Nordstrom's Tips for Fall Fashions
Sophistication reigns in fashion this season; rich gem tones, sleek silhouettes and inventive pairings of color and texture create bold femininity. Here's their list of ten brilliant fall things, available now at Nordstrom and online at Nordstrom.com.

  • A Pop of Plaid Bold colors, soft fabrics and nontraditional weaves add a twist to this classic fall pattern. Look for plaid to show up on sculpted jackets, coats, straight skirts and dresses.

  • Feminine Blouse Delicate lace and bow details add soft touches to this wardrobe staple. Pair with a cropped jacket and tweed trouser or this season's pencil skirt.

  • Pencil Skirt Metallic tweed, brocade and autumn-toned floral prints update this sleek silhouette. Pair with opaque hosiery and a menswear-inspired bootie for a modern take on this retro style.

  • The Trouser Slouchy, wide leg or pencil-thin silhouettes and menswear fabrications compliment the ladylike feminine blouse for an easy wear-to-work look.

  • The Standout Coat Sculpted shapes, retro details, metallics and plaid evolve the traditional fall coat. Texture and shine update the classic trench for a distinctive look.

  • Sheath Dress This season's fitted sheath makes a classic statement in solid black or charcoal, while winter floral patterns or graphic fabric blocking express a bold style. This straight and narrow dress layers perfectly under a short jacket or polished trench and is a counterpoint to A-line styles of seasons past.

  • Short Jacket Boxy cropped jackets in metallic tweed or supple leather pair perfectly over the menswear-inspired trouser and peep-toe bootie.

  • A Soft Satchel This is the perfect piece for injecting standout color into your fall wardrobe. Look for slouchy shapes in autumnal shades of brown, red, purple and yellow.

  • Statement Necklace Enhance your fall wardrobe with a statement-making necklace. This season, styles range from extraordinary estate and jumbled chains to eclectic art deco and mixed stones.

  • The Peep-toe Bootie Menswear details and an open toe update this fall's wardrobe anchor. Pair back to opaque tights and a pencil skirt or the slouchy trouser to complete the look.
