Many designers would like to think they are reinventing the wheel or creating the next revolutionary idea, but more times than not a trend has been around before. Trends change between each season, and throughout the decades brands have pulled inspiration from the past fashion icons. Instead of browsing shops right away after doing some style research, start with taking a peek at your mom’s closet. F/W ‘18 has quite a few trends that are sure to be found packed away in the attic or available at a local thrift store. Here are some of the best pieces to look for to keep your wallet full and your fall wardrobe on point.
Whether its fitted our slouchy, cardigans with the influence from the 1960s are so in style this year. The classic piece is perfect to throw over a short sleeve top or printed dress.
Pulling out some old sweaters from your mom’s college years may be a great way to keep the memories alive and well. Whether it’s chevron, striped, or ribbed any oversized sweater will keep you comfy on the go paired with jeans and chunky boots.
From brands like Coach to Dana Buchman, many mothers seem to be drawn to these timeless logo bags. Fendi is bringing it back into a more fashion forward sense with the brand’s all-over-print bags. Many monogram bags go with any outfit which makes life oh so much easier during this busy season.
Remember that family road trip years ago and stopped in those tourist trap towns? Well the majority of us have all experienced our moms buying random knick knacks, leather studded belts, and maybe some cowboy boots. Now is the time to dust off those boots and embrace the western trend this fall. Accessorize a simple maxi dress with a great studded belt or throw on those boots with black skinny jeans.
Oversized vintage coats are all the rave especially with the colder weather blowing in. Stay bundled up with that old Vera Bradley quilted coat. Paisley, animal, and plaid prints are well on trend and most likely can be found for an affordable price at any Goodwill or thrift store.
