80’S PREP FOR FALL

Though the weather is still ablaze with Summer’s heat, it is time to start thinking about Fall Fashion. As “Back to school” sales and Autumn’s holiday decor fill the stores, let’s take a look at one of our favorite Fall Fashion trends to hit this year’s Runways. You don’t have to be in school to try this Season’s “College Prep” style with a nod to bright colors from the 80’s. Scroll down to see how you can wear this look without appearing too “frumpy” or outdated. Get ahead on your Fall Fashion style by including some of our top picks below.

Taylor Swift A line Fall dressA LINE PREPPY DRESS

One of our favorite celebrity stylists, Taylor Swift rocks an “A line” pale blue dress last week on the streets of NYC. Since she is surrounded by her runway model bffs, Taylor is always one of the first celebrities to show us what is trending in Fashion. The “A line” dress is a perfect dress choice since the cut fits and flatters all ages and body types, and segues perfectly from Summer into Fall. Get Taylor’s similar style with Hale Bob’s blue A line Ponte lace dress. Pair the look with cute kitten heels and a handbag for warmer days, and accessorize with a button down sweater and chic booties as the weather cools. Either way, this is one of our top picks for Fall Fashion 2015.

Our second favorite look to return for Fall is the cropped jean. This Season, forgo your skinnies, and go for a more relaxed style with the boyfriend cut. The cropped boyfriend jean is perfect paired with a simple white tank and sneakers for an “Athleisure” look. Or style with a flowy silk blouse, pumps, and clutch for an evening out on the town. We love Citizens of Humanity’s relaxed Dylan cropped jeans or Joe’s Jeans’ rolled classic cropped paired with Hale Bob’s white lace trimmed tank and classic white Converse. Top with a “military” style jacket for chillier Fall days. Try Hale Bob’s Taupe stretch Ponte jacket for perfect preppy style. Don’t foget to carry your jeans into the evening hours with Hale Bob’s flowy ivory silk blouse, Sam Edelman nude pumps and classic Rebecca Minkoff ivory clutch.

 

           CABLE KNIT SWEATER

Another classic look we are loving for Fall is the ever durable cable knit sweater. A style that never seems to go out of date, the cable knit sweater is having a renewed comeback for Fall 2015. Designers this Season have updated the look by combining the traditional style with fur, bright colors, or patterned prints. Get your own “cable knit” style with Liberty Garden’s fur trimmed sweatshirt and cable knit sweater paired with 7 For All Mankind’s dark wash bootcut jeans and oversized leather handbag from Fossil. For another “preppy” style look, pair your sweater with Hale Bob’s classic black A line skirt, perfect for the office or lunch out with the girls.

WHITE SKINNIES AND GINGHAM  

Carry a bit of Summer into Fall with your favorite white skinny jeans paired with trending gingham for 2015. We love Citizen’s of Humanity’s Thompson skinny white jeans or the high water cropped from Joe’s Jeans paired with Banana Republic’s comfy Boyfriend navy gingham button down shirt and Via Spiga ankle strap sandals. Carry your skinnies into the evening hours and complete your “preppy” Fall look by topping with Hale Bob’s polka dot silk blouse and accessorizing with trendy Kate Spade black ballerina flats and Michael Kors’ black leather cross body bag. Who says no white after Labor Day! Make your own rules this Fall and hit the streets in style.

CAMEL COAT AND PATTERNED BLOUSE

Go classic prep this Fall with a traditional camel overcoat and fitted denim jeans. Bring the look up to date with a uniquely printed patterned blouse and comfy ankle booties. When the weather warms, forgo the coat and wrap a snug sweater around your shoulders “preppy” style. We like Hudson’s Collin skinny jeans paired with Hale Bob’s patterned blouse topped with Diane Von Furstenberg’s warm camel wool blend overcoat and Ivanka Trump ankle boots. For warmer days, go with Bebe’s classic trench coat in blush champaign, a trending color for Fall. Or, wrap Liberty Garden’s cozy Ombre grey sweater around your shoulders for perfect preppy style.

CULOTTES

Before you cringe, don’t be afraid to include this iconic 80’s staple into your wardrobe for Fall 2015. Culottes were a huge trend in the 80’s and they are back in a new and improved style this Season. For an updated Fall evening look, pair your culottes with a comfy sweater, classic tailored heels and jeweled accessories. Go “Athleisure” casual with a comfy fitted Tee or cami and accessorize with your favorite sneakers. We love White House Black Market’s white soft drape culottes paired with Hale Bob’s floral lace black sweater and Stuart Weitzman’s classic black patent pumps for dressier occasions. Stay casual in your culottes with Hale Bob’s black laser cut tank top or black studded silk tank and favorite sneakers. Throw on a black trench or tie on Liberty Garden’s soft pink long sleeve sweater around your shoulders for extra warmth on cooler Fall days. However you choose to style them, be sure to include this staple into your closet this year.

COLORED DENIM

If “preppy” is not quite your style, you can still get in on the 80’s trend with a pair of brightly colored denim jeans. Change up your “jean routine” this Season and add a little color into your life. For an understated style, go with army green denim, trending for Fall, or go “pretty in pink” with a bright fuchsia look. We love Goldsign’s “Misfit” green straight leg jeans paired with a printed button down blouse under a cozy ivory sweater. Or glow bright in Citizen’s of Humanity’s “shocking pink” Thompson skinny jeans paired with a classic denim button down blouse and your favorite ballerina flats. Go beyond basic blue, black, and white jeans for Fall and go bold this Season.
