Susan Stein Fashion & Style 0 Comments


Adapting your wardrobe for Fall/Winter 2016 will be much simpler that you imagined. Just think of the 1970s with a lot of modernity. The newest looks include black and white graphics, classic silhouettes in earthy colors, comfortable knit fabrics, a bit of fringe, and think of coats, capes, and sheer turtlenecks as perfect layering pieces for the chilly weather.

And don't take the culotte trend too lightly. They are starting to look pretty good.

The Classics

Camels, oranges, olive greens and burgundies are reminiscent of the 70's and re-emerge in updated hues..

Return of the Culotte

Yes, this loose and flowy shortened pant is back, but be sure to keep proportion in mind when pairing it with a blouse or sweater.

Plaids and Graphics

No need to go head to toe with this trend. A patterned scarf may be all you need to update the LBD.

Layer, Layer, Layer

A thin turtleneck layer can add a sleek touch.

Coats and Capes


Look for duster coats,  reefers, and capes to keep you covered and draped all season long.

Finally, Falling for Feathers

Just in case you have decided to start from scratch and purchase an entirely new wardrobe, this season has provided so many new trends that you may even be able to mix a few together. And, don't let that “ruffle your feathers,” but rather add some feathers and stay ahead of next season's direction.
