(BPT) - As Mother Nature exchanges her green attire for endless hues of yellow, orange and red, you too may be thinking it’s time to spruce up your wardrobe. This fall, the leading trends are blending fashion with comfort to create eye-catching styles that move with ease through all your autumn adventures.
As the leaves turn and the chill sets in, make sure your closet is stocked with the top five fashion finds of the season.
Thin and thick, scarves for everyone
Store your statement necklaces for next season because fall 2016 is prime for scarves of all shapes and sizes. Chunky knits are a classic among both men and women, with infinity scarves bridging the gap between dainty and daring. To add further dimension, skinny scarves are a new addition for this season. Thin scarves of silky material are being layered, wrapped and knotted to create a one-of-a-kind look guaranteed to catch a glance. Long-hair scarves or silk belts are ideal for experimenting with this fresh trend.
A comfortable twist on the skinny jean
When fall arrives women from coast to coast don skinny jeans with boots and booties. Until now, this unforgettable look came at the price of comfort and mobility. Enter the Lee Dream Jean. Designed to look like a skinny jean on the outside while feeling like a yoga pant inside, you can wear these jeans for any fall adventure — whether stretching for the highest apple or lounging with a pumpkin spice latte. The patent-pending Dream Jean wraps you in softness with a t-shirt-like lining, and the stretchy, skinny fit ensures you'll never want to take them off.
Slim-fit jeans for men
For fall 2016, men's jeans are seeing a slimmer cut than in previous seasons, and more men are looking for styles with stretch to achieve this look. The Lee Slim Fit embraces both elements to produce a pant that looks and feels great, whether you're tailgating with friends or picking pumpkins with the family. The slim, tailored style fits closer to the body for a great fall look, while the Active Comfort Denim technology allows the denim to flex and move with ease to keep up with your every move.
Fabulous fall footwear
Beyond boots, fall footwear is getting a sensible yet stylish update for fall 2016. One of the leading shoe trends of the season is the classic mule. Making its comeback, the mule blends the best of a loafer with the ease of a clog. Slip these on with your favorite jeans for a chic look for the office or a weekend get-together. Mules offer the ideal way to polish a casual look and create a beautiful blend of high and low fashion.
Pops of color
As Mother Nature delights the eye with radiant hues across the landscape, you may feel inspired to add pops of color to your fall wardrobe. Just because it's autumn, however, doesn't mean you're limited to just crimson and sienna. Fall is a season alive with life, so integrate your favorite bold colors in any way you can. If you opt for colorful pants to bring life to your outfit, try one of the eleven colors available in Lee’s Essential Chinos, including perfect fall shades like Moss Green and Blush. Pink, in fact, is trending for fall, so rock those pants and pull that raspberry fedora out of storage. It's no longer relegated for spring alone.
Fall 2016 is unlike any other when it comes to fashion. By blending comfort and style, you're sure to find a favorite look to keep up with your every move this season.
