Fall is right around the corner (can you believe it?!) and I am already crushing on all of the amazing fall trends that are heading our way – we’re talking gorgeous color palettes in blush + rust and trendy pieces that bring us back to the 90’s. With all the excitement around the fall trends, I am even more excited to share my favorite fall looks to love from Francesca’s Collection to have you prepped and ready for the most amazing season of all – fall!
To kick things off, let’s talk color. Blush is one of my all time favorite hues and the fact that it’s popping up everywhere in fall lookbooks is making ME blush! This is one of those colors that is so versatile and can be styled throughout the seasons. I am totally crushing on the blush pieces in Francesca’s fall collection such as this cropped blush sweater and corduroy jacket because not only do they work for fall, but I can guarantee you that I will be pulling out these pieces once spring rolls around, too.
Rust-orange, burgundy, mustard and olive are all classic fall favorites that are making their way around once again for fall styles. The best part about these fall tones is that they complement one another so well. This adorable ruffle skirt from Francesca’s is made up of cream, olive, burgundy and beige and perfectly ties in the cropped blush sweater for a complete look full of fall hues!
Must Have Pieces
This season we’re taking things back to the 90’s with button-up styles, cropped sweaters and plaid skirts. As a 90’s baby myself, I am taking every opportunity to step back into the good ole days and wear the trends we all loved and are loving once again.
Button-up styles are all the talk this fall whether it’s on a pair of jeans, a skirt or on a jumper – it’s a hot trend everywhere and a flattering one, too, if I do say so myself. The thing I admire most about button-up styles is that it adds that extra detail to a look. For example, when wearing button-up jeans or a skirt, try tucking in the front of your blouse or knotting your basic tee off to the side to show off the button detailing on the front of your jeans or skirt. A little shift in your outfit, such as that just mentioned, can make all the difference when it comes to style – and how easy is a simple tuck or tie?!
Plaid skirts are another favorite this season and are so fun to style. I loved mixing this plaid mini skirt with the blush sweater for a comfy yet casual look that was perfect for a morning spent at one of my favorite coffee shops in St. Paul. While I do love this look, another way to style this mini skirt while keeping the blush tones, would be to pair this skirt with the blush corduroy jacket and a neutral graphic tee for an edgier take on a girly style.
Before diving into my favorite fall accessories, we need to give our cropped sweaters some love. Because high-waisted button up bottoms are all the craze, it only makes sense that they would have the perfect fall sweater to compliment the look. From stripes and florals to solids and color blocking, this season we’re seeing so many fun prints and color combos making sweaters even more of a go-to style than they were before. I’ve already ordered 5+ sweaters for fall and it’s still August! Needless to say, I am pretty excited for all these fabulous fall trends.
The Perfect Fall Accessory
There was no way that I could wrap up this post without touching on my favorite fall accessories, because they are just too good! Every year I get super excited about fall accessories because they totally add the perfect final touch to an outfit. Panama hats, scarves, embroidered details, and booties (to name a few) are some of my go-to pieces when it comes to accessorizing my fall looks and Francesca’s had the perfect pieces to update my fall wardrobe.
Panama hats, in my opinion, are the easiest piece to add to an outfit to take it from 0 to 10. Throwing on a trendy hat with a simple tee and jeans adds so much to an outfit and gives you one less reason to worry about a bad hair day. I couldn’t resist adding this chic Panama hat to each of my Francesca’s looks because I really do think it made all the difference.
Booties are another fall fave, especially peep toe booties that act as the perfect transitional shoe from summer to fall. These taupe booties from Francesca’s are extremely comfortable and paired perfectly with each of my fall looks. Booties are fabulous because they can be styled with anything from dresses and skirts to jeans and paperbag pants – a total wardrobe staple!
Last but not least, embroidery is a trendy fall print that pops in every once and a while and this year it’s everywhere. I knew right away that I needed this embroidered crossbody in my wardrobe as I am always on the hunt for the perfect mid-size bag. This crossbody is a great size and is just right for everyday use and for those seeking an evening out accessory without the bulk of a big bag. The texture and details are absolutely gorgeous and add that extra pop to an everyday look.
I don’t know about you guys, but after wrapping up this post, I have major fall fever! While I am a huge summer gal and love the warm weather, fall definitely is my favorite season of all with the fun activities (hello, apple orchards!) and trendy threads. Whether you’re shopping for fall or thinking about it in the back of your head, I hope that you found some styling inspiration in this post and are just as excited about the upcoming fall trends as I am!
Thanks so much for reading – enjoy these final weeks of summer!
