How excited are we all that fall has finally arrived! (Well Florida is always late to the game, but it’s in the 80s at least and not the 90s anymore…😝). New trends for fall are popping up everywhere and I’m definitely loving a few of them! I wanted to create a “gallery” of sorts of what has caught my eye. What do you think? Do you buy into the trends or let them pass you by knowing it will only last one season? Below are the top 6 trends I have seen in stores lately.
Velvet is one trend I’m loving this year. Most of you might know one of my greatest passions in life is showing horses. Velvet piping has shown up recently in show clothes, so I figured it was going to be a hot trend in the regular fashion world this upcoming season! My favorites are velvet accessories, but I’ve seen a couple of velvet tops I would try also. I currently own the blue velvet flats – so comfy! And want to order the velvet sneakers, but what color? Decisions, decisions. 🙂
I think the balloon sleeve trend is beautiful…. in moderation. I love the pink sweater below. It comes in multiple colors and I’m excited to head to the mall and check it out in person soon. I’m also considering the printed sleeve top below. All the tops/jacket listed below are “in moderation” meaning this trend does go to the extreme if you do an online search! Think huge sleeves that serve no functional purpose other than for maybe a halloween costume? Perhaps I’m too conservative. 🙂
Another trend that is beautiful in moderation. If the sleeves carry too far down your hand, all I envision are dirty sleeves and food stains! Thankfully I found several options below that do not fall into that category. The printed top comes in 2 colors (black and olive) and although the sleeve part doesn’t carry far down your hand, the “tie” portion is a little longer. I’d love to try petite sizing and see how it fits. The rose colored blouse is my favorite — another one I’m excited to try at the mall later this week! I love the sweaters listed below also.
A fall staple in my book! Probably my favorite. I’ll buy plaid in just about anything. Tops, pants, scarves, shoes, bags – whatever! I have the pants shown below – they are a little thicker/wool-like, so I haven’t worn them yet, but plan to shortly now that it’s cooling down a bit! I love the scarf and vest also, but gotta wait for winter in FL (boo). The skirt is on my wish list also!
Another great fall staple! I have leopard cardigans, flats, and scarves in my closet that I’ve owned for years and have no intention of parting with them. The scarf below is my absolute favorite. It’s only $19 and a workhorse in my closet during the fall/winter months! The clutch is $45 and on my wish list. I have an older scallop trim version of the flats below. They are the same print, but a round toe, and also a work horse! The phone case is the type I buy every time I update my case… so this might be my next one? 🙂 And the cardigan below is the newest version of 2 other cardigans I have in my closet from seasons years ago.
The colors. Probably the most fun part of a new season. Pantone is our “color genie” and releases the forecast color palettes for spring and fall seasons every year. From what I can tell, retailers are having the most fun with the reds & pinks so far. Without choosing a category, the items below are my favorites so far in the colors above – and on my wish list! 🙂
