What’s in style this fall season?

  • Basic or graphic top with leather jacket.
  • With a large sweater or oversized tee.

Ballet flat are a returning fashion to this seasons trends. This may come as a shock and with some panic but don’t worry, these fall flats are going to be a step up from the early 2000s. Marie Claire gives some wonderful inspiration for how to wear them this season.

The 2022 ballet flats trend provides various colors, additional straps and hardware to give them a modern edge and intriguing designs.

Bright colors

This trend might seem contrary to the traditional autumnal shades of browns, reds and neutrals, but it will be in style this season according to Vogue. Lime green, orange and hot pink are predicted to dominate this fall.

Bright trendy colors are fit to tie in with another upcoming trend — color blocking. According to The Trend Spotter, mixing bright and bold colors are defying the days of “clashing colors being a fashion faux pas.” This season, mixing shades and duo-chrome outfits will be in.

How to style:
  • Popping colored suits.
  • Bright coats or jackets.

Bomber jackets

Another item making a comeback this fall, the bomber jacket. Marie Clair reported all the fall runways utilized bomber jackets on the catwalk. Maybe it’s a calling back to the 2010’s or Top Gun?

Either way, these statement jackets will up any outfit during a chilly fall day. Consider buying a patterned or embellished big bomber to add some flavor to your fall basics.

How to style:

  • Wear with a maxi dress or midi skirt.
  • Wear on top of a graphic or basic tee.
  • Style a colorful jacket with another bold color (stick to mixing warm or cool tones separately to elevate color blocking).

Textured knits

According to Vogue, “saturated and strokeable knits” will be in this season. Wool knit, mohair, scraggly knits and other textures are going to be a trend.

  • Textured knit with a pair of jeans and boots.
  • Sweater with midi skirt.
  • Wear with leather pants and black boots.

Leather

Leather jackets, coats, bags, shoes, pants, dresses, leather head-to-toe! Marie Clare, Vogue and The Trend Spotter, all predict everything leather to be a fall fashion hit. Runways opted for a full leather look, but for everyday fashion, spice up an outfit with a leather piece or accessory.

How to style:
  • Add a leather jacket.
  • Leather pants with a basic top and a jacket (could use a leather jacket).
