It’s time to say goodbye to bikinis and short-shorts, because “Extra” is highlighting the hottest trends for fall.
Allure Magazine’s editor in chief Linda Wells tells “Extra” that glamour and refinement are the goals for fall.
Topping the must-have list is men’s wear.
Wells explained, “The idea of trousers and a shirt very basic, but the idea is that they're feminized.”
To get the look, go no further than Bloomingdales, where “Extra” found slim pants paired with a silk, flowing blouse.
It’s a crisp, clean and classic look – but a girl can’t live on one look alone!
“Part of the men’s wear trend we're seeing is tiny little jackets,” said Wells. “English school boy jackets trimmed in ribbon – they almost look like some Harry Potter child!”
Pair those tiny jackets with a scarf and narrow pants for a more feminine twist.
But when it comes to fall fabrics, it’s all about patent leather.
“We’re seeing a lot of patent leather, so shine is a really big part of the fall fashion. And patent leather just not on shoes but on coats and trim,” said Wells.
For a fabulous fall face, use eyeliner for a dramatic yet not over-the-top look.
To get the look, stick with basic black or fun colors like teal and sage. Remember to keep your lips neutral.
But Wells has a warning: don’t overdo it!
“You don’t want to have too much overpowering makeup or else you look retro,” she said.
