Fall is quickly approaching! Soon, it will be time to embrace the rapidly cooling climate, watch as all the leaves turn golden brown, and, of course, go back to school. I’m going to be starting my Freshman year as a Fashion Merchandising major, so I definitely have to restock my closet with all of fall’s hottest pieces. Here are the top 5 trends for this upcoming season:
1. Fur Coats
Fur coats have been popping up everywhere in pop culture fashion. In the amazing, “Feeling Myself” music video, Bey is wearing a gorgeous brown fur coat over a leotard. Guys rock the trend, too! In cold weather, Justin Bieber’s almost always spotted in coats with fur. Whether it’s full fur, or just a furry hood, this look’s gonna be super popular this fall.
Here are some awesome options for you guys to browse:
2. Neoprene Sweatshirts
Like we talked about in our Bathing Suit Edition, neoprene suits were killing it — everyone was obsessing over Triangl. This fall, that trend is translating into warmer wear. Neoprene is definitely one of my fave fabrics, and although it can be expensive, I definitely reccommend copping something neoprene this season.
Here are some super cute sweatshirts to try out:
3. Cape Coats
So, this trend is probably the funkiest of the bunch. Recently, capes have been dominating high fashion runways — most of the latest runway shows have had some version of a cape in them. Unfortunately, this trend hasn’t quite trickled it’s way down to more affordable stores yet. There are definitely some retailers that carry gorgeous, inexpensive capes, but for the most part it’s hard to find outside of high-end designer boutiques. But, if you can find an affordable cape, definitely buy it, because this trend’s gonna be big!
Here are some really cool capes for you guys:
Unlike some of the other trends on this list, turtlenecks have been around forever. However, this fall they’re coming back in full force! Retailers all over have new, funky turtlenecks that I’m falling even more and more in love with. Like chokers, they may not be the most comfortable, but sometimes beauty is pain, ha!

5. Sweater Dresses
Everyone has their favorite cable knit sweater, and, similarly, everyone has their favorite dress. The sweater dress combines both of these into one ultra-cute fashion item: the sweater dress! This look is honestly just adorable, and it can combine beautifully with any of the aforementioned trends, ie. the turtleneck sweater dress. In cold weather, simply pair this dress with leggings or tights for an insanely cute and comfortable ensemble.
