#FALLFASHION — R. Tabb and Company


In a college town, Fall equals football, Rush, students returning to campus, cooler temperatures are on the way and so many fun activities.

And those fun activities require breaking out the Fall wardrobe and adding a few trendy pieces.

Rebecca Tabb of R. Tabb & Company, said blush and burgundy are “big colors this fall,” which coordinates perfectly with the team colors of our favorite college football team.

She said another “huge” fall trend is ripped or distressed jeans. She also said booties and over-the-knee boots will also be big this fall.

“And for Mississippi weather, layering is a must,” Tabb said. “Light weight jackets and long cardigan sweaters will also be big this fall.”
