1. Houndstooth & Red Influences

Houndstooth and red pieces work like magic together.

Products: Forever 21 Houndstooth Cropped Pants ($17.90), Forever 21 Trumpet-Sleeve Top ($25)

Two of the biggest trends for Fall 2018 were houndstooth print and bright red pieces. I love pairing these two styles together for a classy look that works for a day out in the city or at your internship.

The way I would piece this look together is to tuck the red top into the houndstooth pants and pair it with black booties for a sleek look. If you’re feeling a bit chilly, I suggest adding a leather jacket as a layer. If you want to make your outfit a little edgy you can add a cabby hat.

2. Animal Print & Western Influences

Camel-colored boots and animal print make for a stunning duo.

Products: Forever 21 Knee-High Stiletto Boots ($38), Forever 21 Leopard Print Satin Shirt Dress ($38)

Have you been looking for a perfect outfit for a date night? Animal print and western influences are a great place to start when looking for pieces.

I love this leopard print dress from Forever 21 because it’s casual but can be dressed up with the knee-high stiletto boots on the right. It’s the perfect simple outfit for a date night out with your significant other. If the weather is getting a little chilly, I suggest adding a pair of stockings to keep your legs warm and adding a jacket for extra warmth.

For accessories, I would keep this outfit simple with small silver pieces, such as a ring and hoop earrings.

3. Kitten Heels & Elevated Plaid

Kitten heels and elevated plaid are a must for fall.

Products: Forever 21 Tie-Waist Plaid Shirt Dress ($24.90), Forever 21 Faux Suede Kitten Heel Booties ($28)

My favorite trend for the fall is plaid print. With so many colors and pieces to choose from, I love that there are countless ways you can wear this trend.

For this fall, I suggest you pair a plaid dress with a simple pair of kitten heels. If you’re headed out for the evening, remember to add a pair of stockings to keep your legs warm or even opt for plaid pants. And if you want to experiment with bolder kitten heels, you can always try a studded kitten heel for an edgier look. You’ll look ready for warm apple cider and pumpkin picking in this outfit, for sure.
