Whether you’re aiming for casual-chic, Saturday night-glam or some happy medium, Jen Rade has translated the trends from runway to realway. “The best way to approach each season is to start with the right foundation. My best piece of advice is to start every day with a great bra, and then build your signature look on top," suggests Rade, who combed the runways, fashion mags & trend reports & distilled everything into a Top 5 list. "Let confidence be your greatest accessory and you'll look as good as you feel!"
Celeb Stylist Jen Rade's Top Five Fall Fashion Must-Haves:
As silhouettes have slimmed down, the waist has come back into the spotlight. Pants, in particular, have returned as a wardrobe staple - especially slouchy menswear versions. Keep it feminine with a form-fitting top for a balanced, chic look that can go straight from the office to dinner. (Rich & Skinny high-waisted pinstripe menswear pant - NeimanMarcus.com)
From long sweaters over dresses to high-neck knits with pencil skirts, knits are back-back-back. Pairing pieces in similar hues keeps the style balanced & cozy, yet sleek. (Sonia Rykiel layered knit tunic-sweaterdress - SoniaRykiel.com)
Keep your shape
Don't get lost under all those layers of knits, sweaters and scarves. A bra that provides shape & support is the one lingerie must-have to accentuate & support your curves. (Hanes All-Over Comfort Bra - Hanes.com)
Hats are a must-have this season, and while many designer hats are over the top, you don’t have to go crazy to incorporate this trend into everyday life. A tweed newsboy cap or wool beret with a detailed brooch will infuse some fun into a daily accessory. (Cable knit beret - UrbanOutfitters.com)
