Cold, rainy, and windy weather has arrived, fall is finally here. It’s time to put away your denim shorts, summer dresses, and flip flops for next summer, but don’t be upset because this year’s fall trends are better than ever.

Outerwear is a must for every wardrobe collection, this year’s fashionable options are endless. Leather jackets are making a comeback this year, along with shearling and jean jackets. These styles of jacket look great in a bomber or aviator style. For cooler days, layering with chiffon cardigans and blazers can keep you warm and stylish.

Skirts are making their appearance in the fashion industry this fall, with new cuts and lengths. Maxi skirts are great if you loved wearing maxi dresses during the summer, but skirts are more versatile than dresses during the fall because you can pair them with almost anything. Floral prints and solids look can be worn with chunky sweaters or loose blouses.

Accordion skirts in all lengths are also a great option. A trend that has been worn during the summer can be transitioned into the fall, body con. To wear them in the fall remember that balance is key, wear heavier fabrics on top and pair them with a pair of tights. Animal prints and sequin styles are really big this fall.

If you’re a shoe addict, look for wedges and boots this season. Although boots have been in for the last 3 years, riding, combat, and fold over style boots are trending this fall. Boots are great for toughening or sweetening an outfit and are comfy for every day wear.

If boots aren’t for you another wedges are also an option. Giving you a little boost and completing your outfit, wearing wedges can also elongate your legs. The  best types of wedges for this fall are closed toe and wedged boots.

For the guys, jacket sweaters and cardigans are a staple piece for the cold weather. Try pairing them with a loose fitting pair of jeans and simple t-shirt for an effortless look. Button up shirts are another staple piece, they can be easily paired with pants to create a polished outfit.

Fall is a good time to invest in layers, and a wonderful time to spice up your wardrobe for the upcoming rainy and foggy weather.
