OLD NAVY FALL 2008 COLLECTION GOES BACK TO SCHOOL
Modern Preppy Looks Take Her From Office to Weekend
SAN FRANCISCO, July 11, 2008 – Old Navy’s fall 2008 collection features the best of fall’s trends for the family, all available at Old Navy’s great value prices. The August collection takes classic preppy looks and gives them a modern twist, while September focuses on the color-blocking trend in a variety of fabrics and shapes. Whether it’s form-fitting blazers and bold printed skirts for her or fashion denim and stylish tops for back-to-school, Old Navy’s fall collection is both versatile and on trend.
Modern Preppy – Old Navy’s take on the classic preppy look is refreshing and unique — traditional pieces are infused with a modern vibe. The argyle ruffle cardigan ($29.50) is a perfect introduction to fall weather, while a sweater vest ($24.50) adds a preppy flair to her wardrobe. To create a head-turning autumn look, pair the ruffle polo knit dress ($24.50) with a bauble heel ($34.50). For him, a cotton sweater vest ($19.50) with a short-sleeved dress shirt ($19.50) has a retro-collegiate feel.
Colorblocking – Old Navy’s fall colorblocking fashions offer a modern edge and instant style to classic shapes. The colorblock satin dress ($34.50) transitions easily from day to night; pair it with the cropped 3 button jacket ($39.50) for the perfect solution to those cool fall evenings. The ponte fabric colorblock dress ($29.50), with a flattering fit and side seam pockets is perfect for a weekend stroll. Add flair to weekend denim by pairing it with the two-toned cardigan ($29.50). A bold colored patent leather handbag ($29.50) is the finishing touch to any fall outfit.
Silk Satin – Taking a cue from the fall runways, Old Navy’s August and September collections feature dresses and tops in silky satin fabrics. Satin scoop neck dresses ($34.50) in deep fall hues are feminine, flirty, and versatile. Paired with a simple flat, they are perfect for work; trade the flats for a stunning pair of heels to take the dress into the evening. The pleated satin cami ($24.50), available in an array of fall colors, can be casual or dressed up.
