Fall has settled in, and the air has become crisp and cool. It is time to store away our summer wardrobe and bring out the cozy autumn clothes. Just because it is colder does not mean you have to compromise your style! Fall is a great season for fashion. If you are looking to create a fall wardrobe that is entirely custom and your own, the custom fabric print experts at Papilio Prints are here to give you the complete rundown of the best fabrics to use in your autumn wardrobe.
Cotton is extremely versatile in every season. It transforms into different textiles you may not have even realized were cotton! You can go from wearing a cotton t-shirt in the summer to a pair of corduroy pants in the fall. Many people go for a staple light, corduroy jacket for the warmer start of the season. Melange, a combination of two or more colors of cotton weaved in one, is also a popular choice in the fall. Are you familiar with the iconic tan trench coat that has been a wardrobe staple for decades? Many are made out of a cotton blend called gabardine! Cotton is genuinely a fabric that is perfect for every season.
What screams fall more than wool sweaters and plaid flannels? Wool is a prevalent fabric choice to wear during the colder months. A good wool sweater will completely insulate your body heat and keep you nice and warm. A flannel on a cool day will ensure you are not cold is also breathable.
Suede is basically a fall and winter only type of fabric. It is soft, luxurious feeling, and still lightweight enough for the early days of fall. Popular in the 70s, it is still an autumnal favorite in fashion! Whether a cute mini skirt or a long overcoat, suede is a beautiful fall fabric. If you do plan to wear suede, make sure there is no chance of rain in the forecast!
Do not forget that you can keep pieced from your summer wardrobe to pair with pieces of these fabrics! You can pair a suede jacket with a lightweight material shirt. Or pair a cotton trench coat with a breathable dress underneath!
