Hello, fall! Yes, it’s sad to see summer go. But hey, that means fall fashion is coming in hot.
Before we show you our fave finds, let’s talk about trends. While Pantone’s color of the year is Living Coral, we are seeing a shift to mauves and purples. We’re also seeing a rise in cape dresses. (Who didn’t want to be a superhero when they were a kid?) Further, runways have been filled with plaid, faux leather (like lots of it), grunge and punk looks, and super exaggerated tulip sleeves. Finally, animal prints, two-toned jeans and lace are all the rage.
Now for the fun part. Check out the 9 fall fashion trends we adore for 2019, and where to find them.
1. Cape Dresses
Yes, friends, you can be a superhero at work this year. Cape dresses are all the rage. You can pair them with block heels, white booties, and even traditional heels.
We love this Eloquii cape dress, in honeysuckle pink below, which is also available in ultramarine green and black. It’s perfect for fall weddings, a board meeting at work, or for a dressy event. (Available in sizes 14 to 28.) Check out this elegant Eloquii look!
If you like an elegant look with a bright color, check out this Betsy & Adam option. We love the ruched detail. And if you’re not into bright colors, it also comes in white, night and pine. (Available in sizes 14 to 22.) See the red cape dress on Macy’s Site.
For a cheaper option, you can try this Shein belted cape dress. It comes in sizes 0 XL to 3 XL. Find this cute value on Shein.
2. Animal Prints
Fall 2019 is all about the animal prints. Specifically, snake and leopard prints are going to be everywhere. So give your wardrobe a roar with this fun fashion trend.
Hello, adorable! This one-shoulder leopard print top from Fashion to Figure is one of the cutest animal prints we’ve seen this season. Pair it with some booties and skinny jeans and you’ll be rockin’ the town. (Available in sizes 0 to 3.) Get yours from Fashion to Figure.
3. All Things Mauve and Purple
Mauve is the HOT color right now. Yes, we saw this last spring. But it’s transitioning to fall because it’s a cool fall color with a bit of a warm undertone. We like this trend because it’s an easy color that can go with just about anything. In other words, you don’t have to be a true fashionista to pull it off. And don’t forget about purple! It’s coming in just as hot.
We are slightly obsessed with this Torrid mauve purple stretch challis peplum blouse. The reason? You can wear it with anything from jeans to work pants. Best of all, it’s reasonably priced. (Available in sizes 10 to 30.) See it for yourself.
4. BIG Exaggerated Sleeves on Dresses
This trend is so fun. Big is better when it comes to sleeves. And exaggerated sleeves have been hitting stores like wildfire. We love the idea of rocking them out with block heels, pumps, or over-the-knee boots. You’ll be the hit of any fall party.
OK, this may be the world’s sexiest dress. Seriously, we love it! The bold blue of this Calvin Klein off-the- shoulder crepe dress is super glamorous. The sleeves are a showstopper. You really can’t go wrong with this little number. (Available in sizes 14 to 22.) Check it out on Macy’s.
5. Lots of Faux Leather (Like Head to Toe)
Faux leather is everywhere this season. And most interestingly, you can wear it from head to toe if that’s your jam. Runways have been filled with this look. So go ahead, get leathery.
We dig this faux leather skirt from Anthroplogie Plus. It’s edgy and can be paired with just about anything. (Available in sizes 16 to 28.)
6. Two-Toned Jeans
It’s time for another fashion flashback. Two-toned jeans are back in style. We’ve spotted this trend just about everywhere. It’s a bit reminiscent of the colored pockets of the 80’s with a modern twist.
These high-rise, two-toned skinny jeans from Fashion to Figure are on-trend. And, you can wear them with just about anything thanks to the simple colors. We love these jeans. (Available in sizes 12 to 24.) You can never have enough cute jeans.
We adore these colorblock skinny jeans. They offer that little bit of edge you’re looking for in a two-tone pair of jeans and a lot of stretch. (Available in 1X-3X.) Jump into these before fall arrives.
7. Lacey and Racy
Lace is all the rage this season. And quite frankly, we love it. You can’t go wrong with a little lace on just about every occasion.
How fun is this Kiyonna lace top? The black lace on top of the nude lining along with the three-quarter length sleeves makes for a showstopper. (Available in sizes 0X-5X.) Shop Nordstrom.
This sheer top is a win-win. You can put a cami underneath if you want a more modest look, or you can rock out a cute embroidered bra under this shirt. Pair it up with a pencil skirt or jeans. Toss on your favorite badass boots and you are going to be the talk of the town.
Drive away into the sunset in this little number. We love that this dress is flowy. You can toss on a cute choker, bracelets, badass boots, a denim jacket, or even a moto jacket. (Available in sizes 10 to 30.) See this lovely option here.
8. Wild Prints
We’re loving the wild prints trend this fall. It’s bold, fun, and offers unexpected options. If you’re looking for wild, you’ll love these.
This little number from Anthropologie Plus caught our attention because it’s unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. Pair it with some booties and you’re good to go. (Available in sizes 1X to 3X.) Capture this look.
Who says you have to spend a ton to look adorable? Not I, said the fly. We’re loving this black ditsy floral dress from Old Navy. Yes, that’s really the name. (Available in sizes 1X to 4X.) Find it now.
9. Mad for Plaid
Yes, ladies … it’s true. Everyone is mad for plaid this season. And who wouldn’t be? Plaid is fun.
This Torrid duster combines the popular kimono trend with plaid. Pair it with some skinny jeans and a pair of booties, and you’ll be ready for bonfire season. (Available in sizes 10 to 30.) See this timeless classic.
