A Day At The Orchard
Nothing says fall quite like apple picking – from tree-ripened Granny Smiths and McIntosh's to the taste of fresh-milled cider, there are few things that bring autumn to mind like a day at the orchard. Picking out the perfect ensemble is just as easy as (apple) pie – choose classic layering pieces such as a denim jacket and skinny jeggings for a casual yet stylish vibe. Pull it all together with a statement necklace or colorful scarf and cool accessories for a breezy weekend look that’s sure to turn some heads!
On-Trend Tip: Participating in fall festivities is lots of fun, no doubt – but it’s important to dress appropriately for the day’s events! Keep your tootsies comfortable and coordinate your outfit with this fall’s latest shoes and slip-on styles. These adorable gray sneakers are a great neutral shade that go with just about everything in your wardrobe, while allowing you to walk with ease on nearly any terrain.
Whether it’s a rollicking hayride with the kiddies, a corn maze with your sweetie, bobbing for apples at the carnival or local goodies from the farmer’s market, harvest festivals feature the bounty of Mother Nature in all of her autumnal glory. Put your best foot forward in chic but comfy footwear, such as booties or slip-on sneakers. With the temperatures dropping, it’s always wise to have something to cozy up to – consider a sweater top with 3/4 length sleeves for a look that’s both practical and flattering!

From jack-o’-lanterns to creating Thanksgiving centerpieces, pumpkins are yet another seasonal reminder that the holidays are just around the corner.

So go ahead, share your favorite pumpkin patch pics – there’s no better way to be selfie-ready than in cute Fall 2018 Fashion Colors! Looking great in your profile pic’s a cinch in these fall fashion trends – pair a funky cardigan with distressed jeans and a long-sleeved tee for instant sophistication.
On-Trend Tip:This season’s plus size jeans &jeggings for women go way beyond basic blue – get on the fashion bandwagon and opt for fall’s earthy palette in olive, tan, and even burgundy, and put some pizzazz into your wardrobe. Besides the added flair, stretchy jeggings are a super-comfy alternative to jeans and perfect for active weekends!

Whether you’re attending a corporate event or a shindig at a friend’s house, Halloween can be just as fun for adults as it is for kids! Even if you don’t feel like wearing a full costume, you can still get into the spirit of things with this Homemade Halloween Costume idea – just add a decorative pin, a festive scarf, a splash of orange or even some cute cat ears and transform your outfit in a snap! One of this season’s hottest on-trend looks for fall includes the jumpsuit – we love this versatile black jumpsuit, as it’s the perfect wardrobe staple to dress up or down. You can easily go from the Halloween office party to karaoke with coworkers – an absolute must-have in every woman’s closet this season.
On-Trend Tip: If you plan on attending numerous events during the Halloween season, carrying a cross-body handbag can keep all of your essentials within easy reach – without lugging around a heavy pocketbook. Opt for a darker color when possible, as it will most likely coordinate with all of your autumn ensembles. Be sure to have the essentials on hand, such as hand sanitizer (often overlooked but super useful), gum/breath mints (always a life-saver at parties) and of course, whatever make-up or cosmetics you happen to be wearing – particularly if you’re donning a costume! (Bonus points: safety pins in the purse are a gal’s best friend during Halloween season.)
Although they may be intended for teens, visiting a haunted house can be fun at any age! Why not make a fashion statement during your next spooky adventure in this season’s latest look?

On-Trend Tip: Tying your evening look together is simple with the right accessories – we love this tassel necklace, featuring autumnal-hued beadwork on a black metal chain. Whether you’re wearing jeans & a tee or a baby doll dress, it’s the perfect way to add some glamour to your outfit (without breaking the bank)!
As nature’s greens turn to gold, there are few sights more breathtaking than the changing leaves of autumn. When you’re getting ready to enjoy the splendors of fall foliage, why not show off your own true colors with a vibrant printed dress as a weekend outfit? Taking cues from Mother Nature’s palette, we love the ‘Caught Me Thinking’ floral maxi dress – perfect for fall weddings in the country! For more laid-back adventures, our ‘Worth The Journey’ ruffle dress truly lives up to its namesake.
On-Trend Tip: A little goes a long way – carry beauty products that can do double (and even triple) duty when you’re on the go. Items such as 2-in-1 shampoo &conditioner, blush sticks that double as eyeshadow/lipstick, and hair serums that can be used on the skin as a moisturizer are great cosmetic go-to’s when traveling, as they lighten your load – and make getting ready (and looking hot) a breeze!

On-Trend Tip: Smart divas always have sunglasses handy! Simply put, carrying a pair of chic shades is a must-have in every proper fashionista’s handbag. This season, opt for oversized black frames that flatter your face shape, colored lenses to add a bit of mystery, the ever-popular cat’s eye style for the retro set, and of course, the timeless aviator look for those who like it a little edgier. You just never know when you’ll need your sunglasses – trust us now; you’ll thank us later.
Ahh, behold – beautiful fall foliage in all of its glory is a gardener’s delight! However, just because you’re knee-deep in potting soil doesn’t mean you can’t look cute planting your chrysanthemums – check out our collection of ankle-length leggings, available in a variety of colors (and stretchy enough to landscape in comfort). Coordinate your outdoorsy look with seasonal favorites – our ‘Need It More’ ribbed sweater in mustard effortlessly completes your fall ensemble.
On-Trend Tip: It may seem obvious, but one of our best beauty accessories is a great complexion and luscious locks – even though the temps are dropping and the sun may not seem as bright, be sure to wear sunscreen if you’re spending prolonged time outdoors. Keep your hands well-moisturized and protect them against the elements with fashionable gloves as the weather gets colder. Wearing a stylish scarf during gardening will not only keep fly-aways at bay, but protect your unruly mane from the elements – spritz a bit of leave-in conditioner on split ends, and tie up in a bun or loose ponytail for a thirst-quenching treat for your hair. Lastly, keep your pucker kissable with a quality lip balm or salve; stash in your purse for touch-ups and use as a cuticle smoother in a pinch. After all, divas ‘in the know’ know it’s all in the details!
Whether in the comfort of your own backyard or in the great outdoors, bonfires are one of the simple pleasures of fall. However, you don’t have to skimp on style while warming your hands around the firepit – pair a cozy black mock turtleneck and on-trend leggings in burgundy for a look your girlfriends will envy at your next fireside gathering! Roasting s’mores under the stars never looked so cute in our ‘Can’t Look Away’ shrug in black – the ideal layering piece for casual or dressy outfits, you’ll cherish this adorable cover-up year-round!
Wrap-Up: Fashion Sense
As we’ve covered, one of the main attractions of autumn is enjoying the natural beauty of the great outdoors. For Perfectly Priscilla customers, dressing for fashion and comfort isn’t just a fad – it’s a lifestyle. However, whenever you’re going to be spending an extended time outside, there are simple rules of thumb to keep in mind to ensure your basic safety, especially if you’re traveling with pets or small children. It may seem like an obvious one, but be sure to charge your phone well in advance before leaving the house on days where you’re hiking or plan on being outdoors for prolonged periods of time. If you want to travel light (yet smart), keep your fancy purse at home and bring a sturdy backpack instead to carry the essentials, including bottled water, a flashlight, a portable charger for any mobile devices, an umbrella, a blanket (ideal for the beach or campfires), and of course, your favorite sweater or hoodie – after all, being prepared is always in style!
