It’s Flirty Fall, my friends!
Summer is coming to an end, but that doesn’t mean hot girl summer is over. Instead, we are transitioning to what I call Flirty Fall, a new season where we head back to school, make new first impressions, find new school crushes, and maybe even fall (see what I did there?) for some of them! This season is all about standing out, saturated colors, and styling suits. You can expect to see some skin, bold patterns, and shiny details. Flirty Fall is the season of new beginnings with experimentation of style, print, and texture.
Usually, with fall comes the transition out of your bright summer colors into your darker ones. This Flirty Fall, everything is changing. Chanel’s, Prada’s, Miu Miu’s, and Salvatore Ferragamo’s shows are all filled with deep colors. Colors like scarlet red, fuchsia, bright green, cobalt, and tangerine are all over your wardrobe this season. Bold colors are becoming your new standard black. Think deeply saturated colors, jewel tones, rich mustard yellows, and other strong, vibrant colors. Wear this trend by pairing a saturated hue with an all-black look for a pop, or be bold and pair unexpected colors together. (Try wearing tangerine and cobalt blue or fuchsia and a deep purple!)
Blazer are back (YAY! I love a good blazer). This fall, everything is about tailored on tailored fashion. Bold? Oversized? Printed? Neutral? Shoulder padded? We are seeing it ALL this season. Incorporate a blazer into your Flirty Fall wardrobe to embody the boss inside you! This is the season of new beginnings, so channel your inner Devil Wears Prada, Miranda Priestly, and be the boss of your life! This season we are not taking sh!t from anyone! Wear them going out on the town, to the office, or even dress them down with some sneakers for an easy on-the-go look! Whatever the case, a blazer is a go-to and should be a staple in your closet.
After over a year in the pandemic, fall is all about being optimistic, showing a glimmer of hope. This season, sequins and sparkles are astonishingly in! Flirty Fall is all about being the star of your own life, so wearing something that shines is only slightly mandatory 😉 ! Sequins, sparkles, and shiny ensembles are seen all over fall and winter 2021-2022 runways. Designers like Georgio Armani, Isabel Marant, and Valentino are just a few among the many who incorporate these glowing details. Integrate shine into your wardrobe by finding a statement piece that radiates and pair it with neutral clothing to let it be the star. This trend isn’t about over-the-top glamour but is instead a mood (I am a cool girl who is ready to shine).
Midriffs and Midis
It’s all about the midriff and midi this autumn. Mid drifts are seen all over the runways, along with mid-length skirts and dresses. It is time to embrace this weird in-between of coming out of the pandemic but still being in it (if that even makes any sense?). The runway shows of Chanel, Jacquemus, Christian Dior, and more are filled with this trend. Bare your midriff or opt for a midi skirt or dress if showing some skin isn’t your thing!
With these four fashion trends for fall 2021, you really can’t go wrong! Keep an eye out for bright hues, elements of sparkles, blazer takeovers, and glimpses of midriffs. This season is all about embracing the warmth and light at the end of this pandemic tunnel.
