If you know me, you know I like to be prepped when it comes to my fashion trends and wardrobe (the rest of my life, not so much). With that being said, I’ve been doing my due diligence in investigating all of the upcoming fall fashion trends to get a headstart on all my shopping and curation. I like to start early to take an inventory of what I need, what I can donate, and what I already have. Although trends are subjective, it’s always good to get a headstart on buying trend pieces, to avoid things selling out or being overused. I also like to use trends as a general idea for creating my outfits with my personal touch.
Below are some of my favorite trends that have been either reported or shown during the Fall/Winter Ready To Wear Shows. What I love is that most of these fall fashion trends are all about practicality and can be worn in any situation and with any style. I’ll also show you some of my favorite examples to give you an idea as to how I see this trend being worn, courtesy of some sparkling fashion influencers and icons.
Fall Fashion Trends: Practical and Chic
It’s no secret that I love me color, print, and everything in between. I also adore pieces that are unique and one-of-a-kind. The problem is that sometimes these pieces can get old very quickly or become difficult to wear season after season. Thankfully, one of the latest trends to sweep fashion is practicality. This can also be quiet luxury if you want to think of it that way.
The purpose of this trend is to put together basics or simple pieces and create a cohesive capsule wardrobe that can mix and match. Although it’s chic, they’re practical pieces that won’t hurt or be uncomfortable to wear. Denim jeans, white t-shirts, trousers, and sneakers are some of the key pieces that are practical but chic when put together. Keep this in mind before buying those loud printed pieces this fall, because simple is sometimes better.
Fall Fashion Trends: The Power of Red
Contrary to the above fall fashion trends, this is all about packing a punch. The color red is a vibrant hue that is royal, traditional, and confident all in one. If you’re a minimalist, the red color can easily be incorporated into jewelry, accessories, or shoes. If you’re a maximalist, you’ll have no problem rocking a head-to-toe red outfit. Either way, a strong red color is the perfect hue to give your wardrobe a refresh this fall and to add just a smidge of color into a typically neutral wardrobe.
Fall Fashion Trends: See-Through Pieces
It’s no secret that sheer was hot the last couple of seasons. Thankfully, the trend is staying firm through the fall and winter seasons to give us some more action. The see-through trend can be incorporated in various ways from sheer materials, mesh, crochet, or open-knit items. The purpose is to give you a layered look that lets you embrace your underneath layers. Stock up on cute sheer long-sleeve tops or maxi dresses for a glamorous fall season.
Fall Fashion Trends: Metallics Madness
As long as people continue dressing like it’s the Y2K era, the longer metallics will continue to grace us. Metallics everywhere are going even harder in the fall. Don’t be surprised when you see metallic trench coats and metallic knee-high boots become staples in the fall/winter because everyone is simply in love with the shiny stuff. Metallics don’t have to be overwhelming, you can simply opt for some metallic manicures or jewelry to fulfill that little shiny itch.
Fall Fashion Trends: Whatever Your Core Is
Like it or not, people are looking to find something that describes them and their preferences. Although a lot of people hate talking about cores or niche groups, it’s sometimes nice to have a word that encapsulates what you mean. By no means should you confine yourself to one box, but it’s nice to be able to search up ‘cottagecore’ or something along those lines to find others who share your same love.
This trend of core styling isn’t going anywhere as long as preferences remain and people find their true aesthetic and style. You can have multiple ‘cores’ and ‘aesthetics’, because, at the end of the day, humans are complex creatures. But don’t feel like it’s “wrong” to have a core that describes your personality and likes, this is simply an easier way of finding your tribe and who you are within. Out of all the fall fashion trends, this one is the most personal because it can be whatever core or aesthetic you want. Take some time to research the current aesthetics out there to find the one that truly represents you.
