Who else has been living vicariously through the fashion bloggers who were living it up at Fashion Week? I know I have been! Watching their stories from the fashion shows and seeing their trendy fall outfits got me thinking about the Fall Trends I am most excited about.

When it comes to fashion I’m not much of a risk taker, of course I enjoy trendy pieces but I prefer versatile pieces that I can actually wear in this small town I live in. For me stepping outside of the box means finally giving in and buying that faux leather jacket (check) and that velvet wrap dress I’ve been eyeing (I’m almost there.) So, even though you won’t be seeing me rocking runway looks I’m still hoping to step outside of my comfort zone and try a few new things this season.

Here are 7 Fall Trends that I am actually excited to wear and fall in love with and of course everything linked is under $100! 

Wearable Fall Trends



1. Velvet
I’ve never been a huge fan of velvet, but something clicked when I saw an amazing gold  dress on one of my favorite bloggers, but wouldn’t you know it was sold out when she shared it so I’m still on the hunt for that perfect velvet addition to my closet. I know I’m going to find it, and when I do it’s going to be perfect for our family photos. If you’re not looking to cover yourself in the trend then maybe a dress or jumpsuit isn’t the piece for you- don’t worry, because velvet is everywhere, so maybe booties, a handbag, jacket or simple top may be the answer for you.

2. Utility
Sure, we see utility jackets and vests every year around this time- but it looks like we will be seeing a lot more out of this military inspired fashion trend this year- and I’m not complaining. I’ve already been on the hunt for a great vest and I received a contender in my Nordstrom Trunk earlier this week. If you love this style you’re in luck because there may be a military takeover with olive and khaki everywhere!

3. Chocloate Brown
I love rich colors in the fall and nothing makes me think fall more than burgundy and brown- so I am beyond excited to see a storm of browns on the runway.

4. Dark Romantic Florals
Hello gorgeous, this is a trend I am truly excited for. I love feminie floral pieces so seeing them in those beautiful rich fall colors makes my heart so happy! 

5. Blazers
In the past I’ve talked a little about my love for blazers, so you know I’m excited to see blazers take on a new shape this fall. While the classic and the more relaxed style is probably always going to be an easy favorite for me, it is exciting to see this classic women’s workwear piece take on fun new styles like velvet and plaid!

6. Sporty Chic.
It’s really no surprise to me that we are seeing more sporty trends and I can totally get behind this. As a former athlete and busy mom I’m all about comfort- now chances are you won’t see me decked out in a track suit but you will most definitely see an addition of more athleisure wear to my wardrobe.

7. Leggings.
Leggings were everywhere at NYFW- it looks like they finally heard us basic chics who aren’t a fan of wearing real pants. While I can always get behind leggings, I’m not sure you’ll see me wearing them under jeans. However, while I consider myself pretty basic (I’m always going to be a black leggings gal) I did enjoy seeing the velvet leggings, fun prints and zippers that NYFW had to offer.

With every trend that I am excited to incorporate there are even more that I will be running away from- like head to toe metallic, colorful fur and western trends. To each their own! What trend are you most excited about for fall?
