The cool Ohio breeze is begging for sweaters, and I have consumed one too many pumpkin spice lattes. That can only mean one thing: fall is in full swing. With the cool breeze comes the smell of leaves and new fashion trends for us all to critique. Join me as I predict whether or not these 5 trends will make it out of fall and survive through the winter.

Denim Maxi skirts

There’s been a maxi skirt uprising. In theory, the denim maxi skirt is cute, casual and can be styled easily. However, denim maxi skirts are NOT comfortable or practical. My guess is the denim maxi skirt trend will stay hot among celebrities this fall but it may not make it out of winter.

The cow girl boot trend has been controversial. But, I think these western boots are here to stay for the long haul. They have become a versatile staple for many people, adding a fun twist to any outfit.

Oversized blazers

Oversized blazers/suit jackets make for the perfect fall layering staple. They can be dressed down or up. However you chose to style, I’m a fan. I think these oversized blazers are going to make it through winter.

Leather pants

While I love leather jackets, skirts, boots and bags, I do not personally like leather pants. I have seen so many people perfectly style a pair of leather pants and make them look incredible, but they are not for me. On the other-hand, I can see leather pants sticking around.

Quilted bomber jackets

I love bomber jackets. They are warm, casual, and make for perfect layering. When the jackets are quilted, it makes them even cooler. I definitely approve of this trend, but I don’t think its life span is long.

These are just 5 of my opinions on current trends. Style is subjective. The way you view trends depends on your personal taste. So, wear what you want and do it with confidence.
