Off-Price Shopping and Fall Fashion Tips This Fall with TJ Maxx
Marshalls and T.J.Maxx have this upcoming fall’s must-have designer styles at 60% less than department and specialty stores. Here are some of the trends and how we are able to offer them at such amazing prices.
Here they share the Must-Have Pieces and Trends for Fall 2010:
– Bigger is better when it comes to sweaters this fall; look for chunky, loose knits in slouchy styles and ones with interesting details
– Try cowl necks, sweater vests, cascade cardigans and longer cardigan coats…the list is endless
– Textured, fringed and loopy looks are also popular options
– For a look that can take you from day to night try a sweater dress with a unique neckline or sleeve
– Look for faux-fur and real fur handbags – if you’re not ready for an all-over option pick up a bag with fur trim
– Fold-over, cross-body styles with metallic trims are the newest must-have bag options for fall
– For a different look, try soft, slouchy hobo styles and satchels with optional shoulder straps
– Pick a bag in fall’s hottest colors: reds, greens, blues, grays and taupes
– Don’t forget the details: look for croc embossing, snake prints and shiny material
– Keep warm with a wool coat this fall in plaids or solids
– Add edge to a leather jacket with zipper, ruffle and grommet detailing
– Try a cocoon frame jacket for a free-flowing style
– It’s all in the details, look for coats with leather trim, unique buttons or cut outs
– Ankle boots are the must-have shoe for fall
– Use your footwear to add a pop of color to any look: try reds, greens or blues
– Look for platforms with lace-up or zipper detailing
– The slouchy, leather boot is the casual footwear
Polished Career Style
– Feminine blouses with delicate details, longer tunic lengths, cowls and uneven hemlines are in
– Skirts are back, and styles range everywhere from pencil to tiered and wraps
– Slim leg pants are a must-have for fall, grab a pair that can go from work day to weekend
– A tailored jacket with structured shoulders is a nod to the season’s must-have military-inspired look option
– Oversized necklaces, bracelets and rings continue for fall
– Add a touch of fall’s must-have colors with darker stones such as browns and lapis
– Opt for darker metals for an edgy look
It’s All in the Details
– Pick up items in fall’s top patterns like Fair Isle, soft plaids, stripes and animal prints
– Give your look a feminine edge with studs, grommets, lace, ruffles and rosettes on tops, shoes or accessories
– Create a unique look by incorporating pieces with military influence, leather touches, faux fur trims or asymmetrical closures
Knit Scarves and Hats
– Keep cozy this fall with hats and scarves in a mix of textures, colors and fabrics; try a loose yarn or mohair option
– Hats are a must-have this fall: try fedoras and berets with detail
– Layer up with a wrapped scarf this year – all styles, shapes and lengths will help keep you warm, but the infinity scarf continues as the must-have item
– Look for fur trim, studs, gems, chains, bows and rosettes on hats, gloves and, even, scarves
