Chasing Davies: Five trends for fall you need to try!

September 23, 2013

Five trends for fall you need to try!

These five trends are getting me excited for the temps to drop and fall to really get here (weather-wise).  Preggo or not, I'll be giving each of these five trends a try and rotating into my current fall/winter wardrobe.  I have to admit, it'll probably be a little more fun to don these looks sans giant baby bump (post-November), but a girl has to do what she's gotta do for the time being.  In my opinion, one of the best things about a new season is switching up the closet routine and stretching your creativity.
So, here are my favorite five trends for the new season!  What are yours?

1. Camo
Camo and military styles started popping up last fall and have been picking up steam to be in just about every store and available by every brand you can imagine!  So if you haven't tried out this trend yet, this is the time to do it! My favorite thing about military style is how surprisingly easy and fun it is to mix with extra feminine or chic pieces for a contrasting or polished look.  A few of my favorite camo & military pieces:

2. Plaid
You can't ever get away from plaid, especially for cooler months, it's just the perfect pattern to rotate in as the temperatures drop.  Add a plaid shirt to your basic jean for the weekend, under your favorite suit or blazer for work or tucked into your favorite party skirt (like a sequined one!) with heels.  Experiment with other plaid pieces, too! Some of my favorite plaid pieces available right now:
3. Leather Details
Not everyone can wear full-on leather pants (faux or the real deal), nor does everyone have/want to spend that kinda cash on the piece, but getting pieces with leather details is way more doable and super chic.

4. Metallic Oxfords & Punchy Loafers
I've already fallen for this trend, and fallen hard! I love my metallic oxfords and have worn them many times already (see here and via Instagram captures here and here - pay no attention to the preggo swollen ankles). You're sure to seen them a bit more here on the blog and on Instagram.  
5. Sporty Pieces
This might be the most comfortable trend ever  I mean, trading in the heels for sneakers or dressing up sweat pants? Count me in.  Bad hair day? Top it off with a baseball hat. Lots of ways to add a little sporty into your look - just make sure to balance the sporty with the chic/girly so you don't look like a slob. :)  Here are a few sporty pieces to add into your style:
