Fall Fashion Trends, Part One

Everyone loves the fall season with pumpkin spice, football, falling leaves and more. One of the most exciting parts of the season is the fashion. It's a transitional time that mixes late summer and winter pieces. Whether you love scarves, boots or jackets you'll find several fall fashion tips below. These trends are especially popular for 2016. Those that love to sew will find that fabric in Portland is gearing up for the season as well. If you need the latest patterns and colors, stop by our fabric stores in Portland.

Fall Fashion Trends for 2016

Thin scarves – For several years now, scarves have been a staple in fall and winter. From blanket scarves to thick infinity ones, you can't go wrong adding this piece to your overall ensemble. However, this year skinny scarves are in. Be sure to check out our fabric stores in Portland for the latest fall patterns so that you can make a gorgeous skinny scarf for your fall wardrobe.

Off the shoulder – While this trend can be a year-round deal, off the shoulder as well as one shoulder blouses and dresses are in. This could be quite easy for you to sew, as long as you have the right materials and pattern to follow.

Chokers - It's no secret that 90’s fashion is back and better than ever! That means the choker is, as well. Instead of wearing a scarf this season try a choker made from your favorite fabric or lace. They sure go great with any outfit you add it to, including full skirts and plaid!

Leather coats - Everyone probably has a leather Moto jacket hanging around in their closet. For the last few seasons these have been huge. Now, consider trying a leather coat, instead. You may even have one from decades ago ready to be worn again.
