DALLAS, Aug 7, 2014/ — A visit at Nordstrom in Northpark revealed that for Fall 2014, the luxury retailer is all about luxurious jewel tones and fancy textures for evening, while oversized coats and cozy classics are daytime staples – with chunky sweaters and heritage-style jackets thrown in for the weekends.
Combined, the season’s biggest trends mean the forecast for fall is both comfortable and cool – while still keeping you warm.
Keep Cozy – Staying comfortable as the weather turns means picking pieces with style and utility – think oversized coats, chunky scarves, midi skirts and wide-leg pants that prove practical dressing can look cool and keep you warm.
When the chill starts setting in, take the volume up a notch. An oversized peacoat, chunky sweater, and a thermal scarf add some menswear-inspired bulk, so keep things balanced with a midi-length skirt – it keeps your legs covered when the temperature plummets and looks fresh all through fall.

If the weather is more amicable, swap things around with a lighter jacket and more daring separates. Try a periwinkle quilted puffer jacket in a tomboy-style bomber shape over a floaty pastel top. On the bottom, add the versatility of pants – a gaucho-style pair sticks to the same silhouette.

A comfy look calls for a comfy bag, and nothing fits the bill better than a slouchy hobo. Try one in a soft dove gray for a wintry look that goes with everything. Marc by Marc Jacobs Tread Lightly Hobo, $498 (Available at Nordstrom)
