Fall Trends to Try

Ladies, if you haven’t already yet, it’s time to do the big closet turnover. This is the time to pack your summertime staples into the trenches of your closet and start pulling out your cozy sweaters, long sleeves and jackets. When you do the big closet switch-a-roo, you might discover last season’s cold-weather frocks are not measuring up to this year’s trending fashions. Priority suddenly sets in to give your ensembles a little refresher. “But, what are the big trends this season,” you ask? This is where I can help! Here are just a few simple, on-trend options to add to your fall/winter wardrobe that will also complement the winter-ready staples you already own. 






Ponchos and Capes

When mornings and evenings turn chilly, sometimes all you need is something to cover your shoulders. Capes and ponchos are the perfect solution! Try this sophisticated layer over a sweater dress, leggings and riding boots.







Oxfords and Loafers

One of the hottest trends of the season for women are menswear flats. Substitute your ballerina styles for some oxfords or loafers. These masculine styles are a classic, polished look to complement a skinny jean or cigarette pant.  






Carry-All Totes

An oversize tote is a necessity year round, but the season calls for buttery soft leather and suede materials. Don’t be afraid to venture from traditional black and try a forest green or eggplant purple. Using your bag as a statement piece will add interest to your wintery, dark ensembles.






The Miniskirt

The ‘70s micro mini is making a huge comeback. Designers Saint Laurent and Carven showed off these short hemlines at NYFW paired with tights and ankle booties. Try the look in rich suede or leather material mixed with solid tights, a pointed bootie and faux fur accessories.







Bohemian chic fashion continues to be a hot trend this season with fringe accents complementing these earthy-inspired styles. A suede fringe handbag or beaded tassel lariat are the perfect parings to ‘70s era silhouettes.







Plaids were hot last fall, and they don’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Instead of the traditional plaid shirt, mix it up a little with an oversize coat or scarf. 





Wine Accessories

Merlot or wine color is a hit across the board in fashion this season. From head to toe, the color seems to be flooding the market. Slowly introduce the color to your wardrobe with accessories. A wallet, hat or scarf is just the small touch you need to show off your fashion know-how.

Inspired By: Pastel Shell

When we think of fall transition, we typically shift to richer, deeper colors. While that’s true, we can’t help but be gravitated towards the refreshing trend of fall outerwear done in soft, dusty pastel hues. It just lightens up our standard fall palette so nicely and with minimal effort.

There’s just something a bit unexpected yet approachable about throwing on a pale coat over your fall outfits. Today’s street style inspiration does just that with a subdued blush-colored trench over her dark outfit.

Check out our version of this fresh take on early fall outerwear:
