It’s always sort of a bummer when the days start getting shorter and summer starts to vanish, but if there’s anything to get you pumped up for the cooler months it’s fall fashion. Here are some the trends to pay attention to this time around.

Puff Coats

Good news for anyone who lives in a town where it truly gets cold during the winter…puffer coats are turning fashionable after appearing on the fall fashion runways. To avoid looking like a snowman in one think about your proportions and keep it slim on the bottom half of your body. Leggings and skinny jeans are a good option.

Faux Fur

The appeal of faux fur is not going anywhere, and thank goodness. Faux fur coats are not only warm for the cooler months but they are the perfect way to make any outfit look a little more dressed up. That means stepping up your jeans and also having a reasonable coat for more formal situations where you’re wearing a dress and don’t want to totally ruin the classy vibe.

Flare Jeans

Don’t get rid of your skinny jeans since those are always going to be flattering on certain body types, but you can take some flared jeans back to school to add some denim diversity to your wardrobe. Flare jeans look great with wedges or boots and can really elongate the leg since they extend down further than your skinnies will.

Black on Black

This fall pairing black with black is going to be on trend, which many of us already do. If you’re new to wearing head to toe black try to keep it interesting by mixing different fabrics and patterns. Think leather with cotton, studded with sleek, etc. When you mix fabrics you don’t have to worry too much about whether the shade of black actually matches.

Earrings that Make a Statement

This fall season’s jewelry trend is going to be statement earrings. That means big and bold. Just be sure to leave the rest of the statement jewelry at home when you’re rocking bold earrings so you don’t look like you’re wearing a costume. The same goes for your makeup, choose one feature to accentuate and leave the rest natural or nude.


Neon colors generally have a more summer vibe than a fall one, but this year you can expect to see neon color pops on otherwise neutral looking clothing items. Think neons paired with grey, camel, navy, or black. This might be a good opportunity to mesh together your summer and winter wardrobe and create some whole new outfits from clothing that you already have.

Large Knit Sweaters

Is there anything more cozy than a chunky knit sweater? Your bed doesn’t count. This season they’re in style which is good news for those days when you really just want to wear a hoodie to class but feel like you should make an effort for your cute T.A. Like anything else, mind the proportions and keep it thinner on the bottom when your sweater is oversized.
