It may still only be July, but fall is right around the corner and it is almost time to start breaking out those sweaters, scarves and boots and stocking up on fall fashion items.
When a new season comes around, fashion experts have already predicted what the hottest trends will be. Some can be the same as last year, but there are always a few that are completely different.
These trends are able to be predicted by what major designers like Prada, Victoria Beckham, Calvin Klein and others present in their spring fashion shows.
Fashion experts are usually spot on, so here is a comprehensive guide to some trends to look out for this fall.
Basics are back, but do not be afraid to experiment with wild prints starting this fall.
A classic white tee is cute, comfy and can truly be dressed up or down. Pair a solid tee with statement jewelry that catches the eye. Add a bold lipstick or eyeshadow to truly make the outfit pop.
According to Vogue and W magazine, prints will also be just as in this season as the basics.
Some prints that you’ll be seeing around a lot this fall are checkered, plaids and animal prints. This look will for sure be a success this season in medium to long outerwear jackets according to Stylecaster.
The type of plaid that fashion designers are going for gives off a more 70s vibe, including browns with oranges, yellows and blues rather than purples, pinks and dark blues.
Velvet will be a popular fabric this fall. It was seen on nearly all the runways including those of Dior, Jason Wu and many more.
A dark-colored velvet dress will be perfect for any occasion this fall — such as weddings, Thanksgiving dinner, date nights or practically anywhere since it can be dressed up or down.
One trend that I think everyone can get behind is the crazy cozy trend for this fall, meaning oversized everything. This means big cocoon coats, oversized chunky sweaters, baggy track pants, etc.
I am particularly glad this trend is being more accepted because wearing tight clothes all day long isn’t fun for anyone. I would much rather have a big shirt on so I can be as comfortable while also looking cute and put together.
Along with the oversized clothes, oversized purses and bags will be in as well according to Nylon magazine. Top brands such as Gucci and Michael Kors featured huge bags on their runways this past spring.
I'm talking ones that you can practically fit your entire life into, or can even double as a weekender bag.
And last, the go-to color of the season will be red, similar to the past spring's color which was pink.
All over red was the go to monochromatic look for the runways. Sleek red coats at Givenchy and statement over-the-knee boots by Fendi were big hits.
Whether you are out shopping for back-to-school clothes, work clothes or just for some new outfits, keep these top trends in mind to be a trendsetter before everyone else jumps onboard.
