Trends are fluid.
That is one big fashion lesson I try to teach my clients.
With every season comes new trends and it’s no secret how excited I’ve been for this fall. I’ve posted about my favorite trends countless times in the last few weeks- even braving 115 degree heat wearing layers to get those photos… lol.
This season there are so many trends to fall in love with that it’s hard to settle on just one and you don’t have to! You CAN wear multiple trends at the SAME TIME. You have probably already been doing it and didn’t even realize!
Because of the fluidity of trends combining them can create a look that is not only visually interesting but also unique and packed with your own personal style!
Don’t know where to begin? Pairing trends is easy once you get the hang of it. To get your started, I put together a few of my guidelines and tips that will have you rockin’ multiple fall trends together at once like a fashion pro.
- Pick a Statement Piece to be the focal point of your look. Having one statement piece like this allows you to strategically work the remainder of your outfit around one theme. Whether you’re highlighting a fun print or a unique cut, this will serve as the anchor to your look.
- Combine high with low new with old. Keeping up with trends doesn’t always have to be expensive. I’m a huge fan of mixing old pieces with new and fast-fashion, vintage and thrifted pieces with luxe brands.
- Make a Color Story. Use one color to carry through and tie it all together. Choosing a complementary color palette will help keep your trending looking streamlined.
- Know What Works For You. Confidence is key. If you like it, wear it and rock it! People respond to and are drawn to confidence! So, if you’re feeling it, everyone else will too!
Fall 2018 is packed with fun trends so I put together a look featuring four of my favorites: Western Inspired, Plaid, 90s grunge and Florals.
This gorgeous floral dress from Smak Parlour is my Statement Piece. I paired it with a Western Inspired denim jacket, suede bag and bandana then layered in 90’s grunge-esc combat boots and a plaid shirt which hits both the 90’s grunge and the plaid trend. The plaid shirt ties in the red from the floral print to help bring the look together.
Four trends, one cohesive look! Give it a try!
What trends will you be combining this Fall?
Stylist’s Tip: It’s time to dust off those Dr. Martens you wore in college- combat boots are back as one of Fall’s hottest shoe trends!
