Isn’t it romantic? A new way to look for fall

The season’s best clothes are soft, feminine and romantic. ‘Today’ style editor Judy Gordon finds the top wardrobe updates.

Trend Tip: Want to go ultra-trendy? Look for a beaded collar that ties at the back of the neck with a big satin, chiffon or velvet bow.

International velvet
Go straight from the international runways to your reality with a new velvet jacket. The hottest look is cropped and sweet — you may find a bit of ruching at the waist or a silk ribbon used as a front tie. Wear it with everything from a simple crewneck sweater to a fancy, frilly blouse to capture this right-now trend.

Trend Tip: If the crop jacket is not for you, a velvet top or tunic is a softer, easier — but equally right — silhouette.

Trend Tip: Ribbon ties also decorate necklaces, bracelets, collars, jackets and blouses — tie one on!

Trend Tip: Don’t wait for the holidays to let your camisoles shine — the trend is to wear them for fall mixed with menswear and wool or cashmere sweaters. Pretty!
