Shades of Grey

The sun is still shining, and the air is filled with an electric anticipation—that’s right, the fall fashion season is upon us. Just around the bend and leading us straight into the hottest new trends, Fall 2013 welcomes some classic perspectives, some new perspectives, and best of all, the returned chance at showcasing our Portland ability to have fun with color, layers, and our own unique twist on what makes the art of fashion so exciting in the first place. Check out some of these exclusive fall previews that hit the runway at the Style in the Pearl fashion show over the summer. Giving us a sneak peek of what’s to come this fall, from green and gray-inspired looks to fresh prints galore, each outfit you see here is straight off the runway to you from a variety of some of our very own local boutiques! Thank you Fall, we missed you!

Shades of Gray

Love your blacks and whites but not sure which to
choose? This fall, you don’t have to. Instead, have fun somewhere in the
middle with your choice of gray. Take a cool crop on a sweater, or
dress with flowing layers and rediscover the simple elegance
of this new staple shade in your wardrobe. Whether layering
up or heading straight for the basics, our Portland boutiques will have
what you need to feel fashionable and stylish this season.

 

 

 

Emerald City

Fresh, elegant, radiant—green is in. Make a bold
statement with green galore, or use it as a fun accent to some of your
favorite, classic looks. Just remember to keep an eye out for ways to
incorporate this hot shade for Fall 2013, which shouldn’t be hard with
Pantone choosing emerald as its color of the year for 2013.
We saw it hit the runway in sweaters, pants, skirts, and dresses,
making your choice of green a sure-fire way to get creative
and stay on trend this fall fashion season.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fall into Prints

From recurring patterns and graphics, to
autumn shapes and colors (notice again the grays and greens!), prints
take on a life of their own this fall, encouraging all of
us to dress up in what they have in store. We saw everything
from animal print sweaters to geometric leggings, making
prints a go-to fashion statement when looking to spice up
any of your basic favorites. Whether it’s a color that
catches your eye, or a design that you just can’t pull away from, take
it all in this season as any excuse to dress up, or down, to your
heart’s desire, in style.
