The end of summer is nearing and it was about time you retired your swimsuits and kaftans. Don’t worry, though, fall outfits are just as impressive and inspiring as the summer ones, because they give you the chance to play with layers, colors and styles. This season will be no less interesting than the fall of 2016, bringing with it a spectrum of colors, Americana vibes and vintage-inspired pieces when it comes to fashion, and pixie haircuts, natural makeup and architectural eyeliners when it comes to beauty. So, if you want to learn more about what to expect, keep reading.

Geek-chic on the rise

A trend inspired by school uniforms and the geek style has sneaked up on us, and we almost missed it. Luckily, major stars like Rihanna and Kendall Jenner made sure we notice this whimsical trend by repeatedly sporting it on important events. We are, of course, talking about ankle socks combined with sandals, ballet flats or high heels. This seemingly small and irrelevant accessory can make any outfit more playful and youthful, and it is perfect for fall.

Athleisure still going strong

The only way you could have missed the athleisure trend is if you’ve been hibernating for the past couple of years. If that is the case, now is the ideal time to try it out since it isn’t going anywhere. Following the athleisure trend doesn’t mean dressing like it is your lazy Sunday, though. With many designers being involved in elevating this trend, the tracksuit finally feels like you’re combining a pair of jeans and a T-shirt.

Cross my bag

Cross-body bags are one of the most prominent accessory trends this season. They symbolize relaxed and careless catwalking, and they are also very practical. However, that doesn’t mean this style has to be casual. There are plenty of over-the-shoulder luxury bags that can complement any fancy outfit. There are also vagabond-style bags with knick-knacks hanging down, or modern color-blocked purses. Your options are limitless.

In the last couple of years, we have seen the rise of many ethnic prints, ranging from Native American to African. This season is all about Russian-dolls-inspired embroidery, which usually includes flowers in different colors and sizes. Wearing this trend will draw all eyes on you and make you feel confident and cheerful, even on a rainy fall day.

This fall brings back the metallic shades while it pushes aside matte eyeshadows. Gold is the most popular color to have on your eyelids, but you can also turn to copper or silver. Regardless of your choice of color, you shouldn’t go overboard with the rest of the makeup, and you should aim for the nearly bare-faced look. Also, if you are confident enough, you can try out the gold lip trend.

Wrap it up

There are plenty of hairstyle innovations for this year, and while some of them seem downright silly, some others are a thoughtful nod to classic hairstyles. One of the latter ones is the black ribbon or bow. This trend can be worn in many different ways: a low ponytail and a subtle silk ribbon, a giant velvet statement bow, a chignon and a large stiff bow, a skinny ribbon without a bow, etc.

Effortlessly Gorgeous

This look is one of the most popular and enduring beauty trends. It includes doing your makeup and hair in a way that seems as if you haven’t tried at all, but you will still look fantastic. This includes the casual “the-devil-may-care” braids or waves and minimal makeup.

Now that you know how to look and feel good when the fall arrives, you are surely not regretting the summer’s finale. In fact, you must be looking forward to the season of fallen leaves, dozens of shades of gold and rainy days.
