Tips and Trends: Fashionable Patterns for Fall 2014


Tips and Trends: Fashionable Patterns Fall 2014

Houndstooth 

This classic fall pattern originated in the Scottish Lowlands, and is now used not only with wool fabrics but also other materials. Houndstooth is a common design for jackets, coats and hats as well as men’s sport coats. This eye-catching print never seems to go out of style, and the classic Houndstooth pattern is just on trend this fall as it was in the 1950’s.

Tweed

Tweed, a closely woven fabric, is soft and flexible, moisture resistant and durable. Originally made for outdoor activities such as shooting and hunting, tweed was a casual fabric for the upper class. Tweed is also associated with numerous famous fictional characters including detective Sherlock Holmes. This fall tweed gets an edgy twist, pared with leather and mismatched patterns. Tweed always looks professional and is the perfect pattern for a dress, jacket or stylish fall clutch.

Designers went mad for plaid this season. Traditionally associated with Scottish kilts, plaid has been worn for centuries. This year, however, plaid is seen on everything from pencil skirts, to pants, to scarves and shoes. Try plaid in a new way this fall, and incorporated it into both your professional and casual fall wardrobe.
