PHOENIX - Today we took a sneak peak at some upcoming fall trends. The Trench, the Jacket and a couple trendy looks for the guys.

The Trench Coat: This is going to be a huge fall staple. The trench will come in a variety of colors, fabrics and lengths. Today, we kept the classic khaki color and styled it two very different ways. This shows how versatile this piece can be. Dress it up or dress it down, during the evening or daytime, the trench keeps you looking trendy wherever you go. A classic Khaki Color trench coat can cost you anywhere from $79-$200, depending on what brand you go with, but at Plato’s Closet you can find a classic trench there for as low as $22.00,like the one we styled our model with today,  from our store made by H&M.

The Jacket/Blazer: Lauren Conrad is one of my favorite trend setters and up and coming designers. She uses classic styles and puts her own twist on them. We looked at the faux leather jacket and the simple black blazer. You will want both these styles to be cropped, our fitted close to your curves. If you choose to use a more loosely fitted jacket, make sure you balance it by wearing pencil cut jeans or slacks. This will keep you from looking like you have no shape. I love these looks because you can turn them from using them at work, to going out in the evening just by changing your shoes , your jewelry and your lipstick color. You can find these pieces at our store starting at $10. Instead of spending  $40-$80 in the mall for one of jackets, you can buy one at Plato’s Closet and add the change of shoes and jewelry to your purchase to complete your look for under $40!

Guys Looks, “The Two Justins”: Now for those of you guys out there who are trying to accomplish some of the trends out there right now, who better to follow than Justin Bieber and Justin Timberlake.  These guys are two of the biggest pop and teen icons out there. Timberlake has his own line of clothing, “William Rast,” and Justin Bieber is influencing guys’ style all over the world. We did two casual looks today and I can tell you that you can leave our store with both of these complete looks for under $75!
