4 Essential Pieces To Get on Trend for Fall

Do you ever fantasize about having your very own fashion genie who would fill your closet each season with the newest, cutest looks and latest trends?

The reality is that most of us live on a budget, not in a fantasy world. But we still want to look chic and current. So how to get on-trend for fall without spending some serious bank? And, of course, the new purchases need to work with what’s already in the closet.

No problem, says Geoffrey Henning, leader of women’s design and fashion at JCPenney. With just four pieces, you can bring the newest fall trends into your look, while staying true to your personal style. Here are Geoffrey’s top picks for fall fashion:

If Your Style Is Classic:

faux fur vests, hats, faux leather jackets
Faux fur’s a favorite this fall. Pair a fur vest with flared jeans or throw on a fur-trimmed jacket for instant chic appeal.

Flared Pants—This season’s newest silhouette goes anywhere, with anything. Pair your flares with a blouse, turtleneck or a crisp white shirt. And they balance beautifully against a blazer. A chunky heel or great platform shoe keeps them grounded.

Boho Blouse—Soft and feminine, a boho blouse is so easy to dress up or down. It’s on-point professional with a pencil skirt, or wear it with cute jeans for weekend brunch.

Turtleneck—A ribbed turtleneck adds effortless confidence to any style. It’s a sharp look under a blazer, or wear it under a boho blouse for an even more fashion-forward style.

Faux Fur—Have fun with a faux fur vest or jacket, or strut your look in a fur-trimmed pea coat. Even a touch of fur—a cuff or hemline trim—will make your style runway-ready.


If Your Style Is Modern:

sleeveless blouse, leggings, shawl cardigans & plaid tops
Throw in some texture to turn up the style. Suede leggings are fun, while fringe adds eye-catching movement.

Flared Jeans—Definitely the it-look for denim this season. Flared jeans flatter all sizes and shapes—they make your legs look like they go on for miles!

Boho Tunic—Do you love being festi-fabulous? A boho tunic in a dark grounded vintage floral is sure to rock any look.

Fringed or Boot Leather Skirt—It’s all about unexpected moments. Sure, a black pencil skirt is a timeless classic, but a fringed or boot leather skirt will make you instantly unforgettable.

Suede Leggings—Such a soft way to look sensational! Go girly, and wear suede leggings with a diaphanous boho blouse, or pair them with a plaid tunic for a cool boyfriend vibe.
