Fall fashions are in full swing so let’s check in with Sara, Chief Style Officer of the popular online boutique – FlairWalk.
What’s hot for fall 2011? Coats. “Coats have been really strong this season with use of colors and different patterns and textures of fabric,” says Sara. francis is showing bright colors like red and yellow. Beth Bowley is going for a little ooh la la with a Jacquard black lace coat while also offering a classic tweed style. Trina Turk is going retro with her jet setting Pam-Am coat.
According to Sara, many of these coats are stand alone pieces that are not just about warmth but also add a lot of pizzaz to any outfit.
Dresses are big this season with 60s motifs such as block colors and elbow length sleeves. Trina Turk, francis, and Corey Lynn Calter are all showing 60s-inspired dresses.
Handbags are still a seasonal must-buy. Just like in the 60s, women are now changing their handbags to coordinate with their outfits. Popular lines are Desigual and Desigual Lacroix.
A new designer for FlairWalk this fall is Yoana Baraschi. Sara is excited by the cosmopolitan feel to this line. “The Yoana Baraschi look is very New York to me,” explains Sara. The slim silhouettes and simple lines say easy city-chic.
