Fall isn’t just about cool, crisp evenings, back-to-school and sporting fun ... it’s also about reinventing your wardrobe, too. This season, transitioning your closet is easier than ever with fun trends that give you permission to show off your colorful character and express the many sides of your personality.  

Taking its cue from hot runway styles and favorites from fashion magazines, Monroe and Main is reinventing what’s trendy without being too spendy – and tailoring the fit for women sizes small to 3X. You’ll find surprising style and color combinations in the new fall lineup, like classic brown and trendy teal that look elegant and fresh when combined.

“Teal is an easy transition into the fall color trend because it looks great on all skin tones and pairs well with both light and dark neutrals for a sophisticated look,” says Monroe and Main Style Expert, Sue Thrasher. 

Another great color trend takes its cue from fine vintages. Elegant red tones of cabernet, burgundy and merlot add a touch of class and radiance to your look. Try a pleated, middle-friendly dress with matching wine-colored jewelry for an elegant look that is comfy at the office or snazzy for the evening.  Find more color trends at

Edgier styles are also hitting the fall fashion scene. Baroque-era embellishments are causing a Renaissance among the modern classics you love. Look for bold metallic colors, swirls, chains and sequins to add some “ooh-la-la” to your look. Rich prints and flowing fabrics add a soft and romantic element, while special fit details draw attention to your best assets. From simple embroidery to eye-catching jacquards, “going for Baroque” is one way to look your confident best this fall. Check out a few inspiring examples at

Want to showcase your inner rebel? Sport a rockin’ attitude with a creative mix of street style and chic classics to make a bold statement ... with comfort in mind, too.

Hot colors and unique patterns make it a must-have closet staple, and this pant pairs perfectly with your favorite blouse or sweater. But the look isn’t complete without the right layers: a leather jacket, sparkly accessory or cross-embellished scarf are the perfect finishing touches. Find out how to get the look at
