Now that fall has arrived, you are probably wondering what to wear. The weather is starting to cool off, which means out with the summer clothes and in with the fall ones. No more shorts and tee-shirts; now you’re going to have to wear warm pants and sweaters. If you have no idea what to wear this fall, then look no further. Here’s the scoop on the latest fall fashion trends.

On those nice, cool fall days, jeans are a staple garment in almost everyone’s wardrobe. A spooktacular item to rock this fall is…you guessed it, ripped jeans. You can buy them at basically any clothing store nowadays. If you don’t feel like spending a ton on the perfect pair of pants, hit up the thrift store. There’s some interesting finds in there. Jeans go with practically anything and everything, so you’ll never run out of outfit ideas to wear.

When the weather starts to look gloomy, trick or treat yo’ self to a nice flannel. Flannels can go with a lot of outfits, so you’re bound to have something that matches with it in your closet. Spice it up by pairing the top with ripped jeans and some cozy boots. Or dress it down with some cute leggings and sneakers. Layer on a warm vest over the flannel for a cozy but cute look. The possibilities are endless with this fashion trend.

This next trend has some people divided over if it’s a yay or nay. Fila Disruptors are not for everyone, but for some it is a must have shoe. Colors range from neon green, classic white and every color in between. If the original Filas are not tall enough for you, they made an even taller pair. The new Fila Disruptors 2 come with a 1.25 inch high heel, which is perfect if you’re aiming for that tall and proud look. While they might be expensive at $80, they are worth it if you’re looking for a unique look.

When you think of a highlighter, you probably think of school right? Well your thoughts on that might change after this new trend! Turns out you don’t only have to use highlighters, but you can look like one too! Stand out in the crowd with neon pinks, oranges, greens and yellows. Pop your bland and boring outfit with a pair of neon shoes or even a neon jacket. You’ll be spotted from a mile away with the bright hues and colors of your neon outfit.

Now you’re not supposed to wear hats in school, but who says you can’t wear a bucket! Combine both by wearing a bucket hat, the newest style of hats. Some common bucket hats are the ones from Ikea, but a lot of other retailers sell them too. Draw some fashion inspiration from your favorite celebrities because even the A-list celebs rock their bucket hats. While this is another trend that’s not loved by everyone, it’s still a unique trend this fall. You know what they say: hatters gonna hate. 

And if you don’t feel any of these trends are the perfect one for you, wear what you want. You can even combine all of them to have the ultimate fall fashion look! Remember, a sweatshirt and jeans can never wrong you.
