Ah, trends. They come and go, and then come back again! Which is great for a couple of reasons. 1) Just about the time we get bored with something it’s time for something new! And 2), If you hate a trend, just wait it out! (But know it’ll be back.) I’ve got five fall trends to share with you today and in full disclosure, I’m not in love with all of them. But that’s OK, they’ll be gone again soon!

1. The 90s
If you’ve been anywhere lately you’ve likely seen these 90s looks popping up. My trip to Target recently felt like I was in Cher Horowitz’s closet (remember that closet??). Remember the iconic yellow plaid?
Here’s the thing about the 90s. If you’re under the age of 30, you might be thinking this is kind of fun. High-waisted jeans, boxy blazers, oversized plaid prints, any kind of Ralph Lauren equestrian-esque turtleneck with a plaid jacket and riding boots. (Remember how every magazine in the 90s had a full page ad with this outfit?) If you’re over the age of 30, you probably remember how the fashions of the 90s weren’t exactly known for being flattering. Do with this trend what you’d like.
2. The Power Blazer
Still slightly in the 90s category, these menswear-style jackets are making a strong showing.
I’m always a fan of a good blazer, it’s such an easy way to dress up any look. I can definitely get behind this trend!
Another trend I’m not personally in love with. I’ve never been big on wearing logos (Chanel, I’ll make an exception for you.) but if you’re into this, get excited. You can do designer logo head to toe, or grab your favorite brand’s tee.
4. Colorful tights
Wait, did we do colorful tights in the 90s? I mean, I remember wearing colorful tights but was it a trend then or was I just into it? Either way, don’t be afraid to grab some colorful tights!
5. Ankle Length Skirts
Store your minis and look for length! You’ll be able to find lots of options this fall and these skirts can carry you through the winter and into spring too! Two nice things about this trend? This length will elongate your leg AND show off your shoes! (The price you have to pay with maxi skirts that hit the floor!)
There are plenty of other trendy things to try out if none of these are your style – items that sparkle, anything plaid, shearling coats, animal prints, and pops of neon will round out the fall. Get ready! Or don’t and just wear what you want. ;)
