It isn’t even halfway into summer yet in North America but lets be honest, a lot of us are already daydreaming about fall. The crisp air, pumpkin season, and new fall fashion has most of us excited for the autumn season! Soon it will be time to wrap up in cozy styles and head out on the town for some festive fall activities. This happens to me every year and I find myself making purchases for cooler weather attire and totally neglecting my summer wardrobe! Oops.
The thing is, when you’re able to layer clothing you have more fun putting together beautiful pieces for that perfect look. It’s cool enough for interesting boots, but warm enough not to be stuck in a parka the entire season. You can mix warm weather attire with cold weather attire and make it look incredible. Think boots and a floral dress, or a silk dress with a long wool jacket.
This fall, a few staple pieces have already come into style and aren’t going anywhere any time soon. Some it girls are already wearing funky utility boots with their summer dresses, and oversized jackets on the more cooler mornings. Other fashion items are joining us again from last year; long jackets are back. The look women are going for this fall are 90’s inspired styles as we’ve been seeing lately. Sleek silhouettes, wild pops of color, and skin tight neutrals doubled with oversized jackets are making their way to the fall runways.
So what should you be looking for while shopping online or in store so you can keep up with the fashionable gals? Opt for longer hems, oversized outdoor wear, and bold colors and textures like patent leather and tweed. We’re going back in time to the 70’s, 90’s and into the future as well this fall!
1. The Oversized Blazer
One of the biggest trends on the fall runways is the oversized suit or blazer. Usually checkered, or made out of tweed it is the perfect carefree piece to throw on top of an outfit. It looks beautifully put together without really trying. We’re seeing a lot of belted oversized blazers adding a hint of masculinity to a feminine silhouette. The blazers often have big shoulders, so it looks like we’re going back to the 80’s and 90’s on this one. It isn’t the first time masculine styles were paired with dainty ones, and this trend isn’t going away any time soon.
2. The Ankle Bootie
What’s more versatile than a cute ankle bootie? They’re everywhere just in time for fall 2019 and we’re LOVING THEM! These go from day to night in a breeze. Ankle booties are gorgeous with a pair of ankle jeans or cut off jeans for a cool girl daytime look, and with a pop of color they can take a plain jean outfit to “wow”! Pair ankle boots with a flowy floral dress, or a satin gown and head out on the town to turn some heads. Snakeskin, patent leather, and texture is in. We’re also seeing bright colored statement booties!
3. The Oversized Denim Jacket
Obviously as we’ve gathered by now, the trend for fall 2019 are laid back pieces resulting in a “model off duty” sort of vibe. The oversized jean jacket is not an exception! Denim will always be in style and this easy breezy look is everywhere right now. The oversized jean jacket is going over plain t shirt and jeans, cute crop tops, floral mini dresses, and even textured turtleneck sweaters.
4. The Micro Bag
OMG these are so cute! All over the runways we’re seeing this adorable micro bag popping up. Whether it’s a cross body or a simple handle this bag is being paired with simple and elegant looks. And actually, the mini bag screams luxury; if you can’t fit more than your wallet and phone in it, perhaps you’re wealthy enough for a personal assistant to handle the rest? It’s certainly more carefree and less stressful than carrying around a huge unorganized tote! Anyway, we’re loving this trend and hoping it stays!
5. The Bodysuit
This is something you most definitely need in your closet this upcoming fall. One of the simplest pieces, it oozes sophistication and is effortlessly chic. If you’re tired of your shirts fitting oddly when tucked in to your pants, or going up every time you lift your arms, the bodysuit is for you. It looks sleek and gorgeous paired with high rise jeans, work pants or a skirt. The bodysuit makes for a seamless look without trying.
You can find simple basic bodysuits for everyday wear with jeans or wide pants, and then there are ruffled bodysuits, lace bodysuits; a huge variety, no matter what you’re into or what look you’re going for. Another throwback from the 90’s.
6. Mom Jeans
This brings us to mom jeans. They’ve been in since last year, and we won’t be saying “goodbye” to mom jeans this fall either. A look borrowed from the 90’s, mom jeans are high waisted jeans that can range in style. There are a bit looser options like boyfriend/girlfriend jeans, or a tighter fit skinny mom jean. Either way you go, they’re the “it” denim this season.
7. The Loooooong Coat
A long wool jacket is everything this fall. And you know another thing? The longer the better! The hems on the runway are grazing the floor and it is majestic. This look takes us back to Friends with its effortlessly cozy and fashionable aesthetic.
8. Neon EVERYTHING
Neon isn’t just for little girls, as this trend is proving. Neon can be worn with sophistication and style, and is incredibly hot this season! The Kardashians have been toting neon shoes and dresses for some time, and now neon is showing up on runways and online fashion stores everywhere. Neon sneakers, heels, sleek dresses and jackets in all types of textures are in, but you’ll notice more and more jelly style neon shoes out there this fall. So get yourself a pair!
9. The Flowy Floral Dress
This look is so chic and airy- it’s definitely a French girl style. What’s quicker than slipping on a gorgeous floral dress, pairing it with white sneaks and heading out the door to the farmer’s market or a road trip? We’re also loving the contrast of floral dresses with black utility boots this fall.
10. Cool Pair Of Sunnies
The sun can still be glaring in the autumn season, especially if you’re into heading out to the farms to pick some fresh in-season fruits and vegetables, or enjoying an outdoor restaurant meal around sunset. You need a fresh pair of sunglasses! So what’s in? AGAIN we travel back in time with trending sunglasses! 70’s large frame sunnies are in, clear sunglasses are still hanging around, and 90’s mini skinny sunglasses are here to stay from summer. We’re seeing sleek black and brown tortoise shell, but also pink hues. And as always, the classic cat eye isn’t going anywhere!
Which fall 2019 trends do you like the best? Do you love ’em or hate ’em? We personally love what the 2019 runways and street style is showing us. This fall the trends are simple yet they stand out, and they’re complex yet effortlessly chic! Now that we’re “in the know” let’s get out there and add to our already overflowing closets!
