If you’re updating your wardrobe this fall, it’s time to start shopping. But before you hit the mall or jump online, make sure you’re up to date with all the most recent trends and styles. Plus, a few fashion faux pas you’ll definitely want to stay away from this autumn! Because as Heidi Klum famously coined, “In fashion, one day you’re in and the next you’re out.”
Make Sure You’re Wearing The Right Prints
Animal prints have always been a big part of fashion. Some, like cheetah, almost always have a place in your closet. But, there are a few new print trends this fall that you’ll either want to jump on board with or leave it up to the animals to rock.
Snakeskin is having a major moment and you can see it just about everywhere. Mainly we’re seeing it on shoes, such as these Madden Girl snakeskin booties. But the print is also being worn on tops, dresses, and even pants. With such neutral colors, snakeskin pairs well with tons of other colors.
Two prints that we saw come in and out of this year’s fashion faster than lightning were cowskin and zebra. You might remember Meghan Markle rocking a pair of cow print heels to an event this past January, and while the pattern was around for a bit longer, it died off pretty much completely come spring.
Zebra was another print that we saw on the shelves of H&M that quickly went on sale.
Know The Right Jacket To Rock
Matching your outfit to your jacket is (obviously) the best way to complete any outfit. But, wearing a monochromatic jacket/ensemble was one fashion trend from earlier in the year that just didn’t work. Although we do always love a good white on white, it was the dark or bright colors, as seen on Bella Hadid in April, that really just looked too busy. The style was quickly over shined by long camel coats and sequin jackets. Which, likely thanks to Taylor Swift, are more popular than one might suspect right now.

Ethical and sustainable jewelry is officially the only way to go when it comes to accessorizing. With the recent push for eco-friendly measures in government, the fashion industry has responded. Brands are focused on reducing their footprint and offering more sustainable clothing lines (like the one from H&M). But the jewelry industry has made the biggest strides. Lab-grown diamonds and gems are exploding in popularity due to their 100% ethical source. And it’s not just with fashion jewelry. You can now get a mined-quality diamond that’s created in a lab. So when you start shopping for your vintage engagement ring to match your antique Chanel purse, you can walk away with peace of mind that the design may be based on another era, but the technology is that of the 21st century.
