Fashion Trends for Fall
Southerners aren’t necessarily known for their fashion trends. We prefer to stick with classic, established trends and accept recent ones only when they complement our gingham or pearls. But this doesn’t mean Southern fashion is out of style; it’s just more rooted in tradition. For fall, here are some must-have fashion items to add to your closet.
COLOR BLOCK OPEN CARDIGAN
The latest fall fashion includes a block cardigan. This type of cardigan is great for layering and still showing off your outfit underneath. One with deep pockets can be practical as well as comfortable. Soft cashmere can be paired with a modern, trendy color block scheme in a stylish and comfortable style to take you from summer to fall.
GINGHAM PRINT DESS
A brightly colored, printed dress is the best way to portray a Southern belle. A gingham print shift dress is on the list of fashion must-haves for fall. It can be worn in all seasons though; you just need the right accessories to pair it with. This fall, tall leather boots and an open-collared cardigan with a wide belt will turn heads. A heart necklace with this dress would complete the look.
ANKLE PANTS FOR FALL HUES
Pull-on pants in darling shades of taupe or white is as flattering as it is comfortable. Let’s get back to pants! Ankle pants look great with low or kitten heel shoes and a turtleneck. You can also pair them with an oversized sweater and ankle booties. They are great for work or just a casual Saturday brunch with friends.
A versatile jacket is a must-have for fall fashion. We know Southerners love their old quilts, and a quilted jacket is slim and lightweight, but still contains a light filler that will keep you warm during colder days. Large outer pockets allow you to keep your phone and keys safe, whether you’re going for a hike or out to dinner.
We’ve already discussed what to pair your shoes with. Now, let’s now talk about the shoes themselves. Brown, ankle boots are perfect for crunching through piles of fall leaves. Boots with a low heel can be worn all day. Why not pair with a preppy game-day scarf for football season? You’ll be ready to tailgate in style.
Fall is on the way with crisp breezes, apple pie smells and changing leaves. However, this doesn’t mean that you have to wear pants all year. You can look cute in a corduroy skirt in traditional fall colors. Pair a skirt with boots, a scarf and a long-sleeve tee or sweater. Corduroy never goes out of style and is available in almost any color you can imagine.
Necklaces are a great way to boost your look. There is a large variety of necklaces for different ages, such as mom necklaces, wedding necklaces and much more. We mentioned a scarf earlier, and this might be the perfect fall accessory to complete your look.
