Last week I was lucky enough to attend the Fall 2013 preview at Belk, and I am so excited to share the trends that will rule the racks this fall. Arlene Goldstein, VP of Trend Merchandising and Fashion Direction, kicked off the meeting going over some seriously chic trends such as drop waistline dresses, geometric/architectural inspired patterns, as well as ankle boots being the fall go to shoe. Studs, spikes, and jewel embellishments are here to stay and you will see them on anything from boots, jackets, to oversized sweaters. When it comes to jewelry keep your eyes open for beautiful gold tones from rose gold to brass. This fall you will see clothes experimenting with neutrals and pieces that allude sexiness. So get ready; here is the top ten Most Wanted list for Fall!
1. Slim trouser
2. Button up shirts
3. Statement jackets
4. Fashion sweatshirts
5. Patterned sweaters
6. Anything leather or vegan leather
7. New knit dress
8. Satchel handbags
9. Bold jewels

I had such a fabulous time at the Fall Fashion Preview. When it comes to trends, just remember they are great to know, but you can always mix your own personal style to achieve a unique look all your own! Are you most excited about any of the fall fashions you see here? I would love to hear!
As ever, thank you so much for being here.
