Fall 2019 Trend Preview: Pieces You Can Shop Now!

When the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale catalog hit my mailbox, there was one thing I was more than a little excited about – fall 2019 trends! The catalog was chock full of them and has me itching for cooler temps and diving into creating the Fall 2019 Style Challenges® Capsule Wardrobe!

Confession: I don’t typically shop the sale all that much, but you already know that if you checked out this post. There are a few things that are absolutely worth getting during the sale – closet staples (which I covered here) and the next season’s trends. Since the sale always comes in the middle of summer, it’s the perfect opportunity to highlight what’s coming up and get a head start on picking up some fall pieces at a steal.

Without further ado, here’s your 2019 fall trend preview.

Fall 2019 Trend Preview

1. Snake Print

If you’ve been slow to warm up to this trend, fall is going to give you another really good opportunity to try it out. Honestly I think snake pattern is even richer for fall. You’re going to see it on everything from handbags and shoes to accessories, skirts, pants and tops. Try a little or try a lot!

Snake print booties pair perfectly with jeans, skirts and dresses. Wear them with black skinny jeans and a bright blouse for a casual night out.

2. High Boots

I’m kind of giddy over this news – high boots are back BIG TIME for fall! Yes it’s been all about the ankle boots and booties the past few years but the always classic, always chic high (or tall) boot is back in rich shades of suede and leather. They pair perfectly with skirts, dresses and skinny jeans.

3. Bright Colors

Fall 2019 is all about the brights! After a few years of muted shades, I for one couldn’t be happier. There are so many gorgeous saturated colors on trend but especially yellow, teal, red, green, orange, fuchsia, bright pink and royal blue.

4. Classics

How can classics be trends? They really can’t but they are worth mentioning. Fall is typically the season where we see a major shift back to tried-and-true wardrobe staples, impeccable tailoring and warm browns.

5. Fall Floral

A perennial favorite – fall florals in rich shades of teal, burgundy and blue are always a good idea. Not to mention they pair perfectly with other patterns! You can expect to see pattern mixes of florals with plaid, snake print, leopard and more.
