Every season, there are of course new trends that have entered into, or returned to, the vast world of fashion. However, this season is particularly special because it’s the season where you can layer your clothing, wear oversized sweaters and buy extravagant coats. Fall is my favorite season in general, but it’s also my favorite fashion season. Now that the fall trends have finally been settled, I’m here to advise you which ones are worth buying and which ones aren’t.


   Denim on denim is my unequivocal favorite of the current fall fashion trends. The fluent beauty of pairing 4 shades of denim side by side creates an eye catching look that won’t be forgotten. I love how utterly weird it looks. And the best part is that anyone can do it. Everyone has jeans and almost everyone has a jean jacket. Mixing and matching all the different textures and slightly different colors together for some reason creates a look that I can’t deny as being my ultimate fav.

Denim on denim on denim is a YES YES YES from me.


   The first fall trend of 2016 that caught my eye a while back was the denim with a frayed or cut off hem. This trend appealed to me because it’s different than the classic rips up the leg, it’s a rip at the hem where the jeans cut off. Just when I thought I couldn’t distress my jeans any more, this trend came along. Now I’ve been cutting the ends off my jeans like there’s no tomorrow. This trend is effortless, one of my favorites of this fall and all you have to do to achieve the look is cut off the end of your favorite jeans.

This trend is a YES.


   Another trend that’s easy to achieve is the slip-dress layered over a casual tee. You’ve probably all seen this trend everywhere, and that’s not just because it’s in this season, it has risen from the dead! We’ve seen it before in 2007 on Lindsay Lohan and Miley Cyrus during what I like to call the Dark Age of Fashion. I never thought any trend from 2005-2007 would make a reappearance, but this one did and I want it to stay. It’s a funky trend that may take some getting used to, but I think there’s something appealing about its effortlessness. It’s the most simple way to make a dress casual; put it over a t-shirt.

This trend is a definite YES.


   The off-the-shoulder top is a trend that we all know too well. This trend has unfortunately carried over from summer into fall, and I think it’s time for it to go. It looks fantastic in the summer time, don’t get me wrong, but it’s not a look made for fall. Its exposed shoulder and flowy fit is made for hot summer days. Some may not agree, but I think this trend has run its course and is a little over rated.

This trend is a NO from me.
