Every season I always get antsy to chat about trends- for more than one reason. There are so many micro trends ( we can both hate and love social media for that), that sometimes trend reports can feel outdated (even if they’re brand new). And also, there are trends that we’ll hate and trends that we won’t follow (I write about it here). Beyond that, I’m a firm believer that trends are just suggestions (aka when you find your own style you stick to it) and while trends may come and go- you can ignore a lot of them.
Which makes them hard to write about.
And also hard to clean out our closets as you never know what will come back (there’s been a pair of hot pink, platform boots that I can’t seem to let go of, but now know why!)
But. While I won’t be addressing all the trends (And there are so many places you can get them from!) and might chat about trends I’m seeing that aren’t official (like all the platforms I’m seeing on the red carpets but are on no “list” or the hot pink spawned by Valentino) this fall season I can’t help but share my fave fall 2022 trends with you. Take what you love. Leave what you don’t. Use what you have, buy what you are WAY too in love with. That’s what fall trends are for.
(At some point we might chat why the summer to fall transition feels SO big, especially with trends. We might also chat why transitions feel so big, I’ve written about it here, here, and here– a round up of thoughts and outfits to get through the summer to fall transitions and fall trends.)
But, with all of that, let’s take a look at some of my favorite Fall 2022 trends. Note: This post does contain affiliate links. While that does not affect the price for you, I might earn commission from them. Thank you for your support!
Oldies But Goodies
Inlcuded: Suits. Slip Dresses. Knits. Boots. Maxi dresses and skirts. Velvets. Embellishments.
Another reason why trends can be difficult to chat about? They come back? Has there been a fall in you lifetime when some sort of boots weren’t in? Or blazers? OR Sweaters?
Yes, these items are always in and always in some new style. This season it’s in plaids, pinks, knit sets, high boots, and all the velvets, etc you can love. And of course those will change over the course of the season. Here are some of my current faves:
Clogs and Platforms
If you’ve been paying attention to any of the red carpets of the recent film fest, fashion weeks, etc, the two shoes that you’ve been seeing over and over are clogs (go with anything from slouchy suits to jeans) to platforms (wear with dresses and suits and more). These are some of my faves:
While I feel as if leather is in style every cold weather season, this fall it’s so chic to wear leather (or faux leather) head to toe. From dresses. To suits. So mix and match. Thes are some of my faves:
Cliche? Yes. This season they cliche leans over the knee and western leaning. I love a great statement boot, and from velvets to patterns to all of the above, these are some of my faves:
What fall trends are you looking forward to? Are there any you’re not going to try (for me that’s cargo pants! But if you’re wearing them I can’t wait to see!)? What do you already have that matches the current trends?
I can’t wait to see your fall picks!
