Happy Monday, ladies!  Let’s discuss what fall fashion says about current times!

I went out to The Shops at La Cantera recently…made some observations and spoke to those in the fashion industry and learned more about what we will see this fall.

This is my friend Denise who works at Dillard’s in the Shops at La Cantera.

According to sales figures, she is literally one of the top sales associates around and knows the industry.

Here is what I learned…

What fall fashion says about the current times

We will continue to see designs on the more casual side…even for some professional wear.

More women are working from home and some areas have slowed down the “return to normal” yet again. 

More in our age group chose to retire to leave the professional office life for other options…(I am one of those!)

While there are fun neutral styles on the horizon…fall fashion will be bright with color.

Artists, fashion designers, marketing professionals, graphic artists, interior designers….all study and know the psychology of color.

The world has been and continues to be under great stress, and women are craving color…so the fashion industry will deliver…to put smiles on our faces.

Fashion and home decor are two areas where consumers found enjoyment through the pandemic and the focus will be there for fall.  And, yes…in all color palettes!

Denise showed me a lookbook from one of my favorite professional brands, Ming Wang.  

Statement jewelry will be everywhere this fall and for the first time, Ming Wang, will join in the fun and is offering more casual style.  

I am pleased to see that these amazing necklaces are also affordable and will be carried by Dillard’s.

But, check out this fun slideshow for a taste of statement jewelry you can wear now…I love statement necklaces!

Like jewelry and scarves, shoes will be fun, bold and colorful for fall.  These espadrilles are offered on Johnny Was.

Shoes will be offered in metallics, embellished, decorated and bold colors.  So if you want fun on your feet, you will be able to find it.

Here are a few ideas of what we will see more of going forward…

Remember, vibrant color, smiling, and joy just seem to go together like cake and ice cream.   

I know that for me beginning to wear vibrant color again has added to my joy and smiling.  It does lift the spirits. 

Even if you are someone who wears predominantly neutrals, you might think of ways to pop color more in order to pop a smile!

But, let me ask you…how does wearing more color make you feel and are you turning to it more lately…please share….and no matter what you wear, make sure you….
