Seven Fall 2013 Fashion Trends Worth Trying

As Labor Day approaches, everyone has their eyes set on Fall.

September will bring cooler weather (hopefully), beautifully colorful trees–and exciting fashion trends.

Here are seven must-have looks I’ve got my eye on as Summer makes its exit.

fall-2013-trends-leather

Leather is the new denim this season.

Faux-leather and authentic leather apparel in various colors and styles give looks an edgy, rocker vibe.

I’m a huge fan of the burgundy hue.

fall-2013-trends-ankle-strap-heels

The ankle strap heel dominated Summer and will also be around for the Fall.

It’s a sleek shoe option that pairs well with casual and dressier looks, and a perfect pedicure.

fall-2013-trends-black-and-white

Life’s better in black and white this season–and it gets even more exciting when prints and patterns are involved.

I’m not only in love with black-and-white menswear-inspired looks but also with flirty, feminine bodycon styles.

fall-2013-bold-gold-accessories

I love dramatic accessories so Fall  jewelry trends suit me well.

I’m looking forward to playing up simple looks with bold, gold accessories with fun, chunky links.

fall-2013-trends-athletic-inspired-wear

When I first spotted athletic-inspired wear in this season’s lookbooks, I was on the fence.

I still haven’t embraced every style in the tomboy-meets-90s trend. However, I’m willing to give some a try on occasions when comfy-casual looks are appropriate.

fall-2013-animal-print

This Fall definitely belongs to the felines.

I plan to turn to animal-print accessories to play up simple or dated outfits in need of that extra oomph.

Why accessories? Because they’re usually more affordable than apparel and have a more economical cost per wear.

fall-2013-skater-dress

I’m saying “yes” to the skater dress this Fall.

In bright colors, subdued hues and patterns, it’s already my go-to look.

I wore this comfortable but cute look to business meetings, to church, to dinner and to school during the Summer. I plan to pair them with jackets and tights as temperatures dip.
