Yes, it’s true. Fall is right around the corner.
While transitioning into the new season, we’ll be confronted with new and exciting style trends. However, there’s no need to ditch last year’s wardrobe. It may only mean a few garment additions or outfit modifications to keep you in the fashion forefront.
1. Reworking the Colors
Tan, tan, and more tan. From a soft khaki to a hazy camel, expect to see loads of slacks, skirts, and jackets in this classically chic color.
If you’re the adventurous type, shift into a modern color combination from spring, such as a dusty pink and yellow. For an autumnal feel, look for an overcoat, turtleneck, or fitted jacket in this sunny combination.
2. All About Pattern
Last year’s bold plaid was all the rage. This fall, look for subtle, muted tartan on slim dresses and jackets. It’s not just for flannel shirts any longer.
Also worth seeking out, are fall garments that include small, yet bold, floral patterns. Try pairing a metallic floral top with slouchy tan pants and slipper-esque loafers for a versatile and updated look.
3. Still Da Bomb
Aviator-style shearling jackets are back again this year. The best thing about a shearling bomber – you can pair it with distressed denim as well as a midi dress.
2016 is not the year to cocoon yourself in a massive fur coat. Sorry luxury and comfort, this year’s fall trends are leaning toward small bits of fluff. Limit your fur-exposure to a stole or collar for a more modern look.
Never mastered “long scarf tying 101”? You’re in luck. This year, choose a skinny scarf or chunky choker. These accessories add that little extra something-something to your cocktail dress or button-down blouse. Better yet? Purchase a pinstripe silk blouse with a matching skinny scarf. No thinking there!
Of course, this is just a small taste of 2016’s fall fashion trends. If you’re courageous, try the Kendall Jenner-approved furry slides (think slippers) or socks with heels “funky” footwear combination. Pair these heels with a straight-leg shredded ankle denim and you’ll have people talking.
