Celebrating a woman’s shape is finally making a comeback – at least that’s what Sydney Fox will tell you.

Fox is a buyer for Cira, a women’s clothing shop in Old Town Fort Collins. As a buyer, Fox travels from coast to coast searching for the latest up-and-coming clothing fads to fit the season. She is currently on a two-day trip to Los Angeles stockpiling her fashion sense for the Cira Fall Fashion Show and Homecoming.

Fox began her career as a sales associate with the store three-and-a-half years ago and worked her way up to a job that not only encompasses buying but also managing and merchandising.

Following Fox’s fashion sense, here’s what’s in style for this fall and winter:

Materials: Satins and plaids

Colors: Gold, creams, charcoals, burnt orange and browns

Prints: Animal – especially leopard

Farmer flannels

Tops: Lots of thin layers (similar to last year)

Sweater dresses, with belts at waist, and leggings under

Jackets: Military jackets and vests

Pants: Tight jeans or leggings, also pants that stop at your calves, worn with boots. “The purpose is to make your lower body look long and skinny to off set the baggier tops,” Fox said.

Skirts: High-waist pencil skirts

“They are meant to show off the womanly shape by appreciating the hips,” Fox said. “I think it’s a really sexy look.”

Shoes: Pumps, round-toed boots, patent leather peek-a-boo toes

Accessories: Waist belts

Gold and wood jewelry

Long, chain necklaces – lots of layers

Bags: Patent leather or animal print
