Believe it or not, Fall is just around the corner. This means one thing and one thing only. No, I’m not thinking pumpkin spiced lattes. To me, the changing leaves and cooler air means stylish and cozy Fall fashion!

It’s not too early to start stocking up on cooler weather wear. Early Autumn is the best time for a transitional style where you can pair some of your favorite summer pieces with some must-have Fall trends. I’ve rounded up some of my favorite outfits from Annapolis Towne Centre to get you jazzed up about the latest and greatest. The hot spot this season is everything in between eye-catching textures and warm fall hues.

One of my absolute favorite trend for Fall is statement bottoms. From leggings to wide-leg culottes, its time to bring the hem down below the knee. My top three pants to look for are faux leather leggings, textured pants and, statement trousers.

Switch your pant game up this season and bring on a blast from the past. That’s right ladies, bell bottoms are back! As a That Seventies Show fan, I hope this trend is here to stay. Pair your flares with some booties, platform sandals or chunky heels. The goal is to elongate the leg to really make the pants pop as the center of attention. I found flares in all textures and colors. Try a classic denim pair or be bold with some leather-like the pair I found at South Moon Under.

Fall Styles

Other fun pant finds included statement pants from Anthropologie. These truly unique pieces like the patchwork pattern culottes and blush pink corduroy flare are to die for. Loud pants like these look best with a solid top or sweater. Don’t be afraid to layer your look.

When we think Fall Fashion the first thing that comes to mind is “sweater weather”. How snuggly does that sound? I discovered countless unique sweaters from chunky knitted to oversized and slouchy like this animal print from Scout and Molly’s. You’re going to want to stock up on a variety of sweaters for the months to come.

Fall Styles

Let’s talk patterns. Animal Print is a neutral in my eyes. The best thing about snakeskin and leopard is that it virtually goes with everything. Think this isn’t a trend you can pull off? Try adding a pop of these prints to your style with a clutch from Lou Lou.

Florals are not just a spring fling. I highly recommend including some botanicals to your wardrobe with fall colors like gold, copper and forest green. Scout and Molly’s carries a ton of flowy floral pieces than can be paired with a light jacket.

Suede, leather, and corduroy are in this season. One of my favorite pieces I found was this suede jumpsuit from Anthropologie. Talk about a 1970’s dream! You’ll find these textures sprinkled around the Towne Centre shops. Try a practical leather moto jacket or suede shawl for those cooler autumn nights.

Fall styles

Top off any outfit with some extra bold accessories this season. Heat up your look with a chunky headband, a baker boy hat or felt wide brim from Anthro. Layer on some jewelry and statement earrings this season. Stop into Lou Lou to find countless accessories and wearables to add to your collection.

My absolute favorite thing about fall fashion is that you get to be creative. It’s time to get your wardrobe cool weather ready with all the coziest trends. Trust me, you’re going to want to run (with that pumpkin latte in your hand) to the Towne Centre for all the latest Fall apparel.
