Hottest Fall Trends

As a fashion & lifestyle blogger it's my duty to inform the world of the hottest fall trends. Well, I'm just going to say that's my duty. I spend a lot of time browsing designers' collections, viewing other bloggers' outfits, seeing what's hot hot hot. Fall has officially been here for almost 2 months, so I now have a grasp of some of the most popular trends this season. What are they? Lemme tell ya.

There are 5 things that I kept seeing over & over: animal prints of any kind, chunky knit sweaters, booties booties booties, faux fur everything & tartan. There you have it folks. Honestly, you could wear this entire look minus the dress & with only 1 pair of shoes. It works. 




Booties are not very groundbreaking, but they're stylish & useful. They're chic & versatile to sport for any occasion, yet they give off a warm fall vibe. Go for a natural color -- beige, brown, nude. Trust me on this one. 

Animal print is so in. I've seen an infinite about of leopard, giraffe, cheetah, tortoise shell, & the like. It doesn't matter what animal it's supposed to emulate, just as long as it's animal print. It doesn't matter if the print is for a dress, your shoes, or sunnies, just as long as it's animal print.

Faux fur is along the same lines as animal print. Doesn't matter what you're wearing -- coat, hat, scarf -- just as long as it's faux. I love faux fur because it's totally chic but without the cruelty. Hooray! Can't wait to bust out my faux fur jacket. 

Chunky knits are a fall & winter staple. Grannies have been knitting for centuries & this season is no different. Wear your chunky knit sweaters with pride. I've seen a lot of natural & nude colors, but you can rock a rainbow sparkle knit for all I care. Knit is knit.

Tartan is the new black. The pattern gives off an edgy vibe to spice up your look. What's the difference between plaid & tartan? I'm not a doctor or anything, but in short plaid is a garment, tartan is a pattern.

Just because it's cold out doesn't mean that you can't look hot! Which of these 5 hottest fall trends is your favorite? Leave a comment! :]

  36. I think my favorite trends would have to be faux fur (a winter infinity scarf would look amazing) and chunky knits (paired w/leggings = best outfit ever).
