Found! Local Fall Fashions
By Kelli Gould
Fall sure knows how to keep us on our toes, doesn’t it? Well it finally feels like it has officially arrived. The weather seems to have caught up with the calendar and one thing is for sure – our wardrobes have been anticipating the cooler weather. Time to pull out the boots, scarves, coats and everything else in your Fall arsenal! However, not everything from last season is going to work for this year. What’s hot and what’s new? Read on to see what a few of the hottest boutiques on the Grid say are the new fall and winter fashion trends.
Look at all the color in these outfits! Just because it’s Fall doesn’t mean we have to wear black, grey and darker colors for the next few months. Fall brings us some of the most beautiful colors so let’s get creative with them!
A popular trend this season is the midi skirt! The longer hemline allows for work appropriate outfits and it’s great for taller ladies! Rire’s mustard polka dot midi skirt is a fun fall color and it looks great paired with a navy and cream crochet lace top for a feminine look. The best part? The skirt has pockets!
Skirt: $48, brown vegan leather belt included.
Heart necklace: $9
If you are looking for a more casual, cool outfit with fun layers and easy color blocking, the middle outfit is for you! ‘Joggers’ are a great way to keep an outfit casual, but still look chic. Paired with a fun, cozy knit patterned cardigan, a super soft bamboo top, and chunky infinity scarf, you’re ready for coffee with the girls.
Scarf: $22 (available in 9 colors!)
Bamboo top: $29
The next fun look is Rire’s fall floral dress, navy cropped cardigan, and a cozy beanie. The cardigan has really cute tan elbow patches! And the beanie is fair trade by Krochet Kids Intl.
Anything you find at Krazy Mary’s is going to make you feel good. Check out the three Fall outfits they put together just for us! Check in at the shop often as they get new goodies delivered weekly!
The outfit on the left – An animal print relaxed sweater/tshirt with rolled up sleeves, paired with a black midi skirt can keep you looking good from office hours to happy hour. Add a statement necklace to finish it off right.
The middle outfit – A blue tunic dress cinched at the waist with one of Krazy Mary’s famous wrap belts. Tie in some killer earrings and drape a long, plaid sweater over this ensemble and you are ready to go!
The outfit on the right – Ladies, don’t fear tie dye, this retro trend is back! Here, a tie dye shirt is paired with a shearling jacket and harem pants. Harem pants are also a blast from the past that are back in fashion and we can all smile about that because they are super comfortable and can be worn casually, with flats or dressed up with some booties.
Identity owner, Stephanie, and Identity fashionista, Casey, look good while showing off the latest threads from Identity Boutique.
Stephanie says while you are out shopping, look for knit oversized boyfriend sweaters and cardigans, snake print tops, burnt colored jeans, and Aztec-inspired jewelry and accessories.
Stephanie also suggests having short booties and combat boots in your Fall footwear collection as well!
Happy Fall shopping, ladies!!
