With the change of season (and my new post-prego frame), I’ve been eager to swap out my summer slides for fall layers, boots and blazers. My inbox has been a flurry of fall fashion trends, and while I can appreciate the latest haute couture looks, I rounded up five trends for fall that I personally connect with as bold yet classic, and wearable day to night.
Here’s how I’ve worn and will wear these “trends” this autumn and where you can shop these looks for less.
“Logo is a go-go this fall! From tights to bags and everything in between, designers’ logos were front and center on the F/W 18 runways. The iconic Dior Saddle Bag (pictured) has been particularly popular among the fashion set, resurrecting to fame again since those Carrie Bradshaw days of the ’90s.” – Who What Wear, “6 Fall Trends I Can’t Wait to Wear“
Side Note: I have a small and well loved collection of designer logo handbags I’ve slowly added to my closet since I purchased my first vintage Fendi bag (pictured above) when studying abroad in Rome. Since then, I’m always on the treasure hunt for new designer bags, mostly vintage and pre-owned. I can vouch for the incredible and authenticated bags you can find from online sites like Tradesy, The RealReal and Ebay to add these classic bags to your closet at a fraction of the price you’d pay at the store. (Stay tuned: I’ll reveal the newest site I discovered for scoring unique, pre-owned designer goods. If you’re always on the prowl for a vintage or pre-owned designer treasure, you won’t want to miss this!)
Mad About Plaid
“We’re falling for autumn’s essential statement print: plaid. It’s timeless and goes with everything (trust us!) Wear it dressed up with a blazer for work, or dressed down with jeans for a cozy day at the coffee shop.” – ModCloth
“The uptown staple gets an edge thanks to modern cuts (hello, boxy crop top and jean-style jacket) and patchwork details.” – Glamour, “Remixed Tweed,” September 2018
The Cat’s Meow
“With high-brow styling (a pussy-bow here, a slip dress there), these are bold and elegant.” – Glamour, “Refined Animal Prints” September 2018
“If you want to give the browns, grays, and darker hues of autumn a break, reach for the color that was seen all over the fall runways and fashion week—fuchsia pink. Fashion girls can’t seem to get enough. Don’t want to wear the hue from head-to-toe? Opt for a blouse, skirt, or shoes paired with neutrals.” Who What Wear, “6 Fall Trends I Can’t Wait to Wear“
