Fall is finally in the air — that means it’s time to shop, shop, shop to dress the part!
Check out our fashion gallery, including photos you haven’t seen in Cary Magazine, for your guide to the season’s newest fashions.
So what’s on the fall fashion menu? Sophisticated looks touting polished jackets, bold statement colors, and textural patterns.
You can lay the foundation for globally-inspired style by mixing tribal and ethnic motifs … or blend vivid graphic shapes with contrasting silhouettes.

Cary Magazine also reached out to Arlene Goldstein, vice president of fashion direction at Belk, for her top 10 must-have wardrobe additions for fall. Take a look:
1. Slim trouser.
Fall’s favorite pant. is sleek, simple and easy to wear.
2. Button front shirt.
Paired with denim or a pencil skirt, this versatile top offers a first class ticket to tailored elegance.
3. Statement jacket.
The “go to” item to upgrade any look, from fitted blazer to boxy crop, military to motocross.
4. Fashion sweatshirt.
The humble sweater gets a high fashion makeover!
5. Patterned sweater.
From spots and stripes to abstract florals and animal imagery, knit is it.
6. Something leather.
Choose pleather or the real thing, go romantic or edgy; either way, skins are a fall must have.
7. New knit dress.
Wearable, packable and fashionable, in modern shapes and sophisticated patterns.
8. Bold jewels.
Statement pieces that pack a punch – rings, necks and a bevy of bracelets, brilliant stones and bold proportions, ritzy yet relevant.
Fashion meets function with precise lines and craftsmanship. The season’s No. 1 handbag silhouette.
10. Short boots.
Dare to wear them with everything from slim pants and skinny jeans to sleek sheaths and snazzy skirts.
