This year, autumn won me over.
For as long as I can remember I’ve been a loyal fan of summer—my absolute favorite season. But this year October pulled on my heartstrings. The changing leaves and rich colors have inspired me.
I packed away my staple summer fashion pieces, swapping out my shorts and sandals for chunky sweaters, flannels and booties. I pulled on leg warmers and wrapped a scarf around my neck. And I did it all with a smile. For the first time ever, I was grateful for a change in seasons because fall fashion has rocked my socks off.
For those of you who are a little hesitant to try out trends, Shantelle Peterson of Clothes Mentor and Samantha Hayes of Kittsona offer some advice. (Hint: confidence and comfortability are everything.) Niki Larson, the style expert at West Acres Shopping Center, highlighted six hot trends for fall. Capitalize on them before winter steals your joy.
