Guest Blogger-Alexandra Jacobs

I received a request from an aspiring writer to post a guest blog about one of her passion's which is fashion.  If you are starting to shop for your fall wardrobe here are a couple of great tips.  Thanks Alexandra!


New York’s fashion-lovers are finally trading in the sandals, and eagerly anticipating the arrival of their new fall boots. Whether you are a resident of Manhattan or Brooklyn, fall fashion has so much to offer. As a resident of Brooklyn, NY it is easy to find what types of trends find their way to the fashion-forward mind.

What to Expect from Fall Fashion in Brooklyn
Beacon’s Closet in Park Slope and Buffalo Exchange in Williamsburg allows residents and visitors to keep up with the trends for less. Though Ponchos, trench coats and capes are an absolute necessity in terms of runway fashion, Brooklyn’s fashion mavens are not exactly sold on this trend. In fact, this is not the only trend that is expected to differ from Manhattan’s fall fashion lineup. Here is what to expect from Brooklyn’s clothing shops:

Be Bold
Bold colors that are monotone, bright or contrasting are recommended this year for fall fashion. Separates, such as tights, shoes, skirts, belts and pants, in bold colors are featured in this fall’s line up. Expect DKNY and Derek Lam to follow this trend. Liz Claiborne offers fashion lovers vintage skirts, and bold-colored belts by Betsey Johnson are present in stores also.

Try Navajo Prints
Though this trend is growing in popularity, it requires some patience to find when shopping for it in Brooklyn. The bold print can be flattering to some body types.  A simple t-shirt can cost as little as $8.

Brooklyn Budget
In Brooklyn, fashion-mavens can obtain the runway look for a fraction of the cost. Try some of the vintage stores for discounted prices and exceptional finds. Even on a budget, Brooklyn residents can keep up with the trends.
