Fall is upon us, and lets just say we have must have fall trends and fall looks that everyone shoult try out. Then we have fall trends and fall looks that need to remain in the past.
When checking out trends and styles is by browsing and a whole lot of window shopping. We all love a little or not so little haul, you know like spending $200 at Zara or H&M, because everything seems so damn gorgeous and perfect for that new season wardrobe. (I hope you are aware that a lot of people out here are about that wardrobe/closet refresh). I a about buying pieces that are able to transition from season to season, and transition effortlessly ( you feel me)
1) TEDDY JACKETS
Not only are these functional, but they are super cosy and right on trend. With different brands creating different designs and colours, this would be the most ideal investment for the season. Must are retailing anywhere from $40 to $110 and higher.
2) FAUX SHEARLING JACKETS
These have been in style and in fashion for the longest time. Every brand stocks them, from Levi, to Gap to American Eagle. It’s just a matter of finding the right size and being able to style yours with the right pieces. I would suggest that you get faux shearling because we do not want to promote the killing or torture of animals.
Why have something plain when you can wear something with more character. Checkered and plaid jackets, or pants are perfect to add a bit more colour and pattern. Fall is primarily dark , grey and gloomy and checkered or patterned outfits are the perfect method to brighten up your day. You can get creative with this trend, by simply wearing an accessory like a scarf, or full head to toe checkered.
3) CHUNKY SNEAKERS
Let’s admit it, chunky sneakers are here to stay. From streetwear brands to high fashion brands, this trend is proving to be season-less and proving to be ageless. It is important to note that not every chunky sneaker would be ideal for this trend. I would advise you to stick to the darker toned, and leather sneakers because we don’t want the rain to ruin a good pair of sneakers.
4) ANIMAL PRINT
Animal print has been on the runways and on the streets for a long time. This trend is absolutely favourable for fall because like the checkered , it is a way of standing out and making your style more unique and less boring. I would recommend layering an animal print item or accessorising with animal print. Another thing to note is that, not animal print trends are ideal for fall. Stick to leopard, cheetah and even snake print. Leave your zebra print dress or cow print shirt for your hot girl or hot boy summer.
5) BOMBER JACKETS
Bomber jackets are definitely my staple when it comes to style and fashion. This is an item that you can use to build your capsule wardrobe. Because of its versatile nature and the fact that you can get away with wearing this at work or on the streets. For fall, I would suggest wearing a different texture, like suede or leather. This is a perfect layering piece and I would definitely recommend investing in more than one!
