Shifting into Fall


Changing leaves, cool days, football games, trips to the cider mill … fall is here!  Something else about fall that makes us happy – besides the cider mill donuts – is the fashion. It’s time to get cozy and embrace the fall trends and must-haves!

During the fall months, layering is key to fashion success. This year, there are two great pieces to successful layering: having something smart and versatile for work and a cozy layer for the rest of the time! The “smart” layer for this season is the tailored blazer – double breasted, without buttons – it doesn’t matter, but having one is key. It can easily dress up an outfit, become your outermost layer over a cute top, a tank, a bodysuit and jeans, or even over a sweater. The next fall necessity is the cozy wrap. It’s so versatile! Throw it over your favorite button-down with jeans, your t-shirt and leggings, or even a sweater on really chilly days. It’s great for sitting around a bonfire or snuggling on the couch, catching up on Netflix. SHIFT has multiple colors, so you’re sure to find one you like.

Long-sleeve dresses are another fall wardrobe staple and this summer’s ruffles or puffed sleeves are still trending. If a fall wedding is on your social calendar, a great dress – maxi or mini – is a classic choice. The long sleeves with fun cutouts and the swishy skirt of The Clothing Company’s Sand Dollar Dress are perfect for that fall wedding. For something more casual, look at the Anna Kaci Tiered Black Dress and pair it with sneakers for running errands or grabbing lunch with friends on a sunny, fall day or great boots for a fall harvest meal in the evening.

Evergreens are timeless and hold their color all year long. It’s no secret, nature always inspires, and green is a hot color this fall. Pair a top like the Sugarlips Karly Lace Princess Top with jeans for a casual night out or dress it up with black pants and heels. Or add green accents to your look with a new bag! The Haute Shore Greyson Neoprene Tote will give your outfit a pop of green that will brighten up a dreary, Michigan fall day.

Tired of the ruffles? Try fringe, instead! The Cezele Faux Suede Jacket is perfect for a cool fall day! Keep it casual with denim or wear it over a dress or with a skirt. The neutral caramel color will go with just about anything in your wardrobe. Or, check out the Suede Sleeveless Top by TCE for a cool look on a warmer day and the adorable, smaller purses from SHIFT fave, Ahdorned, have a fringed outer seam that makes them the perfect wardrobe accent piece!

Whether you embrace the cooler weather or mourn summer’s end, a wardrobe refresh is fun for everyone! SHIFT in Downtown Flint can provide you with the cozy pieces you need and the fun, trendy items to keep your look current – and warm!

Happy fall, y’all!
