September in Colorado might be full of hot, Indian Summer days, but it’s hard to resist the urge to snap up the fun fall trends popping up in stores and online. For me, fall fashion has always been about self-expression, from grade-school days when choosing the perfect “first-day outfit” had the power to make or break your whole year, to the adolescent years when fashion became a little less creative and a little more about fitting in. (Whew, glad that’s over!) These days, grown-up fashion is about having fun and a “you-do-you” attitude, as my kids would say. It’s in this you-do-you spirit that we’ve rounded up inspiration for your own season of self-expression, from our Bikers & Babes feature to the latest trends in high-end hair and skincare services (psst… no need to drive into the city). Join us as we interview a national (local) jewelry sensation, tour the burgeoning artists’ scene at Valor Christian High School and share our top picks for a brand new season of arts and culture at the Lone Tree Arts Center. Here’s wishing you an inspired September!
