Fall in love! Here’s 5 fashion trends on tap for fall 2015
Fall is fashion’s favorite season. Look no further than the style magazines that hit the racks in August and are practically as thick as encyclopedias, gushing about the season’s hottest looks.
Sure, we’re still sweltering in summer’s heat and there are plenty of days left to wear tanks and shorts. But, soon enough, we’ll be trading out our pink lipsticks for rouge shades, kicking up our heels in leather booties and accessorizing with gorgeous plaid scarves and pumpkin spice lattes.
Here’s what’s on tap for fall 2015. We’re shopping designer looks for less at Belk, where you’ll earn 2 percent Cash Back through ShopAtHome.com — because saving is always in style.
Let your inner-90’s child rejoice. The choker necklace has a choke-hold on the fall 2015 jewelry trends. Designers like Emilio Pucci, Marc Jacobs and Alexander McQueen debuted the revived choker trend on their runway shows previewing fall 2015 lines. If you rocked the trend in your youth, you’ll noticed the choker jewelry this time around has lightened up some, with delicate wire chokers and open clasps. This gold-tone metal choker is glitzy and makes a perfectly trendy statement without breaking the bank. Pair it with a V-neck T-shirt or a strapless dress. BCBGeneration Diamond Cut Crystal Wire Choker Necklace, $24 (plus limited time 2% Cash Back), belk.com
Fringe detailing is still in full effect. You’ll definitely see it gracing accessories in the fall — everything from bold, boho fringes on handbags to subtle fringe benefits detailing necklaces. Why not combine the of-the-moment detail with one of our fave fall fashion delights, booties! This stone-colored leather boot has modern detailing with adjustable buckles and fabric laces. The fringe detailing on the toe has a country club prep vibe rather than the 70’s inspired fringe we’ve been spotting in past seasons. Bella-Vita Kody Boot, $124.95 (plus limited time 2% Cash Back), belk.com
Small purses and wristlets are so, well, clutch this season! Make a big statement with a small purse in a bold color. These Coach crossbody pouches have a leather strap that can adjust or detach so you can carry as a crossbody or wear it on your wrist. With a soft, pebble leather, it’s roomy enough to carry your essentials like your phone, keys, credit card and fave fall shade of lipstick. Coach Polished Pebble Leather Crossbody Pouch, $112.50 (plus limited time 2% Cash Back), belk.com
This season’s shift dresses are getting a bold makeover. We’re seeing lots of pattern mixing on the dresses — with florals, chevron, geometric shapes, stripes and damask prints coming in dramatic jewel tones and bright bursts of color. The sleeves are a little bit roomier, and, the fashion-forward can give the dramatic bell shape sleeves a try. For autumn 2015, we’re loving the chevron and floral patterns on this shift lightweight shift dress. When the weather cools, pair it with some sheer navy tights and a neutral boot. Madison Leigh Split Sleeve Floral Printed Shift Dress, $60.99 (plus limited time 2% Cash Back), belk.com
Look for scalloped detailing this fall on everything from blouse and skirt hemlines to trims on blazers. Designer Oscar de la Renta is a big fan of the fresh cut. We’re especially looking forward to incorporating the scalloped designs into our work wardrobe — giving a fashion-forward jolt to our traditional blazers and shell blouses. This Tahari blazer with a contrasting trim and scalloped front is perfectly tailored and will pair nicely over a shell or dress for a polished and professional autumn look that is so “right now.” Tahari ASL Scalloped Open Front Jacket, on sale $77.40 (plus limited time 2% Cash Back), belk.com
