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 Montgomery County.
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. But for those work-from-home/running errands days? Cozy matching sets are more popular than ever. (Get extra points by coordinating your mask to your outfit!)

Acid washed denim, head-to-toe red, check overcoats and cardigan coats are this fall’s men’s fashion go-tos. Check out Montco Happening List Winner for Best Men’s Clothing A Weitzenkorns & Sons Inc. in Pottstown for duds that will dazzle.
Sneakers are getting a new look as dress shoes this fall, whether paired with pant suits or a sweater dress. Check out Montco Happening List Winner for Best Shoes Valley Forge Running Company in Collegeville for a good selection of fall footwear.
