Fall 2020 Fashion Trends
Fall is my favorite time of the year when it comes to fashion. I can finally wear all of my jeans and comfy long sleeve tops without overheating, and I love that fall also takes into account the comfort of clothing. After all, I'm way more comfortable in a cashmere sweater than I am in a crop top.
As a fan of earthy-tones and other muted colors, fall somehow finds a way to cater to all of my interests. While fall trends definitely change from year to year, there is usually some cohesiveness of style among all of the years.
So, while I wait for it to finally dip below 80 degrees down here in Florida, it's time to discuss some of the 2020 fall trends that you should expect to see and some of the pieces I think would be perfect for them.
Out With the Old and in With the Nude
Don't sleep on this trend because there are so many different nude colors to play around with! Whether you like beige, lighter shades such as cashmere or latte, or darker ones such as chocolate or caramel, there is so much range for this trend.
You can choose to mix up different shades of nude or go for a more monochromatic look. For fall, this definitely gives shoes and purses in your wardrobe a time to shine. Try pairing some nude booties and a tapered pant in a similar shade with a nice deep plum or hunter green cashmere sweater. The monochromatic look will give these deep colors a chance to pop while still adhering to fall fashion.
All around, runways displayed classic leather jackets and styles accompanied by more colorful pieces that definitely defied the mainstream. Don't worry, these colorful leather pieces definitely won't be an eyesore. You can expect to see the staple black, white, beige, ecru, and nude leather pieces, but be on the look out for some burgundy and other fall colors. If you want to mix it up, you can always go for a brighter red or green.
Additionally, this trend doesn't just stop at leather jackets. Skirts, pants, shorts, and even dresses were seen perfectly embodying new takes on leather clothes. Now is the perfect time to invest in a quality leather jacket or skirt because this trend is sure to resurface for years to come.
Oversized blazers have been highly coveted when it comes to off-duty model looks. I definitely need to give Hailey Bieber credit for putting this piece on the map with her seemingly effortless outfits. For me, that's what pushed me to start my search for the perfect oversized blazer, but now seeing blazers as a fall trend has made me search even more.
This trend is perfect because it really does elevate an outfit, and I honestly do believe it helps people achieve a sense of effortlessness in their outfit. Additionally, if you live in a warmer climate, you can still cop this trend. The oversized blazer has been seen countless times paired with a white tee, denim shorts, and combat boots. In colder climates, you can pair your blazer with straight leg jeans, a plain or graphic tee, and boots or even some cool heels to give the outfit a pop of color.
On The Fringes
I think you'll either love or hate this trend. Some people rock fringe all year long, and others probably never want to see it again. However, this fall is going to debut fringe in more tailored, high-fashion pieces. So, if you ever wondered about experimenting with fringe, now is the perfect time to do it. A lot of pieces display fringe in subtle ways that can still adhere to your style and preferences, but feel free to go crazy with it.
Put Some Prep in Your Step
If the the idea of adorning a houndstooth blazer wasn't tempting enough, the runway also featured plenty of pieces with a preppy feel to them. On the streets you should be prepared to see plenty of argyle knits, cardigans, and stripes. If you were ever thinking about indulging in some tailored pieces, then this is the perfect season to do so.
Of course you can incorporate these preppy pieces to be as masculine or feminine as you would like. You can also adhere to the more traditional styles or make it modern with an oversized argyle vest and a leather skirt.
Focus on the Shoulders
Often when it's cold out we just want to throw on a coat and blend in, but this season is all about standing out, and the addition of tops and jackets with accentuated, exaggerated, and puffed shoulders have made it almost inevitable that you can stand out this fall and still be fashionable. These pieces still have a timeless feel to them and will keep you looking elegant, and the detail on the shoulders will only make your outfit that much more interesting.
