A change in the weather means a change in the wardrobe. This means more jackets, richer colors, textures and patterns that match the season.

While some items never go out of style, each season brings new fashions that allow people to express creativity through their clothes. This fall, people are seeing a lot of variety for both men and women and diverse styles that anyone can adopt.

The Indianapolis Recorder spoke with three fashion experts to find out what they are excited to see this season. Maybe their favorite fall fashions will inspire you to ditch your old coat and drab wares and opt for more stylish, statement-making clothing!
