Fall fashion preview: Stand out from the herd this season


First Posted: 9/15/2011

Get ready to snuggle up to fall fashion in cozy knits, plaid details, tribal accents, long skirts and splashes of warm hues.There's something about layers that is inherently bohemian. There's a carefree, artsy vibe associated with mixing textures, fabrics and patterns. The results can swing from gypsy to prepster, but layers are rarely dull.So before we don the heavy winter coats that tend to bathe the fashion landscape in dark wool, it's time to indulge in the liberation of layers.Now's the time to warm up your summer wardrobe with cardigans, capes, scarves, belts and boots. Even the most bland, conservative attire can get a boost from a richly textured knit layer.And don't forget to layer on some jewelry.
