At long last, fall is here. We’re now in one of the best seasons when it comes to dressing for fashion. Gone are the days of walking stiff as a board in the humid summer air in order to avoid getting sweat marks on your dress. Gone is that heavy, oily sensation you feel on your face that you know is your makeup melting into your pores. Autumn is here, and so is the arrival of new fall fashion and some gorgeous new trends that you’ll be sure to love this season. Here are 9 fall fashion trends you’ll love playing with this season:
1. One-Shoulder Sleeve Dress
The one-shoulder dress has taken over as the number one dress trend for this season, showing up on the runways of numerous designers including Stella McCartney, Missoni and Proenza Schouler. This style of dress gives you the best of both worlds: One side gets to show off some skin and your stylish accessories without any sleeves getting in the way, while the other side gets to stay perfectly warm and cozy. Win-win! Get the look at ASOS.
2. Patterned Tights
Autumn doesn’t have to mean pants-only in terms of leg wear. How about some fierce tights to spruce up your outfit? Tights of all styles will be available for you to strut down the street in this season. As far as fall colors go, we’re seeing tons of gorgeous tights in a fall burgundy. Take your pick from fishnet, Swiss-dot, floral or even zebra patterned tights! Get the look at Nordstrom.
3. Camel Colored Coat
Thanks to Burberry’s classic trench, camel-colored coats have become somewhat of a fashion staple. This season, however, you’ll see them in more than just trench coat form. Try this gorgeous shade in an oversized, calf length style for a statement piece that will flawlessly complement your everyday look. Get the look at Topshop.
4. High-Waisted Pants
Please, before you start to tremble in fear, let me say this: high-waisted pants can actually be very flattering when done right. When the pants start at the waist and not at the hips, a slimming effect takes place, elongating your legs and putting the focus on the smallest part of your body- your waist. High waisted pants can also accentuate your butt. It’s all in finding the right cut, so make sure you don’t rush things when shopping for this hot fall trend. Get the look at Madewell or Nordstrom.
5. White Blouse
Simplicity at its finest. The classic white blouse made a regular appearance amidst the Victorian era inspired fashion that debuted in various fall/winter 2015 collections. This is by far the easiest fall trend to rock this season and it’s also the most versatile. Tuck your blouse into a pair of high-waisted pants or a brocade mini skirt for a look that is chic all over. Get the look at Nastygal.
6. Car Wash Pleated Skirt
Weird name, amazing look. This style was seen everywhere, from the Tommy Hilfiger show in New York to Christian Dior in Paris. It’s a unique skirt shape but can be worn in all kinds of fabrics- from tweed to leather to sheer mesh- so give it a go this season and watch the style compliments roll in. Get the look at Kit and Ace.
7. The Choker
Remember those stretchy, plastic chokers we all wore when we were kids? Well, they’ve come back in style, this time with a bit more sophistication to them. Celebs from Kim Kardashian to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley have been seen rocking delicate, ribbon chokers around their necks, but if you’re not fully on board with this trend, there’s a second option: turtleneck dickies. These cozy inserts are the warmer version of the choker and were a big hit on the runways. Compatible with almost any type of outfit, you can pair them with anything from an oversized knit sweater to a sexy dress. Get the look at Nastygal.
8. Mini Skirt
For a slightly flirtier look, try out a fun mini skirt, which saw a huge rise in popularity on the fall/winter 2015 runways. Louis Vuitton, Carven and St. Laurent all ushered different versions of the mini down their runways, putting the spotlight on different luxurious fabrics. We especially love camel colored minis for a great fall color. Rock a mini in either velvet, suede, leather, plaid or brocade for an on point fall look. Get the look at Brandy Melville.
9. Over-The-Knee Boots
Finally, a boot trend that is sexy and practical for the upcoming colder months. Designer brands presented us with every style of high boot known to man on the fall/winter 2015 runways- from sexy leather lace up to boho suede. No matter what your style, you’re guaranteed to find a boot of your liking in this season’s very diverse selection of over-the-knee or thigh-high boots. We love a little lace-up action to dress up a high boot. Get the look at Go Jane.
