5 Fall Trends to Shop Now

Shifting gears from Wednesday's summer swim post to talk all about fall fashion today! It may still be well above 90 degrees in Alabama, but my mind and closet are quickly switching focus to all things fall. With the tons of new fall arrivals hitting stores each day, there are too many cute things not to share. 

When it comes to transitioning my wardrobe from summer to fall, I always like to look at the big picture first- studying trends and drawing inspiration from the runway, magazines, and online. Then I like to think about which seasonal trends I want to add to my wardrobe and which will best accent my style. I will choose classics over trends any day, but I do love accenting my classic pieces with more trendy ones each season and finding the perfect balance between the two.

Today I'm excited to share 5 fall trends to shop now! These are trends that you can begin incorporating into your warm weather outfits now and continue wearing as the weather cools. 

1. Deconstructed Classics

These are modern pieces you can wear casually with jeans or dress up with statement earrings and heels. Deconstructed classics are a chic way to freshen up your fall wardrobe and add a contemporary flair to your outfits. My top pick is this top under $50!

2. Velvet

This soft, rich, and lux fabric has been a growing trend over the past year, and one I really really love. Velvet draws the eye in and instantly adds depth, interest, and a soft glimmer to any outfit. For warmer weather, pair this top with a simple white skirt and wear it later with jeans and over the knee boots. My top pick is this top under $100.

3. Blush

I am no stranger to the color blush and absolutely adore this soft, sweet hue (just look around my website). Blush, pale pink, or "millennial pink" (as some say) is having a major moment, and I fall more in love with this color everyday. It's such a gorgeous neutral that you can wear year round and one that adds a light touch of femininity to your look. My top pick is this gorgeous coat!

4. Midi Skirts

Midi skirts are an item that you can easily begin mixing into your daily outfits now and continue wearing through the coming fall season. Pair a pretty midi with a tank and sandals now or later with a sweater and booties. Either look is equally as chic! I am especially loving the metallic and pleated midis for fall. My top pick is this skirt under $100!

5. Bold Gold

Gold is everywhere this season! From skirts, to shoes, to dresses, to accessories, there are so many gorgeous gold items in stores right now. My obsession with bold gold earrings is growing very quickly, and I think this is such an easy (and less expensive) way to dip your toes into the bold gold trend. My top pick are these geometric earrings!
