Plaid Shirts

A fashion trend to look forward to this fall are button down plaid shirts. Pair a plaid shirt with denim for the ultimate casual look. This outfit option is cozy and relaxing for a day out. It gives you options of using a multitude of color choices from blues, reds, black and white, or a combination. This fashion trend works for both women and men. Accessorize your look by adding a fun necklace or scarf. Plaid shirts can be worn open with a T-shirt underneath, or buttoned.


The love of fringe is still going strong into the fall season. It was popular for the spring and is continuing to be everywhere in women’s fashion. Take your pick from cashmere ponchos, scarves, jackets and shirts. Adding fringe to your outfit of choice will add a statement to your look.

Skinny Waist Belts

Low belts with a pop of color are in the past. As you enter the fall season, accent your clothing with a high-waisted skinny belt. Be sure to choose colors in the grey or black family. Try wearing the increasingly popular denim shirt on denim skirt, with a skinny belt pulling it all together.

A skinny waist belt can help to make the dress form fitting to show off your curves. Sweater dresses can be layered with a cardigan, vest or scarf.
