Fall is one of the most anticipated season changes. The lower temps mean that you can layer, accessorize, and have more fun creating your fall fits. But to make sure your looks are as crisp as the falling leaves you need to be in tune with fall’s best fashion trends.
This year, we’re seeing all kinds of changes with the fashion norms. The work from home culture continues to make its impact on the style scene. And summer trends remain with subtle twists. Check out these inspiring trends to get started planning all your fave fall looks.
Bold Fall Prints
Summer’s bright florals make way for subdued yet punchy fall graphics. Earth-toned tribal prints and cozy plaids are perfect for layering and pattern mixing. The best part is that these fun designs are popping up everywhere.
A soft flannel easily doubles as a cardigan or jacket for cool fall evenings. Look for loose cut designs for maximum comfort. Contrasting blacks and whites or are perfect for mixing and matching. Plaids with punches of color like a thin yellow or orange stripe add a cheery vibe to the otherwise grunge-inspired look.
Geometric and tribal patterns are also having a big moment. Look for them in unexpected places to make a big statement. A sporty hoodie with a vibrant geometric pattern is a perfect touch of comfy style. Or, for the statement conscious, grab some tribal print sneakers or slip-ons to dip your toes in the waters of pattern wearing.
The Hats Have It
When the temps drop, nothing’s more appealing than a cozy hat. This is especially true if that hat adds a ton of style to your look. This fall, stock your closet with the trendiest hat to be sure you’re ready for any cool weather occasion.
Hats are great because they have the potential to look awesome on anyone that wants to rock them. The trick is to choose the right hat for your style and your face shape. Even if you need oversized hats or ones that are adjustable, you’re likely to find the perfect fit to sport this fall.
This year, the fedora is making a comeback for its refined structure and style. Look for calming tweeds and subtle plaids that are perfect for the season. And the soft and comfy beanie is an obvious choice to segway into winter. This season, bold graphics and fun colors take the reins to bring a carefree vibe to the classic hat.
Choose The Shoes
Say “bye” to summer sandals and get your feet fall-ready with a new shoe upgrade. The remote working trend has made the shoe game change its course towards casual. So your feet will be comfy while remaining uber casual.
The white sneaker is the official shoe of 2021 and everyone from Nike to Gucci are rolling out takes on the classics. Look for chunky or platform versions to make a statement. Or, keep it low-key with a simple sneaker that’s perfect with jeans.
And it’s not necessary to say “adios” to your sandals completely. It seems the socks and sandals trend is sticking around a little longer and fall is the perfect time to pull it off. Keep it fresh by trading your white socks for marbled wool versions. Or, make a big statement and don some graphic Fairisle ones under your Birks.
It’s in the Jeans
Nothing says fall like slipping on your fave pair of denim jeans. Refreshing your wardrobe with a few new pairs is a must. Having a variety to go with everything from a t-shirt to a button-down allows you to take your denim from the office to happy hour.
For women, you can never go wrong with a well-designed pair of straight-leg jeans. This fall, they will be your best friend as they are available in a ton of styles and look great on all body types. Look for choices in colors like merlot and forest green for a break from the norm.
The skinny jean look is still around for men this fall. However, straight-leg choices are also trending for a more relaxed vibe. Look for styles with a little bit of stretch that look great but are out of this world comfortable.
An Active Autumn
It’s time to trade swimwear for activewear as the temps cool. These comfy and cozy choices are ideal for fall and allow you to enjoy the great outdoors. With everything from performance to lounging in mind, activewear brands are providing you with everything you need to enjoy the season to the fullest.
Looking to brands notorious for high-performance athletic wear like Nike and Under Armor, you’ll see a continued trend of get-noticed styles this fall. Tie-patterns will remain a common sighting at the gym. And summer’s popular bike shorts will extend into fall in bold and bright patterns.
More comfy loungewear is also perfect for fall evenings or casual days of running errands. Look for soft joggers in popular shades of berry and blues. Cropped sweatshirts are the perfect blend of cozy and style to complete the look.
More Relaxing Workplace Looks
Maybe you are still working from home and have adopted the remote work wardrobe. Or, like many, you might be returning to the office. However, many companies have trended more casual with new workplace dress codes to make everyone happy.
The key to a casual yet professional look is making sure it’s pulled together while still being comfy. This fall, look for washable sweaters and stretchy button-downs that marry form and function. Even a nice, wrinkle-free polo can be dressy enough for a casual meeting or day at the office.
Working from home gives you a little more flexibility but you still might need to be prepped to pop on that Zoom call. Make sure you have one of this fall’s fashionable cardigans on hand to quickly dress up a plain tee. Stock up on solid v-necks in shades of mustard, sage, and maroon, great colors to welcome the fall season.
