What Style Are You? Rock the Neon Look

The 80's are back this season, and it's time to get your style rocking. Go for disco glam in Day-Glo greens, orange and pink. Wear bright colors to the max, a sexy mini skirt, short power dress, or oversize top. Accessorize with fun bangle bracelets, chain necklaces, lace details, and loud adornments. Make your fall look pop!

It's back to school time, and that means you are inevitably planning your fall wardrobe. Head to Marshalls and stock up on these four awesome trends: you'll find the same merchandise as in department stores and malls but for way less. The store's got you covered with fabulous fashion finds that will carry you through the season and beyond. Enhance your entire look with new pieces that won't break the bank, then get ready to hit the hallways in style!

Bomber style jackets are an easy way to spruce up any look. Perfect for the transitional weather, this laid back piece is one of the coolest wardrobe essentials around.

The look is almost synonymous with back to school, but this year plaids have come a long way from the boring uniform. Tartans, checked prints and flannel fabrics are being reinterpreted in fun dresses, comfy skirts and cool tops.

Let's hope this school year brings peace, love, and happiness. Tie-dye shirts, printed tees, distressed denim and suede accents rock for fall. Add a dash of Woodstock to your wardrobe for a look that sings.

Bohemian pieces are essential for fall. Go for peasant shirts, prairie skirts, Gypsy jewels and a dose of fringe. Give the wild west a tribal twist for a fun look all your own.

Jeans That Fit Your Style!

What's Your Style?
The right pair of jeans can make your wardrobe. Not only should the perfect fit flatter your body, but it should show off your personality as well. Here are some suggestions for Gap 1969 fits that enhance your personal style.

Carefree and Casual:
The Boyfriend
Comfort is essential for you. You favor loose and airy over tight and restricting. Your look is all natural without being sloppy. Go for versatile pieces that will carry your wardrobe. A pair of boyfriend jeans can be both elegant and easy. For running errands, lunch with friends, or a walk in the park, wear yours with crisp button-down; a light denim version makes for an especially cool outfit. If you want to dress things up a bit, go for a silky tank or flowy blouse.

The Polished Professional: The Real Straight
Your look is always sharp and stylish. Whether you're heading to the office or out on a date, you embrace the classics in a modern way. You understand business casual and know how to mix and match separates for a variety of fabulous and appropriate outfits. Straight-leg jeans are both sexy and sophisticated - best of all, they're timeless. Darker washes work best for your lifestyle. Dress them up with a delicate blouse and fitted blazer or relax in a soft tee.

The Edgy Fashionista:
The Always Skinny
You're always ahead of the trends. Never one to shy away from making a statement, you are known to turn heads with your unique style. Even as the seasons come and go, you stay true to your
key pieces. Skinny jeans are your wardrobe staple. They're ideal for creating juxtaposed looks. For a rock 'n' roll aesthetic, go for a distressed pair and fitted denim jacket. To elongate your legs, wear skinny jeans with an amazing pair of peeptoe heels.
