    ´╗┐Fall In Line Do you wear a fanny pack or shoulder pads inside of your dress? What about Christmas sweaters or the classic high waist mom jeans? Well, if you wear any of this interesting attire, it might be time for a change. Think of fashion as a car " every so often its time for a check up and review. And soon it will be time to get rid of those old styles and collect some newer clothing. By sticking to these five fall fashion trends you will be able to go to work, school, out to the mall and even out on the town in some of the most stylish and nike hat hippest ensembles. Since last fall, leggings have been extremely popular among all age groups. They are stylish and comfortable and easy to put under a short dress or long shirt. However, they also are tight fitting. Many women feel like leggings are only for skinny women or women with small curves. The key is pairing them properly and finding the right legging for your body type, says Dawn Piper, store sales manager for Fashion Bug. People either really love them or hate them, Ms. Piper says. Check out what is going to be right for your body type. Never wear a short shirt above the waistline with a legging. Pair it with long tunic sweaters or dresses. Ms. Piper says leggings look great with boots, ballet flats and heels. A new trend with leggings is a combination of a jean and legging called jeggings. Penney set executive supervisor, jeggings will be a popular addition to fall wardrobes. Its a huge trend and you can find it in all of our brands from juniors up to misses, Ms. Eckard says. Jeggings can be worn with long shirts and tunics. From animal print to a fun jewel colored design, prints and patterns are definitely in for fall. As plaid was a huge trend last fall with jackets and button up shirts, print has gone a step further with metallic designs and bright patterns on cute shirts and dresses. We are seeing lots of military detail, texture and hounds tooth patterns, Ms. Eckard says. Animal print is also a nice accent piece like with hand bags or even an animal print cardigan. However, ladies, there are stipulations when it comes to print. Many prints do not match with other prints. Trying to match two separate prints can ultimately destroy your outfit. You never want to mix up prints, Ms. Eckard says. If youre wearing a top thats a print, you never want to mess it up with a print bottom. The greatness of these three cover ups is that they can help modify your outfit. You can wear a strapless top to work by throwing on a cardigan. Or you can style up a plain shirt with a fun vest. Penney sales manager Karen Clisbee explains the benefits of cardigans. Theres a lot you can do with a cardigan, Ms. Clisbee says. It goes with everything and is something you can wear every day. Though some women object to it, skinny jeans are said to be universal. Penney and Fashion Bug staff, skinny jeans are for all ages and all sizes. Penneys new Liz Claiborne line, which features skinny jeans for a target age range of 35 to 54. Its cross generational paired with how you wear it, Ms. Eckard says. Whats important is the color and wash of the jeans. As juniors can wear the acid colors, older women can go with the classic color of jean. If youre a larger size, the darker skinny jeans are also more sliming. Black is a major and classic trend because it can be worn with any color. Black jeans or a black skirt is perfect for any printed top or even a jewel tone or bright color. Use black as a tool to wear those more daring colors and patterns. Also, black has a slimming effect, which makes you appear smaller. You want to buy that one piece thats going to take you through, Ms. Piper says. That includes a great pair of black pants. Its professional and you can look really clean and polished. You have to have black trousers, a black skirt and a functional black dress. OK, so maybe youre not fashionable and think this article is stupid. Unfortunately youre probably not alone. A common excuse for most women is that they simply dont care about trends or what others think about their clothing. However, fashion is more than keeping up with trends, its also a way to build confidence and carry yourself differently, Ms. Piper says. Its something we all can take pride in no matter what size we are or economic background we have, Ms. Piper says. I want somebody to feel confident and have the right fit. When they have the right outfit, they are happy and they carry themselves differently. So, place these five trends in your back pocket and remember them on your next shopping spree. These trends are simple, convenient and can make any woman feel confident, secure and of course, sexy. 1. Super tight jeans: As too much cleavage can leave men uninterested, many women are not interested in seeing every curve and muscle of a mans lower half in too tight jeans. No matter if you are seemingly thin or pleasantly plump, leave the skinnys to the women. 2. Low v neck tees: Originally, low v neck tees were only worn by women. nike shoes 7c Then men started wearing shirts that were lower cut mainly to comfort the neck. Then the v neck became a deep v neck and everything went downhill. Eventually this trend turned into men showing off bird nike outlet allen chests and chest hair. Neither are desired. 3. Cosby sweaters. Though Bill can pull it off, lets remember that The Cosby Show was more 20 years ago. No matter if youre 20 or 70, gentlemen, no busy printed, random colored sweaters. If you choose a sweater, it should be a solid or pastel color, if not black or white. 4. Tank tops as shirts: Undershirt wearers, listen up. Those tops are for underwear, meaning under your clothes. So, we shouldnt see these paper thin shirts at the mall or at a grocery store. Please keep those shirts under your clothes at all times. 5. Socks with sandals. Birkenstocks with socks are not OK, especially if you have colorful socks or socks with patterns. Whatever the case, monitor your foot attire. If you have nice jeans and a polo on, complementing it with socks and Birkenstocks or Nike slip ons is not a compliment at all.
