Fall is here! For some of us, that means festivals, family gatherings, all-pumpkin everything and cozy clothes weather. For the fashion-conscious, fall is a time to turn over a new leaf when it comes to personal style. Whether you live for the trends or you’re looking to amp up your look, fall is the perfect time to experiment and tweak your style.
Want to know the hottest clothing and accessory trends this fall? Then this article is for you. Here are a few things to keep on your style radar this season.
Fall In Love With Hats
If you’ve never thought about hats, consider a fedora. They’re great for fall and can pair well with your favorite coat, blazer or oversized sweater. When it comes to hats, it’s important to consider the shape of your face to know whether it suits you. But don’t be afraid to give this fashionable look a try. Fedoras come in a range of fabrics, from wool to straw. They also have wider brims if you want to go for more drama. So play around with fedoras or hats in general. You’d be surprised by how well one might look with your hair.
Go for Jackets
Whether it’s a leather jacket, a bomber jacket, a band jacket or a military jacket, jackets are always necessary for fall. They never go out of style and they give the warmth that is needed as the weather gets chilly. Jackets always come in stylish patterns that can work for most of your fall outings. They can also give you that fierce look while looking sleek.
If you have an old jacket that you can still wear, don’t be afraid to break it out. Retro looks always seem to be in. This year, you’ll see nods to the 80s and 90s, so go ahead and rock that cool denim jacket you had back in the day or that plaid jacket that you bought on a whim and never wore.
Jumpsuits and Maxi Dresses
Thanksgiving is the time when you get to catch up with family members that you haven’t seen in a while. Instead of going with that turkey sweatshirt or cornucopia sweater for your gatherings, why not try a look to really be thankful for. Try a sophisticated jumpsuit or a voluminous maxi dress. Jumpsuits are still in vogue and not leaving the fashion scene anytime soon. Maxi dresses are super appropriate for the fall season. You can wear either with a blazer, cardigan or a cute moto jacket, and either would look great with a stylish, short hair style or long flowing layers.
Give Yourself the Boot
Boots are always a must for fall. With all the options out there today, it’s possible to keep your feet warm and dry in stylish and comfortable ways. As mentioned before, retro looks are back. Only this time around, you can add some more funkiness to them. Animal prints are going to be big, so your boots don’t have to be boring. Get daring with zebra print boots or turn heads with pair of cheetah print thigh boots. Not your thing? No problem. Hiking boots, cowboy boots and even those 80s throwback looks are all in the fashion forecast for this year.
Put on your rose-colored glasses for real, because it’s all about colored lenses and statement glasses this fall. These lenses are trendy and can be worn by anyone. So if you bought some cool and totally outrageous sunglasses or frames, congrats! You’re on trend. And again, retro looks will work as well.
Purses are definitely aren’t going anywhere and just like everything else, those styles from the 80s and 90s are in. That means chain straps, animal prints, neon brights, faux fur and even chainmail are good to go. Logo prints are back in, so break out those vintage designer purses if you have them. And if you’re over big, bulky purses, check out a necklace purse which is like a wallet or coin purse that you can wear around your neck.
Fall is filled with endless fashion possibilities. It’s a season filled with new style challenges for daring fashionistas on any budget. So explore the trends and don’t hold back. And you don’t have to give your credit card a workout to pull these looks off. Get creative with items in your wardrobe or check out your local thrift stores and consignment shops.
Also, you don’t have to take on a trend head on. For example, you want to try animal prints? Don’t go out and buy a zebra print jumpsuit. Maybe try a wristlet, scarf, tank or pair of flats with your outfit to incorporate the trend.
Fashion is about expression, creativity and comfort. If you’re comfortable and you love how you look in the mirror, you’re golden!
