Summer is coming to an end as retail stores nationwide debut new clothes for one of the most anticipated seasons of the year: fall.
The leaves are not the only thing making drastic changes this year. Put away your bathing suits, crop tops and sun dresses and breakout all things cozy.
According to Elle, one of the top trending fashion magazines, this year is all about throwbacks and vibrancy. It’s even acceptable to sport a puffy windbreaker with a pair of high-waisted mom jeans in 2018.
If there is one major fashion statement that encompasses the cool months of autumn, it is any type of boot. One can never go wrong with a simple brown, low-cut bootie for a classy night out or a casual day to work, but do not be surprised to see boots on the colorful side this year.
Flannels are sticking around this fall, as if they ever left. Sorry to be the messenger, but the usual reds, browns and grays are not making it to the storefronts. Instead, expect flannels to be bright, colorful and bold.
Faux leather leggings will also be popular so wear these for a bold choice to compliment just about anything. Match them with an oversized crewneck, a tucked-in long-sleeved shirt or a neutral cardigan to class-up any outfit.
Colored tights are also changing the game this fall. Exchange your black and neutral tones for yellows, blues and reds. According to the styles on the runway, tights will be paired under dresses, shorts and ripped jeans.
Will people really experiment with bright and bold during a season filled with shades of orange?
With the expected fashion season to feature a plethora of bright and bold styles, Christine Le, a West Palm Beach tourist hailing from Atlanta, commented on the future fall trend.
“I feel like bright and bold isn’t very fall and autumn. I guess it’s a change from what normal trends would be, but I don’t know if I would wear bright or bold this season,” said Le.
Le’s opinion did not stand alone. Another tourist, Rachel Creamer from Oregon, mentioned her opposition with the upcoming fad.
“Bright and bold isn’t really my thing. I feel like I’m more of a mellow person. Go-you to whoever can pull it off, I definitely can’t,” Creamer said.
