Like most girls, I cannot wait for fall. The crisp weather, the beautiful colors of the trees, bonfires, pumpkin spice everything…The list goes on and on. But my favorite part of the season, by far, is the fashion. I understand that packing away your cute summer wardrobe can be sad. But I promise, this year those bittersweet feelings will quickly be overtaken by excitement when you see some of the new trends for the season.
Dramatic Lips and Eyes
Elle Magazine named smokey eyes and ’90s lips two of the hottest makeup trends for the upcoming cool weather. The diffused smokey eye can easily be achieved by with a combination of brown and black liner.
For your lips, the “new” ’90s style consists of dark shades, dramatic hues of plum black and berry. These lips can be a big change if you’re used to a neutral pallet. For something a little more in your comfort zone, you can ease yourself into the bold look by starting with your usual go-to color in a shade or two darker.
The season’s makeup trends might be reflective of the ’90s, but some of the clothes are straight out of the ’70s—including the rise in popularity of brown suede. StyleCaster contributor Jasmine Garnsworthy said brown suede has ruled the runways recently in boho-inspired midi skirts, coats, and some jumpers. Even the classic fringe jacket is making a comeback.
If you’re hesitant to invest in a large piece, you can start with a pair of flat brown suede boots, or a brown suede bucket bag.
Black and White Tartan Dresses
Tartan is always a popular pattern for causal fall tops, but this season you’re likely to see it a lot more on formal attire, especially in black and white. If you look to Lyst’s collection, you can see the style represented on the Acacia Check Dress and the Sigat High Neck Shift Dress, as well as the Amabel Printed Challis Dress.
Sporting this trendy look can put a little fall fun into even the stuffiest formal events. Finish it off with a simple black heel or flat that you’re more comfortable in.
Make sure you get some use out of your summer clothes while you can. Fall and sweater weather are just around the corner, and you’ll want to take advantage of these trends before they’re gone!
