As the seasons change, so do fashion styles and trends. It is a huge part of the fashion world to see what designers and people find to be in-style at a particular time of the year. This is commonly where new trends emerge, or older ones re-emerge with a fun twist. This Fall of 2019, as the year is shortly coming to an end, we’ve found our favorite new Fall Fashion Trends that we simply can’t get enough of. All of these colors, styles and accessories that have made their hits on runways globally are sure to please!
Itty Bitty Bag Committee → The tiny purses and handbags that have debuted in recent fashion shows may have many of us puzzled. How can you fit all your essentials into one tiny, adorable bag? Well, it’s not really made to house everything your typical day-to-day handbag will. Small purses are more so a statement piece to finish off an outfit and to add some fun to your wardrobe. We’ve seen many that are exquisite shapes and colors. Not only have many in Hollywood already stepped up on this trend, but they honestly play a super fun role in finalizing your look! I mean, all you really need these days is your phone, a credit card and some chapstick, right?!
Capes, Not Drapes → Capes are sooo big right now in the fashion world. Whether they are long, short, tied around the neck, with buttons, or over the head, these capes make a wonderful staple in your closet for fall fashion. Capes (and oven ponchos) have been making steady comebacks after a few years. Each time they do, more twists and turns are incorporated into the designs. It’s perfect for a quick outing in the city, or if you’re looking for that extra warmth and style without a bulky jacket.
To Work, or Not to Work? → Although some may find boiler suits remind them of work, the ones we’ve seen on the runways in recent fashion shows have proved that they are just awesome. You can dress them up with a pair of heels, or down with some cute sneakers or sandals. Common colors of boiler suits include shades of greens, browns, creams and many more. Although a boiler suit may not be suitable for every occasion, that’s not to say there aren’t times where you could totally rock one. These are super convenient to have for a shopping trip, a day out with the gals, or even a casual evening out for drinks.
Meow? Rawr? → Yes! Our beloved feline prints are back in action! Designers all over the world have recently started reincorporating feline prints into their designs. Prints of this nature tend to die down then come back a few years later, and we’re here for it. You’ll find plenty of leopard, tiger and cheetah type prints in many of this years fall fashion. When done in the right way, it can make your outfit one to remember. As always, be sure to stay cruelty free!
Stay Shady → Sunglasses are an essential part of every person’s wardrobe. Whether you purchase sunglasses or eyeglasses to protect your eyes or as a fashion piece, they truly are an extremely important part of your life! This fall, we’re seeing a lot of square sunglass styles being worn on runways and shown all over the web. Square sunglasses, whether male, female, or unisex, are extremely versatile and can add that pop of ‘tude you were looking for to complete your outfit. Besides, who ever said you can’t wear sunglasses indoors? Wear them out in the city, at the park, or even at an event or club at a night out.
Food, Water, and Denim → Now it’s time to get back to our beloved essentials. These include denim’s. In particular, we’ve seen tons of light-wash denim featured for this Fall 2019. Light wash denim jeans and outwear was a hit in many men’s lines. Not to say women didn’t sport their designer denim outfits either. We’ve seen a huge rise in the denim-on-denim trend as well. Men can coordinate some awesome light-wash (distressed too) denim pants with a fun fall jacket for that day/night out. We think a denim top and denim bottom on a male is super cool and trendy for the season. Don’t forget that a light wash will still show off that tan that is slowly fading from the summer months, and in all honesty, we never want those to end!
Knitted Tops Permitted → Aaaaah, yes. Knits, knits and more knits. Knit sweaters and tops of all kinds have debuted fashion shows all around the world this year. We’ve seen plenty in the past, but the new twists are something to be seen. Not only do knitted sweaters and shirts look amazing on both men and women, they truly make your fall fashion looks super cozy and put together. Paired with some boots or fall sneakers, you really can’t go wrong. Play with colors, styles and textures and pick yourself up a few new tops for this autumn season. Knits are truly wonderful to wear in just about any occasion as they are highly versatile!
With so many more fashion trends emerging every season, it can be hard to stay on top of what is in-style. Typically, many things never truly go out of style unless it is a new fad. If something does happen to go out of style, it usually tends to circulate and make its way back around in upcoming years. Invest in some trendy clothing and buy good quality so you can swap with years to come. Who knows, you may even be the person to bring something back into style that is considered to be outdated!
