Denim and oversized sweaters
Mary Ellen Fernandez
Fall has officially arrived and with it comes cool mornings, changing leaves and of course the latest fashion trends. This season seems similar to that of last season with one small (or should I say big?) change: everything is oversized. Coats, sweaters, t-shirts you name it, nothing is true to size. This trend can be seen on the runways of New York, Paris and Milan in an array of styles, colors and textures. Designers like Stella McCartney are utilizing oversized sleeves and trousers to give a fresh look to professional casual wear.
Let’s be real, Fall is the perfect season to enjoy the cozy feeling of an oversized article of clothing. The fun thing about wearing oversized things is that you can mix and match your fits. You can wear an oversized, chunky sweater with tight-fitting jeans or a form fitting camisole with baggy- fit boyfriend jeans. The possibilities are endless and so are the fabric choices to be made. The most popular this fall are mohair, suede, cotton and of course denim.
This season has also called for a good boot, whether it be in the style of a simple Chelsea or a tougher looking biker cut. It’s all about treating your feet to the latest in leather or suede with a slight heel. Pairing these styles with your choice of a straight-leg jean and frayed bottom or with a simple pair of culottes is the perfect fall outfit. Don’t be afraid to show off your ankles this season; pairing a cut-off pair of jeans with some low Chelsea boots is the perfect way to keep cool on a warm Autumn day.
So remember: when it comes time to gear up for the season, it’s all about the oversized fit, denim, the leather or suede boot and letting your ankles take a breather in a pair of cut-off jeans or trousers. These fall fashion finds can be integrated into any wardrobe, whether you like to keep it casual or dress professional. You can enjoy your football Sundays or your pumpkin flavored chais in warm, cozy clothing that will be sure to have you on this season’s best dressed list.
