Need a Wardrobe Makeover? 11 Fall Fashion Trends You Need This Year

The transition from summer to fall is always bittersweet.

On one hand, you're not thrilled to see the warm weather go and to pack away your tank tops. On the other hand, who doesn't love an excuse to update their wardrobe?

Before you venture out on a couture quest, do your homework by finding out about the latest fall fashion trends. Keep reading to learn more. 

1. Square: Not So Rare

Necklines evolve from one season to the next, and this fall is no exception. Make way for the square-cut neckline.

The necklines are flattering for anyone. We expect to see them in all depths and sizes, allowing anyone to feel comfortable from one setting to the next.

Better yet, a square neckline is the perfect way to showcase your favourite necklace or choker. A necklace that dangles just below your collarbone is a perfect choice.

2. The Cape Craze

The cape trend made waves last winter and it seems to be making a resurgence this year.

For those who prefer wider, flowing silhouettes, a free-floating cape will be your best friend. Prefer more structure? Opt for the sophisticated look of a belted cape instead.

The same goes for ponchos: add your go-to thin belt for a stylish look.

3. Denim Drama

Denim isn't going anywhere as a wardrobe staple for your bottom half. This fall, though, denim jackets will be getting their moment in the spotlight too.

One of the most popular trends this fall will be a return to 90s looks. If you want that "grunge" style, you can't go wrong with an oversized denim jacket.

Prefer a more modern, sophisticated aesthetic? Go with a tailored and structured denim jacket instead. Complement it with a pair of black leggings and boots and you're ready to go.

4. Leopard Love

Whether you're a cat person or a dog person, everyone can get in on this year's leopard-print trend.

The leopard pattern is coming to every part of your wardrobe this year. Leopard-print shoes and accessories are always popular. For a bolder look, choose a leopard-print coat, skirt, or sweater.

One of our favourite facts about leopard-print is that it's practically a neutral. You can pair it with black, red, white—almost any colour under the sun.

There is one rule, though: other than white or the traditional colour palette, stay away from colourful leopard-print. That is one trend that's staying in the past for now.

5. Scarfing it Down

It wouldn't be fall without a great selection of scarves. Which styles should be at the front of your closet this year?

Fall 2019 is all about sleek silk scarves. Depending on your personal style, both light and fluffy silk scarves and short, 1950s-style silk scarves will be popular choices.

Unless you're trekking through the snow, leave behind the thick, chunky scarves that were on-trend last year.

6. Fall Florals

There's no denying that floral prints were everywhere this summer. If you're sad to pack them into storage for the cooler weather, we have good news.

The floral trend isn't going away. It is changing, though.

Opt for more fall-focused florals, like floral prints in darker colours. Larger floral patterns appear to be having a moment too, but finer patterns still have their place.

Think flowers are just for the ladies? Think again. There is a growing trend in floral prints for men too. 

7. Old-School Structures

When it comes to fashion, it isn't all about colours and patterns. Sometimes the trend is in the shape alone. 

This fall, retro shapes will be everywhere. In particular, the silhouettes of the 1970s and 1950s will be at the peak of style.

This isn't surprising considering the fact that high-waisted bikinis have flooded the fashion scene for the past few summers. For those who like to play with different time periods, look for items that use retro cuts with more modern materials.

8. Mad for Plaid

Okay, it isn't exactly revolutionary for plaid to be a popular fall trend. 2019 is taking it to a whole new level, though.

In keeping with those retro trends, some people are pairing multiple types of plaid together. If you prefer a more understated look, opt for a single plaid accent piece and stick with solids for the rest of your outfit.

While plaid scarves were the hot fashion item last year, the trend has shifted this year. Plaid is becoming more of a feature on prominent garments like trousers and blazers. Plaid shoes will be everywhere this fall as well. 

9. Midi Mania

Want a way to add some femininity to your fall wardrobe? Look no further than the midi skirt trend.

Midi skirts, if you aren't familiar, land halfway between the knees and the ankles. They're a growing trend for this fall, whether they're in leather, suede, or countless other choices.

For the best fall look, pair your midi skirt with great ankle boots.

10. Flair is Fair Game

Last fall and winter were all about fitted skinny jeans, all the time. We're excited to see more variety in 2019's fall forecast.

In particular, flared jeans are making a comeback. If you want a lighter flare, bootcut jeans are classics that flatter anyone.

This doesn't mean you should pack up your versatile black leggings. Leggings aren't going anywhere, but get ready to see more flair coming into the mix.

11. Luxe Leather

Is there any more luxurious and high-end material than leather? We think not.

If you're a fan of leather, you're in luck because it's on-trend in a big way this fall. Feel free to experiment by pairing contrasting leather separates together, like a white leather top with a brown leather skirt.
