Remaining current without becoming a fashion victim is a reasonable goal at any age. Today I am showing a few fall trends to jazz up the basics.
Faux leather pants or leggings are now considered classics. Fall is the perfect time to wear these options. Pairing long tops, sweaters, and jackets with slim-fitting pants and flat shoes or short chunky boots creates a flattering silhouette. It’s always important to get the proportions right. For a while, I felt that leggings were no longer an option for me, but if they are completely opaque, not too tight, and worn with very long tops, they can still be appropriate for casual attire.
Long cardigans are showing up in almost every fall story this year. This Clara Sunwoo soft sweater knit long sleeve cardigan is from My Fair Lady. The long black tank is by Clara Sunwoo. The faux leather leggings are also by Clara Sunwoo.
The key styling point is to play up the casual, comfortable aspect of leggings and always wear them with a very long top. Here I’ve paired them with gray slip-on reptile embossed platform sneakers by J SLIDES. Animal and reptile prints are stronger than ever this year.

The scarf and crossbody bag worn as a shoulder bag adds softness and color that flatters my face.
The styling tricks I used to make this look work for my shape include keeping the inside color one long column. The neckline falls about four inches below my collarbones. The scarf is folded on the bias and worn long and straight. A scarf tied around the neck with the knot to the side is very popular right now, but that is not a good look for my face shape. Customize the trends to suit you. I pushed up the sleeves and wore oversized sunglasses to add my personality to this look.
I’ll show you how I styled another fall trend on Friday.
