Although I live in California where I experience a slightly warmer version of fall than some other places, it is still a season I look forward to every year! I love the general feeling of coziness and happiness as we all prepare for the upcoming holidays together. Not to mention, autumnal fashion always kills it! There is also a lot of newness to look forward to this season which brings me to today’s blog post topic – what the hottest fall trends will be. There is everything from glam sequins to minimal tailoring, as well as some repeats from last year like the iconic sweater vest. So before you jump into prepping for your FW21 wardrobe, you will want to read the below first. Without further ado, the top Fall 2021 fashion trends to keep on your radar.
Fall 2021 Fashion Trends to Keep on Your Radar
Fall 2021 Fashion Trends include Knits
This first trend is one that we saw introduced last year but it will definitely be a larger movement that will only continue to snowball as we transition into fall. I am talking luxe knits in the form of skirts, maxi dresses and coordinating two-piece sets. Lighter knits with ribbed detailing are items that will be ideal for transitioning from summer to autumn. Whereas, more thicker cable knits and cashmere fabrications make more sense as the temperatures drop further. These luxe knits are universally flattering and great for both cozying up at home or heading out to dinner.
Add Some Sparkles with Sequins
You guys know that my style tends to be more minimal and neutral but the glam girl that resides in me does love a bit of sparkle. The next fall 2021 fashion trend embodies all things opulences as we are obviously talking about sequins! This look definitely has Great Gatsby vibes, as the embellishments are on more sophisticated dresses, tops and jackets rather than micro clubbing dresses. So do not be intimidated by this trend! You will be surprised at how sophisticated sequins can look when on the right silhouette.
Wear the Tailored Trend this Fall
Tailoring is back again this fall and winter season. The name of the game with this trend is intentional layering. Blazers, trousers and suits are effective when worn separately but when they are combined to one entity, the result is empowering. Additionally, there is a larger emphasis on loose fitting tailored pieces for a more addrogynous aesthetic. You could always opt to keep it feminiene and pair with heels or vamp it up with thicker sole boots and platform loafers.
Layer with Sweater Vests
Speaking of layering, another fall 2021 trend that is returning is the vest. I am sure you all remember how this item quite literally took over instagram last year! Well, it is not going away anytime soon. Personally, I am so happy as I adore this layered look for autumn. Pair your sweater vests over button ups, dresses or even wear as is with some denim bottoms for a transitional sleeveless top. Don’t forget to dress it up with jewelry!
Animal Prints Included for Fall 2021 Fashion Trends
The last fall 2021 trend I wanted to relay in this blog post was the resurgence of animal print. We all know and love the mature cheetah print and it will continue to play a paramount role in terms of pattern this fall. However, the animal trend is expanding to zebras, tiger stripes and cow prints. However, just like the above sequin trend, there is a fine line between gaudy and classy. Keep to tonal prints on flattering styles to ensure the animal trend gets translated as timeless and as classic as possible!
Those are the top Fall 2021 fashion trends I am most excited for! Which one is your favorite?
