Key Fall/Winter Fashion Trends Include Casual Looks For Men And Women

Sportswear has gone highbrow for Fall/Winter 2014/2015. Donning garments that meld fashion and function are the trend. Relaxed, casual clothing like t-shirts, jeans, hoodies, sweat pants and chino pants have made it into the fashion circuit once again. That’s good news for fashionistas who prefer a casual look and a comfortable fit.


Metallic Madness

Gold isn’t just for winter holidays anymore. Don this color in autumn for a trendy vintage kitsch vibe. Ladies can strut in style with metallic and iridescent color crop tops or go with a graphic t-shirt printed with gold foil, gold or silver sequins or metallic glitter printing. For some extra pizzazz, trump it up with some knit tops with rhinestone embellishments or lace trim.

While the skinny jean is still in style, low-slung boyfriend jeans, denim overalls, distressed and destroyed denim and patchwork denim have come back in a big way this season. Switch up your look with some of these styles and rock a new look. Pair it up with a cool graphic t-shirt, and you’ll be styling all season long.

Casual Weekend And Day Looks

Hoodies have been given an upgrade this year. Many designer brands are bringing them back updated with slimmer fits and lots of new details like unusual colors, side zippers and even futuristic Star Wars trims for geeks. Both ladies and gents will rejoice because the sweater with a built-in hood is back in style. Stay hip and warm with fully fur-lined fleece hoodies that are super cozy.

Go ahead and match up that hoodie with a pair of sweat pants, and you’ll be rocking this normcore trend. Guys can lounge in style in men’s fleece sweat pants for a dressed-up street style look. Black, charcoal and coffee are key colors that are versatile and wearable with any outfit. Chino pants still reign for style this autumn. Ideal for both work and play, suit up in fashionable colors like Khaki, Brown and Olive.

Even the ladies can relax in sweat pants and be right in with the fashion crowd this Fall. It’s a cozy staple that has wiggled its way back into the fashion psyche. There are plenty of ways to sport this active-inspired trend without looking like you’ve just rolled out of bed. Gear it up with a matching hoodie, and it’s an outfit for a night out on the town. Now that’s fashion without having to break a sweat.

Graphic t-shirts, upscale hoodies, dress sweat pants, premium jeans and relaxed chino pants are still a part of what’s cool for Fall fashion. Hipsters can stay hip, and those who like casual chic can dress down and relax in style.
