My Favorite 2019 Fall Trends

Do you take inspiration from the runway?  I try not to let it dictate my life and since the birth of blogging, I have always found myself taking more inspiration from real people more than anything.  Still, it’s really fun for me to see what these genius designers are concocting in their heads; and it’s even more fun for me to break it down and decipher it for my own wardrobe. (By the way, I still stand by my 2018 fall trends.)

Today, I’m taking on my five favorite trends from the fall/winter 2019 shows and showing how to wear them in real life (at lots of different price points!). Which one is your favorite?


Every season, a certain color has its moment and this year it’s green.  Runway reports are saying pistachio is the color du jour but I think any hue of green is trending right now.  Start subtly with forest green and move into different shades (if you’re new to green).

How to wear: a cozy teddy coat, an inexpensive patterned skirt, on-trend wide-leg chinos

Floral midi/maxi dresses

A prairie home companion has come full-circle.  Pair them with jackets, boots, or wear them alone!  You’ll feel pulled together AND comfortable.

How to wear: a dress with a golden hue, a dark and moody dress at a great price point, or this berry pretty maxi.

Fancy fleece

Yeah, your Patagonia fleece is trending, but make it fashion.  Fleecy, nubby jackets (see: teddy coats) have been on trend for the past few years but thanks to the athleisure movement, a sportier version has hit the runways! Wear with jeans and boots all fall.

How to wear: this inexpensive biker jacket, a leopard pullover, this traditional fleece, or this sporty camel version.

Mid-calf boots

Your ankles are cold from all the ankle booties you’ve been wearing the past five years.  Dress up your boots collection with a little mid-calf action; these look awesome with dresses and under cropped pants.

How to wear: These black suede booties with a low heel, this spicy color with a block heel, or a cowgirl-chic pair.

Boot-cut jeans  

Don’t be scared…these aren’t Britney low-rise jeans circa 2000.  As skinny jeans evolved into straight-leg and mom-jeans, silhouettes continued to widen and we’re back into boot-cut.  Flares make a resurgence a few years ago and I think what makes them fresh is the higher-rise. Will you give them a try?

How to wear: this burgundy hi-rise corduroy pair, or ease into the trend with this cropped pair, or this simple black chic pair.
