While I am by no means a fashion blogger, this girl loves clothes. My American Express card would be the first to tell you I have a bit of a shopping problem. All this shopping keeps me pretty exposed to what the latest trends are in the fashion world + this fall is no exception. From prints + patterns to colors + products, I’ve picked eight of my favorite can’t-miss fall fashion trends!
Can’t-Miss Fall Fashion Trends: Prints
When you think of fall colors, your mind goes to oranges, browns, and maybe even burgundy, but not this year. This year, fashion is all about mustard. Yellow may *seem* like a summer color, but the richness and darker tone of mustard make it the perfect, happy hue to wear this season. I’m already using my Old Navy mustard flannel (flannel is of course, still a fall trend) as an accent since it is a little too warm to wear.
Speaking of what’s on your clothes, two prints are making a stand this year. The first is another summer favorite, floral. Fall florals are done a little differently than those in warmer months. These florals typically use darker colors + feature smaller or overexaggerated flowers. The other big pattern trend this year is animal print. Whether it’s snake or leopard, clothing items featuring this trend add a little fierceness to any look. I’ve added some new tops and ADORABLE shoes to get my animal print fix, they aren’t on sale anymore, but these mules are!
Can’t-Miss Fall Fashion Trends: Pieces
Speaking of shoes, it’s time to say goodbye to sandals + hello to booties. While ankle boots are still the hottest shoe for fall, high-top sneakers are giving them a run for their money. I am seeing these everywhere including Target + DSW. Another accessory I’m seeing a lot of are round purses. Get the right style bag + this fall fashion trend will transcend the season to last you all year. Round bags are visually interesting but still practical enough to handle all your stuff.
Speaking of making a comeback, ponchos are here + I don’t think they want to leave again. Middle school Katherine would be very glad this is one of the fall fashion trends. Ponchos are a great alternative to a sweater + so warm. I keep one at my desk when the A/C is really blasting. I also have this cute poncho from Draper James that is Memphis Tiger-chic without giving me cowboy vibes.
Can’t-Miss Fall Fashion Trends: Looks
Even if my poncho did give me western vibes, it would be okay because west is best, at least when it comes to can’t-miss fall fashion trends. Booties + chambray make achieving that ’80s western look so easy. Maybe this is the Texas in me or the influence of West World, but I am not mad about incorporating a little cowboy-chic into my look. I’ve always been a lover of chambray + this dress from LOFT perfectly fits the bill – as does this one.
Not only are the ’80s back, but the ’70s are, too! Bell sleeves + bell bottoms are hot, hot hot. Bell sleeves are flowing + comfortable + balance an outfit. While bell bottoms aren’t taking the place of skinny jeans, they make a statement + are sure to get you noticed. I found this amazing + dramatic pair from Eloquii.
If like me, you aren’t a runway model, there are still plenty of ways to incorporate these trends into your life. Have you seen any can’t-miss fall fashion trends that you’re loving? Head over to Instagram + let me know!
