As you all know Fall is here and Winter is fast approaching, which means it’s time to make a new fresh fashion statement! This is the season for neutral colors, bubble coats, and most importantly… Layers!! There are a variety of stores, especially in New York, for you to get your new wardrobe for this Fall. H&M, Zara, Uniqlo, Forever 21 and Pacsun are some good stores that I personally shop at. They have clothes for the season with great quality at affordable prices. Yesterday, a few buddies from the Fashion Diary and I went trend shopping around 5th Avenue. Our goal was to bring you guys some possible pickups for your own personal closet. Here are some trendy fall items:
Heavy Bubble Coats
In Uniqlo, we found this thick seamless down bubble coat made with some ultra soft nylon, polyester and spandex. It was quite heavy and definitely warm as you can see my friend Xavier was looking mighty toasty in it. A variety of colors are available but This orange one matched the theme for Fall. There is also a woman version, with a longer length and a fur hood. They both retailed at a whopping $150 but based on my inspection… seems worth it.
Light Bubble Coats
Much like the previous coat, there is also one in a very similar style which is made of ultralight down. Though it’s in the men’s section, the coat is very versatile and could be unisex. I personally own one of these and can vouch that they are very warm for the Fall/Winter despite their thin look. Its available in many colors, such as black, gold, and olive. This jacket retailed at $60 which is VERY worth the price.
Of course Zara was the next stop! I recommend this store for trendy and unique clothing. Check out these black jeans with cargo pockets on the front, a red nylon stripe on the side, and zippers on the bottom. I know it sounds like a lot but surprisingly it came together pretty well. If you like pulling off crazy fresh fits like myself I’d definitely purchase these jeans! They retail for $80 but I guarantee you that you’ll barely see these anywhere else.
Distressed Side Stripe Jeans
Also, at Zara I found some light blue distressed jeans with an odd pattern going down the side. It was a stripe made of denim with lighter stitching around the edges and zig-zags in the middle. I’ve never seen jeans like this and would definitely rock them! Though there are holes in the jeans, I still think it’s bearable for fall. If your knees get cold you could cover them up. Just get some fabric glue and add the fabric of your choice! Like most jeans at Zara the price point is $80 But again worth it if you wanna look different than everybody else.
Once again at Zara, I found a beautiful embroidered sweatshirt. It’s probably one of the dopest I’ve ever seen to date, but takes a master at fashion to pull it off. This piece is Mostly composed of what looks like beast mouths and finished off with wolf, tiger, bear, and eagle heads scattered throughout. The designs of the animals could most closely be compared to that of a traditional style tattoo.The price for this was $80 as well and after trying it on I was sold!
Zip up collared shirts
We decided to take a look in high end stores as well and ended up in Ferragamo . After browsing their wide selection of clothes we stumbled upon some crazy yet simple designs on shirts. Imagine your standard polo collared shirt but instead of buttons they have a zipper. A small Ferragamo logo is featured on the chest area. This zipper idea is becoming popular and is evident in other designer labels work such as Bape and Fendi. Although these pieces are short sleeve, they look and feel warm. I’d hope so with a price point of $300 per shirt! If your ready to drop a bag on some exclusive fall designer fashion than this is the place for you!
Last but certainly not least we headed to the Burberry store on 57th street. There we found a couple of fall essentials that I’d definitely add to my closet! First I looked at a windbreaker from Burberry’s last collection. It has Burberry Graffiti on it with a plaid background. This style is very “in” right now as multiple celebrities have been spotted wearing the trend. The jacket comes in at a retail price of $990! We also viewed some Burberry scarves made of 100% cashmere. A perfect accessory to accompany any fall fit and add some flair! The prices range from $430-$990!
