Bring on the leopard print, cozy textures and fall colors!
We’ve scoured runway reports, our favorite fellow bloggers and our favorite stores to gather our top picks for on-trend, versatile and affordable pieces to get your wardrobe ready for fall.
TRENDS WE HAVE OUR EYES ON FOR FALL
RED, RED WINE
Wine, burgundy, cranberry… whatever you call it, this color is trending big time this fall! Look for tops, blazers, vests, pants and even shoes in this runaway color of the season. Pair your wine with expected colors like navy or black or get a little edgy and mix your red, red wines with leopard print and olive for a fresh fall look!
Olive is back again this fall with fresh takes on work wear with blazers and work pants and updates to last year’s weekend wear trend with cozy layers and new spins on the classic cargo jacket! If you haven’t tried olive yet, this year could be your year!
MARIGOLD & MUSTARD
Yellow has been big in 2018 starting with Mustard in spring and evolving to citrusy yellows over summer. Mustard is back for fall with a fresh new name, Marigold. This warm color is perfect to mix with darker fall colors for work, weekend or date night!
Moms gone wild! You already know we’re big fans of this trend and honestly, I’m not sure any of us ever let this one go! Animal print is back for fall and expect to see leopard print everything from pants, sweatshirts, shoes and even fuzzy jackets. This season adds bright colored leopard print to the classic leopard we know and love.
We love our heels and trust us, those aren’t going away anytime soon, BUT… flats are back in a big way this fall! Expect lots of ruffles, texture, pattern and edgy details on this season’s flats. These aren’t the flats you wore in grade school, trust us!
Happy shopping, Mamanistas! Tell us what’s on your must-have list this fall.
