What is Pre-Fall? It is the term given to the mid-season collections that land in stores the end of June and stay until December. While the mainline trends move at warp speed, the pre-fall collections represent stylish staples that always work. Think of these collections as more accessible and super-useful. Go for lighter weight fabrics to wear now and layer up for winter.
If you reinvent yourself each season or just add a judicious piece or two to your wardrobe, here is some inspiration & trends for a style-studded Fall. One Brilliant Style.
Folkloria - A global array of embroidery, patchwork, lace& fringe. Nothing says date night like ultra-flirty fringe that shimmies with every step. Let the fringe do all the talking and keep your extras to a minimum. We love this piece by Rebecca Minkoff, wear it alone with a skinny or sequined pant or play it down when worn over a simple white blouse. Either way it is sure to add chic to your fall wardrobe. $298.00 available at One Brilliant.
Clashing Prints - A fun punchy pattern has the power to make you look chic, in two seconds flat. Why this look works, the strips on top play nicely against the graphic motif on the bottom. It is a cannot-miss-me outfit. We love these Hale Bob Amalia Crepe De Chine Pants, $158.00 available at One Brilliant.
Marsala - Full-Bodied Reds are inspiring a whole range of outfits for the fall/winter collections. Pantone color of the year 2015 is Marsala. It enriches our mind, body & soul, exuding confidence and stability. It is a versatile color that speaks of glamour and luxury. Think about adding it to your fall wardrobe this season. We love this Day Lily Dress by Bailey44, $158.00 available at One Brilliant.
The building blocks of your wardrobe and the stars of pre-fall. These are just a few pieces to get you in the mood.
