Getting ready for long sleeves, layers and pumpkin spice lattes? August is almost over, let's look at the biggest trends for fall. If you're in a hurry, you can start shopping directly from our Fall Collection.
Layering: Let's start with the most obvious: Every fall we want to layer up, so make sure you have some easy items for layering. We suggest a tank, an open plaid shirt and a jacket over a pair of jeans with a leather belt, cool booties and a good handbag. On chilly mornings, add a scarf and a hat of your preference.
Sweaters: Well, this is maybe even more obvious than the point above, but sweaters are a huge fashion trend, and there are so many beautiful knits this season – especially with big stripes. Many of them are still a little oversized, but we're also seeing more of the regular sized sweaters compared to previous years. A sweater for every style and body type is out there, so make sure you have some cozy knits ready for when the temperature drops.
Statement Coat: Faux fur, animal print, oversized silhouette, long belted coat, bold colors, shearling details. There are a lot of options for a statement coat this fall and winter, and getting dressed is so much easier when you can just pop a cool coat over a semi-interesting outfit. And just like that, you feel just as powerful as Beyonce.
Plenty of plaids: We live in a state where plaid shirts are basically worn all year every year, but this season the plaid, tartan and check are major trends. Not only the regular shirt, it comes in all colors and plaid sizes, and it is covering dresses, leggings, coats, bags, suits and sets, with a bit of an '80s flirt.
Ruching: Introduce your wardrobe to a ready-to-party ruched midi dress or skirt, hugging your body in a very flattering way. Don't be afraid to try them on, they look a lot better on the body than on the hanger.
Mixed prints: If you are feeling confident, why not rock an outfit of mishmashed prints. To make it a little less crazy, try mixing one big print with one small print, for example a bold black & white striped pants with a top with small print, and maybe add one neutral solid color item. Or two prints in the same color tones to keep it more subtle and cohesive – like a striped pair of jeans with a blue printed top. Easy.
The '80s: The fashion world is embracing the fab '80s details like statement earrings, kitten heels, exaggerated shoulders, the prints, and women's power suits and sets. New for the season is the mix of the '80s and a western flare with (snake skin) booties, cowboy details, and fringe.
Our new fall styles will arrive several times a week online, but remember that our seven stores get new arrivals daily! And the selection might be even bigger, so make sure to visit us in Denver, Breckenridge, Avon, Edwards and Steamboat if you're around. (PS: Ruby Jane in Breckenridge and Steamboat are now also carrying Plus Sizes.)
We will definitely be layering up in sweaters and leopard, adding '80s earrings and topping it off with a statement coat. Which fall trend is your favorite?
