Soft and cozy slippers, robes and jackets in shearling, fleece, faux fur and chenille are trending this year. Personalized gifts in colors like burgundy, mauve, cream and black are selling well. Women’s winter fashion is bright and loud, reflective of both the strong economy and the mood of the country as we head into the 2020 election season. Silver sequins, pops of neon orange, and feathers are big in fashion this year — trends we only tend to see during strong economies. Busy prints in giraffe, snake, cheetah, houndstooth and check are also popular as people make their voices and their fashion heard. The epitome of both the country’s optimism and uncertainty is captured best by the flip sequin trend, which is appearing on everything from kids tops and sweaters to women’s purses and boots.
