Fall into fall fashion with this trendy shade!

By Ashley Polan

The leaves are changing and the temperature dropping which means one thing … fall is here!  It’s time to say goodbye to shorts and sandals and start shopping for sweaters and booties. Fall is the most exciting season in fashion and one color seems to be taking the stage this season — maroon! Anyone can rock this eye-catching color in just about every piece – from cozy sweaters and blouses to scarves and hats.  Match this fierce red shade with black, grey, white, cream, navy, camel, or go bold and rock it head to toe!

Maroon in the desert

Lucky for you, we have a variety of places throughout Reno/Tahoe where you can shop and surely find some killer maroon pieces to fill your closet this season. The Outlets at Legends in Sparks is a great spot to stop and shop for everyone in the family with any budget. For me, Forever 21, Express and Buckle are a must!  I’m loving this maroon plaid top and beanie for a casual, cozy weekend look from Forever 21. And that bomber jacket from Buckle — OBSESSED. The ladies working at Buckle are always so helpful and wonderful to style with! There was no shortage of maroon looks there. When looking for work attire and date night looks, I can guarantee I’ll find what I’m looking for at Express! This dress looks great paired with black booties or black pumps. reddevelopment.com; forever21.com; express.com; buckle.com

Maroon at the lake

Shopping at the lake is always an exciting experience! In South Lake there is no shortage of places to shop. My favorite locations include The Village Center and Heavenly Village. At both these shopping centers you can find an array of gifts, fine art, chic apparel, dining options, and even a little something for your furry friend!  With so many unique shops, you can almost guarantee you won’t run into anyone else rocking a style you picked out. When I hit Heavenly Village I cannot leave without stopping and seeing what What a Girl Wants, Earthbound Trading Co. and Sealed with a Kiss have in store. What a Girls Wants is the perfect stop for woman of every age looking for a cozy sweater and unique accessories that will take your outfit to the next level. For the nomadic spirited woman, Earthbound Trading Co. is your spot! I could spend hours in this store looking through their unique collection of apparel, jewelry, home decor and everything in between.  When I step into Sealed with a Kiss I feel right at home in their fun and playful environment, not to mention all the stylish, well-priced fashion they provide! villagecentertahoe.com; tahoe.com; earthboundtrading.com; shopswak.com

Next up on my shopping spree while visiting South Lake Tahoe is The Village Center. I can’t miss Savvy or Sidestreet Boutique! Savvy is known for their high-quality clothing and if you’re a Free People lover like me, they have the best selection! Last up, I know when I walk into Sidestreet Boutique they’ll have all the latest trends in fashion. No doubt they’ll have an array of trendy maroon apparel for you to choose from this fall! savvylaketahoe.com; sidesteetboutique.com
