Flashback - Fall 2004 Fashion

Making choices about what to wear every season can sometimes be a daunting task. What you think is in style one season may be viewed as passé the next, especially by the hardcore fashionistas. The reverse can also be true; something you'd consider old and unattractive can be all the rage right now, as is the case with an old tweed checkered jacket. You read right -- they're one of the coolest items to hit the streets this fall.

Remember, smart dressers don't follow trends blindly. Instead, they tend to purchase the aspect of the particular trend that appeals to them and then incorporate it into their existing wardrobe. So what's in style this fall? Find out with the following list of items, and check out how to wear them this season.

Argyle sweater
From Banana Republic, this half-zip, argyle, long-sleeve sweater is made from the finest merino wool. It features a half-zip mock collar, elbow patches for durability and an extra rugged look, and a contrast trim along the inner collar, sleeves and hem.

Wear it with: This fall, it's all about layering, and the good news is that you won't have to worry too much about matching colors because the craze is also about contrasting colors. You can wear your new argyle sweater over a plaid or striped shirt -- with or without a tie -- and with your favorite pair of jeans, or even over your favorite turtleneck paired with flat-front pants for a dressier look.
