Autumn is rapidly approaching and we just cannot wait. Get ready for pumpkin spice, cooler weather, and most importantly—fall fashion.

Fall is one of the best seasons for creating statement looks. If you’re interested in adding a few trending pieces to your wardrobe, here are a few must-have fall apparel styles.

Shearling Jackets

Shearling is trending for this fall season. Not only will this jacket style keep you cozy as temperatures drop, but it is such a cool look as well. Pair this warm, fuzzy jacket with virtually any style to add an instant flare. We adore that this style of jacket takes your standard denim jacket to a whole new level by just adding some shearling. 

Shop the trend:

Kitten Heel Boots

Instead of platforms or sky high heels, make the switch to a pair of kitten heel boots. This trend is exciting because it means saying goodbye to pain and hello to comfortable, stylish shoes.

Shop the trend:

Fringe Everything!

This season we are seeing a lot—and we mean a lot—of fringe. Western influences were all over the Fall 2018 runways, so hop aboard the trend with a fun fringe jacket or suede fringe skirt.

Shop the trend:

Clueless-Style Plaid

Plaid has been a fall staple for years and years, but instead of its usual muted form, go bright this season with checks straight out of Cher Horowitz's adorably 90s closet. Plaid skirts, two-pieces, and dresses are so popular right now, especially in stunning yellows and bold reds.

Shop the trend:

Cropped Jeans

Cropped Jeans are perfect for fall, especially if you live in a mild climate where the weather doesn't cool down too much. This denim style gos perfectly with countless tops—button-towns, blouses, and even crop tops!

Shop the trend:

Suede Crossbody Purses

One of the most perfect bags for fall is a vintage-inspired suede crossbody. This bag instantly takes any ensemble into the autumnal season.

Shop the trend:

Dainty Gold Necklaces

Gold dainty necklaces are timeless, but elegant and long necklaces are especially suited for the fall.

Shop the trend:

Makeup in Warm Colors

This fall, aim to incorporate warm, rustic tones that resemble the changing leaves of the season. Try a bright orange lipstick or warm-tone eyeshadow palette.

Shop the trend:

Animal Print

Unleash your wild side with bold animal prints this season. Whether you rock a leopard print coat or zebra print dress, dare to be a statement maker. Don't be afraid to mix two different animal prints, too!
