A new season brings new style! We asked local boutiques what they’re “falling” for this autumn. Whether you’re ready to pack those sundresses away completely or add small touches to your existing closet, here are a few trend favorites.

“Ladies can choose a cozy flannel overshirt to exude rustic charm and layer it over a silky cami for a feminine touch. The contrast between the softness of the cami and the ruggedness of the overshirt creates a stylish juxtaposition.”
“Vintage denim maxi skirts are a must-have this season. Layer a lace slip underneath to add a delicate detail. Complete the outfit with a tailored jacket for a touch of sophistication.”

“For men, vintage track jackets layered over a graphic tee paired with straight-leg Dickies-style pants, corduroy, or vintage denim offers a casual, everyday look. To elevate the style, interchange a knit sweater vest and/or a trench-style jacket to stay with the layering vibe. Top it off with a baseball cap, a loose tie, or your favorite accessories— carefully curated classic elements and vintage pieces create a one-of-a-kind, retro-inspired outfit.”

“I love all things denim; luckily, there some fun denim trends this season—from colored denim and wide leg denim to cargo jeans, jumpsuits, overalls, and so much more! And with the Barbie movie [that came out] this summer, we'll still be seeing lots of pink!”

“You’ll be seeing hues of red everywhere, as it takes over as ‘the’ color of fall and winter this year. I love this trend since red is such a great color that amplifies any look. Pick one item to wear (red shoes, a red handbag, or a red blazer) or make a statement by wearing a monochromatic look.”

“Modern ’80s fashion is resurfacing this fall with oversized boxy looks (think shoulder pads) and bold, geometric patterns. For a fun and edgy look that’ll make you feel polished and powerful, add a boxy blazer to your outfit; if it has shoulder pads, more power to you.”

Bésame Red 1920


For bold, bright red lips that’ll make you feel (almost!) famous this fall, the long-lasting, iconic offerings from Bésame Cosmetics can’t be beat. Their “Bésame Red 1920” shade with cool undertones looks fab on all skin tones and makes a serious statement while also staying put. $28,

“[Puffer jackets can be] paired with loose denim, a staple solid long sleeve, and Converse, alongside loose curls, and a long, plaid scarf. Simple gold rings, small gold hoops, and—if you want to add more—stacked gold necklaces are a nice addition, too. This is a favorite trend, because it’s comfortable and cute; you can go from running errands to a coffee date with friends, and you’ll still feel like you have a stylish outfit on without trying too hard.”

Edgy & Versatile Intimates

Submitted by Theresa Del Biaggio, Bambolina’s Bra & Lingerie Boutique, 2023 Vine Street, El Dorado Hills, 916-581-6272,


“Go with a look that’s edgy, and let your financial investment on intimate apparel work for you anytime—day or night! Wear a beautiful bra, bustier, or loungewear set with your other everyday staples; and transform those cozy pajamas into sleek and chic clubwear with a swanky pair of heels and the right accessories!”
