Even though it’s definitely still summer here, I’m already dreaming and planning for fall so today I want to delve a little deeper (with pictures) into the fall 2019 fashion trends. If you’d like to see my video on the subject, you can watch it here or at the bottom on this post.
Things like structural shoulders, cinched waists and clean tailoring are everywhere for fall. I love this trend and think that it’s incredibly accessible because you can go as crazy or subdued as you like. For example, if you love oversized blazers you can try a vintage men’s option or if you want to keep things more low-key you can simply belt your current favorite blazer.
2. HEAD-TO-TOE LEATHER & LUXE LEATHER SEPARATES
Texture is one of my favorite things to play around with and the rise of leather separates for fall is right up my alley. I love the look a tailored leather blazer (so easy to find second hand!) and a relaxed slip dress or classic jeans. Plus, leather or pleather separates are a wonderful way to add interest to a monochromatic outfit.
3. THE NEW BOURGEOIS
Take your timeless wardrobe essentials in classic cuts and colors wear them all together for the ultimate luxe look. This trend also includes classics with a twist and features things like classic separates with updated sleeves or fun linings and slouchy boots in a classic color or croc embossed bags and shoes or luxe capes that update your entire wardrobe. It’s subtle details like this that make these new classics so great and something you can invest in with confidence.
4. SQUARE TOES
Square toes are tricky but if you’re looking for an easy way to update your look with just one pieces, square toes are a great way to do this.
5. PERIOD PIECES
This next one is carrying over from spring and summer and something thats so easy to find second hand and vintage. It includes everything from ruffles to statement sleeves and lace inlets. Also lace up shoes, elaborate headbands and hair accessories and pearl jewelry that feels both modern and antique are perfect for this one.
6. TOUGH ROMANCE
In contrast to the period pieces trend, we’re also seeing a tough almost grungy look that consists of lace and romantic details paired with tough accessories like combat boots, chains and chokers. All done in black as well to toughen it up even more.
There’s always a color or two that becomes the it color of the season and this fall it’s pistachio. This color is carrying over from spring/summer but for fall we’re seeing it in head-to-toe pistachio looks. Things like green coats paired with green pants and accessories is perfect for this trend and it’s a great time to stock up on this color if it’s one of your personal faves.
If you love bling, then this next trend is perfect for you. Crystals in accents, jewelry and shoes are going to be everywhere for fall 2019 but it goes beyond a night out. Instead, we’re seeing it paired with daywear and traditional wool and tweed fabrics for a luxe daytime look.
9. BALLOON SLEEVES
Statement sleeves have been around for a few seasons now but this fall it’s all about the balloon sleeves. These voluminous, subtly romantic sleeves are perfectly modern and 80’s at the same time and look fantastic in just about every material from cotton to cashmere.
Last but not least, we have tights. This trend spans printed tights, colored tights and everything in between. For an understated take on this trend, I think subtle polka dot tights with a neutral outfit is perfect!
