Looking to restock your shelves after a hectic holiday season? I know we are aaaaall over the cold weather and ready for fresh spring trends, but weather is unpredictable so it’s best to keep your eye out for a few seasonal pieces while you buy for SS18 at January Apparel & Accessories Market.

FW17 seemed to incorporate a combination of 90’s goodness (checkered flannel), 60’s cuteness (galactic-printed dresses), color (silver), fur (both real and faux), and more. Here's what I've been coveting:

  • Pompous Puffers (Puffer coats) – Go big or go home! Opt for a bright color like pink, orange, or cobalt blue.fall winter trends dallas

  • Fab Fur (Multicolored and Vintage-inspired) – Colder temps call for big and bold real or (faux) coats. Speaking of real, hit up your local consignment shop steals on the real deal.
  • Working Girl – Did somebody say pencil skirt? This season, take your office wear outside of the office. Experiment with plaid blazers, fitted skirts, and chiffon tops.
  • All of the (dots) – Spottie Dottie ain’t got nothing on this season’s biggest trend. Opt for subtle or massive, dotted prints.

  • Think Pink – Pink is fair game for this season; and why not opt for that pink faux fur you’ve been eyeing? Or that pink sequined dress.
