Our Top 15 MUST-HAVES for Fall 2017

By Melrose W. Fisher – Personal Stylist

After being in New York City for both the Carlisle and ETCETERA fall product meetings last month, I can confidently tell you exactly what you MUST-HAVE in your closet as an essential or to update your wardrobe for FALL 2017. We don’t expect everyone to have all 15 of these items, but it’s something to think about when building your wardrobe. You probably already have some of these basic pieces.

These items are “smart pieces” and will always give you more bang for your bucks because they are timeless, classic, and simply just smart buys. These pieces outlast the trends and fads while continuously providing the best cost-per-wear value you’ll ever purchase. Get these pieces in your closet, to give you a wardrobe foundation for everyday chic.

Remember, Carlisle and ETCETERA are collections that are both ON TREND, but NOT TRENDY! This is very important for you to realize. When you see the Carlisle and ETCETERA Fall Collections, you will recognize the current trends in each one of our garments, but what you’ll also notice is how sophisticated, classy, chic, and wearable our clothes are. I know you know what I’m talking about. On trend, but not trendy. For example, see how these models are showing you the TRENDS for this upcoming season?

Trends for Fall 2017TRENDS FOUND HERE: CRUSHED VELVET | BEDTIME PJs | LACE | DENIM
