Fashion lovers are rejoicing the arrival of a new season. If you’re the type that reads every Vogue magazine issue cover to cover, you know that when new things come into style, old things go out!
For Fall 2016 and Winter 2016/2017, designers seem to be taking a turn toward the bold, with deep and rich colors, exciting cuts of fabric, and bold patterns like leopard print and stripes. This is a great season for showing off your personality!
Here are a few more trends we have spotted:
In: Shades of Pink
Pretty shades of pink were all over the runways for the Winter 2016/2017 season. Try a bubble-gum color, or a deep rose, and enjoy some bright hues in colder months!
Out: Skinny Pants
The pendulum keeps swinging between skinny-leg pants and wider cuts, but according to Vogue, this Fall and Winter, you can safely pull on those wide-leg trousers and know that you’re in style.
In: Puffer Jackets
Warmth and practicality meet fashion for Winter 2016/2017. Puffer jackets were another runway hit, which people living in cold climates are sure to appreciate.
Out: Neck-Revealing Styles
Fashion designers are all about the turtleneck silhouette for this season. You can wear one as a standalone piece, or take a cue from the runways and layer these warm shirts under everything from formal dresses to military style jackets.
Again, this is a great choice for keeping warm, while looking sharp and in style.
Set Up Your Closet for Success
What to do if you open up your closet doors to find a lot of out of season items? Fashionistas will enjoy a big shopping trip, but if you do not make room for your new purchases, you’ll find your closet quickly becomes cramped and overwhelming.
Not everyone follows fashion trends. Your unwanted clothing could easily find a happy home in another closet. By donating your out of season items, you can contribute to someone’s life in a meaningful way, while making room for your latest and greatest finds.
Through Pickup Please, you can schedule a free clothing collection right from your door. Sort through your clothes to pick out what stays and what goes, put unwanted items in a box or bag marked ‘VVA Donation Pickup,’ then leave it outside on the scheduled day. Our driver will do the rest.
While you’re working on your closet, consider checking out the rest of your house to see if there is anything else you do not want or need. Pickup Please will collect household items, toy donations, book donations, and more. You might achieve a new look for your entire house for the new season!
