i know, i know, who’s ready to give up summer? “not i,” said the little red hen. me either. but fall is on its way whether we’re ready for it or not. recently, several lovely readers have written asking what’s on-trend this season. so why don’t we dip our toes into the fall fashion water and see for ourselves? and, my mother was right yet again. when it comes to fashion, trends are on repeat every so often. as far as i’m concerned, some trends turn into classics. let’s take a look
statement faux fur. this is a trend that’s been around for several seasons, switching back and forth between jackets and vests. this year look for bold colors and prints.
metallics. gold will be big this fall as opposed to silver. look for maxi dresses and evening tops. to play it safe, i always keep a pair of metallic shoes on hand. in my book they work as a neutral and give any outfit a bit of pizazz.
military. from t-shirts (a wardrobe staple of mine) to trench coats or a pair of beloved khaki’s this trend takes it cue from military uniforms. and it’s casual chic at it’s finest. details like brass buttons and epaulets will see a resurgence.
velvet. who can resist this luxurious fabric? well, it’s back on-trend this season. when did it go out?
pearls. ahem… that’s right. pearls are back in style. necklaces, earrings, even shoes will see an abundance of embellishment with the world’s oldest gems.
leopard. jenna lyons coined the phrase “leopard is a neutral.” who am i to disagree?
of course, this is only a sampling of what’s in store for us as autumn steadily creeps its way into our lives. stay tuned as we revisit this topic in the weeks ahead. for now, grab your beverage of choice and scroll through what made this week’s list. happy sunday!

E.p.i.c. post!! I kept thinking…well this pic is the best…only to note that the next one was even better. Thank you for bringing your beautiful sense of style and may I say…refinement to the
blogging world. I look forward to your posts every day!!
Fun peek at Fall! Love so many of those outfits! You sure have a knack for styling! love to see how you put them all together. I have the leopard shoes….just never sure what to wear them with??
BEAUTIFUL as always!! Please share source. I do LOVE the first jacket. Thank You
the faux fur jacket is from anthropologie. it is roughly six to seven years old. for something similar look for ‘feathered’ jackets. they are still around, you just might have to wait another month or two for some of them to pop up.
Fabulous fall looks, Beth! You look amazing in every season!
Andrea’s Wellness Notes
i’m so happy that georgia celebrates all four seasons! can’t wait for the leaves to start changing colors.
Some great looks–I’m sure your predictions will be on target because they’re all pretty classic.
I admit I love living where we do get season changes as I love to mix up clothes for different temps. I’d miss that if I lived somewhere that was always one season.
i’m with you on the season changes. san francisco is an amazing city, but it doesn’t have the seasonal transition. i just love fall, and apple cider, and the leaves turning into a brilliant shade of orange. i’m so looking forward to all of that, and more!
