Fall is by far my most favorite season, from pumpkin-spice-everything to cozy evenings cuddled up with our loved ones. With cooler weather and school back in session, it feels as though fall brings a delightful wash of tranquility to Northern Colorado.

Fall is also the most fun season for fashion. With the heat of summer behind us, we are finally able to style ourselves with layers, texture and my favorite, boots! Before moving to Colorado, my involvement in New York Fashion week was always on the sidelines—and there was no denying that in its long and prominent history, the fashion industry represented only one standard of beauty. That is why, in this issue we champion style for everyone and every body.

Fashion should bring us all together, no matter our age, gender or size. We all want to look and feel our best, and with so many incredible boutiques in Fort Collins, we can do just that. Thanks to the efforts of each boutique’s curator and founder to bring style to the foothill, we are able to have our finger on the pulse of on-trend styles, luxury brands and casual ready-to-wear.

This month we are also celebrating Orthopaedic and Spine Center of the Rockies’ 50 years of dedication to the Fort Collins community by sharing a peek at the world of sports medicine and the CSU Rams, a partnership dating back to 1969. Keeping our bodies healthy has never been more in fashion. 

This month we implore you to step outside of your comfort zone and try something new! Thank you for reading, and happy fall!
