With summer drawing to an end and the temperature slowly dropping, that chill in the air means that the fall season is upon us. While we can’t do anything to keep the glorious days of summer around much longer, it’s time to embrace what’s ahead and get our closets ready for fall. While the runways at fashion week were filled with a ton of bold, new ideas for fall, here are some ‘wearable’ trends that are easy to incorporate into your wardrobe everyday. Best of all, you don’t have to spend a ton of money to look good!
While it’s no surprise that summer’s pastels are being replaced with deeper, jewel toned hues this fall, it’s burgundy that’s creating quite a big stir. Referred to as this season’s ‘black’, you’re sure to see deep plum and wine coloured tones pop up just about everywhere.

This style featuring pleated ruffles at the waistline first made it’s debut in spring, but this flattering trend continues well into fall.

CROCODILE & PYTHON
A touch of animal print (I prefer faux!) is all you need to take any outfit to the next level and this season it’s highly textured crocodile and python that are coming out on top. If you’re feeling shy about wearing it on a top or as a pair of pants, try some accessories like a great pair of shoes. A little is all you need this fall!
