The leaves are falling, the weather is getting cooler and fall fashion trends are in full swing! From sweaters to boots to scarves, I am loving the fashions on display in Easton store windows this season. After Easton Fashion Night, I have tons of new fall looks that I need to wear ASAP!
I have to say, I love the details Express is featuring this season. Ribbons on sweaters, delicate lace and prominent buttons are some of my favorites. Vineyard Vines also always does a fantastic job with taking bright and pastel colors and making them work with seasonal items, and this fall is no different. (Plus, they have some stellar plaid shirts at the moment that I’m falling for)!
Speaking of, this year’s fall colors are beautiful! Burgundy and navy are my go-to colors this season. Lately, I’ve been mixing warm neutrals into my wardrobe, such as deep brown and mauve. When I’m looking for an extra pop of color, red is the way to go. Jewelry, scarves and boots are the best way to add an accent to a neutral outfit!
Fall can be chilly, but don’t worry! You can still look cute and stay warm. Scarves and boots are an easy, yet trendy way to stay warm when it’s a bit chillier. Wear some thicker socks under your boots for extra warmth. In addition, jackets are the obvious layer you need when it’s cooler. When buying one, look for something with both practicality and style. With so many options out there, why limit yourself to just one or two?
Enough about me. Because I’m so excited about the styles of the season, I asked some Easton retailers what their go-to looks are this fall and put all their answers in one spot for you. From autumn colors to warm sweaters and trendy fall fashion staples, here’s where you can get the look at Easton!
What was your biggest inspiration in putting your Fall Fashion Preview looks together?
Tommy Bahama: Our biggest inspiration was the color scheme and versatility of our fall collection. The colors are rich and complementary, and the product itself is perfect for an Ohio summer-to-fall transition. We are featuring essential core items with pops of the signature Tommy Bahama look and lifestyle.
Fab’rik: Simple but classy looks that can transition from day to night were our biggest inspiration this season. Spanx leggings can be paired with a t-shirt or sweatshirt for the day, and then dressed up at night with a blouse and booties. We also love to pair a lace tee and slip dress with tennis shoes and a jean jacket for a casual day, and add booties or dressier shoes with a short cardigan for the perfect night time look.
Lilly Pulitzer: Our biggest inspiration is our newest collection that just came out, which is a part of our fall line this year.
What is your favorite trend for Fall 2017?
Tommy Bahama: Separates and layering are definitely our favorite trend for fall. It is so easy to build a whole wardrobe off of just a few items, while still creating completely different looks. We carry a ton of reversible items that extend this trend even further.
Fab’rik: Velvet and red are big this fall! We love the velvet kimonos, jackets and pants that should be arriving at Fab’rik soon!
Lilly Pulitzer: Paisley, fringe, one-shoulder looks and smocking are our favorites this season!
ELOQUII: A strong shoulder and dramatic sleeves will be huge this fall. Sweaters with ruffles and stripes, moody floral patterns, powerful red colors and athletic touches will all be part of what you’ll see in our stores this season.
What are your favorite pieces from the Fall Fashion Preview looks that you put together?
Tommy Bahama: For ladies, the Sherpa Vest is an absolute favorite. It is reversible, warm, and still very chic. Not only does is compliment a blouse and denim, but it looks great over a maxi or sweater dress! Of course, we wouldn’t be a true Columbus store if we didn’t mention our other favorite...the long-awaited OSU Camp shirt. It is such a classy “Tommy” twist on a fan favorite.
Fab’rik: Spanx leggings go with everything! You can dress them up with a blouse and booties, or dress them down with a plain tee. Not only are they comfortable and make you feel good, but also your "lumps and bumps" magically disappear with their signature Power Waistband. We also love long dusters for layering!
Lilly Pulitzer: Our favorite pieces are the Tatum cardigan, Mila shift, Elsa top, Captain popover, weekender crop and Martinque sweater.
I'm seriously falling in love with these new trends! Which fashion-forward fall looks are you sporting this season?
