Fall 2013 Men’s Most Wanted

14 Aug

Last week I told you about the 10 Most Wanted Fashion Items for Women for Fall 2013 and I don’t want to leave the men out.  So this week I am sharing with you the Most Wanted Fashion Trends for Men for Fall 2013 that I learned when I attended the Belk Preview Fashion event last month where  Belk’s Vice President of Trend Merchandising and Fashion Direction, Arlene Goldstein previewed Fall 2013’s newest looks.  So ladies take note so you can help dress your man in style this season!

Wine List – Elegant shades like Bordeaux and Merlot!  Choose a monochromatic look or just one bold pop of color.


Plaid Shirt – Bold patterns and vibrant hues.  I am liking this preppy look!


Textured Knit Top – A wide range of fall colors.  From crew necks to v-necks.


Corduroy Pant – The finer corduroy pant is in for this fall. Contemporary 5-pocket styles are essential bottoms for your man this season.


Sport Coat – From workplace to weekend.  Just like for the women, this is an essential for fall to complete every wardrobe.  Buy it in velvet, corduroy or suede or in all three!


Fine Gauge Sweater – This is lightweight and easy to wear and is great for layering.  Wear it under the sport coat or on top of a shirt.


Best Vest – The vest has made a comeback and is a great finishing touch for your modern man.  Get them in plaid, herringbone, tweed or solid.


Five-Pocket Pant – This is a great alternative to the denim pant!


English Country Tie – This is man’s best accessory to add to their wardrobe this season. Check these out in traditional patterns.


Desert Boot – I am loving this casual, effortlessly stylish boot.


Now I know you are ready to talk your man into going shopping to update his wardrobe for Fall and he will look great in any of these top 10 Fashion must-haves!

Fall 2013 Women’s Most Wanted

6 Aug

I had the honor of being invited to a trend forecasting session last month at Belk in Charlotte, NC where Belk’s Vice President of Trend Merchandising and Fashion Direction, Arlene Goldstein previewed Fall 2013’s newest looks.  It is always exciting to see what is trending for the new seasons and Belk is so kind to give us this sneak peak and treat us to samples of the latest in cosmetic and skincare products to try as well. (I will be sharing about those in a future blog post.)  For now, I am going to give you a sneak peak into the 10 Most Wanted Women’s Fashion items for Fall 2013.  I hope you will be as excited as I am!

Statement Jacket  -This will again be the season of the jacket.  Make sure to choose one that is going to be flattering to your specific body type.  Also notice the blouse buttoned all the way up with the necklace on the outside – another trend for Fall 2013.


Slim Trouser – The ankle length that has been popular all spring and summer is carrying over to fall.  It is sleek and simple. I love this length!


Fashion Sweatshirt – Adds femininity to a sporty look.  An updated throw back to the 80’s.


Satchel – Of course if you know me you know I LOVE my handbags! I am absolutely loving this Michael Kors style!!


Bold Jewels – A new version of the statement necklace! Look for these bold stones in necklaces, rings and bracelets.


Button Front Shirt – This blouse is very versatile and can be dressed up or dressed down.


Short Boots – Notice the buckle detail on these short boots which will be fun to wear with the ankle length pant mentioned above.  I think you will be seeing a lot of versions of this little short boot to suit any style.


Something Leather – Leather/Faux Leather/Vegan Leather (your choice) will be seen everywhere!  I have already started seeing it in the stores on t-shirts, skirts, pants and like this fit and flare dress below.  Just a touch of leather will keep you on trend!


New Knit Dress – Very popular in this seasons hottest patterns.  Easy wear – Easy care!


Patterned Sweater – Wear this over-sized fun sweater over your skinny pants or skirt!


These are 10 great pieces to build a Fashionable Fall Wardrobe.  I can’t wait to go shopping!!
