Fall is in full swing (though sometimes it seems like the warmer weather wants to stick around) but, if you’re like me, you’re chomping at the bit to break out all of your autumn bests, regardless of the weather. Below are 9 fall clothing trends you can try right now, and how to wear them!
Fall Clothing Trends and How to Wear Them
Dark florals are perfect for fall and winter. Their deep tones are stunning and beautiful in contrast to the pastels and bright hues usually reserved for spring and summer. Look for anything in colors like deep wine, hunter green, or even black. You will look flirty and feminine, and totally on-trend with the season.
Florals are ideal for dresses and skirts, which already have a feminine flair. They also pair perfectly with trousers or skirts for work–a quick and easy way to spruce up your office attire.
Vests of All Kinds
For days that start out cool and turn warmer in the afternoon, there’s nothing better than a vest to complete the outfit. Layering is essential when the weather can’t make up its mind, and vests are the perfect layering piece for the milder fall months.
Try a longer version with a matching hem-length dress, or let it be the focal point of your outfit against an all-black ensemble. For more casual days, try a lightweight puffer vest over a simple long-sleeved t-shirt for running errands and such.
Cozy knits scream fall, more so than just about anything else. When the nights turn cool, nothing beats a heavy knit turtleneck, a simple cardigan, or a long sweater paired with your favorite jeans.
I have a deep love for suede (faux suede, real suede, I don’t discriminate). This fabric is so chic and luxurious that it works well with so many different looks. Suede is one of my favorite fabrics during the fall months. Be it on skirts, moto jackets, dresses, or pants, it is a go-to fabric for welcoming the autumn season.
Wool is a no-brainer when it comes to keeping warm. Short or long, casual or formal, wool is a go-to fabric for extra chilly days during the fall months. It can be a bit on the itchier side, so using it as a layering piece ensures optimal comfort.
A micro-corduroy fabric is uber chic and warm. Corduroy works great on a mini-length A-line skirt, a pair of flared pants, or even straight-leg pants. Don’t overlook this beautiful cool-weather staple!
Military green and camo print is a perfectly versatile color for fall. Treat it as neutral, it works with just about anything you would naturally pair with jeans.
This trend works great for casual ensembles–think sneakers, leather jackets, worn-in t-shirts. It can be ultra chic, especially when the rest of the look is kept simple.
Leather, Leather and More Leather
Leather (or faux leather) is as cool-girl as it gets when it comes to fall fashion trends. It’s chic on anything: jackets, pants, skirts, dresses. You name it, it works in leather. There are so many great faux leather options out there that you can truly try this trend at any price point.
Capes and Ponchos
Like vests, capes and ponchos are perfect layering pieces and work incredibly well for fall’s indecisive weather. I think that capes are effortlessly chic. They look adorable over a fitted cotton turtleneck and jeans–just an absolutely perfect fall companion. Bonus: they are maternity-friendly!
