Style to Fall For

A couple of weeks ago, we were invited to attend a fall fashion trends preview with Nancy Klompus, our former fashion columnist and local stylist extraordinaire, at the Calypso boutique in Preston Center. We truly love Calypso now after seeing all the wearable (and by wearable, I mean appropriate clothing for nearly every age, style and shape of woman) and staple pieces they carry (according to Nancy, it's the go-to shop for cardigans!). Three bits of info to pass along to you, our loyal readers:

1) Seamstresses are your friends. If something doesn't fit anymore, or even fit perfectly when purchasing (e.g., due to a short torso in my case), always alter. Altering to fit properly can make just about any ill-fitting piece of clothing one of your "favorites" again.

2) No matter what the current trend, if it doesn't look good on you, don't force it. Feel comfortable in what you wear.

3) Big color for fall? Iron. A darkish metal grey that looks fabulous with nearly everything.

A special thanks to Nancy for the insight into the not-so-future fall fashions!
