I’m over summer. Like, so over it. I long for chilly breezes that require long sleeves and loads of layers. To me, fall fashion is fun fashion. It’s when we can play and get edgy. Let’s face it: summer is too hot for edgy.
So if you’re looking forward to an autumn of magical fashion, I suggest you start with French Connection. Why? Because the brand’s Autumn/Winter 2014 collection has just hit its website, and it’s so stunning, gorgeous, and breath-taking that you absolutely have to check it out now. It looks how fall should feel – like an thrilling new beginning to a magical end of the year.
But keep this in mind: just because summer ends doesn’t mean that florals go away. In fact, the floral trend continues through Fall 2014, just in darker tones. And think green… pine green to be exact. Of course, black remains a staple, and glimpses of lace and sheer are still current for fall. However, I also urge you to experiment with black and white, in the form of color blocking, checkerboard, or stripes. The black and white autumn/winter fashion trend is just too fun to miss. So, don’t.
