Rochester Fashion Blog: Autumn trends you'll be seeing on the Streets

As the weather begins to transition from hot and humid to breezy and cool, new clothing trends emerge on the streets of downtown Rochester. Layers of clothing will pile up as the cool air moves in and the leaves begin to fall. There are ways to take any outfit suited for colder weather  to the next level; making it fashionable yet functional.

From t-shirts to duffel coats, and every layer in-between, you can add a little texture and pizazz with the upcoming trends for autumn:

Statement Sparkle. Take any outfit and step it up with layers of sparkle. From earrings to bracelets and rings, sparkle and shine will help draw major attention to a simple outfit.

Velvet. A sultry fabric that doesn’t get much credit for it’s unique look and texture. You’ll be seeing it pop up in interesting places: crop tops, flowing skirts, and accents on purses.

Fur. Whether you prefer the faux or real, there will be fur EVERYWHERE. A piece to invest in this season is the fur stole, which will add a vintage, lady-like feel to a modern outfit.

Puffer Coats. Not you typical ski slope coat either. This season’s puffer coats will include interesting cuts, fur trim, and bold colors. Stay warm and stylish as autumn transitions into winter.

Turtlenecks. Layered under a shift dress, paired with a high-waisted skirt, or worn with a fur vest, turtlenecks are the HOT item for the cooler weather.

Style on the Plaza is an excellent event to see how these trends, and many more, can be worn this season. The event will be held on September 17, 2015 in the Peace Plaza. You can buy your tickets on the Rochester Downtown Alliance website. Which trend are you most excited to try?
