Five Must-Have Trends For Fall

hi, friend!Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today! I'm excited to be sharing five trends for Fall that you should be looking out for. Most of these are probably already EVERYWHERE you look so might be like "Yes, Laura, we get it, girl.' But you never know! One of the trends might surprise you and since I'm always on the lookout for ways to keep my squad on the up and up of the fashion world, here we are.Let's start with plaid! It can be worn SO many different ways and seen in a ton of different styles. I love a buffalo plaid but I also have been swooning over navy plaid. This top I wore layered under an open front sleeveless cardi but it can also be worn all by itself. I love the gathered detail around the neckline and the wrist. Just a little something to make it more special. If you see a style of plaid and you love it, snag it. You can't overdo the plaid situation this fall.[showshopthepostwidget id="2850223"]   Hats! Y'all. If I had a dollar for every time someone said "I love hats but I can't pull them off", I'd be a rich woman. You wanna know who can pull off a hat? Anyone with a head. Maybe you aren't a floppy hat girl but with the right outfit, the baker boy hat is spot ON. This hat I styled with this plaid top is super affordable and a perfect neutral color so it can be worn with all the things.[showshopthepostwidget id="2850218"]   Velvet. You can take one quick glance at my instagram feed and know exactly how I feel about velvet. I. Love. It. Maybe you don't want to wear a velvet bomber, but the velvet booties might be worth a shot. I also love the subtle feel of a tank or a skirt in velvet. Just take the plunge and add at least one velvet item to your closet and see how you feel about it. I promise it'll just make you feel FANCY every time you wear it.[showshopthepostwidget id="2850231"]   Suede (or faux suede for the budget conscious among us) has my heart, y'all. Not only do I love the look of it, but it's so so so soft. Typically you'll find most suede has a bit of a stretch to it (please pas the tacos!) but it also has kind of a smoothing effect. It's a win/win folks.[showshopthepostwidget id="2850239"]   We will finish up with a trend for fall that's been pretty subtle in its introduction. The wide leg OR flare pant is back in action and I love it. These jeans are really affordable and not so flared out that you'll feel like you should be singing the theme to Saturday Night Fever. Wide leg culottes are also super in! They look great styled with sock booties or pointy toe heels. In most flare pant situations, you just want to make sure you wear them with a heel so as to elongate the leg and not cut it off abruptly at the heel.[showshopthepostwidget id="2850240"]   Ok, I wanna hear from y'all!
