City Pulse

By Jasmine Williams

Fashion’s Fall season is finally emerging in the city. Since the first day of autumn fashionistas have been stumped about what to wear. The weather has us switching from a cute, summery dress one day to a winter coat and boots the next. It’s time to take the plunge into Fall and BN is here to help with our favorite trends that will have you looking fabulous for the rest of this season.

Boots have always been a key piece of footwear when the weather turns and now there are two types to choose from. First there’s the over the knee boot, which graced the Fall 2009 runways. Look chic for a night out by pairing the boots with a mini dress. Find this daring style in leather or suede. For a boot that will take you from day to night, try a peep toe bootie. The versatile boot can be paired with everything from skinny jeans to a dress or skirt.

Sequins have always been a fun way to add sparkle to your evening look but can now be worn in the daytime too, taking you from the office to a cocktail party in a snap. A word to the wise: be aware of keeping the outfit balanced. Your sequined piece should be the focus of the outfit, pair your sequin blazer or skirt with solid colors such as white, black or grey and keep your accessories to a minimum.

Plaid is making a very big comeback this year, compared to its flannel-hipster-reincarnation. You can find it everywhere, on almost everyone, including your favorite fashion forward celebrities. Pair your plaid dresses with a fitted blazer and pair of booties. Plaid should be worn with solid colors to accentuate the pattern and can be worn casually with a pair of jeans or as a layer over a solid dress.

A cardigan is not only for working women, Upper East Siders or your grandmother anymore. This wardrobe staple is now available in various styles and colors. Try a boyfriend cardigan (no significant other required!) to keep your look casual or add a belt to accentuate the style and dress it up a bit. Try another take on the traditional cardigan with embellishments. These include large buttons, beading and patterns, turning your simple cardigan into a statement piece.
