Fall Trend Forecast

Summer may have only just begun, but tomorrow marks the start of July – AKA the month in which we in the fashion world begin to think about fall.  At this point, we’ve been talking about summer for months, and our minds are turning towards the months ahead and the style shift that comes with the new season.  Fall is always an exciting time for trends – some might even say the most exciting time.  After summer months spent shedding layers, just trying to bear the heat, it’s exciting to think about layering again, and doing it in a new way.  I find myself longing for heavier fabrics like denim, leather, and cozy sweaters to bundle myself up in.  I asked our Fashion Director to share some of the trends she is most excited about for fall – here they are, accompanied by some amazing illustrations by our graphic design team (they just so happen to be illustrations of our July catalog imagery – can you guess who the model is??).

Dark Western

fall trend forecast

This season we’re inspired by a Dark Western mood. We love outfitting with western-inspired hats, boots, harnesses, lace-up denim, duster jackets, and fringed capes. This is an edgy, moody take on western – we think it looks amazing when wearing just one or two elements paired back to something more basic like a simple white tee or an easy solid dress!


fall trend forecast

We’re all about showing off the legs this fall. We love the look of mini dresses, or mini skirts (or mini shorts!) worn with over-the-knee boots or socks, and the perfect slouchy cardigan or jacket. It’s such an easy transitional look to wear, since you’re mostly covered up!

Tarnished Metal

Metallic embellishment is big for us going into the new season. We’re loving encrusted studding on jackets, metal bead-work on sheer dresses, tarnished metal jewelry, or matte sequin-covered jogger pants. We love the rock’n’roll vibe that’s best worn in a laid-back way!

Borrowed from the Boys

fall trend forecast

This is a boyfriend tailored mood that we love paired with rugged denim this season. We have some amazing menswear blazers, tailored trousers, and over-sized coats that feel amazing to layer up for the fall. The look is so fresh when outfitted a bit slouchy and over-sized so it truly gives you the casual, undone vibe.

The Slip Dress

fall trend forecast

This is a 90’s throwback vibe that somehow feels so modern. We love taking vintage inspired, slim lined slips and layering them up for a cool day look. We love the slip dress worn with an oversized shirt, jacket, or cardigan, and the perfect little choker. We’ll have them in a range of prints and solids so you can choose how you’ll get the look!

Faux Fur

fall trend forecast 

A faux fur jacket is definitely a must have this season. We have so many fantastic options to choose from, from short shaggy sweater versions, to duster length leopard print, to an amazing hooded long-haired fur. They are the coolest topper to any outfit this fall from a casual denim day look, to layering over your mini dress on a night out.
