Our store girls are great at styling looks, so I was really excited to see what they’d come up with for our grunge trend. They did not disappoint!
Kassandra works in our Seattle store – located in the birthplace of grunge at its best, no wonder she rocks the trend so well :)
And lastly, the flannel onesie is (sadly) no longer available, but this look was too good not to share!

Fashion has gone vibrant when it comes to bottoms particulary skinny jeans, we love the rainbow selection and teaming them with simple tees. They brighten up our day. A trend that grew from the fall 2011 runway shows and got everyone hooked.
It adds a new kind of fun to that Rock N’ Roll skinny jeans vibe. Are you the type of girl who would wear bright coloured jeans?

The latest trend we can’t get enough of is Snow Angel. With a new chilliness to the air and less hours of sunshine in the day, we’re brightening our spirits with shades of pink, ivory and icy blue and cozy, comfy textures that warm our souls. Winter doesn’t have to be about black, gray and deep tones, it can be as light and airy as the snow outside :) This trend makes me think of sledding all day, rosy cheeks, icicles and candy canes!
Here are some of our beautiful store girls rocking the snow angel trend.
On the left, the scallop lace tube dress with the amazing casablanca cape and faux fur arm warmers; on the right, the voile and lace slip worn with tights, legwarmers, the kimono cardigan and adorable ear flap beanie.
Our much-loved voile and lace slip in all its pretty colorways.
And our favorite snow angel layering piece, the fp one smocked beaded bandeau!

Fairisle is one of those words that awakens certain senses… it symbolizes chilly weather, playing in the snow and bundling up by a fire to warm your bones, crisp air and red cheeks.
I never knew this, but fairisle is named after a small island in northern Scotland. The traditional knitting technique uses multiple colors to create the signature fairisle patterns, and first gained popularity when worn by the Prince of Wales in the early 1920s. Today its one of our favorite patterns for knitwear and we love it in all different forms – sweaters, leggings, socks, bags, you name it – it adds pattern, color and a touch of coziness to a basic outfit.
Here’s how some of us are rocking fairisle in the Free People office!
We love this cropped pullover to pieces! It’s the perfect sweater to throw on over a tank and jeans all fall and winter long.
I had to get a close-up of these amazing studded ankle boots too!
We’re dying over the new colors in the Pocono sweater leggings – These have snow day written all over them :)
Add some color to your outfit with a fairisle bag like the Peruvian ski satchel!
Lastly, this fairisle tunic is amazing! Just throw it on over some tights and boots, and you’re set!
Are you guys into the Fairisle Trend?
We have a serious crush on velvet. It’s one of our favorite fabrics for fall – both cozy and chic, it adds a rich element of texture to your look. We can’t get enough, whether it is in the form of a menswear style blazer, wideleg pants or cute shorts. Here are some of our Free People store girls showing how they’d style velvet!
In this look: Velvet Wideleg Pant, Boxy Crochet Sweater (coming soon).
You all look amazing! Thanks ladies!
In this look: This vintage 1970’s maxi dress is the gem of my closet! I love wearing it in fall/winter and styling it in different ways depending on the occasion. Here I decided to dress it down a bit for a more casual fall look so I added a Free People vest, a stack of bangles and a floppy hat. The shoes and sunnies are vintage.
What trend are you most excited about for fall?
I am so into jewel colors right now like amber, sapphire and emerald. Also I can’t leave my house this fall without a hat – I love both fedoras and floppy hats and I don’t think I could have too many.
Favorite designers right now?
I always follow the shows but find myself more inspired by the archives. Like 1970’s YSL and Halston. But I have to say I adore Dries van Noten and Etro’s latest collections.
Your must have Free People item for fall?
I’m dying to get my hands on the Velvet Extreme Flares in the “moss” color! It’s the perfect piece for fall and I’ll wear them in the daytime with a thermal and oxfords and at nighttime with a sheer blouse and high heels.
What is your favorite fall activity?
I can’t imagine anything better than getting up really early a sunny fall morning and heading out to a big flea market. I love to wander around with a hot tea looking through the stalls and finding those treasures for my house I know are out there.

I think her style is very 70s boho, don’t you?!
Monochromatic dressing is one of our favorite fall fashion trends – we love the idea of outfitting from head-to-toe in shades of color that amplify a certain mood or feeling. Jemma and Naomi worked with our senior photographer to capture some monochromatic street style right here at the navy yard! Here’s how we would wear this trend:
shop all seafoam and emerald shades of color.
shop all mustard and camel shades of color.
shop all blush and rust shades of color.
Items coming soon.
shop all shades of color.
Which look is your favorite?
After the light and dreamy summer fabrics in pastels and muted shades, the colors of fall always seem so rich and bold. This year is certainly no exception, but we’re taking it a step further: make a fashion statement this fall by stepping out in head-to-toe emerald, mustard, maroon, cerulean, or whatever color you are feeling that day. Wearing one color from head to toe is daring – chances are you will be noticed as you walk down the street, but when it’s done well it’s perfectly chic and fashionable. Break up a monochromatic ensemble with a little dash of black or beige to lessen the dramatic look or go all out and make that fashion statement. Here’s a look at some of our favorite shades of color to wear from head-to-toe this fall!
shop seafoam and emerald shades of color.
shop mustard and camel shades of color.
shop blush and rust shades of color.
shop all shades of color.
Stay tuned for a post showing how we’d wear monochromatic outfits this fall – and tell us, what do you think of this trend? Would you wear it?
