The leaves are changing. The temperatures are dropping. And with Halloween and Thanksgiving right around the corner, all these signs can only indicate one thing…Autumn has commenced once again!
And if you haven’t already done so, it’ll soon be time to bust out your winter coat, scarves, and hats.
Still, there’s plenty of autumn left to soak up before the snow falls. So, what are some fall trends you can rock in the coming weeks?
Here are 6 fall fashion trends to enjoy this season!
- Timeless Fall Colors
Fall fashion is all about embracing the changing colors and weather. And as far as colors go, there’s always been an emphasis on red, brown, yellow, and orange.
Lots of women tend to dye their hair darker this time of year. Many will blend red hues with chestnut or chocolate coloring, for example. This is also the time of year to swap out your pastel shadows and lip gloss for brown palettes and red lip stains.
This is the time of year to pack away your white and pastel-colored statement pieces. But that’s not to say you can’t incorporate a little white in your fall wardrobe, either. White and beige camisoles are some basic items that’ll help you stay stylish this fall.
Rust, Mustard Yellow, & Magenta
We’re also seeing a lot more magenta with 2018 fall fashion trends. Magenta lipstick and magenta eyeshadow are popular fall makeup looks you can have fun with this autumn.
Mustard yellow is another statement-making fall color you can work into your wardrobe. For example, mustard yellow platform shoes or clutches make great ensembles.
If you take a look at this product, you’ll see a strong presence of magenta, mustard yellow, rusty red, and maroon. Combining any combination of these colors can also work for any outfit — casual or formal.
Fuchsia is another popular color you can expect to see more of this fall. So, if you’re not feeling a dark red or purple lipstick, swap them out for hot pink instead!
- Plaid Overcoats
If you’re looking to splurge on a new coat, now is the time to do so before the frost arrives! There are a lot of plaid overcoats with fall 2018 fashion trends. And they’re the perfect option for business and casual wear alike.
Most plaid overcoats this season appear as if they’re designed for men. But many women’s clothing designers have feminized them for both catwalks and stores. You can expect to find a lot of plaid overcoats in gray, red, black, and beige.
Some coats are longer and have broader shoulder padding and sleeves than others. You can find others with more defined silhouettes, depending on your personal preference. Whatever style you choose for your overcoat, be sure to pair it with matching mittens, scarf, and hat!
- Billowy & Animal Print Dresses
This fall season, you can expect to see a lot of clothing articles reminiscent of the 1960’s and 1970’s. Billowy, prairie-style floral dresses are in this season. They’re the perfect choice for going apple picking or out to a restaurant.
The majority of these dresses come long-sleeved and fall just below the knee. Although billowy, ones made with silk and chiffon are very fitting. Look for ones with brown-blush palettes and pair them with brown heeled boots.
If prairie-dresses aren’t your style, never fear! There’s more sleek attire with 2018 fall fashion trends. And we’re seeing a homage to the 1980’s with lots of dresses this season.
Whether long or short, animal print dresses are in again this season. So are neon-hued, holographic ruffled dresses. Pair your dress with a soft leather jacket and you’ll be sure to turn heads.
Additionally, animal print coats are in style this autumn and winter. So, if you’re a fan of zebra, cheetah, or leopard prints, you’re in luck and can rock a printed coat all winter long!
- Printed Silk Scarves
If you’re going to rock a plaid overcoat this autumn, there’s nothing better than pairing it with a silk scarf.
Printed silk scarves a classic choice making a big comeback this autumn. They’re perfect for outdoor and indoor wear. And some popular patterns we’re seeing are plaid, polka-dots, and floral. We’re also seeing lots of printed scarves made with loose, fringed ends.
You don’t have to worry about matching your printed silk scarf with your coat, either. This autumn, fall trends are all about mixing and clashing…in small doses.
- Colored Sunglasses
Just because there may be leaves or snow on the ground doesn’t mean you can’t wear sunglasses. This season, put your standard brown or black sunglasses away. Swap them for something more colorful.
Though they may seem more appropriate for the spring and summer, tinted sunglasses are in. Rectangular, round, and oval-shaped frames are particularly popular. And many designers are using rosy, sky blue, and orange lenses instead of black.
- Layer Up!
Not only should you wear layers to block out the gusty cold winds this autumn and fall. If we’ve learned anything from the hottest catwalks this season, layering up is IN!
Parkas, overcoats, puffy jackets – you name it. The key to looking stylish this season is to make sure you stay cozy and warm.
Underneath your jacket, make a statement by wearing a solid-colored cardigan… and throw on a printed silk scarf while you’re at it!
