Gulf Coast Style :: Fall/Winter Trends to Start Wearing Now


Finally, promises of cooler temps are on the horizon. When it comes to style this season, it can be a challenge because, let’s face it – on the Gulf Coast, “fall” is just beginning and winter lasts about two weeks after the first of the year.  

We’ve partnered with local fashionista Lindsey Mickle, owner of Oh… So Sassy Boutique and Lolly Blossom Designs, for a look into the top 8 perfect must-have items every mama needs to enjoy this season in style! Here are a few staple pieces we recommend.

Statement Piece from a Local Artist

Fashion Tips from Lindsey

As you shop for your wardrobe, some great fall colors to choose this season are navy, olive/hunter green, wine/marsala, rust and golden brown.  Look for textured pieces such as faux fur, velvet and suede to mix with your basics.

Also, don’t be afraid to wear prints in the fall! While at market, camo and leopard prints were everywhere. I realize they have been in trend for a while, but people are still buying them, and leopard print is great even as a neutral. If you’re afraid to wear a bold top, just add some leopard print earrings or a leopard print belt to add something exciting to your outfit.
