Celebrating detail, design and drama, this fall’s trends highlight American women’s desire to mix, blend and create unique looks. The experience begins at Marshalls stores with an ever-changing selection of high-quality styles at incredible prices.
Fall’s hottest fashion styles are in the details. From embroidery and statement sleeves to embellished denim, small touches really make a difference in fashion today. Women seek looks that skew masculine with moto jackets and military bottoms coming to the forefront especially as paired with feminine flourishes such as lace and ruffles. This fall, women are dressing up joggers to elevate stylish comfort with pieces like velvet booties and structured jackets.
Look for top trending colors to include jewel tones, peacock, black and gold as well as bold reds. As temperatures drop, fall fashion will boast a variety of patterns and textured layers in vests, colored denim and leather jackets. According to 79 percent of women surveyed, combining patterns and textures create the most stylish looks this fall.
Seasonally, earth-tone browns and greens with varying textures and tones are in demand while the classic nude and “no makeup” looks remain mainstays. This season, she is blending the classics with increased metallic tones such as subtle touches of copper and platinum.
With temperatures shifting, maintaining skin care is of utmost importance. Sixty-two percent of women claim nature-inspired ingredients will fill their cabinets to ensure glowing skin. Masks top this season’s must-haves, keeping skin hydrated and protected from wind damage and drier climates.
An overwhelming majority of women (72 percent) note they feel like fall has officially arrived when they put out the first pumpkin decoration in their home.
This season, pumpkin décor can match most any interior style. Orange pumpkins work for those who embrace traditional looks (31 percent) whereas rose-gold dipped or mixed-metal pumpkins may work well for those who lean more modern or contemporary (24 percent). Velvet and wooden pumpkins offer an added whimsical touch this season.
Autumnal pops of colors come to life in traditional harvest looks but this season, sage is the most notably on-trend accent color. Bringing richer hues and a modern yet earthy feel to the home, this hue elevates sophisticated fall styles, especially for those who plan to entertain. Casual elegance and comfortable richness are trends set to come to life in living spaces via varied textures, gold accessories, lighter-washed woods and galvanized metals.
