With temperatures scorching in parts of the country and Labor Day still a month away, the last thing on your mind is fall. But since #quartantinesummer is upon us and we’ve spent too much time in our loungewear, let’s look forward to the next fashion season. Fall is such a fun season to dress for—from layers to scarves and luxurious textures. While the staple trends of fall like burgundy and leopard print come back around each year, we’ve picked up on some new trends for fall 2020 that we can’t wait to try. Here’s our top 5 fall trend predictions, and how we’ll wear them:
While burgundy will always be a classic autumnal shade, a rich marigold is the new “it” color for this season. Think of marigold like a saturated mustard color that looks good on everyone. Try on a marigold sweater with jeans for a casual outfit. For work, add a marigold blazer on top of a little black dress for an eye-catching pop of color. If you’d rather sport the color in a smaller dose, a handbag or some velvet slippers are an easy way to dip a toe in the marigold trend.
Leather comes back around every fall, but for 2020, we’re talking layers of faux leather. Try rocking faux leather from head to toe with a faux leather blazer paired with faux leather trousers. A faux leather wrap dress is a chic option for work or a night out on the town. A less intense, fun way to rock this trend? Colored faux leather. Try a rich kelly green shade for major fall vibes.
Remember those babydoll dresses from the 90s? Yeah, they’re back, baby. From polka dot prints to bold solids, doll dresses add the right amount of femininity to any wardrobe. Pair them with your favorite knee high boots for a runway-ready fall outfit. Or lean into the frills and try a doll dress with a high ruffled neckline. Rock your hair in a topknot and add a smokey eye for major drama.
Newsflash. Blazers aren’t just for the office. Oversized blazers layered over a girly dress are the perfect balance between menswear and feminine fashion. Cropped blazers will be all the rage this year—the shorter length adds an unexpected edge to your outfit. The key to rocking a cropped hemline is to balance it out with a high waisted bottom. For a casual outfit, pair a cropped blazer with a bodysuit and high waisted boyfriend jeans. Add booties and a gold necklace for the finishing touches.
Another spin on the workwear trend is oversized button-up shirts. Again, you need to balance out proportions when wearing something oversized, so pair these tops with a skinny bottom. Try a classic white button-down paired with leather leggings for a work-from-home approved outfit that’s so comfortable. Skinny jeans also work with oversized button-ups. Add booties and a wide brim fedora for a trend approved look that will turn heads.
