Fall fashion will be here before you know it. Be in the know about which items will be trending this season. Some trends we’ve seen before, but with a new twist. Others will take you by surprise and hopefully have you running to your nearest department store to buy! Here are some trends to be on the lookout for this fall.
1. Simple Clutch
This fall season it’s all about streamlined styles. The simple clutch will carry the necessities without a lot of fuss. Look for styles that will take you from day to night so you’ll be ready for any situation.

2. Oversized Tote
The oversized tote bag is a must-have for your fall wardrobe. It carries everything you need while running out and about. There’s something to be said about having everything with you at all times! Put together a cute fall outfit and accessorize with the tote.
3. Itty Bitty Bag
Everyone will want to be a part of the IBBC (itty bitty bag committee) this fall. A huge trend in fall fashion is the itty bitty bag. It’s more for looks than convenience, so you’ll have to narrow down what you can’t live without in your bag. When you find the secret on how to do that, let us know!
4. Plaid Blazer
If you don’t already have a blazer in your closet, then make sure you snag one for this fall! They are such a versatile item; you can wear them for work and for play alike. Add a blazer to any outfit to upgrade your look flawlessly.
5. Layered Jewelry
Subtle or statement? Choose which style best suits you and then layer up on the jewelry! A part of fall fashion this season is centered around accessories. So, stack bracelets or layer necklaces to add a little pizzazz to any outfit.
6. Dark Sunglasses
Don’t think your sunnies are just for the warm weather. Dark sunglasses will be everywhere this fall. Depending on where you live, there is a chance that you’ll have nice days well into the season. Be prepared for trips to the cider mill or tailgates with your dark sunglasses.
7. Scarf Scrunchies
We’re loving everything about this fall fashion essential. Need a cute bracelet? Done. Need to keep your hair out of your face? We got you! The scarf scrunchie is as cute as it is practical. Pick out darker colors and fun fabrics to help transition from summer to fall.
8. Knit Sweater
Stay warm and stylish with this wardrobe staple. The knit sweater is a classic piece that can be worn so many ways! Dress it up or down depending on your mood or the occasion. Try different necklines (scoop, v-neck or high neck) to see which style you like the best.
9. Slip Dress
Slip into fall’s sexiest dress. See what we did there? The slip dress is the perfect combination of sexy and stylish. Add a clutch and sandal for a fabulous look. Or, layer it with a body suit for a “wow” element. Either way, you really can’t go wrong!
10. Patterned Separates
Patterns will be one of the more eye-catching fall fashion essentials this year. Pair a bold pattern bottom with a solid top, or vice versa. This way, nothing clashes or becomes overwhelming! Try a more tailored look for work and save your fun pieces for going out with friends.
11. Barely There Sandal
Take your favorite summer sandal and transition it for fall. The barely there sandal is great for work and going out after. Fun colors will automatically boost your mood and make any outfit pop! Make sure to wear them as often as possible before the weather gets too cold.
12. Combat Boots
A 180 from the previous fall fashion trend, the combat boot is far more large and in charge. The combat boot can take on anything that comes its way. It gives off an edgier vibe than some other footwear styles, and will make anyone feel like a BA.
13. Ankle Boots
Is there anyone that doesn’t love a good ankle boot? They practically go with any fall outfit you could put together. For those of you on the shorter side, these boots will be your best friend. They hit at the perfect spot without overpowering your smaller stance.
14. Snake Skin Boots
Not everyone is a fan of snakes, but everyone can get behind the (faux) snake skin boot trend. Snake skin is super trendy for the fall, but can be a little intimidating to wear if you never have before. The easiest way to incorporate it into an outfit is through stylish boots! Give it a try and see if you don’t end up loving it by the end of the night.
Get the look:
15. Over The Knee Boots
These boots were made for walking, well, for the most part anyway. Everyone should have at least one pair of over the knee boots in their closets. They add a certain amount of sass to any fall outfit, or outfits in general. Hint: they should be tight enough on your leg to stay up, but not so uncomfortable that you can’t walk in them!
16. Boot Socks
We can’t forget this little accessory! Boot socks definitely make wearing boots a little more comfortable, and our feet couldn’t be more grateful. Let them show at the top of tall boots to add a little something extra to your outfit. Consider color-coding them with the rest of your outfit for best results!
17. Leopard Everything
Leopard print always comes back in style, so you will want to have at least one leopard-printed item in your wardrobe at all times! If you’re not sure whether or not you can pull off the look (you definitely can!), start with something simple, like a scarf. If this was the news you were waiting for, then don’t be afraid to go bold with a head-to-toe look!
18. Fringe Skirts
Don’t let your fear of fringe keep you from this fall fashion trend. This look can be styled in so many ways, so there is a look for everyone! The fringe skirt will be a hit no matter where you go. Let it be the statement piece, or style it so it complements the entire outfit. The main advice we can give is to give it a try before you judge it.
19. Sweater Vests
This is not your grandpa’s sweater vest. This closet staple recently got an upgrade and we are loving it! This fall essential is so cute that you will want to wear it everywhere. With a cute sweater vest, you can achieve a pulled-together look easily and effortlessly. Plus, it can double as a jacket on those cooler fall days.
20. Lavender Sweaters
If you thought lavender was only for spring, think again. This fall, bring lavender back into your wardrobe. Lavender sweaters are the perfect way to mesh two of fall’s favorite trends. Not only will you be looking stylish, but you’ll also be staying warm.
21. Velvet Midi Skirts
Midi skirts are the most comfortable fall fashion trend. They are flattering on everyone and really easy to style. Pair yours with an oversized sweater to give off cozy vibes. Tuck in a bodysuit for a more sleek and sophisticated look. Seriously, you can’t go wrong with a midi skirt for the fall.
Capes will be your new best friend this fall. They are the best in-between outerwear for fall outings. They allow you more movement than a jacket, while keeping you just as warm! Capes come in many different styles, so try them on to see which works the best for you.
23. Denim Jacket
A denim jacket is fall styling 101. If you do not have one yet, what are you waiting for? It’s such a versatile piece of clothing. Pick a color (denim has so many washes), choose a style and start wearing it! Use it as an actual jacket or wrap it around your waist in case the weather changes unexpectedly.
24. Faux Leather Jacket
Leather jackets just aren’t for brooding, bad boys anymore. They are a fall fashion trend for women this season. Look at the different styles to decide which one will work the best for you. Leather jackets are super chic and great for any occasion. Hint: they will mold to your body after a while to create a more form-fitting look!
25. Trench Coat
Trench coats always manage to give outfits a polished look. Normally a khaki color, they are a great neutral that will effortlessly pair with anything. Belt them in the back to show off your shape, or keep them buttoned up to help ward off the fall chill. This is a classic item that you will definitely want to make a part of your fall wardrobe!
