It’s never too early to start thinking about fall fashion, which is arguably the best time of the year for dressing. It’s cold enough to wear all of your fave pieces at the same time (helloooo, layers!), but warm enough to actually go out and about to show off your fit. Exciting, right? So, why wait?! Plus, with so many clutch deals and stylish finds available in stores, now’s the time to get a head start on fall clothing and accessory shopping.
One fall essential is a fluffy, cozy wrap. Check out the Katydid Camo Wrap – the camo trend is still going strong and a wrap like this is perfect for sitting around a fire or in the stands at a Friday night football game. Cozy and cute? Check and check! A great vest is also one of the best outerwear options for the in-between weather of fall. The Anorak Midi Vest is a staff favorite at SHIFT. The extra length means extra cozy!
And although we hate to put our toes away til next summer, wearing some stylin’ new kicks will make it more appealing. A pair of leopard-print slip-ons are perfect to wear with your jeans – neutral, yet fun. Or try a pair of sneakers embellished with sparkles and stars, like the Pamela Sneaker by ShuShop. You won’t miss those sandals at all!
The transitional nature of fall means you need a great transitional dress! Although layering a sweater or jacket over your favorite sundress can certainly work, why not try a beautiful fall style like the Sugarlips Double Take Ruffle-Hem Dress? The long sleeves are more appropriate for fall, but the short, ruffled hemline is still a super-fun look on a warmer fall night.
So, as you prepare to cover up for the fall season, look for everything from matching sets (cozywear pants and tops) and faux leather leggings and jackets (especially motorcycle style) to boots, blazers, jackets and coats – these are the killer fall fashion items to add to your cart ASAP. Straight-leg jeans with distressed whiskering and a variety of hemlines are back! Florals continue in breezy tops with structure but a feminine hint of ruffle at the cuff and shoulder. Puff-sleeved sweaters and those with gorgeous embroidered detailing rock! And we’re not just talking everyday basic fashion, either – at SHIFT in Downtown Flint, we’ve got plenty of on-trend clothes and accessories from the great affordable brands and luxury designers you love.
