Audra: Seasons is here and that means it’s time to completely clear out the closet and make room for the new fall fashion must haves. We went to People’s Style Watch Deputy Editor Joyce Chang to find out how you can get the hottest trends at an affordable price.
Joyce: This fall is all about fun wearable trends so anyone can do these things and their available at every price point. I’m wearing one of the must haves and it’s all about the chic dress. We’ve seen a chic dress before but this season update is in the extra detail so this one from Banana Republic has a little ruffle here so that’s one of the things we can look for but it can be a rich color, it can be an interesting neckline, it can be draping. There’s just a little something extra to make the seasons chic dress something for right now.
One of the bad trends for the season is the saddle bag and I really love the saddle bag because its so versatile, I’s one of those— it’s a hybrid between a structure bag and really slouchy bag so you get the best of both worlds and it fits really sleekly against your body so you can a put a ton of stuff in it but you still look really polished and tailored and one of the seasons newest trends is the lug soled heel.
It’s sounds a little bit weird but actually it’s really quite wearable and really cute. It’s all about a polished pump with a little bit of platform and then a rubber bottom sole. So it’s a practical way to wear platforms and really high heels. These are from Jessica Simpson and they are actually only $89 dollars so you can really get a lot of luck for not a ton of money.
Audra: When accessory can go a long way, when it comes to making just the right statement.
Joyce: This is a terrific piece that will update whatever you have in your wardrobe and it looks really rich, it looks really expensive and you can spend and splurge on this. This is from Troy— its $395. This is from Yoshi and it’s only $89 so you can get a lot of loved ones again for no a ton of money.
Audra: This season is all about being versatile from style to color.
Joyce: The color of the season is red and the great thing about red is that it is’ flattering so many skin tones and it’s really almost a neutral in it of itself and it adds just a great pop to whatever you’re wearing. You can splurge on a Marc Jacobs bag or once again these are from Jessica Simpson and their $89 or this bag for fashion is $50.
Audra: And Joyce’s recommendation if you are only able to have three of the new fall looks.
Joyce: I would definitely go with the bold gold necklace. The same with the sheet dress you’ll have it for season end, season out its something that you’ll keep in your closet and I think it’s really fun a hit of color I think red really never goes out of style it’s just really having a moment now. So a great red accessory like a great bag, you can wear it for many seasons to come.
