We all know that trends are cyclical, so it’s only natural that we reassess them as much as each new season because that is when we tend to update and clean out our wardrobe the most. There is nothing wrong with loving a trend so much that it becomes an everlasting staple in your rotation, just as there is nothing wrong with hopping on the bandwagon of a trend and abandoning it as soon as the novelty wears off.
As we head into fall, we are naturally seeing a turnover of trends and what’s going to be favored for the new season. It seems as though the most popular trends of the year are being set aside for updated versions and I must say that although I have been loving what we have seen this past year, it’s refreshing to see the updated styles for a new season.
Try Snakeskin Instead of Leopard Print
Leopard print has had a prominent revival this year, and not that we don’t love it, but the time has come to replace it with the newest animal print trend: snakeskin. This chic trend has slowly been outshining leopard print and is predicted to completely eclipse the summer trend come fall.

Don’t shoot the messenger, but with August 1st literally around the corner, we will soon be inundated with fashion for the upcoming fall season, both online and in stores.

So, I’ve bitten the bullet for you and rounded up 5 styles to look forward to next season. This fall is all about classic style, meaning you either already have it in your closet or you’ll be investing in pieces that you will be able to wear for seasons to come. Take a look at 5 classic fall styles to begin shopping for and investing in now.
Square Toe Boots
As the temperatures rise, bags seem to get smaller, i.e. the belt bag trend. So as it would go, as the temperatures lower in the fall, the bags will be getting larger. Invest in a roomy, versatile tote bag this fall to carry all your essentials.
Whenever a season is nearing its second half, my wardrobe can start to feel a bit stagnant. When I begin to notice that I am comfortable throwing on basically the same outfit each and every day, I know it is time to do a quick little wardrobe refresh! This refresh typically starts with cleaning out and organizing my closet, followed by a little bit of shopping for key styles that will instantly liven things up a bit. Rather than doing a full wardrobe overhaul, adding in some fresh and exciting pieces is the perfect way to breathe new life into the line-up you already have! Here are four styles that I keep my eye out for while shopping to revamp my wardrobe!
Invest in New Basics
Whether you shop for new color ways or different classic styles, adding some new basic pieces to your wardrobe will instantly make you look and feel refreshed! It is a simple wardrobe update that will go a long way, trust me!
An On-Trend Accessory
Add in a Hero Piece
Hero pieces are those standout styles in your wardrobe that you throw on and instantly feel like a million bucks! Shop for a bold jacket or even a pair of patterned pants that will be easy to mix and match with the styles you already love in your wardrobe.
Shoes are a great way to show some personality and with so many styles and colors out there, it will be simple to snag a pair that will liven up the outfits from the ground up! Pro-tip: Crossroads is my favorite place to snag a unique pair of footwear!
