The first day of fall is Sept. 22, which means it’s time to break out the boots and slide into some sweaters. Along with cooler weather and fun festivals, fall brings in a number of fashion trends that will keep you looking stylish all season long. Think autumnal colors, thick knits and sleek leather. Certain trends always come back every fall, like plaid for example. But there’s usually a unique spin that makes the trend particularly relevant for today. If you want to know what the latest fall fashion trends are, you’re in for a treat. I’ve included links to local and online boutiques where you can shop the trend. But shop sustainably when you can at secondhand stores. Now, let’s get into these fall fashion trends.
- Floor Lengths
One trend to emerge this fall is the return of the maxi dress/skirt. Mini skirts had their moment during the summer, but for fall, floor-length hemlines are taking over. Get the look with this maxi skirt from Mamie Ruth.
Whether they’re sneakers, loafers or boots, platform shoes are trending into the fall. There’s power in those chunky soles that will make you step out in confidence. A vintage-inspired pair like these will serve you well this fall.
Leather is one of those fall fashion trends that just keeps coming back, and with good reason because it’s classic. But this year, it’s back with a grittier, grungy twist. Opt for leathers (or vegan leathers) styled in long, duster jackets and oversized blazers like this one.
- All That Glitters
As we move further into the 2020s, we’re seeing a resurgence of the Roaring Twenties in fashion. T’was a time when flappers danced around in shining frocks and beaded headpieces. Sequins, rhinestones, and shimmery fabrics in all their forms are back in everything from evening attire to daywear. Check out this set from Broughton St. boutique The Edition Shop for some inspiration.
- Puff and Fluff
Statement outerwear like fuzzy floor-length dusters and extra-soft sweaters have been taking runways by storm as of late. Look for larger-than-life puffers, fabulous faux-fur and textured sweaters made from soft knits. This poncho from Morgan Rae Boutique exemplifies this fall fashion trend.
