Below, One Brass Fox blogger, Leslie Musser, shares eight back-to-school looks to snatch up ahead of the fall season. Sadly, a few of the pieces have already started selling out, but the good news is that you can easily search similar buzzwords on your favorite e-commerce sites to customize the look for yourself! Which trend will you be trying come autumn?
Here in New England, we’re getting the first hints of fall. Mornings are chillier, the sun goes down earlier, and pumpkin spice lattes are already trending. What that also means is those back-to-school sales are in full swing. And transitioning your wardrobe for the coming season is a perfect excuse to stock up on fall’s top trends. So today, I’m sharing a few styles that have made their way to my ‘favorites’ list and will definitely be on repeat for months.
This versatile outerwear option adds a touch of vogue to any look. Whether jeans and a tee or a sexy LBD, adding a flowy layer gives the look that sense of Parisian chic. (Resources: similar coat, tank, jeans, sneakers)
If ever there’s proof that trends come back around, this is it. Victorian-style tops are making a major resurgence with buttons up the back, lace insets and eyelet detailing. They’re the sweetest option to add femininity into fall dressing. (Resources: top, similar skirt, flats, sunglasses)
Kick Flare Denim:
Some might be tempted to ask, “Where’s the flood?” but this barely cropped trend is still on-point. It provides an alternative to skinny jeans and transitions easily from warm days to cool nights. (Resources: sweatshirt, jeans, sandals, similar purse)
Lace-up sandals have been all the rage for summer, and now it’s time to take that detailing to other parts of the closet—like dresses, pants or tops! This unique closure style offers a nod to bohemia without going full-on flower power. (Resources: dress, similar heels, bag, sunglasses, lipstick)
Boring hems are a thing of the past and funky angles are making their way in. This added-flounce on any wardrobe item gives an outfit that extra oomph. It acts as a built-in accessory for understated drama, and this season they’re just about everywhere (think: bags, pants, tops and dresses). (Resources: similar top, heels)
Nope, it’s not New Year’s season just yet, but the sparkle factor has already made its debut. This trend doesn’t pick up on sequins, per se, but it highlights silver, gold and copper sheens on fabrics. (Resources: sweatshirt, camisole, jeans, heels, necklace)
When people say, “Slip into something more comfortable,” I feel fairly confident that backless loafers are exactly what they mean. Or, if they don’t mean that yet, they will once they try a pair. These shoes blend comfort with effortless style for everyday wear. (Resources: similar top, jeans, similar loafers)
Applique is all about bringing attitude back to handbags. It’s a far cry from boring and offers a punch of personality to any clutch, tote or crossbody bag. (Resources: jacket, similar dress, heels, bag, lipstick)
