeliner just like your favorite model, let the friendly consultants at Mac properly match you with the right makeup. Head to Oklahoma City’s Michael Harris Studios, MHBeauty.com, to schedule in-depth makeup tutorials and to find the perfect eyelashes.
5 Recall Lauren Bacall
True classics never die. The floral is surviving summer and has become an instant rave for fall. There’s a right way to wear this look without resembling a comforter or bathroom wallpaper. Tone it down! Let the floral be the accent of the outfit. Mix it with denim. A flowing floral kimono, ripped denim and a chunky heel is all you need this season. Try a dark vintage-style print to make this look work best for fall. Let the style consultants at Lush Fashion Lounge pull this look together for you. They offer floor-length kimonos in an array of colors and prints.
