faux fur


Fashion trends from the past are always popular, and this fall is no exception: Looks from the 60s and 70s are some fall favorites. Following trends is fun, but at times it’s challenge to know where to buy the styles. Many trends are high fashion and catered for a select demographic, so knowing where to buy the styles for prices that aren’t several hundreds or even thousands of dollars is the first step. To buy most of these looks for a reasonable price, you will need to look online. This can be daunting at first, so I have hunted for great trends at great prices.

1. Baby doll dress
Try out a look from the 1960s with the baby doll dress. This short, loose-fitting dress varies in sleeve length, from straps to long-sleeves. It is a simple but cute look that is easy to pair or match with. You can likely get away with this look for a couple more months in warmer areas. If not, you will definitely need to layer this look.

Shop this look:
A solid color baby doll dress can be found at American Apparel. It is currently on sale for $26.00.
A wide array of patterns and styles of the baby doll can be found online at pacsun.com. Prices range from around $50 to $100.

2. Faux Fur
Faux fur is made with synthetic fibers, so no animals are harmed in the wearing of this look. Fake fur adds a touch of chic to every outfit. It is also nice and cozy for those colder autumn days.

3. Tweed Skirt
Fun fact: Tweed is associated with the British countryside and has been a go-to look for hundreds of years. The tweed skirt paired with a solid color knit sweater makes for the perfect sophisticated outfit for almost any occasion. It can be dressed up or down.

4. Shoulderless shirts
Let’s move forward in fashion history from the 60s to the 70s! Shoulderless shirts (also known as cut-out shoulder tops) spice up an everyday look and make it edgier. This is a simple trend that makes you stand out. If you have a shirt that you don’t mind experimenting with, you can even create this look by yourself! There are several YouTube videos that are easy to follow. This is an affordable and fun option!

For fall, you can get away with more layers. It is also necessary to keep warm, so take advantage of that and layer your outfits. This is a simple way to enhance your fall look.
