If you like keeping up with the latest trends, look for elevated basics like button-up shirts, tailored jackets, vests, wide-leg jeans, and trousers for fall. These are trends we can all take advantage of and are easy to style. Take a look below, I’ve highlighted 5 fall trends I love, and I think you will find one or two you like too.

1. Bold Red

There’s a hot new color for fall. It’s a bold red that adds interest to any outfit. There are many options to choose from, whether you wear a red power suit or dress or want to add some interest to your outfit with a red handbag or shoe.

Take a look at some other pieces that caught my eye! I like the idea of adding a red scarf, giving a nod to the trending color.

2. Lady Jacket

I’m looking forward to wearing the lady jacket trend this fall. It’s so versatile—you can wear it as a top, layer it over a tank, or pair it with jeans, trousers, or a dress. Watch for tweeds, knits, stripes, or denim this season. It’s a trend worth having in your wardrobe. One of my favorite ways to wear the J. Crew Emilie striped jacket is draped over my Vince slip dress.

3. Button-up Shirt

The button-up shirt is trending and a classic item for your wardrobe. As we transition into fall, it doubles as the perfect layering piece.

Here are other styles that are fun and interesting. I always like to add a stripe shirt to my wardrobe. Wear it open over a tank as we transition into cooler weather.

4. Vests

Vests were a hot trend throughout summer, carrying right into fall. I love their versatility. You can wear them as shirts or layer them over a T-shirt or blouse. The knit options are also fashionable and add a cozy layer for fall.

I like how vests add another layer of interest to an outfit. Here are more options to choose from.

5. Skirts

I’m a huge fan of skirts and am thrilled to share that maxi, denim, pleated, and slip skirts are all trending styles for fall. They’re incredibly versatile and are easy to style with a button-up shirt, shell, blazer, or lady jacket.

  1. Thank you, Sandy, for making fashion so accessible to me, an average woman in the midwest! Your outfit ideas inspire me to shop my closet. You also show how women of all ages can wear the trends of the season.

  2. Hi,
    I would love to see a photo of the J. Crew striped lady jacket with your Vince slip dress, as you mentioned. I have that dress so am looking for options to style it.

    • Hi Janice,
      I’m wearing the J. Crew Lady jacket on my IG reel today, Aug 24th.
      I think you will like it styled over the Vince Slip Dress.
