July is almost over pretty people and I for one am glad. Every single day has been filled with humidity, bad hair, and 90 degree heat. I love the summer, no really I do, but when I’m not near a beach and I’m sitting inside my apartment listening to the AC pump out air all day, I get sick of it. August will breeze by as it usually does and then we can all welcome the start of Autumn.
I’ve kept my eyes on the runways and on Instagram for what’s going to be stylish this season (and hopefully for years to come). Let’s start with the brown leather jacket– cute, edgy, and radiates warmth. It’s a staple in every woman’s closet and it just never goes out of style. This year, I think you’ll see more people sporting a lighter leather than the traditional biker jacket though.
Moving right along, I predict denim jackets will be in again! Flashback to Lizzie McGuire days on the Disney Channel (just no bedazzling our jackets please). I’m actually selling a denim jacket on eBay right now and it’s up for auction!
Up next on my fall finds is the military pant. They were trendy for spring but I couldn’t bring myself to wear olive drab when traditionally it’s pastel season. I’m saving this look for October when I can have my Pumpkin Spice Latte in hand and wear deep shades of greens, reds, and blues.
My next find I saw on the runway and I’m really in love- Velvet tops! Who knew, right? The last time I wore anything velvet-y was when I was 10. I saw a few people wearing it over the winter and thought it looked nice but designers are really embracing it this year. I’m hoping the likes of H&M will embrace it too for a less expensive look.
Finally, mules and felt floppy hats will be making a return this fall! See a previous post for cheap mules. The hat was really popular last year too and I think its here to stay! I didn’t jump on the bandwagon last year because I thought it was a little too hipster for me, but do I like it now? Guilty as charged.
Let me know what fall trends you’re noticing!
