Whenever August ends, I get this weird feeling that a new year is beginning. I blame my childhood! I used to get so nervous and excited for school to start. I would buy new pens and lay out my first day of school outfit (which was a uniform for the first 14 years of my life). Everything had to be in order. Typically I have the same rush of excitement for the month of September. The seasons change and so does the fashion. It’s time to pull out your plum colored sweaters and leather boots! Fall is coming. Today we are discussing six trends for fall:
One | Sweater weather
The nights are getting cooler and the days are getting shorter. It’s about to be sweater weather! This season chunky knits and cashmere coats are all the rage. Purchase your sweaters in deep reds and burgundies to pair with leather leggings and dark wash denim.
Two | Jewel Tones
This isn’t exactly a new trend. As we change over our closets, we tend to put away Easter egg colors and replace them with deep jewel tones. Sapphire, Emerald, Ruby – any and all jewel will be your best friend this fall. My favorite way to incorporate these hues are in my pumps or accessories. Spice it up!
Three | Geometric Shapes + Patterns
If you look at the fall runway shoes, you’ll see a ton of pattern! Lucky us – I love to mix it up. You will see really cool shapes and geometric designs on everything from skirts to earrings.
Four | Hats
Accessories add an element of surprise to any ensemble. Sometimes they are the only thing that pulls an outfit together. It’s no surprise that hats are having a moment as we enter the cooler weather. Felt fedoras and wool top hots will be the go-to accessory this season.
Five | Wine Colored Florals
Florals aren’t just for spring! They are for fall too! And they are coming at us in a whole myriad of ways. Deep red roses, poppy purples – they are gorgeous and add a ton of fun dimension!
Six | Smooth Leather
If you follow bloggers, you’re no stranger to Mansur Gavriel. The totes and backpacks, designed by Rachel Mansur and Floriana Gavriel, are having a major moment! Everyone who is anyone has one. They come in creamy, rich tones and ultra luxe, smooth leathers. Get it while it’s hot, my friends!
