TREND REPORT: FALL/WINTER 2018

Posted on September 25, 2018

Fall Trends

It may still feel toasty outside, but believe it or not, those cool-weather temperatures will be here before we know it. It can be tricky to dress during this ‘in-between the seasons’ time when it is still hot but time to start introducing fall clothing (and fall trends). For our readers who haven’t already started making the transition into fall you can check out our blog from earlier in the month all about making a effortless, in-style transition.

One of the most important (and fun) parts of transitioning into a new season is adding the hot new trends and colors into your wardrobe. If you missed it, we broke down this season’s ‘IT’ colors in a recent blog, check it out here. But now that we’ve put away the linen and straw accessories away until next Summer, there is finally room in your closet to start introducing the new seasonal trends. Yay!

Of course, all fall trends aren’t for everyone, but there is usually at least one trend that will work with your aesthetic, life-style and clothing needs. Incorporating the new fall fashion trends helps to keep your seasonal wardrobe current and fresh.

This season is full of fun trends that will work for most everyone. This is a fun season for fashion, and our stylists are so excited to share our top trends with you. Below you will find our TOP 10 Trends for Fall/Winter 2018. 

If you can’t get enough of this season’s hottest fall fashion trends, head over to our Pinterest boards, where we’ve broken down each of the seasons trends and colors with curated shopping links ready to go in each individual pin. Happy Shopping!

ANIMAL PRINTS

Fall Trends

Fall 2018 heard the call of the wild and answered by giving us gorgeous clothing, shoes and accessories featuring various animal prints. We’ve seen everything from big jungle cat prints, snake, cow, zebra and more. Major high-end designers like Etro, Stella McCartney and Tom Ford have all featured these trendy prints in their Fall/Winter collections. What makes this trend even more fresh and fun is seeing these prints in a variety of colors. Red leopard print, bright blue snake print and other eye-catching, far-out combinations are making their way to stores & boutiques all across the country. For our daring fashionistas, try this colorful snake print jacketfrom Alice + Olivia or this bright, cheery yellow animal print dress from Diane von Furstenburg. If you want to introduce this fall fashion trend but your style is a little more conservative try adding a printed shoe or handbag. Below are some of our favorite Animal Print items.
