Colder weather means more than just throwing on a sweater and wrapping up in a scarf. Don’t get us wrong, we’re all in for sporting cuddle weather attire on occasion, but us fashionistas are ready to break out in our statement fabrics this fall. From colorful corduroys to velvet, fur, and leather, we’re loving the mix of options to keep us warm and well dressed for the season.


Velvet, rich and regal in its plush splendor is a definite statement fabric that must be worn for the fall season. It’s sultry attitude has us feeling lux and comfortable especially if we’ve got it on our trousers or layered against our favorite basics. If you’ve got a little velvet dress tucked away in your closet, bring that girl out and throw it over your favorite cotton t-shirt.  


Commonly known for its 70’s stigma, corduroy has been able to make its way out of our closets year after year and we’re not complaining. Those faithful bell bottom trousers will serve you well this season worn with your favorite black turtleneck or plain white tee. Try and stray away from the traditional camel color to brighter tones such as lighter blue and plum as well!


Leather- strong, sexy, and structured, has always proven to be a staple fabric to make us feel confident and a little bad ass no matter the occasion. We know that every it girl needs to have a classic moto leather jacket with her to battle the cold winds but what about a leather dress? We’ve seen the leather dress take on a more soft and flowy form this season as sultry slips or off the shoulder midis and… even as a full length gown!


While we’re not ready just yet to break out our luxe furs and mink pelts to wear on the daily, we’ve been spotting some colorful furry accents on our beloved coats that make for an unforgettable statement piece. Whether it’s Fendi’s exaggerated multicolor faux coat or Chloe’s patchwork fur trench, we’re falling for every bold colorful fur.
