Fall is here. The leaves are changing, the pumpkin spice lattes are out in full force and most importantly, fall fashion trends are on the go. Here are some of this season’s most popular trends and ideas on how to make them work for you.

Colorblocking

If you don’t want to buy a whole new wardrobe, you can simply go at this trend on a grassroots level: pairing various solid-color items together. If you want to invest in a key piece, a jacket or sweater is perfect. Make sure the colors work with your particular skin tone and don’t wash you out. Often times, one color paired with black is a great way to interpret this trend.

Trench coats

Pretty much every single designer showed a trench coat on their fall runway and this is a really easy trend to participate in. It’s likely you have a trench already hidden in the back of your closet, so dig it out. If not, purchasing one in a basic color like khaki or black will ensure you can sport your trench for many¬† years to come. You can push limits and go uber-trendy with a giant, oversize coat, or stick to a more classical design.

Plaid

It’s fall so that means plaid anything and everything is fair game. This season, feel free to mix plaids, wear different color and pattern styles of plaid — just go crazy with plaids. Even better, this trend can carry on into those colder winter months too. If you don’t want to invest in a coat or blazer, a plaid scarf is an easy way to participate in this trend without going overboard.
