Hey guys! I know fall doesn’t officially start for another month, but if you’re like me you’re already looking at fall fashion. It also only seemed fitting to be posting this today since Starbucks fall drinks are now available! So today I rounded up eight trends for fall this year that sparked my attention. Also all photos are from Pinterest, if you want to find their source you can check out the board. Let’s get into it.
Silky and Slinky
The silky slip dress still reigns this year. A great way to carry the slip dress into fall is layering a t-shirt or long sleeve underneath it and adding tights. Add some chunky boots and channel the 90s vibes. The silk trend also extends to blouses. Little silky tops are great for fancy occasions. Long-sleeve blouses are perfect for the office. When in doubt, go the silky route.
In the fall it’s usually darker shades that are in fashion. This year bright, jewel tones are in fashion. Colour blocking is also big, so mixing a bright blue skirt with a deep emerald is going to be a big thing. Some other bright shades include magenta and mustard yellow.
Skinny jeans are now a staple. But if you want to be on-trend, get a looser style. Mom jeans, boot cut, flare and mom jeans are all in right now. They are the perfect base for any casual outfit.
This started last year, but sweater vests are going to be huge this year. Trust me, I was in Garage and Dynamite and they were everywhere. I got myself this brown sweater vest from Garage. They can be worn alone or with a shirt underneath when the weather gets colder.
I’m putting two trends together here. Tailoring and suits have been big for a while and they’re still big this year. So if you were on the fence about getting a nice suit, do it. The other half of this trend is the ‘dark academic’ vibes are strong this year. Tailored pieces are a huge part of that trend, so nice blazers and tailored pants in browns, blacks and creams are worth looking into.
Bags are really fun this year. The puffy and guilted look is very in right now, very much inspired by Botella Veneta. I have a couple of their bags in my inspiration above. If that look isn’t your thing, try getting a textured baguette bag. Crocodile leather is textured but not as dramatic.
If you love print then this is your year. Prints are very much in, which can seem very intimidating. If you’re new to print, take one printed piece and pair it with a basic such as jeans or a t-shirt. Or try animal prints such as leopard or cow print instead – both are popular this fall.
It wouldn’t be fall without some knitwear. It was all over the runway so it will be all over the clothing racks as well. Instead of the usual knit, try going for a chunkier cable knit. Like with the bag trend, texture in a knit is very big.
And those are my eight fall fashion trends! Let me know in the comments which one caught your eye the most or which trend you will be trying out for yourself!
