Far Out


ooking for a fresh 2022 fall look?

Time travel back to the 1970s!

Ultra high-waisted jeans, corduroy and clogs are all having a moment. The earth tones that epitomized the ’70s, accompanied by rich jewel tones and shades of purple, are dominating runways.

Look for oversized blazers and two-piece sets this season - iconic looks from the “Me Decade.” In addition to the high-waisted rage, wide legs and cropped boot cuts will drive the pants’ scene, said Katy Nagel of Gray Boutique in Palafox Place. In essence, “bold colors and prints with a fall twist and vintage vibe.”

In footwear news, clogs will be joined by tire tread boots and booties. And our love affair with sneakers is still going strong.

Meanwhile strong chunky jewelry seems to be edging out the dainty, delicate pieces for a bigger, bolder statement look.
