good morning! let’s get right to the thursday poll… this week we’ve been telling you about some of the trends we love for fall, so i thought i’d ask which of these trends you all are most excited about!
This feels really new for FP, although we’ve always loved our comfy, easy, beachy pieces, we recognized this season that they could be worn in a cooler more edgy way.
How we’ll be wearing it
There’s a street style feeling to this trend, so it’s really about wearing this look with your own attitude and plenty of confidence. The key item is the knit pant, but styled up so they don’t look like everyday joggers. We love them cropped at the knee and worn with a wedged statement shoe or chunky military boot for a fashion twist.
The fabrics are super soft and in muddy heathery colors that feel like the end of summer and have that cozy feel to take you into fall. It’s slouchy and sexy so we are loving the oversized tops and sweaters and anything worn off the shoulder to get this look spot on.
From maxi length and shaggy coats, mesh and boudoir details as outterwear, and fashion’s new sporty mood, these are Free Peoples trends to get to know this Fall. What are they? How to wear them? here’s where to find out…
We want to inspire you before Falls sneaks up upon us
Here’s details from the people behind the scenes:
Why we love it
“We’re all excited about the maxi length and believe it’s gonna be HUGE for A/W 10, whether its dresses, skirts or trousers, It’s our bohemian girl and a very traditional free people trend that we are excited about”
How we’ll be wearing it
“We love it updated into fall with shaggy fur coats and platforms or clogs. It totally reminded us of Penny Lane from the movie Almost Famous. We wanted to update our Boho roots with a bit of rock and roll and so we love this trend to mix in cool graphic tees, beaten up leather and worn in jeans. Like shes been hanging out on a tour bus all summer with the band and is coming home with an eclectic trunk full of clothes she picked up on the way. Jewelry is really strong in here, especially rings on every finger and long pendant necklaces have a 70’s hippy vibe about them that’s always cool”
Stay tuned for two more trends we’re loving right now!
in the time i spend searching the web, i find a lot of really amazing artwork… but every once in a while i stumble upon an artist who really blows me away. this is one of them. i am completely in love with eibatova karina‘s work… not only are the images beautiful and exquisitely detailed, but the messages behind her work make it even more meaningful to me. plus i’m a sucker for pretty much anything that has to do with john lennon…
the last two are from a series called “trees make us feel better.” they really do make me feel happy! view more of her work here.
our stylists have amazing taste (obviously!) so today i asked them to give their top picks for this fall – and they even modeled them for me! first up, our senior stylist:
“i feel really good about wide leg pants and looser styles going into fall. i’d describe it as victorian mixed with 70s on safari! the coat has a victorian silhouette that looks amazing on any body type because it creates a waist. you can wear it so many different ways, too- belted, open like a cardigan, over a maxi, or with wide leg pants. and the colors go with everything! i also love the expedition hat and large bags like this that fit everything you would need in case you do actually go on a safari :)”
“i love the long sleeve lace buttondown tunic- it is so versatile! it’s a great piece for layering so you can keep wearing summery items like a printed mini into fall, and the print shows through the lace which is really cute. just add a cozy cardigan, over-the-knee boots with socks, and a beanie! this leather jacket is AMAZING. it is lined in satin and has a detachable hoodie and has that perfect beaten up quality to it.”
it’s almost that time of year… to wear thermals!! i can’t get enough of our thermals, they are the BEST. i love these four styles so much i can’t decide which one to get for this season. which one do you guys like best?
My sister has moved from England to join me here at Free People and I thought I would do a little office style on her. It’s great when you have a sister who is the same size as you and has a similar style to you too. We can borrow and swap clothes until our hearts are content.
It’s great having her here and its lovely having someone who shares the same visual eye as mine.
when i was in the photo studio last week for our latest how-to style session, i kept finding myself admiring our associate stylist’s hair! she died her ends purple and i think it looks awesome – as a fellow brunette who loves the whole colored hair trend, i’ve often wondered what colors would look good with brown hair and i think purple definitely does! it’s subtle but still catches the eye.
i have a really wierd obsession with woodstock. i wasn’t even alive back then but it pains me to think i wasn’t able to be a part of that experience. our vintage buyer took a trip to bethel, new york, and brought back some photos of the festival site and her friend’s place – i nearly died when i saw them. one day i will get there.
this is duke – he went to woodstock in ’69 and never left! he now gives tours of the festival grounds.
Isabel Lucas rocked out in LA in this adorable little number, there’s something very Annie Hall going on here. I love that she’s added quirky little stripey socks into the mix and that her hair and make up is undone.Cute as a button. I think I might be wearing this look going into Fall.
We’re intrigued by fashion everyday – it stimulates, inspires, and influences everything we do. We’re always looking for the freshest trends and the newest movements in street style and boho fashion, and we constantly fuel our ideas with the best from fashion culture.
