As fall SLOWLY approaches, one must wonder what is in style?
Working in retail, I am lucky enough to follow fashion closely, along with my Google alerts that pop up daily. I love following the different trends for each season.
This fall its all about the bottom, pants and jeans that is. There are so many more options for work, leisure and play. There is the jegging, or jean leggings, cigarette pants, skinny dress pants, and so on. Because there are so many different trends and styles for this fall, I thought I would put together a post about the top choices.
First and foremost, skinny is in..... pants that is. Skinny jeans have become a staple BUT this year skinny pants are a great option for work which allows for a very sleek look yet still professional. Remember with a skinny bottom you want to have more volume on top so you can balance out.
Skinny jeans are everywhere from straight leg to ultra skinny, it just depends on what style and look you are going for.
** If you want to try a more daring style, go with jeggings. This is a great way to show off those fabulous legs of yours. You can also try a skinny leg pant in a stretchy material for a great night out look.
Great top choices to pair with include:
Shark bite tees
Banded bottom tops
Layering pieces like flyaway cardigans, boyfriend jackets or military jackets
Just to name a few....
Military and cargo influences are huge this fall. Look for pants with details, including zippers, and extra pockets. Also try to find work pants in army green or navy to spice up your work wardrobe and be fashion forward.
Hardware, washes and details oh my! Everything from Acid wash jeans to studded designs/ details accent fall bottoms. From pants to jeans, more washes, colors and details are being offered to spice up your look. Be brave and try it all at once. These jeans from Express are the prefect example.
You could also try a pair of dress pants in herringbone or houndstooth with buckle details, like these on the left. There are also more edgy dress pants with studded details to let the inner rocker shine, while still keeping it classy for work.
When it comes to what washes to wear for jeans , faded grey or black is a great choice along with dark denim. These jeans from Gap are perfect examples of washes and fits to try.
Whether you want a subtle fashion forward look or an outright fashion statement, pants and jean this fall give you plenty of options. Glam rock, military and different materials allow for hundreds of choices to choose from. It's all up to you and how you want to wear them.
Remember, fashion is fun. It is uniquely you.
