There are hundreds of reasons to love autumn – leaves turning to bright hues of red, orange and yellow, crisp fall air, cozy fires, pumpkin spice lattes and the start of the holiday season. TBH, though, the main reason is the return of comfy clothes and all of the new fall fashion trends. From plaid to retro athletic gear to the perfect accessories, we’re already clocking our favorite looks of the season.
Plaid About It
This fall, we’re loving the return to plaid – in particular, plaid trousers for both guys and gals. This must-have print makes for looks that feel retro but also totally new. Check and mate!
Are You Over It?
Ok, so we just can’t get over the overall trend – and we’re guessing you can’t, either! They’re great for layering as you move into fall. Wear yours with booties and a cashmere turtleneck for a chic look or pair with sneakers and a sweatshirt for a more athletic take.
Slide Into Fall
Talk about footwear du jour. If you don’t have a pair of peep toe mules or slides in your closet, now’s the time to hop on board the bandwagon. You can easily take this trend into fall with a cute pair of ankle socks.
Fall Fashion Trends to Cross the Finish Line In
For 2017, athleisure has taken a turn for the retro with 80s tracksuits and old school athletic brands like Fila, Reebok and Champion. This is one of the most comfortable fall fashion trends, so there’s no reason not to incorporate it into your cool-weather wardrobe.
Hats Off To Fall
Extra, extra! Read all about it! Newboys caps are the preferred way to protect your locks from the elements this season. You can also top off your outfit with a beret for a cozy look that feels very Paris-in-the-70s.
You Ought to Try the Aughts
One of our favorite fall fashion trends for 2017 is the return of late 90s/early 2000s style. For inspiration, refer to movies like Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion, Clueless, Bring It On, 10 Things I Hate About You and Mean Girls. This is a great excuse to plan a girls night and marathon some of these classics!
Doc of the Town
Doc Martens actually defy trends – they’re totally classic and are proving to be as popular this fall as they’ve ever been. What can we say? Guaranteed to keep your feet cozy and looking cool, they’re kind of a no-brainer. Grab a pair in a solid color like black, brown or maroon for an option that will go with everything or make a statement in a fun pattern like leopard print.
