The fall New York Fashion Week showcased many trends and styles worth trying this season. A leading retailer of wholesale clothing allows shoppers to try these different styles without exceeding their budget. When looking to update your fall and winter wardrobe, the wholesale fashion experts recommend mixing classic pieces with the hottest trends.
This fall, DO invest in an eye-catching coat. Bold furs, oversize parkas, military-inspired outwear and man-tailored styles were seen on the runways. DON’T forget your hat! Cute and cozy hats are a staple of the fall and winter season, especially in cold climates. Fedoras, floppy knits, and even baseball caps are in!
DON’T shy away from prints, but DO leave those floral and paisley prints for the spring months. Fall prints should remain classic, like hounds-tooth and basic plaids — and DON’T forget leopard print! As one of the hottest prints this fall, leopard matches well with red and brown, and even pink. But, DON’T overdo it when it comes to leopard print. Keep it simple and elegant.
DO pick up an emerald green piece. Pantone chose the shade as its top color for 2013, so it’s no wonder that it was spotted all over the fall 2013 runways. From dresses, to a structured bag, wholesale jewelry and heels, this hue is a great go-to neutral for fall 2013. Layer the color with other jewel tones for an instant classic, yet trendy, outfit.
DON’T be afraid to mix colors, patterns and textures. Sheer top over leather pants; or a bold color sweater over a printed shirt. But DON’T go crazy with colors or patterns when layering pieces. An outfit with many components should look as streamlined as possible.
DON’T put away those whites. Winter whites were seen on the runways of some of the major designers. DON’T think you can wear winter white only for a night out. A chic coat fits in at the office, and denim works for the weekend. DO pick weather-appropriate whites. Choose staples such as chunky knits, jeans, and jackets that make sense in autumn.
DO reach for a leather piece. Leather can be edgy or feminine, depending on how you style it, and the color you choose. Colored leather is among the leading trends for fall. Pair a leather skirt with a knit, or leather pants with a silk top. DON’T go for an all-leather outfit, however — unless you are into that sort of thing.
Lastly, DON’T forget to accessorize! An easy way to try any of these trends is to take advantage of wholesale jewelry and accessories. Don’t want to commit to a leopard print top? Try a scarf. Don’t want an emerald green dress? Try a chunky necklace. Look for shoes in interesting textures like tweed and suede. And, above all else, have fun!
