7 Fall Trends You Can (and Should) Start Wearing Right Now

Between back-to-school shopping and Nordstrom’s amazing anniversary sale, we’ve gotten ourselves all in a tizzy over fall fashion and the gorgeous trends the cooler weather has in store. But you don’t have to wait for the leaves to start changing color to jump in on the fun. Here, seven trends you can buy now and actually wear now.

VELVET

Sweating in a velvet dress? Not so cute. Accessorizing with velvet shoes and a crossbody? Adorable.

BOLD RED

Fall will have you seeing, well, red. Think: Shades ranging from rich burgundy to candy apple (you know, like Michael Jackson’s jacket in the Thriller music video). Wear it now with your favorite millennial pink pieces for a fresh color mix.

’80S-INSPIRED BLAZERS

Power shoulders are back (and we’re not mad about it). The longer lengths and double-breasted buttons sit perfectly atop raw hem jeans and a loose white tee.

MOODY FLORALS

As in, less delicate pastel rose buds and more purple twisted vines. Slay, girl, slay.

TRACK PANTS

We’re not talking about the velour sets of the early aughts. The 2017 version is sleek and, dare we say, chic. Pair with a button-up and heels and head off to the office in comfort.

MAXIMALIST FOOTWEAR

Whether they’re sequined brogues, metallic jacquard booties or stain platforms, embellished shoes are the stars of the sidewalk this coming season. Keep everything else minimal so they’ll really stand out.

PAPER BAG WAISTS

One of our favorite fall trends, this ultra-flattering waistline works on just about every body type because it nips right at your smallest part (and offers a touch of breathing room at the top).
