Can you believe it?! Labor Day is just around the corner!
So, get that “wardrobe update” on your “to do” list — it’s time to gear up for the new fashion season.
We’ve made it easy for you by scouting all the trendy, must-have looks to help you get started.
It’s all right here in the latest edition of our weekly fashion-and-beauty update.
Every shade of gray is coming on strong, so if you want to ride the trend, choose menswear pieces with either a dark charcoal or mid-gray background.
Want other ways to add a bit of romance to your wardrobe? Look for multi-layered bead necklaces that tie in the back (or on the side) with a big, soft velvet bow. Or try a pair of lace-up boots.
One or two great pieces of jewelry and a few “folkloric” prints (even in a scarf or tights) will get the mood across. If you love the look, add an embellished handbag and boots as well.
You can always hit up the local Army/Navy store for an authentic navy jacket. Have it tailored to fit and salute the season.
You can update just about everything you own with a few pieces of the season’s glamorous black jewelry and accessories.Judy Gordon is a New York-based style consultant and the “Today” show’s style editor.
