I’ve been keeping a close eye on fall fashion trends and predictions and after comparing dozens of lists from industry experts and insiders (yes, there was a spreadsheet involved) I’m ready to make my own predictions for the upcoming season!
Here are a few of the fashion trends I’m expecting to see this year:
1. Business Chic
I don’t know if it’s an ode to the working woman or something to do with Hilary’s pantsuits, but professional dress and business attire are definitely in for fall.
Smocked Dress in Crushed Velvet (ASOS)
I have never been a huge velvet fan, it’s just never been my thing. I am curious to see if it grows on me this fall as we’ll be seeing a lot of it!
Telling you florals are a fashion trend almost seems a little silly, but I think the kinds of florals they’re referring to are more like rich, bold prints in traditional fall hues. I’ve seen them called “couch florals” or “moody” florals, so take that how you will!
Undone seams, raw hemlines, clothing that looks just a little, well, messy, is expected to be big this year.
Before you go and dig Grandma’s coat out of the attic, you don’t have to go the real fur route. A fun faux fur over your favorite party dress can liven things up a bit this fall!
Plaid Check Pencil Skirt (ASOS)
Large print, small, get your checks and plaids in however you’d like!
Some honorable mentions we may be seeing a lot of this season: “Americana”, fringe, sheer, shearling, boxy items, western, silver shimmer, red, pale pink, and gold.
