Q&A: Must Have Clothes for Fall

September 21st, 2007

Q: What are the must haves in clothing for Fall that one can buy on a budget?

 Velvet Torch \'Menswear\' Shift DressA:  You’re in luck–the top trends each season are readily available at all price points.  You don’t have to go designer to find great trendy pieces.  Our favorite cheap chic stores are H&M, Forever 21, and Target.

The "must haves" for Fall are the clothes that are not only on-trend but also figure flattering.  Here’s our Top 5 Most Flattering Trends for Fall:

Sleeved Dresses
Style Tip: These dresses, which are great for covering heavy arms, work best in solid colors or small prints.

High Waisted Trousers

Style Tip: Balance your slouchy high-waisted trousers with a fitted top for a small-over-big silhouette.

Geometric Prints
Style Tip: Wear a single geometric print at a time–and spice up the outfit with something brightly colored that picks up on one of the colors in the print.  Note that you don’t have to go designer to find great looking geometric prints.  We love H&M for designer-inspired prints at cheap chic prices.


Style Tip:  We love metallic shoes, which are versatile enough to pair with this season’s brightly colored dresses.  Which metal to choose?  Try pairing warm colors, such as reds, oranges, and yellows, with gold.  Pair cool colors, such as greens, blues, and purples, with silver.

Oversized Collars

Style Tip: To focus attention on your face, make this dramatic detail the focal point of your outfit—and keep the rest of your look simple.

    I’m obsessed with Old Navy, although their sweaters and sweater dresses all seem to fit a little differently. I don’t know what the deal is.

    I don’t know if I agree about the gold with warm colors, silver with cool. I feel like silver’s a little summery actually, but I tend to make up weird rules for myself. I think I would go with more of a bronze color personally though.

    Nice dress in the pic.. I got something slightly similar from H&M recently and New Look do some great outerwear with oversized collars at affordable prices too 😀

    What hose/tights are in style? I like to wear shorter skirts, but cannot stand to have bare legs when it is cold outside!

    I love those tunic-y dresses, sooo cute! I am so glad sleeved dresses are back because I’ve always been attracted to them. I see footless tights everywhere, I think those will be the tights for this fall.

    Yes, I’m all for the sleeved dresses. For those of us who aren’t blessed with picture perfect upper arms, they’re a godsend!
