Here at Sell By Mail, there is one thing we can all agree on – we just can’t wait for fall! When we’re gazing at a saguaro cactus on an 80 degree November day (we’re based out of the Southern Arizona desert, go figure), it feels like crisp fall weather will never truly be here. So, while we wait, we’ve been poring over fashion mags and scouting our favorite stores to put together a wish list of our favorite fall fashion trends. Here are some of the men’s and women’s cool-weather styles that we’ve been dreaming of lately.
If you’re all about denim, you’re in luck this season! Whether you’re rocking the workwear inspiration or feeling a So-Cal skater vibe, pair classic trucker jackets and bombers with slim straight jeans in every wash under the rainbow for an updated denim-on-denim look. Bring a modern feel to basic pieces with patches or distressing and don’t forget to look for denim in unexpected places – like shoes, for example!
Fall Fashion Trends That Are Anything But “Basic”
You don’t have to dress like you‘re sitting in the front row at Fashion Week to have some serious style. One of our favorite fall fashion trends is (drum roll, please)… basics! It’s time to have fun with your fashion standbys. Punch up the style factor of your jeans and tee combo with a retro-inspired or authentic vintage graphic tee. Add some pop to your classic button-down with an all-over print. There are endless ways to keep your style fresh without piling on the trends.
New Fall “Neutrals”
While some people hear “neutral” and think “boring,” a rich palette of fall tones is anything but dull! Neutrals are no longer limited to black, white and beige. Bright cobalt blue, timeless olive green and deep burgundy go with anything and everything and can take a simple outfit to the next level.
Pop of Color
As much as we love neutrals, sometimes you need to put some pep in your step with a little color. A tomato red sweater will definitely add fire to a monochrome outfit! Even if you’re not into brights, nothing in the color wheel is off limits this year. If you’re sick of beige, a lavender moto jacket or a millennial pink pea coat could be just what the doctor ordered.
The New Distressing
Distressed denim has been a closet staple for so long, it’s been feeling a little like denim had nowhere new to go. Luckily, the art of perfectly worn-in denim has reached new heights. One of the fall fashion trends we’ve been seeing everywhere is distressed hems – and we love them! You can rock this trend, no matter your style. There’s a level of distressing that will work for anyone, from raw hems to hi-low step hems to hems that are so distressed they have full-on fringe. Don’t write off the lived-in denim jacket just yet, though – these iconic pieces have become closet staples that pair perfectly with any style.
Bold Graphic Prints
These days, there’s a print for every style – classic or quirky, minimalist or bold. If you’re ready to go all out, then go big with a marble-inspired print in bold black and white. For a more subtle version, try an oversized plaid in a monochrome mix of soft grays. Don’t forget about lush fall florals, quirky polka dots, menswear-inspired checks, lumberjack plaids and even camo.
