Sometimes we can get a little excited about new trends, especially when they come out months ahead of the actual season according to the fashion calendar. But how can we wear fall’s latest trends when it’s still 90 degrees outside? The answer is in small doses and creative pieces. Find a fall color or print and mix it into your end of summer look. Here are our top fall trends to try for 2016.
Velvet is the fabric for fall, but is not as practical for the hot weather. Wear it in an accessory like on a chunky heel or this stunning silver headband found on Etsy by creator Beauxoxo.. The turban is a modern cool girl vibe that is instantly chic. Perfect for every occasion, wear with a red lip to take the look from day to night! It can even be worn over your ears when it starts to get a bit chilly out.
What screams fall more than our favorite fall flavor, pumpkin! (Word on the street the PSL will be available September 8th so hold tight) Capture the next seasons “it” color in a summer item like this crewneck cotton tee from Eileen Fischer. Pair with a crisp white, light camel brown, or turquoise for summer. When September comes around switch in maroon, dark denim, and browns.
Reconstructed & Patchwork Denim
Reconstructed jeans were all over the Fall 2006 runway. Get a casual, cool, and relaxed look in NYDJ’s Sylvia Relaxed Boyfriend with a patch detail! One of our favorite boyfriend fits is updated for the season in our faded Montebello wash with deep indigo patches for a vintage inspired look.
Boho Maxi Skirts
Boho maxi skirts were featured in our recent article on how to stay cool and covered in the summer heat. Just trade flats and sandals for boots when fall comes around. The knit fabric will keep you cool and comfortable.
Cold Shoulder Top
When an alluring cold shoulder silhouette meets a geometrical printed textural fabric, the result is a covetable top perfect for work and play. It is just enough sexy and coverage, and still appropriate for the cooler months ahead.
