Fall Trends

Fall is getting closer, like the icy touch of the grim reaper. Sorry, I have tunnel vision these days. It’s preventing me from enjoying the upcoming crisp air, and forcing me to focus on the impending snowstorms and deep freezes in the future.

I’m attempting to get excited about the new season here. For the most part, I don’t think we’re seeing anything new for fall; it’s the same deep colors, tailored cuts, menswear, and platform heels we’ve seen for the past few seasons. Nevertheless, there are a few trends that I’m excited about.
 

Leopard Print


Forever21 dress
I think I’m most excited about incorporating this print in my closet. It can look incredibly trashy or chic, depending on your styling. This dress, for example, is pretty… not good on it’s own. But lose the terrible belt and tuck it into high-waisted, wide-leg pants and becomes classy.

 

Stripes

A.L.C. striped dress
Okay, stripes aren’t necessarily a trend for fall. But I love them they way most pop singers love auto-tune. This dress? tunic? would look great with leather pants.

 

Leather

Mackage leather pants

My wardrobe is seriously lacking leather. I bought a leather tank top over the summer, but it doesn’t fit quite right. Leather pants would make me feel like such a badass.

 

Lace

Only Hearts lace vest
So pretty. I love this with a wool skirt and silk blouse.

 

Knits

American Eagle cardigan

Okay, this might be the only thing about cold weather that I like. Big sweaters like this make me feel like I’m wrapped in a giant blanket. This sweater is especially blanket-like.

 

Over the knee boots

Sigerson Morrison
Ah, yes. Hooker boots. If I don’t end up with leather pants (and come on, I’m broke. I can’t afford leather pants), I could just wear these with a short dress and pretend they’re pants. Right?

 
Tell me, what trends/styles am I missing?

    Camel is a huge color trend for fall and anything that appears to be military inspired seems to be popping up too. It’s been cool in DC for the last 3 days but I’m sure it will be blazing hot again but I’m ready for fall and boots!
