Fall into these fashion trends to impress your neighbor

Sugar and spice and everything nice!

Fall has officially arrived, so let’s turn to our closets in search of that perfect trenchcoat or warm knitted sweater you have been waiting to wear.

We all have those fall essentials we go back to year after year, whether it’s the short ankle booties, a thick woven cardigan, or those pair of jeans that go well with every outfit. Well, even when you think you are all set for the fall, there are still some ways to upgrade your closet.

Mixed prints, oversized wear, black leather and faux furs are the hot topic for this fall. Here are some major fall trends that you should know about:


Denim comes in all sorts of different styles. From skinny jeans, high-waisted, cropped straight to bell bottoms, the perfect pair of jeans is up to you.

Light jackets

A lightweight jacket is essential for fall because it’s easy to throw on and you can always layer it with thicker knits underneath.  

Basic tees

Whether it’s a long sleeve or short sleeve, a basic T-shirt is universal. You can switch it up with a thick coat, vest or blazer.


From bags to jackets, oversized is a fashion statement. An oversized tote is indispensable for filling it with items you need … or don’t. Blouses and tees can be topped off with an oversized coat or cardigan. It could be the perfect statement for your outfit.


There are a variety of patterns to choose from, but florals seem to be trending, from delicate to bold colors.


Believe it or not, plaid can be worn in almost every way. From blazers to jumpsuits, button-ups or pants, this pattern can be worn mixed and matched for this fall. Layering different patterns and material will have you looking fresh off the runway.

Dad shoe

A white chunky sneaker seems to be making its way back in today’s fashion. A thick-soled shoe can be paired with almost anything, from a dress, to a skirt or a pair of skinny jeans.

Ankle boots

Booties are the perfect go-to during the fall that can be worn with almost every outfit. White and off-white colors along with other neutrals will be seen a lot more.

Hair accessories

The ‘90s are back which means zigzag headbands, scrunchies, bobby pins and clamps. These accessories can be well-worn with any fall outfit.


From wrapping a warm, cozy scarf to tying a silky-smooth patterned kerchief, the possibilities are endless. Using one around a bag strap, hair tie or as purse accessories can be fashionably creative.
