Mauve, Leopard Print, Bell Sleeves, Cape Dresses - And More!

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!

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.

This one is for those of you who don’t like to walk on the wild side. If you like your style simple, you’ll love this three-quarter length sleeve swing tee from Lane Bryant.

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.

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.
