Although the temps are in the 80's and 90's the mood here at Garden of the Gods Club is all Fall because we're focusing in on fall fashions.
Colorado Springs boutique Kirk & Hill has put on a two-day event showing ladies the latest, greatest trends.
If you're into the 70's look you're in luck. High waisted, wide-legged trousers are big... paired with punchy bold colors. The one hue you'll see a lot of... purple.
Jackie Gunn, owner of Kirk & Hill says, "There are tons of every shade of plum, bordeaux, raspberry, lots and lots and lots of jewel tone."
Jackie says you'll see all lengths for Fall 2011... the mini paired with tights, knee length skirts as well as maxis.
She says, "A-line, a little flutter hemline, there are pencil skirts as well as the new interest is to have a little flare at the bottom."
Stand up collars are also big whether you're talking jackets or blouses.
Jackie explains, "They put the wires in, you can turn the collar up and it really frames the face nicely."
Boots and shoes are also a big detail to coordinate with the outfit.
Other standouts... the trenchcoat, bold jackets, and an alternative to the pantsuit -- day dresses.
Other elements you'll notice... wide or skinny belts cinched at the waist, the old standby, animal print and the #1 item of the season, faux or real fur.
Jackie says everything here retails for under $200 with a focus on every woman finding what works for her.
She says, "Know your body type, enjoy your body type and go out there and find something that looks flattering on you."
Gold is back. Big, bold gold in cuffs, bangles, you name it. It's all statement jewelry. So come Fall, come fun.
