5 Trends to Consider Adding To Your Fall Wardrobe

Fall 2017 Fashion Trends

Yesterday we talked about fall wardrobe essentials, and today I thought we could talk about some of the fun fall 2017 fashion trends we may want to incorporate into our closets this year.

While I’ll spend a little more on the basics that will see a lot of wear and tear and hopefully be in my closet for years to come, trendy pieces like the ones I’m sharing in today’s post are the ones I recommend trying to find at more budget-friendly prices so I kept everything under $100.

I talk a lot about cost per wear when I’m discussing trying to justify pricier purchases, but it’s just as pertinent when buying trendy pieces. If I’m only going to wear those floral velvet booties three times, I definitely don’t want to break the bank to purchase them! Obviously, you can splurge on these items if you want to and if you think you’ll get your money’s worth, but definitely feel free to try a cheaper version first to be sure you really love them and will wear them a lot.

5 Fall 2017 Fashion Trends {Under $100}

1. Loafer Mules / Slide Loafers

Fall 2017 Fashion Trends - Loafer Mules

I confessed in yesterday’s post that I’ve never been much of a loafer girl, but I have to admit, this trend is growing on me. In fact, I’m planning a trip to the mall today to try on a few and hopefully purchase a pair so I can try styling them. These look great with ankle jeans, cropped jeans, shorts, and even some skirts and dresses (although I prefer them with cropped jeans.)


2. Spruce Green

Fall 2017 Fashion Trends: Spruce Green

Earlier this week, I styled spruce green jeans four ways, but this color isn’t just for denim. I’m seeing shades of evergreen in handbags, shoes, jeans, jackets, dresses, sweatshirts, sweaters, and more. This shade of green tends to read as a neutral and it coordinates well with other neutrals and also pastels in the pink and orange tones.


3. Metallics

Fall 2017 Fashion Trends: Metallic

You’ll see this trend everywhere this fall — and not just in shoes, although that is definitely the way I prefer to wear my metallics. I included a bunch of examples below, to give you an idea of what’s out there. I’m not sold on this one just yet, but maybe it will grow on me. If nothing else, I may like it for the holidays.


4. Florals and Embroidered Accents

Fall 2017 Fashion Trends: Florals and Embroidered Accents

This is a trend I will implement sparingly (or not at all, lol!!) but I wanted to include it because it is HUGE this season. I am seeing embroidered floral details on shoes, handbags, jeans, and jackets, as well as a lot of floral velvet in the shoe department. This is fun and definitely makes a statement, but it isn’t for everyone. (I’m not sure it’s for me, but maybe it will grow on me.)

Like all trends, it is up to you whether or not you participate and how heartily you want to embrace it. I’m having a hard time keeping these pieces under $100, but I also don’t think I’d want to spend a lot on them because it seems like a fleeting trend.


5. Straight Crop Jeans

Fall 2017 Fashion Trends: Straight Crop Jeans

Now this is a trend I may be able to get behind. I touched on this yesterday in my fall wardrobe essentials post, but the newest trend in denim that I’m noticing is the straight crop/girlfriend/slim boyfriend/relaxed skinny jean. There are lots of names for this style, but basically it’s a pair of jeans that is ankle length or a little shorter (26″-28″ inseam) and the leg has a more relaxed straight cut.

These jeans look great with ankle boots, mules, and slides — all of which are trending right now. Usually they have a higher rise and look best with a top that is tucked in or provides some structure to offset the more relaxed fit on the bottom. This is definitely something I want to play around with, but I have a feeling I am going to like the ones that fit closer to the body. Fortunately there is a lot of variety within this style so you can find the fit that works best for you.


What do you think of these trends? Are there any you plan to experiment with? Which is your favorite?
