2016 fall trends from catwalk to sidewalk
I bet you have seen many new fashion trends for the 2016 fall and winter seasons from the fashion magazines or on TV. And you may say, nah, those trends are so weird or over the top and I can’t wear it in my real life. That is so true for most of us who have a day job and a family to run. So below I summarized a few of the trends which overall are wearable for most of us. And remember, trends come and go, you don’t have to buy all new pieces to accommodate a new season. Just digging out your favorite collections from the past and earlier this year may be a great way to stay trendy and do it with a hot new look!
1. Leopard prints:
If you ask what is the trend that is always there and always hot for fall and winter? The answer is LEOPARD PRINTS! These timeless and colorful animal patterns can be everywhere and on everything!

2. Wear Leather:
You can wear a leather coat, leather leggings, leather skirt or just a simple and bad to the bone leather motor jacket. This is another one that always holds its spot on the list year after year.

3. Fall Florals or prints
Fall florals or prints are rich and feature earthy tones. I often am reminded of some of the tapestries I saw when I was in Europe a few years ago with my husband. The heavier fabrics and prints of the season almost tell a story. And the storyline is fashion!

A midi skirt
4. Wear Burgundy Color as an accessory
This rich deep color comes straight out of nature and into your wardrobe. When the leaves change to red, yellow, orange and burgundy it means you should too. Adding splashes of this royal hue to your outfit is an easy way to “fall” right into line with the season. Ha! See what I did there?

5. Wear a sweater dress, instead of a sweater:
I own several of these pieces. They are true fashion multi-taskers. They flatter your figure while they keep you warm when the cold breezes blow. And they come in the fall color palette and feature traditional patterns. These busy dresses belong in anyone’s wardrobe that lives in a four season location.
6. Use fur, but as an accessory:
A small but tasteful splash of fur adds that just right touch of seasonal fashion. Available in all the colors of the rainbow it’s also a fairly cost effective way to up your game with a designer label thrown in the mix.

The normal way but with a colorful fun twist.
A more unique way to use a fur scarf as a layering piece.
7. Wear booties, and not boots:
This is the time of year to take advantage of the weather. It’s cool enough to finally wear those cute booties you scored at that last mega sale. Back in the summer flip flop heat your feet would have baked in them. And you’re still a few months away from fighting your way though snow drifts to get to your car.

Did you see my point? You don’t have to buy all new pieces to catch the trends of this year. Most of the new trends are usually just a new way to use an old piece. Now go to your closet to see if there’s anything that you can wear again for this fall, but in a new way. If so, you just won the trend game! 🙂
