RIPPED FROM THE RUNWAY
Guest Blogger - April Clark, Fashion Aficionado, Beauty, Lifestyle Blogger
From the catwalks of fashion week, we found this season's hottest trends at Crabtree! Now you can get the designer looks right here in the Triangle from our featured retailers Brooks Brothers and New York & Company.
1. CHECKS & TARTAN
Men's designers revisited plaid patterns and tartans for fall. Look for classic suiting and accessories like ties, scarves, and overcoats. This entire look is from Brooks Brothers (at Crabtree Valley Mall). Our model is wearing a plaid sportcoat light blue dress shirt, navy dress pant and mustard tie and handkerchief.
Places to shop the trend: BROOKS BROTHERS, MACYS, TICKNORS, BELK, J. CREW
The trick to this trend is not to look too padded. Find pieces like a vest or sport coat that give the look of padding without overwhelming your frame. Our model is wearing a lightly quilted burgundy vest layered with a plaid shirt and gray zip sweater anchored with small wale corduroy pants all from Broother Brothers (at Crabtree Valley Mall) and and blue leather boots from Clarks.
Places to shop the trend: BROOKS BROTHERS, GAP, BELK, J. CREW, OLD NAVY
3. CHECK MATE
Ladies, you too will find tartan, plaid, or check on the list of this seasons' must haves list. Find it on pantsuits, preppy pleated skirts, mannish coats, and even on accessories like handbags. Our model is wearing New York & Company gray and wine dress pants, off the shoulder rose top and coordinating rose heels, topping off the look with accessories and black tote.
Places to shop the trend: NY & COMPANY, ANN TAYLOR, CHICOS, WHITE HOUSE BLACK MARKET, J. JILL
Not a new textile, but rather a new way of wearing it! Camouflage is showing up in everything from shoes to dress to jeans and more. Wear it head to toe or wear it as a neutral in separates like a t-shirt or sweater. Our model is wearing camouflage pants with Army green anorak jacket with accessories from New York & Company and Kenneth Cole suede sneakers from The Walking Company.
