You don’t need a front row seat at the runway of the New York or Paris Fashion Show to be a fashionista. Here’s what’s trending and where you can find it in Bucks County.
Designers such as Karl Lagerfeld and Chanel last year began incorporating bike shorts and leggings with oversized jackets into their repertoire, fitting for life on Zoom during COVID-19. For days where in-person meetings are a must, pantsuits reign supreme, with boxy jackets and wide-leg, high-waisted, cropped pants in bold patterns combined with a plain t-shirt or turtleneck. If you're going casual, pair high-waisted, cropped jeans with a long, ultra-soft duster. Check out Bucks Happening List Winner for Best Women’s Clothing Smith & Scott Boutique in Doylestown for the latest fall fashion trends.
Acid washed denim, head-to-toe red, check overcoats and cardigan coats are this fall's men's fashion go-tos. Check out Bucks Happening List Winner for Best Men's Clothing Ventresca Ltd. In Doylestown for duds that will dazzle.
Sock-boots, which fit like a glove and go with virtually your entire fall wardrobe, are still going strong. The part boot, part sock means they come in all sorts of fun colors, designs and textures. Check out Bucks Happening List Winner for Best Shoes Sole by 25 South in Newtown for a good selection of fall footwear.
Thick-rimmed geometric frames in bright and translucent colors, vintage large round frames, trendy tortoiseshell, 70s oversized square and thin, lightweight gold rims are a hit this fall. Bucks Happening List Winner for Best Eyewear Steven Robbins Eyewear in Newtown is the go-to spot for any fashion trend (plus you can get an eye exam and upgrade any prescription lenses you may need).

Fresh Face Forward
After a season of time in the sun, your skin might be in need of a little TLC. Bucks Happening List Winner La Chelé Medical Aesthetics has just the thing. Coming into fall, there are a series of facials and treatments such as IPL Photofacial treatments to help fight summer sun damage. And if you've ever considered having a brow treatment, now is definitely the time to do it. After all, they're one of the few visible features when you're wearing that mask! (PS – They also have a brand new gorgeous location in Newtown in addition to their previous location New Hope!)
Artist eyes that incorporate brightly colored eyeliner or eyeshadow, face decals to offset cheekbones; rectangular, iridescent eyeshadow patterns; crystal embellishments topped with bright red lipstick are all being used to make faces standout. Let Bucks Happening List Finalist for Best Makeup Kelsey Marie Artistry in Southampton indulge you in the latest trends.
