Fall fashion tips from owners of women’s clothing stores in Volusia


The weather is finally, finally cool.

For women who want to shake up their wardrobe this fall, the key is understanding your personal style.

Fortunately, Volusia County has an array of local clothing stores to help you get started. Here are some tips from three local shops.

JYL House

“When it comes to fashion, people shouldn’t think about it too much,” said Jakara Lewis, owner of House of JYL at 807 Mary McLeod Bethune Blvd. at Daytona Beach.

“They should always buy things they like. A lot of people comply with social media. Most people copy what they see others wearing. Some don’t even know what their real style is.

“If you’re a versatile and daring person, be versatile and daring. If you’re a more relaxed person and have a simple style, keep it simple. When people try to dress outside of their style it is always a disaster.

House of JYL offers women’s sizes from small to extra large.

“Most of the clothes we wear are stretchy,” Lewis said. “I prefer comfort, I don’t really like wearing clothes that aren’t stretchy because they’re not flattering to my main group of buyers.”

Lewis said the basic parts are essential.

“A nice pair of denim jeans would be a great staple,” she said. “With a nice pair of denim you can wear heels, sandals, sneakers, it depends on your mood. I always recommend people to have a light, medium and dark wash. They blend differently with different colors and textures So I always tell people to invest in a nice pair of jeans.

Lewis said that beautiful doesn’t always mean expensive.

“You can find good quality jeans for $ 50 or $ 60,” she said. “I don’t mind paying more money for some items if I can keep it for a few years. Some people don’t want to invest, but that’s the style. “

Lewis said it’s also a good idea to keep colors neutral in the mix.

“Neutral colors are easy to mix and can take your outfit far,” she said.
