It’s always difficult to see summer go buh-bye, but having fun exciting trends to look forward to definitely does help. I mean we do still technically have some nice weather left, so you go ahead and hang on to what’s left girl, and when you’re ready here are some trends to try this fall.


While we wish we could change its name, the turtleneck sure is a classic piece, and we’re loving it to create mod looks for fall. We especially love the turtleneck when paired with a skirt.  Snapped by Chris Smart from World Master Card Fashion Week, Tiffany (of Citysleekchic.com) knows that you can’t go wrong with an over-sized turtleneck, and a fitted skirt!

Typically considered a summer trend due to its nautical nature we think stripes should be an all year thing. I mean why would they come in sweater form right? Check us out twining and doing our favorite thing: mixing prints! Mo (of lion-hunter.com) is not shy when it comes to mixing prints, and she knows a stripe is probably the easiest print to mix with others, so if you’re hesitant: opt for a stripe and tartan (in the same color family) and you can’t go wrong!

3. SUEDE | 

If there’s anything we’re ga-ga over this season it’s suede. Arguably your number one staple this Fall whether it’s a bag, skirt, dress, or bootie we’re welcoming it’s rich texture with open arms to all our looks. Add some fringe into the mix? And we can’t even. Bonus points for A-line suede dresses in rust or terracotta worn with sock or mod boots.  Want to get the look ? Read more here > shortpresents.com


The 70s are back with a vengeance for Fall it’s true, but these looks don’t need to be 100% totally groovy. Justine (of Jetsetjustine.com) shows us that flares can be totally posh with her Beckham inspire look. Want to get to look? Read more here >> jetsetjustine.com

Looks like I jumped the gun on this last year (see full post here) when I posted this look, but this color is EVERY where right now. Whether it’s bags, shoes, shirt dresses, or skirts you can’t go wrong with this hue. What to get the look? read more here >> shortpresents.com

6. A-LINE |
Gabby (blogger at Dentelleetfleurs) knows that a-line skirts are the bee knees for Fall dressing. Flattering on all body types this silhouette is a must for adding some femininity to your look. We love how she added some edge to her look by opting for textured leather. Want to get the look? Read more here >> dentelleetfleurs.com


Synonymous with Fall/Winter, boots are a Canadian fashionista must, and with higher hemlines, and a 70s throwback we are feeling the bootie! Whether you’re opting for a block heel under your flares, or you’re looking to edge up that a-line skirt or skinny jeans we say give Fall the boot! We love how Sarah (of bohoandbraids.com) rebelliously paired her booties with an all white look (which we highly approve of) for Fall. See more of her looks here >> bohoandbraids.com 

I know leaving summer behind is sad, and trust me I’m struggling for realz, but I have to kind of admit that I love Fall dressing. Arguably we get the best weather, and I do like to snuggle up in sweaters while still being able to wear bare legs.  I just wish we could skip the whole Winter Snowmageddon part that comes after…. ugh I can’t even go there.
