After wearing loungewear for what feels like forever, it is time to start wearing real clothes. Yes, that includes all of you still working from home. Toss aside the tie-dye t-shirt and the Lululemon Align dupes. Now that you need to update your wardrobe, you may be wondering what to buy. To help you out, I picked out 5 fall trends to try.
Fall Trends To Try
For each trend, I’ll even share the pieces that you should buy. I’ll do my best to include size-inclusive pieces as well as options at multiple price points.
PS. If you’re not into trends or prefer to have a capsule wardrobe, you should still check these out. A lot of these pieces can be worked into a capsule or worn for multiple years.
Knit everything is on-trend for fall. But we are not talking basic pieces, instead opt for elevated knit options. Look for quality knit dresses and knit sets that can be dressed up or worn casually. Pair with a square toe shoe to elevate your outfit or throw on some white sneakers for a casual vibe.
Lots of Leather
Leather and its faux counterparts have always been in style, but this year we are taking it up a notch. If you really want to embrace this trend, purchase a leather shirt or skirt. Just make sure the quality and fit are on point. You aren’t trying to look like a member of Coyote Ugly. For those of you just wanting to dabble, look to leather accessories like bags and belts.
There is a time and a place for a cropped or fitted blazer however Fall/Winter 2021 is not that time. This season it is all about the oversized/boyfriend blazer. To keep it from looking a bit too frumpy pair this blazer with a cute cropped top or a corset top.
PS. This is a great trend to thrift. Look for a blazer in the men’s section. Spend a few extra dollars and get it tailored for the perfect oversized fit.
Wide Leg Pants
A nice wide-leg trouser has been a staple suit piece for years. This year, wide-leg pants are a little less business and a lot more fun. You can certainly dress them up for work, but I suggest going for a cool girl casual look instead.
PS. This is another trend that is easy to thrift. Take them to get tailored or learn to hem them yourself.
Lug Sole Shoes
The lug sole shoe came out of hiding for a brief period last winter. Do you remember all the Instagram ads for Dr. Martens? Everyone then went out and bought chunky combat boots. This year you’ll see those same boots but you will also see lug sole oxfords and Chelsea boots.
