Fall happens to be my, your Personal Stylist Intern’s, favorite season of the year! Not just because of the crisp autumn air, and beautiful foliage, but because of the FASHION. The lower temperatures allow fashionistas everywhere to break out moto jackets, booties, and warm accessories. Overall, fashion just gets better in the fall. AND, it can get even better with some of the biggest trends of the season!
Your Personal Stylist’s Favorite Colors
The FW19 runways were full of monochrome dressing. From hot pink to red; however, pistachio green was the frontrunner. Pistachio is the perfect color to upgrade your fall closet. Not only can it be used as a neutral, but it gives off a very luxe feel. While designers like Sally Lapoint opted to style their models in head to toe pistachio, that may be a bit overwhelming for an everyday look. Instead, try out a simple pistachio sweater or t-shirt for a classic layering look.
The runways appeared to have taken lots of inspiration from the 1800s. Not only was lace a major showcase at shows like Brock and Khaite, but it was paired with other Victorian like trends. For instance, puffy sleeves, square necklines, and corsets were additionally paired with lace fabrics. If you tend to dress on the romantic side this trend is extremely up your alley!
This trend is perfect for transitioning into the holiday season. Metals are extremely festive and will not only look great in the fall but can be worn again to festivities all winter long. The Alberta Ferretti show addressed high sheen metals in pleated head to toe outfits. If you tend to be more minimalist, try out the metal trend through experimenting with accessories. A silver metallic boot with an all-black outfit can really add some life to a boring outfit. These R13 silver metallic cowboy boots come with a high price tag, but you can truly wear them all season long.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, animal print is the following:
- Animal prints have been trending all year long, and it’s not going to stop anytime soon. Last fall, we saw a cheetah print as the top print of the season; however, throughout 2019 several other animal prints have come into the game. Although cheetah will always be a classic, you might try out a tiger, zebra, cow, or a giraffe print. These obscure animal prints can add so much to an outfit. If you tend to be willing to take risks with your wardrobe I definitely recommend stepping out of the cheetah print range. I, for one, am looking for a cow print piece this fall. I am in love with this tie in the front cow print top from Nasty Gal. I would style it with a pair of skinny jeans and brown booties for a simple look.
Grunge is officially back. Dark florals are a great way to transition your favorite spring print into the colder months. This print not only lookers super cool and edgy, but it adds a certain youthfulness to any outfit. This print tends to contain colors such as black, navy, army green, burgundy, in addition to a few pop colors. I love the idea of pairing a loose dark floral dress with a black turtleneck and booties. This outfit will give you the perfect amount of grunge, without having any bad nineties flashbacks.
