40 Fashion Trends That Will Be Huge This Fall

High-Waisted Jeans

High-waisted shorts have been our summer staples, but the colder months don’t mean we have to ditch the flattering waistline. High-waisted jeans are just as hot in chilly weather. 

Statement Earrings

Statements necklaces and rings have been hogging the spotlight far too long. Now is the time to clear some space for the statement earring and leave the rest of the bling at home. Large, attention-grabbing earrings are the accessory of the season, so make sure to stock up.

Burnt Orange

The orangey-red rust color of 2018 has been replaced by burnt orange. This bold hue is bright, energetic, and not afraid to make a statement. Burnt orange jumpsuits, dresses, trousers, and sweaters are must-haves this fall.

Corduroy

Fall is the ideal time to break out your favorite pair of cords. The velvety fabric is warm and cozy, making it perfect for the colder months. Whether you rock wide-leg corduroy pants, a trendy corduroy blazer, or a classic corduroy skirt, you’re sure to make a statement.

Ruffles

A long-sleeve ruffle blouse or a sheer ruffle maxi dress will cure your cold-weather blues. Tiered frills are dainty, feminine, and easy to dress up or down. Extra points if your frills embellish your wrist, neck, or waist.

Flared Jeans

The '70s are the main inspiration for most of the fall season’s trends, and flared jeans is one we are happy to welcome back. The freeing, loose fabric is a nice change from the tight skinny we’ve been rocking for years, creating a chill vibe perfect for the months of PSL and crisp air.

All Things Plaid

Plaid is a natural fall pattern. Heck, it’s on most scarecrows! Granted, most of us have plaid that’s fall colors like red and orange, but this year, trends show that plaid of every color will be “in.” We may just stick with the fall colors since they are some of the best shades.

Booties

Booties are almost always in style, meaning your booties from last season will also work this year! Bonus points if your booties are slouchy or have some ruching because mixing and matching trends is tres chic.

Long Cardigans

Too warm for a coat and too cold for bare arms? Cardigans are the solution. Long cardigans are perfect for fall weather. We’re talking about ones that go past your hips, and sometimes even further! They’re warm and comfy.

Lob

Say goodbye to the long locks that clung to your neck all summer and create a fresh, easy look with the lob (long bob). The kind-of-short-but-also-kind-of-long cut will be a welcome addition to all of the scarfs and wide-brimmed hats you’ll be rocking as it gets colder.

Straight-Leg Denim

This new denim fit is inspired by ‘60s and ‘70s fashion. The long, straight-leg denim is rigid, high-rise, and cropped at the ankle. They pair perfectly with heels, sneakers, or boots, and transition seamlessly from fall to winter.

Velvet

Velvet blazers and dresses will keep you on-trend this holiday season. Royal blue, forest green, burnt orange, and ruby red are warm hues that will complement your fall wardrobe.

'70s Brown

Thank goodness the styles of the '70s are coming back. The patterns aren’t something we want to see again. However, the colors? They weren’t too bad on their own. The shade of brown worn in the 70s was unique. It almost had yellow undertones, and we haven’t seen anything like it since…well, the '70s.

Loose Silhouettes

Loose and layered silhouettes are all-the-rage and will be a trend you see everywhere this autumn. You have full permission to ditch your skin-tight bodysuits and curve-hugging pencil skirts for airy and flowing fabrics!

Pleats

Pleated skirts are so in this fall that it’s practically criminal. Short, pleated skirts inspired by the classic school uniform and the much edgier car-wash pleats are the perfect option for a fun fall outfit. Pair with thigh- or knee-high boots, and you’re good to go.

Knit Sweaters

It doesn’t have to be something holiday themed! Novelty knit sweaters are just tops that have some kind of design – whether it’s an animal or a unique pattern that stands out. Novelty knit sweaters always go better with solid color garments, but the color of those items is up to you.

Leather

Leather can be uncomfortable, so we suggest waiting until temperatures drop. That way you can don your leather pants without feeling uncomfortably sweaty. Alternatively, you could wear a leather jacket.

Capes

You read that right – capes. Capes are trending everywhere from fashion to weddings. If you won’t be hopping on this trend-train, you’re not alone. However, if you want rock a cape, you’ll definitely look chic.

Chunky Sneakers

Clunky kicks are comfortable and functional—which is why they’re garnered so much attention. The ‘80s shoe trend can be worn with any outfit, for any length of time. And they come in various silhouettes and color schemes, combining streetwear with fashion.

Florals

Spring just went, but don’t put your florals away just yet. You can still wear florals throughout the fall season. Personally, we would wear garments that are fall-colored but use a floral design like a maroon dress with peach and white flowers.

Light Liner

Usually, the winter is about darkness, but this year, it’s about the natural look. In makeup, the “natural” look is becoming incredibly popular. Instead of pulling out the black eyeliner, reach for a brown shade. This color can still open the eyes and create a dynamic look without looking too heavy.

Natural Hair

We no longer need to spend hours taming our hair every morning of the cold season. Embracing your natural hair texture, no matter how curly or straight, is the hottest hair trend of the fall. Bonus: the lack of heating and styling will keep your hair healthy even with the dry air.

Stunning Hats

Along with printed scarves, stunning hats are in season. A stunning hat is pretty much anything that makes a statement and completes your outfit. Most fashion designers will suggest that you don’t wear a print scarf and a statement hat together, however.

Layering

When is layering not a trend? Well, this year, it’s about unique layering. Many runways featured jackets under coats, but this may be something best left for the colder months. Others featured jeans under a dress. We’re on the fence about this one, but we’re sure some people can pull it off well.

Puffer Coats

There’s good reason why puffer coats are sold, purchased, and worn each and every year—they’re practical. And with all of the updates that have been made to this classic jacket, it’s easy to understand why they’re a fall and winter staple.

Animal Print

Any and all animal print! Many fashion experts think that cheetah and zebra will be some of the most common prints. With these designs, you can work it into your normal fall fashion by wearing the prints as an accent item. Many people choose to wear an animal print jacket or belt, and they look absolutely stylish!

Mid-Length Skirts

Mid-length skirts are perfect for this season. They’re not too short to freeze you out as the temps drop and not too long to get in the way when you’re going about your day. You can also play with the type of skirt from pleated to pencil.

Power Red

When we say, “power red,” we mean it. This shade is stark and surprising, but it’s meant to be like that. This shade is easy to wear. You can don a jacket, shirt, or skirt in the shade, and then pair with jeans or something black. Denim is an excellent contrast for power red.

Chunky Scarves

Oversized scarves are a seasonal staple. Tossing one around your neck as you run out the door will keep you looking effortlessly chic and incredibly warm. Wool, cashmere, and knit are our favorite fabrics.

Oversized Sweaters

Since layering is in season, it can be a little tough wearing multiple fitted items. Oversized sweaters work well with layering, which is why they’re also coming into style. Wear an oversized sweater with a pair of jeans, a skirt, or pants, and you’ll be an instant fashion icon.

Faux Fur

Faux fur is going to be everywhere. Most red carpet looks put the faux fur on a coat. While some chose to put fur on the cuff of the sleeves, others put it around the collar. Then again, you could go full fashionista and get a full faux fur coat.  

Natural Lips

Last year, it was all about dark lips, but it’s changing this year. Put away the vampiric lipstick and reach for the lip balm. Natural lips are perfect for this season, but that doesn’t mean you can’t wear lipstick. Nudes and lighter colors can still be used liberally.

Magenta

The fashion world loves pinks, and magenta is the shade for this season. It’s a rich, bright pink that can be brought to life as an accent color. Hats, scarves, and gloves are all perfect items to wear in this shade. You can pair it with browns and caramels to make your fall outfit pop.

Modesty

Low-cut tops may have been popular recently, but not anymore. Now, it’s all about modesty. Fashion designers are ditching the low V-necks for button-up tops with all of the buttons clasped. We have to say that we’re pretty happy about this trend to be coming back.

Bronze Shadow

This universally flattering shadow is always a good idea, but this fall it’s the main makeup attraction. It can be worn day or night, is easy to keep simple or make dramatic, and compliments every eye color. There’s no downside to this trend.

Summer Dresses

Don’t ditch your summer dress because it’s winter! If it’s too cold to walk around with bare legs, throw on some tights to stay warm. Then, wear a jacket or cardigan to protect your arms! Finally, conclude your outfit with a cute pair of booties.

Sock Boots

Sock boots fit snugly around your ankle and can be worn under straight-leg jeans and wide-leg trousers. And the best part is they come in many different shapes and styles. Pointed toes, chunky heels, platform wedges, and playful patterns offer versatility and diversity.

Statement Purses

Too often, purses are neglected. We carry the same tired handbag around for months without a second thought. But like the rest of our wardrobe, our purses should reflect the season. This fall, opt for a textured, detailed, or embellished purse.

Chenille Sweaters

Chenille sweaters and cardigans are making a much-needed reappearance. The soft, textured fabric is thick, yet wispy. If you value your comfort, you need this textile ASAP. It’ll tempt you to ditch your scratchy wool and uncomfortable cashmere.

Ruching Outfits

Ruching is the way to describe a garment that has the fabric intentionally gathered or bunched up in one area. It can help give the item a little shape or act as a design. Ruching was seen on several dresses and tops, but you can wear it wherever you think it looks best.
