Fall Trends to Wear NOW

Friends, the fall season will soon be upon us and that means my favorite fashion season of the year is here. There is something special about the fall season – we say goodbye to shorts, flip flops, tank tops, and all the items associated with summer, and welcome the beauty of layered outfitting.

Sidenote: I always remember going back-to- school shopping as a kid/young adult and being so excited to wear my new fall clothes. The problem was waiting for true cold weather. I’m not a patient person so I would sit in school with my amazing new fall sweater and sweat because it was still 85 degrees outside. #dumb

Anyway, I want to share a couple of my favorite transitional items that are not only trendy, but super practical this season. And feel free to use the “practical” excuse to shop – it usually works for me 🙂

The cold shoulder trend. Before talking about this trend, it must be said that a man must have named this style. I can imagine trend creators sitting in a room talking about new styles, and they came up with the “cold shoulder” style and thought, what should we call this? A guy chimes in, “Uh…her shoulders look cold…how about ‘cold shoulder’?” Anyway, this is a trend that has been around for at least a year and it’s everywhere! I like it because it comes in many forms. You can wear a cold shoulder dress, top or sweater. You can have extreme cold shoulder (frozen shoulder?) or just a little hint of shoulder (chilled shoulder?). Make it your own. This trend is everywhere right now and I don’t see it going away anytime soon. If you haven’t jumped on this trend, give it a shot! Try a simple t-shirt with cold shoulders for an easy entry to this style.

The bomber jacket. This is a trend I am super excited for this fall – and bomber jackets are everywhere! If you aren’t familiar with what a bomber jacket is, here are a few examples of some that I’m eyeing right now (one, two, three, four). I’m most excited about this trend because it provides a really easy laying piece that you can throw on and off. You can get one that is super basic or one with a lot of bells and whistles (hopefully not literally…but you never know).

In my pictures, I am wearing this cold shoulder top and this bomber jacket.

I raise my cup of coffee and cheers you to an amazing fall season. Are you excited for fall? What fall trends you are excited for?

    I am so glad you included that camo jacket. I have my eye on one from forever 21! Also are your shoes boots or mules? either way their cute!
