Forecasting Fall Trends

July 15, 2018

Summer is wrapping up, which means fall is right around the corner. With a new season comes new trends, and this fall is no exception. To be fashion-forward this autumn means revamping some staples and adding a new flare. Here are some styles that hit the runway and inspired the high street. Is your wardrobe ready for a facelift?

Plaids for Days. Plaids have always been a staple for the fall season. This time around, they’re popping up in a variety of colors. Dare to stray from the classics such as black, gray, and white.  


Color Pop. Bright colors are all the rage this fall, with a bright palette of pinks, reds, and yellows. Incorporating these colors adds a bit of flare to your outfit.


Party Animal. Animal prints are back and better than ever! You were right to hold onto those cheetah-print leggings and that cow-print jacket, despite what your mother said. These fun prints are great accent pieces. Throw on an animal print to upgrade any casual outfit.


Howdy, Cowboy. The Wild Wild West has returned, and it’s packing fringe, prints, and boots.  Sporting cowboy-inspired pieces will make you on-trend this fall. Are you ready for Cowboy-chic?


Leather Weather. From jackets to pants and dresses to coats, hop on the leather bandwagon! If you still have your vintage leather jacket, break it out. The convenience and versatility of this fabric can’t be beat.


You can find all of these fresh styles in your favorite stores (hello Forever 21, hey Zara, hi H&M!) without breaking the bank. Also be sure to shop your closet for pieces that are having a moment this fall.
