With the fall season comes an exciting time for Austin, Texas fashionistas. Fabulous looks from fall fashion week are in stores and splashed all over the streets, while the trendiest duds and accessories dominate magazines covers and famed red carpets. Each autumn, certain style trends emerge and remain ever present well through spring and beyond. From the totally popular riding boot to floppy hats and scarves galore, fall fashion serves us sequins, studs, leopard and plaid on a platter, ready to carry us through the cool, autumn months in impeccable Texas-sized style.
There’s no greater time to sport your favorite boots than fall. After months of too casual flip-flops and sexy strappy sandals, combat boots, platforms and peep-toe booties are out in full fashion force. Rock a pair of camel-colored riding boots for a classy equestrian look or a pair of motorcycle boots for serious edge. When attending the typical Texas country concert, sport a pair of cowboy boots tucked into jeans with a plaid shirt. High-heeled booties are a great transitional piece for fall while vibrant scarves in an array of wild prints will keep you looking hot and feeling warm during the season. Add bold pops of color through jewelry and daring makeup and use other cool accessories like floppy hats and fedoras to add a chic, Austin-appropriate bohemian vibe to your fall fashion staples.
Not Too Shabby in Neutrals
Neutral tones that imitate the gloomy weather are extremely popular during the autumn months. Cool shades of gray (50, perhaps?), camel, navy and black work well for fall’s shady weather, so definitely stock up on these pieces but don’t forget a healthy dose of a few bolds and brights. During the fall months, you can go full-on neutral by mixing earth tones, or spice things up by pairing a neutral color with a vivid pop of color -- like for instance, a black sequined turtleneck paired with a bright pink skirt and cute but sexy leopard high-heeled pumps.
Jazzed Up Jewelry
Each fall, menswear-inspired fashion and jewelry make a huge comeback. Gold watches perfectly complement the edgy wardrobe that's become synonymous with fall fashion trends. Chandelier earrings, diamond studs and spiked accessories will add personality to your outfit while you navigate the Austin streets. Necklaces can get lost among the layers worn during fall, so opt for cool cuff bracelets with a killer monochromatic outfit consisting of black skinny jeans and a black blouse to make a raging style statement.
