Layers, Neutral Colors and Old Trends Are All Primed For Fall Season Comebacks.
With the kiddos heading back to school, the first signs of summer's impending end are now officially falling into place. And even though we're not quite ready to say goodbye to soft and sheer materials, skater shirts, jogger-styled graphic pants, and just all of the fringe and floral that so dominated the season, we're happy to say sayonara to summer and give a warm welcome to fall just the same.
Because, while some of these trends — like sheer materials and soft colors, namely — will likely carryover through to the fall, it's time to add some newer pieces into the wardrobe, too. More so than just the promise of cooler weather, we're excited to obsessively begin adding layers to outfits that, in some cases, don't even really need them.
With that in mind, we asked the teams behind a handful of Dallas boutiques to give us some insight into what trends will begin falling into place over the next few weeks on the Dallas streets. And, thus, we present Central Track's fall 2014 look book — for, well, your looking purposes and so as to better guide you in the fashionable senses while ensuring your dapper peculiarities.

Trend Forecast: “Nude color will be very big, and very pastel colors as well,” says sales associate Candy Luna. “You'll see a lot of long sweaters and booties. I plan to wear a lot of dresses this fall! Stockings and knee-high socks with boots will be my favorite. And I'll probably throw on a thin sweater or cardigan.”
405 North Bishop Avenue.
Trend Forecast: “More warm, earthy tones,” says manager Allison Shepherd. “A lot of stockings, leggings, dresses. Combat boots are going to be huge again! The Aztec Urban is going to come back for sure.”

Trend Forceast: “I would expect to see metallics,” says sales associate Jasmine Thompson. “Crop tops are still going to be a big thing. Oh, and bold jewelry! Statement pieces are a never-ending trend that always help set off a great outfit.”

Trend Forecast: “I expect to see a lot of beige and neutral colors,” says sales associate Desire Trejo. “Comfort will be an important aspect, but there will still be an emphasis on going-out style — dressing out instead of dressing up. Expect oversized sweaters, Aztec patterns and paisleys.”
1511 Commerce Street.
Trend Forecast: “A lot of pastels and a lot of newly introduced colors, like periwinkle blue, light pink and mint,” says public relations manager Amanda Reed. “We'll definitely see a lot of '90s trends coming back, like flat-form sneakers, neo-creme and fringe. We'll also see a lot of mixing colors.”
