POWER RED
From pop-of-color statement pieces to monochromatic head-to-toe looks, red is the official color of Fall 2017. Think bold, brilliant boots, coats, dresses, suits. “Lady in Red” will be ringing in your ears.

AMERICANA
Prepare for Western wear to be all the rage. Loud, bright and brash, these styles aren’t for your average cowboy! Boots, vests, denim and bandana accents are a few ways to dip your toe in the swimming hole.

TRENCH COATS
These nylon coats are practical, comfortable and easy-topack. They’re the perfect transitional piece for ever-changing Northwest fall weather. Oversized pieces and broad shoulders welcome.

VINTAGE-INSPIRED FURS
If you’re a fur lover, this fall is a good time to peek into vintage boutiques or Grandma’s attic. Designers are featuring classic coats that appear to step from catalogs of eras gone by. Faux fur and shearling accents count too.

BIG FLORALS
A continuation of the fun spring and summer trend, largescale floral prints will be everywhere. Look similar to a curtain or upholstery? Then it’s a safe bet for fall. Consider repurposing lighter floral frocks, layering a sleek turtleneck or opaque tights underneath.

METALS
Do you prefer gold or silver? No matter—wear either, as long as it’s shiny. No subtlety here. Iridescence, sparkle and shine. Don a pair of glittery boots and let your inner starlet shine.

VELVET
Suiting up for a fall fundraiser or formal event? Find a soft velvet dress—bonus points for the still-popular mid-length—in a rich jewel tone, and it just may carry you all season.
