It’s here. Say it with us, It’s HERE! What, you may ask? Well, fall, of course! The fashion-packed season is upon us (yes, time to start packing those shorts and tiny dresses away) but FC’s new fall collection will make the parting so much sweeter. It’s all about attitude: rock n’ roll with blazing hues with a bit of 70s retro and Studio 54 thrown in. Feeling overwhelmed? Not to worry—we’ve narrowed down the pieces that are to be put right at the top of your list!
Duh, you may say. But they are the cornerstone of any smart fall closet and we’re not just talking about boring Grandma-knit-me-this-moth-ball-central knits. These feature special details and are done in cozy (and anything but scratchy!) fabrics like wool and cotton.
From the most I-want-to-curl-up-in-this pieces, try the Verdi Knitted Jumper that’s just perfect with leggings or the Clara Layered Knit Jumper, which is a romantic take on the classic slouchy knit with a frilly hem for a layered look. Just want a warm piece to layer over? Reach for the Naughty Bright Knitted Cardigan—an easy style done in a mixed-knit for a cool finish.
Now, for the statement pieces. The Brighton Vhari Oversized Jumper, done in a look-at-me cobalt, is anything but ho-hum. Pair with some leather leggings and watch. out. If you want to flaunt a more classic look, the Dogtooth High Neck Jumper, with its timeless pattern and structured fit, is a winner. Feeling like you want to #putatasselonit? Go for the Annabelle Tassel Wool Jumper, done in a wowza cobalt and trimmed with dancing tassel trim.
And then there’s the Harry Tartan Wool Poncho. A piece so unique, we had to place it in its own category. It blends timeless tartan textured panels, exposed zips and fringe for a 70s-meets-punk-meets-the Highlands look that works now or layered over a long-sleeve top for later.
It’s not frantically freezing yet but there is a chill. So better be ready for those cooler autumn nights. Just throw on the Waterfall Blanket Wrap Cardigan for those relaxed evening with friends or the Confetti Grid Sequin Kimono Jacket for a more chic setting. For late October nights, your best bets would the Atomic Zip-Up Coat, with its sleek lines and versatile grey tone or if that’s too pinky-up for you, go for the Chaos Leather Studded Biker Jacket, which is punk. to. the. max. Studs, rivets, buckles—you name it, it’s on it. And there’s the Dogtooth Oversized Coatigan, which is happy marriage between coat and cardigan with a striking dogtooth print.
These go from fall to winter with just the slide of leggings or tights or a slinky turtleneck underneath. Go for brights like Record Ripple Drape Dress, featuring a smashing, colorful print, which works now or with knee-high heeled boots come cooler temps. Feeling a little #rageagainstthemachine? The Castle Check Dress, with its tartan bottom, is half buttoned-up, half punk supreme. And don’t forget the sweater dress! The Flossy Knits Jumper is an easy out-the-door-style that let’s you do Monday mornings with some semblance of panache. For a more boho-chic look, the Soho Boa Pussybow Dress is it—billowy, with a fierce snake print and ladylike tie-neck, it just screams Faye Dunaway-esque levels of cool.
Well, you have your leggings and everyday pants. But why not shake it up with the Hendrix Velvet Jeans? Yes, white and velvet. Because we’re all about breaking some rules this season. Too far for you? The Emma Crepe Wide Leg Trousers keeps in the family of black trousers but is done in a flowing wide leg that is ultra-modern and ultra-chic all at once.
Top off your fall-ready look with the Izzy Messenger Bag, featuring a sizzling snake print, and you’re all set to rule the scene for Women’s Fall Fashion!
