any way to style a plaid piece. Whether it’s around your waist, as a dress,

or even styled with classic jeans, it’s a trend I am loving.”

“I love the big felt hat trend that we saw last winter. It’s already spilling into

this fall’s fashions and I hope to build up a collection of different colors

and sizes!”

Julia from Lemon Stripes

PLUM NAILS

“I have so many fave fall trends, but my number one has to do with nail.

lacquer. As the owner of Superstar Nail Lacquer, my favorite color for fall is

Posh Plum. It’s a rich burgundy hue. . . and it’s a great way to transition from

bright summer shades to darker ones!”

Ariana from Ariana’s Stylebook

COBALT

“Unexpected, vibrant hues are all the rage this fall. I’m definitely plunging

into cobalt.”

Willabelle from Pale Division

“Grunge is back for fall in a big way. Channel your inner Courtney Love and

embrace the flannel. Tie it around your waist or with deconstructed denim.

Either way you will be on trend and secretly oh-so comfortable.”

Kathleen from Kat Walk SF

LAYERS

“What I’m most excited about wearing this autumn is layers. The weather is

perfect to layer blazers, sweaters, or jackets and these pieces look great paired

with shorts, skirts, or jeans.”

“I’ve always been a bit of a sneaker head so it’s fun to see fashion embracing

the trend. . . I love pairing them with skirts and a tee for a more polished look. “

Danielle from Lou What Wear

comfortable are my go-to’s.”

Jo from Love Fashion Live Life

TUNIC

“Summer to fall style transitions can be a challenge. The key is to use simple

and classic piece and mix with some fun trends. I’m loving the tunic or

endless shirt trend this fall. It’s a great staple paired with some fabulous

accessories.”

Lulu from Simply Lulu

HUES

“One of my favorite trend for fall are “dusty hues”; pale blues, almost-baby

pink, and soft grays, like my midi pleated skirt from The Girl That Loves paired

with the brand’s soft knit crop. Together these colors can be played feminine

or edgy.”

Sahra from Que Sera Sahra

“For fall, glam sweatshirts, which started to make bigger waves last year, is

already out in full force.”
