Top 3 Trends For Fall 2013

Fall fashion is a favorite of many – we’re certainly all getting quite excited about it here at Free People. To welcome this beautiful season and start it off with some excitement, I asked our fashion director to talk a little bit about three trends that we’re loving for fall 2013.

 1. TartanFlannel around waist

Tartan trend

Tartan-inspired plaid looks incredible this season. We love how we’ve transformed them onto delicate sheer fabrics that we’ve cut into raw dresses and skirts. We also love the look of a textured wool Tartan coat as the perfect topper for the fall season. Tying a flannel around your waist or layering it under your tee is a quick and easy way to get this trend into your style for the season.

 2. Coat Shop

Fall jackets

If you can only buy one item this season, let it be a new coat. We love the look of the longer duster lengths in new patterns and textures, or in a solid exaggerated fit. They transform your mini dress & boot combo into a completely new fall look. On the flip side we have some amazing shrunken smaller shapes that will look fantastic over flowing skirts and dresses or paired back to your perfect denim. It is the one piece that will make the rest of your wardrobe feel fresh.

3. Folk

Folk dress, necklaces

Folk trend

Beautiful folkloric prints, jewelry and embroideries are a must-have for fall. They feel rich in color and textural in nature. We love the look layered up with multiple patterns or singled out as the statement piece for your outfit.

  1. Tartan is always a fall must for me! At school I used to always a carry a flannel and scarf in my bag for the classes that were a little bit colder or my friends and I decided to sit outside for lunch. It always added a comfy edge to any outfit (a little grunge?!)

  2. Really love the tartan inspiration! Does anyone happen to know the name of the skirt worn in the first tartan inspiration picture (the black one) ?
