Leather is something you need this fall and winter. It is fashionable and sleek! I think a leather jacket is the perfect layering piece. Try some leather pants or a leather jacket with a casual or dressy outfit and fall in love with leather!

Here I paired a leather jacket and black booties, it’s the perfect everyday look for this season!

Velvet is another must-have this season. You may think that it’s daring or “I don’t think I can pull that off..” BUT don’t let that stop you. It looks amazing in jackets, shirts, jeans and dresses. Here are a few examples of how you can style velvet this fall!

Camo is a big upcoming trend that is perfect for fall. It looks great on a jacket, jeans, leggings, shirts, pretty much everything! I think that it creates the perfect fall outfit, maybe even puts you out of your comfort zone.

Metallic is a new and fun trend this year. It looks elegant without even trying!Take this little pink dress for example, throw this on with a cardigan and white sneakers and you look on-trend but oh so comfortable!

Hello Lauryn + Fall Trends!

Hi everyone! My name is Lauryn Green and I am interning for Ecco this year. I am 17 and a senior attending Harwood Union High School. I came to Ecco as an intern looking for more experience in marketing and fashion which are my passions and what I hope to do during or after college. I also came here hoping to solidify the idea that I would like to do this as a career one day.  Interning here has been amazing and I can only hope to continue learning and growing!

As a way of introducing myself I thought I would share my favorite fall trends for this upcoming season. The trends this year are amazing!

One of my favorites is the fur trend! To show this I have this amazing blush pink fur jacket! I paired this jacket with a basic white crew neck tee, medium wash distressed AG jeans, and some grey ankle booties! LAURYN FALL 5One of my favorite trends has always been thigh high boots, I don’t think those will ever go out of style for fall! I paired these boots with a tight black skirt, an over sized sweater, and a big purple hat. This outfit screams fall!

I highly suggest trying out this trend in the fall time! I paired these black leather jeans with a button up white top and pink Steve Madden slip ons!

LAURYN FALL 1It wouldn’t be fall without a Flannel! Ecco has so many amazing flannels this fall and they are incredibly soft and comfortable! I paired this red white and blue flannel with some dark wash denim Joe Jeans, and grey Steve Madden slip ons!

AMO Translated Is The Latin Root Word For Love

 

Yes it is true! Ecco is proud to now be carrying a new denim line. Since we are the denim hot spot of downtown Burlington, we knew there was no better way to start off July than gaining a new denim line. Recently created, AMO denim has five specific must have styles that targets all customers. Created by industry veterans with experience from True Religion and Current Elliot, AMO’s five styles are cut from the best vintage denim and range from your true boyfriend jean to your true skinny jean. All of their denim is carefully made with love so that everyone can find their perfect jean. Below is a small excerpt from the AMO website that elaborates further on the AMO story

imgres

Longtime friends and self proclaimed denim soulmates, Kelly Urban and Misty Zollars founded AMO in 2014 out of a personal desire and void in the market.  ”We couldn’t find the jeans we wanted to wear” both stated, ”We absolutely love vintage jeans, but we find that they rarely fit well and are often uncomfortable.  We wanted that vintage look, but also wanted a jean that fit perfectly, and that felt good on.

But it doesn’t stop here, AMO also works with a non-profit organization named SNP LA. This non-profit organization is the largest nonprofit spay and neuter animal welfare organization in California. When buying a pair of AMO denim, you know that a small portion of the proceeds are going to a loving and nurturing organization. What better way to shop? Here is another excerpt from the AMO website explaining in depth what SNP LA does.

 SNP LA’s vision is to ensure that spay, neuter and veterinary wellness services are affordable and accessible to all pet owners in the Los Angeles area and to create an environment in which animal shelters no longer rely on euthanizing animals as a way of controlling pet population.  SNP LA has spayed and neutered over 100,000 cats and dogs – preventing millions of animals from being born into homelessness.

Here are the 5 styles that AMO carries. Each come in different washes which include distressing and non-distressing. Come to Ecco this July and find your new favorite pair of jeans from AMO denim!
