Six fall fashion trends to watch

Not sure where to start with your fall fashion closet update? We've broken down six of the season's hottest trends to help you out.

Oxfords - Designer Inspiration:

Pour La Victoire Women's Masha Oxford

Pink suede! These French-inspired oxfords are a shoelover's dream and take us back to the 18th century in the best way possible. Available at Endless.

DV Mini Lace-Up Oxford

These oxfords are chic on their own but when paired with dark-washed skinny jeans and a cream sweater, they really pop. Available at Dolce Vita.

Steve Madden 'Jazie' Oxford

Just because you have a million back-to-school parties planned for September, it doesn't mean that your feet have to suffer in platform pumps. These are just as attention-grabbing but way more comfortable. Available at Nordstrom.

Bass Maebird

Robin eggs and lemon meringue come to mind when thinking of these beauties. Your outfit is sure to look just as cute. Available at Zappos.

Mossimo Osanna Flat in Leopard

Here is an affordable option from Mossimo, in leopard, as an alternative to Dolce Vita's cheetah print oxfords. Hooray for neon soles! Available at Target.

 

Contrast + Colorblock - Designer Inspiration:

Givenchy Red-Sleeve Tweed Jacket

Paired with a slicked back pixie cut, this look definitely works during fashion week and also for settling serious business decisions between vampires. Available at Ssense.

Sparkle Sleeve Blazer

Party time! With its cropped sleeves, this blazer is perfect to throw over your shoulders after your dinner date as the air has gotten chilly while you inside were making eyes. Available at Necessary Clothing.

Baseball Style Jacket

Take a lesson from the boys with this sleek baseball jacket-inspired piece. The dual-tone combo keeps the look sleek, not casual. Available at Mango.

Contrast Color Chiffon Shirt

If you like the sporty trend but not the usual textures or fabrics, try this chiffon shirt as an alternative. Plus, the matching buttons are a cute touch. Available at Romwe.

Trimmed Blazer

Elevate your all-black suit and LBD with this rosy leopard-cuff blazer to keep things girlie and glam. Available at Nasty Gal.

 

Bold Necklaces - Designer Inspiration:

Etro Crystal-Embellished Gold-Plated Necklace

For the lovers of all things shiny, intricate, and elegant, put this on your holiday wishlist. Available at Net-a-Porter.

Faceted Stone Charm Necklace

Just because it's fall, it doesn't mean you have to put away your neon accessories just yet. Pair this necklace over your favorite LBD for a fun party look. Available at Romwe.

Interwoven Drawstring Choker

This elegant crescent choker can be dressed up and down for a variety of occassions. Try it with your favorite chambray button down or with a floor-length teal dress for equally divine looks. Available at Mango.

Stoned Fringe Necklace

This is the necklace to end over accessorizing forever! Show your true colors with this bold piece but make sure to keep your other baubles (minus a dainty ring) in the jewelry box. Available at Nasty Gal.

Sonja Silver Statement Necklace

This intricate silver necklace is best highlighted when worn with monochromatic pieces but can be paired with a colorblocked outfit for the more daring. Available at Necessary Clothing.

 

Leather - Designer Inspiration:

Box Pleat Leather Skirt

If you are a sucker for pleated skirts like me, you might have trouble saying “no” to this chick leather mini in a gorgeous camel tone. Available at Alice and Olivia.

ASOS Premium Skirt in Pleated Leather

If the Alice and Olivia skirt has captured your heart but not your wallet, try this more affordable mini from ASOS that can transform easily from girly to rocker chic. Available at ASOS.

Rocco Dress

This vegan leather-topped party dress by Ladakh successfully mixes the biker chic and free spirit in you. Rock on! Available at Nasty Gal.

Vegan Patent Leather Skirt

This skirt is friendlier than the rest with its vegan materials, but the patent treatment is just as sexy! Available at H&M.

Spartans Sheer Leggings

These are not your average yoga-bound leggings. For the brave, try this sheer paneled number to amp up your party-bound tunics. Available at Black Milk Clothing.

Floral Printed Skirt

This skirt is a perfect candidate if you want to try the matchy matchy winter white look that is super trendy for this fall. Available at H&M.
