You know how fashion trends go. If you wait until the actual season arrives, you are already behind. That’s why it’s always a good idea to not only know what’s in and what’s out months ahead, but to also make some purchases early too. That way, you can get in on some hard-to-beat deals.
If you’ve been wondering what’s in store for the fall season, you don’t have to wait. Here are a few things that you should buy with your very next paycheck. Just so you’ll be fashionably prepared.
Typically, neon is seen as a color that is worn when the weather is warm and the sun in shining. However, it’s actually one of the hottest color trends for the upcoming fall season.
If you’re in the market for a leather jacket, skip the black and brown ones that are hanging on the rack. Go with one that is a much brighter color instead. It’s one way to combat the dreariness that tends to come along with cooler weather.
Grey is a common fall color. But rather than (only) wearing it with white or brown, add a soft hue like mint green.
Do you need a new coat. This year, the fashion forecast is recommending a shearling one. That’s awesome if you live in a climate where there’s a lot of snow because shearling coats have the ability to keep you extra warm.
Lots of brown
Brown is another classic fall color. But this year, the more you have—and the more shades of it that you are able to wear at one time—the better.
Chunky knit sweater dress
Remember those chunky knit sweaters that used to seem so corny? Guess what? They’ll all the rage now!
All black outfit
If you read about fall fashion trends in some of the hottest fashion magazines, one thing that most of them will say is you can never get enough black. Just make sure that when you decide to wear all black that it’s all the same shade. Otherwise, you won’t end up with the dramatic effect that you’re after.
A gray suit
If you want a suit for work, a black one is fine. It’s also pretty common and predictable. How about a grey one instead? It’s fashion-forward and the styling possibilities are literally endless.
A mini skirt (and tights)
Mini skirts are another big trend for fall. If you’re worried that you’ll be too cold, just another another trend to your mini: a pair of opaque tights.
If you’ve secretly always wanted a pair of furry heels but you wondered if they’d be “a bit much”, you’ll be glad to hear that this year, when it comes to footwear, the more fur…the better.
Long gloves (of all kinds)
Of course gloves are a part of the fall and winter seasons. Just make sure that this year, you opt for the kind that are long. Up to your elbows if you can help it.
So, what is a jewelry trend for fall? Statement earrings. You’re going to see them everywhere you go so you might as well get a couple of pair now.
High-waisted flare jeans
Flare jeans are a woman’s best friend, no matter what her body type may be. And if they’re high-waisted, it can give off the illusion that your waist is pretty small (even if it’s not).
Yeah, those fall capes are hot. Not only that, but they will keep to keep you pretty warm. And as a bonus, you can find them in department stores, fashion boutiques and if you look really hard, a few thrift stores too.
Wedge leather boots
Do you want a new pair of booties to bring in the autumn season? If so, get the kind with a wedge heel. They’re another way to make you be on trend.
Faux fur stole
If you’re wondering “Now where in the heck should I go to find a fur stole”, our recommendation would be to start in your grandmother’s closet or attic. And just to be politically correct, ask her if she has any that are made out of faux fur.
The one-shoulder style has also been one that has withstood all types of weather. And if you decide to take it into the autumn season, it will work just perfectly in the form of a sweater.
Car wash pleated skirt
So why is this particular kind of skirt called a “cash wash pleated skirt”? If you’ve ever been through a drive-thru car wash before, you’ll instantly understand why.
Eras of fashion always come back around. This particular year is the year for the 70s. Flare jeans, big collar shirts, fringe accessories—the works.
A puffer coat
Another coat that will help to keep you nice and cozy is a puffer one. It’s great for casual days and ski trips.
Stacked kitten heels
They say that you learn something new every day. Well, if you’ve never heard of a stacked kitten heel before or you’ve always wondered what it looks like, here you go. The ideal flat for work. Indeed!
