There are SO many fun trends happening this fall/winter, it's easy to get overwhelmed by them all. Here, I'm going to give you easy and attainable ways to style some of this seasons trendiest fashions!

Disclaimer: I'm hoping to provide inspiration for you to take away and use in your own closets. If any item is still available, I will be sure to link it. Although, some pieces are older and some are already sold out from this season. Sorry in advance!

Plaid blazers and fun spins on heritage inspired looks will be everywhere this year. I loved pairing this oversized blazer with Western inspired boots. I kept it super comfortable underneath with simple leggings and a black tank.

The blazer is H&M (sold out) and the tank is Zara (sold out) but keep an eye out for restocks!

Platform-style Chelsea boots and Lug boots are already all over the place. I really like styling them with trousers, mom jeans, and joggers. Basically, anything that is tapered at the ankle!

Everything else about this outfit is old and unavailable. Sorry about that!

Elevated Athleisure wear. I am SO thrilled to enjoy athleisure wear for yet another season. This year, it's all about making the look a little more polished. Elevate the comfortable style with a graphic sweatshirt and oversized blazer.

The blazer and sweatshirt are both H&M and are both sold out.

Slit Hemmed Leggings. You'll be seeing the slit on both the front and the side. Pair this style pants with sneakers, ankle boots, or lug-style boots. I feel like if you work in a business casual environment, you could totally get away with this look. It's like business on the top and a party on the bottom! *wink!*

Front slit leggings (Black is sold out, but they are still available in beige): https://rstyle.me/+uxkvmH3nr_hJNMNkQbcuFQ

My top is old and unavailable. The blazer is H&M and is sold out.

Western style boots. This is a trend that has really grown on me. And while it's safe to say this is a trend that will likely be fleeting - it is also a trend that will inevitable circle back around and be "in" again one day. I'm definitely hanging on to these boots for as long as I can! I paired them with an oversized sweater dress for an easy and cozy fall look. I feel like the stark contrast between the white and black makes it look chic!

My sweater dress is from H&M and is currently sold out. They restock it every year, so keep an eye out online!

Leather Pants are another trend that will definitely stick around for a while and once they're considered "out" will inevitably circle back into style in the future. I personally love them all the time. These feature a zipper on the inside of the hem, so you can choose to wear them boot cut (as shown here) or unzipped to play into the slit hem trend. I especially love that because if the slit hem goes out of style, these leather pants will remain timeless. They're also lined and SOOOO warm! These are actually still available so get them before they're gone!
