Ready to prep your closet for a new season change-over? Get a glimpse into 5 of our favorite trends that are starting to hit stores for fall…

Whether you’re already missing summer sun or you can’t wait for the leaves to change colors, ready or not, fall fashion is here! After seeing the top trends hit the runway and then make their way into our stores, we’re convinced this might be the best fall yet. It was hard to narrow down our favorites!

So sit back, snuggle up, and try to decide which of these five fall trends will be making their way into your closet this season…

Trend 1: Bold Red

Don’t get us wrong, classic fall colors like burgundy and chestnut will always hold a special place in our hearts (and closets), but there’s something about the bold colors popping up this season that we’re quickly falling for…

Red is one of this season’s top ten colors, and we are totally digging it. Bright, daring, and downright beautiful, red is a fall trend you can add into your closet with confidence.

Try a statement jacket or skirt in this hue, or for a more subtle option, accessorize with red jewelry or a handbag.

Trend 2: Leopard Print

Animal print is back for another fall season and we are wild for it!

One of the reasons we love leopard print is because it’s completely comprised of neutral shades, making it easily mixed and matched with nearly any item from your wardrobe – including other prints!

You can find leopard print in tons of different pieces this season: belts, shoes, and blouses for starters. For something even bolder, pull together your look with a leopard-print faux fur coat (faux fur is trending again this fall, too!).

Trend 3: Athleisure

Athletic + Leisure = Athleisure! (AKA our favorite trend ever.)

For those of us with jam-packed days, an outfit that is comfortable, stylish, and versatile is key. With options like dressed up joggers, leather leggings, millennial pink sneakers, and suede baseball caps, going from school drop offs to date night has never been easier.

Tons of our stores carry athleisure styles! Here are are just a few: lululemon, Forever 21, Evereve, Gap, Loft, and our new store (coming soon!), Beauteous Activewear.

Trend 4: Mules

There are a lot of reasons to love mules, but we’ll let you in on one of our favorite (rarely talked about) reasons that they are our go-to shoe: They are super comfortable! No backs mean no blisters.

Try pairing this trendy sole with raw hemmed jeans or wide leg pants for an effortlessly modern look. For dressier occasions, heeled mules pair well with jumpsuits and midi skirts.

Trend 5: Jackets + Vests

A classic fall outfit combination, layering up with jackets and vests is a trend that we can always get on board with.

Outerwear layers are a simple way to add dimension and accent to any outfit. And they keep you warm, of course!

Whether your outfit needs an little oomph or you’re looking for something to bundle up in, some of our favorite layers this season are leather jackets, denim jackets, fuzzy vests, oversized cardigans, and bomber jackets. See more layering ideas here.
