We all need traditional, sturdy staples in our wardrobes when the weather cools down. But whether it is scarves, jackets or socks, this fall’s staple clothing trend is all about giving a classic, fun twist when dressing for seasonal weather.
Here are some head-to-toe fashion tips for both men and ladies, as brands and designers focus on the basics with a compelling edge.
Extra long scarves and blanket scarves are in style this season, worn any way you can dream up. They are worn as wraps, shrugs, head coverings and more. Wrapped around your shoulders and crossed behind your back, a blanket scarf becomes a wrap or shrug experience to keep you warm. Worn over your head a conventional scarf will protect your ears from the cold wind.
And traditionally wrapped around your neck, the longer scarf becomes, well, just a scarf designed to keep your neck and upper body warm in the coming seasons when the mercury drops.
Belted jackets for ladies are a highlight of the season, according to experts, allowing wearers to style them with versatility to create different looks with the same outfit. And what makes for a bold revival is the denim jacket, as this rugged fabric proves to be a fine defense against cool autumn winds. This season’s denim jackets come in a number of styles and lengths — from short to long, straight-brimmed to fringed.
For men, fall outerwear tends to be layered or padded, and traditional jackets are outfitted with a little bit of excess in too large proportions. Think classic with a twist or business attire with attitude.
Keeping with the basics theme with a twist, think fashion-forward socks. Whether it is rich fall colours, jewel-toned patterns, knit boot socks, or not-so-basic blacks, brands like the iconic Gold Toe churn out on-trend accessories for the season. For example, everybody has heard of the Little Black Dress, so Gold Toe introduces the Little Black Sock — a collection of ladies’s socks that offer styles featuring scalloped edges, stripes, and subtle patterns. This wardrobe staple comes in a wide range of leg covers, fancy trouser socks, and fancy crew, with styles produced from lace, superfine cotton, and microfiber, to name a few. And the brand’s new Fairisle Crew is a conventional sock boot that has a touch of bright colours as a fun nod to sweater season.
When it comes to men’s socks, this season brings a mixture of style and innovation. For example, Gold Toe Fashion Singles includes a number of bold fall colours that incorporate Fresh 24/7 technology to help stop the growth of odor-causing bacteria. This style is very versatile and can be dressed up or down for any occasion. With colourful stripes, new prints and fall patterns, these socks can complete your wardrobe this season.
