Chico’s: Chico’s opened the show with a display of suede and fringe. This fall brings plenty of both. Chico’s uses these stylishly, and not overly casual.
Francesca’s: Francesca’s brings lots of print, blazers, cowboy boots, colored denims (really big this fall), neon which is popular for all ages, nude shoes that go with anything, and bangles as the latest accessory.
Buckle: Buckle continues to offer hip casual wear that is filled with stylish dark denim, a mix of patterns such as stripes worn with prints, plenty of embellished pockets and belts, and teal denim – one of the most popular denim colors for fall.
Ann Taylor: Full of sophistication and class, Ann Taylor’s classic designs offered plenty of simple black paired with patterns and color. The Ann Taylor fall line works well for work, day time, and evening wear.
Apricot Lane: Apricot Lane has a mix of some dressy, yet fun designs that are great for day or evening wear, including leopard prints. Apricot Lane offers casual fashions as well, and dark denim styles that can be dressed up or dressed down.
Eddie Bauer: Eddie Bauer does not disappoint as it delivers its usual mix of casual, sporty and preppy styles. Plenty of blazers and blouses, paired with jeans and accented with accessories and scarves. Lots of browns, oranges, and bright colors; even an old style button down sweater jacket with fall colored stripes.
Gap: Gap began its fashion lineup with a simple white “boyfriend” shirt paired with classic denim and set off with red accent accessories. Again, there are plenty of blazers that can be worn with jeans, pencil skirts, a sundress, etc. Gap also showcased fashions from the Gap Kids line. Gap Kids offers lots of color including plenty of pink for the girls that is paired up with browns and leopard patterns. Gap Kids also offers a school uniform collection.
Banana Republic: Banana Republic demonstrates great “work” styles so you can feel your best and on top of your game. Professional, yet stylish, slacks dressed up with blouses and blazers; pencil skirts that are great for the work day and versatile enough to be dressed up for the evening; solid print dresses that can be worn with nude leg; and fashionable tailored suits that have a younger feel than a typical suit.
Karen Kane (Parisian): Karen Kane is debuting new prints for fall – stripes, peacock, feather patterns… Karen Kane also carries the same color scheme throughout most of her fall collection. The line showcases plenty of warm fall tones – browns, brick burnt red and orange. And, the Karen Kane fall collection proves that jeggings are still in.
The show finale featured a pink collection in support of La Femme. Each retailer showcased a “hot” pink look. And, just because it’s fall… pink is not out!
Overall, this fall brings plenty of blazers, dark denims, skinny denim, colored denim, neon colors, and embellished pockets.
