Clothes & Conversation: Women's Fashion Tips
Stretch Velvet One-Button Blazer
Sold by: Nordstrom

Fit Guide
Why is it a Find? This look encompasses everything fresh and new about this season. The key item is the FRAME’s velvet blazer, a piece that can be worn as conservatively or as fashion forward as you like. In a timeless silhouette like this blazer, this is a must-have fabric of the season that you’ll wear for years. FRAME’s quality is top notch, ensuring it will withstand the test of time.
Wear it with: Paired with an updated cropped pair of non-skinny jeans and strappy block heeled shoes, as shown, you’ve got an outfit that hits some major trends of the season, without seeming “trendy” thanks to the rich colors and simple white button down. The navy velvet also looks great with simple black trousers and a turtleneck for a look that is just right for most offices and every lovely dinner outing from fall straight through the holidays.
Fit Tip: FRAME is a contemporary line, but this blazer isn’t cut too slim, so we suggest going with your normal size. The single button closure hits at just the right spot below the bust line, so even if you have a large chest, this jacket won’t pull. And the hip length gives every lady beautiful proportion.
Alternatives: Anthropologie has a relaxed version in olive green that has less structure. And Elie Tahari has a longer option in an easier, modern fit with a single tab closure that, like the featured jacket, works for every chest size since the closure sits just below the bust line. This one comes in black, too. Velvet blazer not for your lifestyle? Go with J.Crew’s corduroy option for similar rich texture.

The Ladies’ Fall Fashion Report

It’s that time of year again… our Annual Fall Essentials List is here. What’s making the cut this year?

Well, ladies, in terms of fabric, if it comes in plush and touchable velvet, we are pretty much in love. And rich, jeweled toned shades of red and green look as beautifully updated as ever. Perfectly dusty pinks and blues, as well as every shade of amber and brown give the season a fresh feel, and all work well with those neutral grey, taupe, black, and navy pieces we’re always drawn to in the fall and winter. (We’ll go into more depth on color in a few weeks.)

Think romance when it all comes together in brocades and deeply colored floral patterns (and a little animal print never hurts). For a tougher edge, menswear inspirations still take center stage, in plaids, stripes and military details. Athletic wear – especially the track suit - is still a major muse to designers.

Longer fluid skirts and dresses play into that ladylike feel, while higher rises and cropped pant lengths remain important. Have no fear, they all look great with the block heel booties, making them truly wearable silhouettes. Mixing and matching the soft and feminine, with clean-lines and harder edges create that just right vibe for the season.

This week’s Fashion Finds, “Fall’s 20 Must-Have Updates”, showcases the Finds of the season that will round out and update your wardrobe for the season ahead. Let us know what you think through the comments section below and on social media.
