Easy to Wear Fall Trends

Prep Inspired

As a 53-year-old, the preppy look defined my 1980’s high school days. It’s back again this fall in a slightly more sophisticated manner. Luckily it’s a super easy trend to wear! Think polo collars, blazers, stripes, plaids, argyle, and headbands. Just not all at once!

Matched Sets

Another blast from the past! That’s right, ladies – matching sets are back! I find them easiest to wear as lounge sets (thankfully a far cry from those purple-fuschia-teal tracksuits of the 90’s) but have also found some lovely knit skirt and wide-leg trouser combos that are in the carousel below. All the cozy feels for the crisp fall weather!

I recently ordered this matched leopard set (linked below) and am in love with it! The pants are true to size. I could have gone down one from my regular size in the top but it’s workable, just slightly off the shoulder. Plan to wear it together as well as separates. The top looks great with denim and cream bottoms and the cropped pants coordinate well with cream, oatmeal, and camel cozy cardigans.

Geometric Prints

From dainty to bold, geographic prints are having a moment! Update your fall basics with a geo print top or a statement-making geometric print coat. Dresses make for another easy update and will pair well with the basic cardigans/blazers you already own. In addition to the pieces below, retail giant ZARA has quite a few unique and budget-friendly options!

What’s your take on fall trends? Will you be sporting any of these styles this season or is there another look that has caught your eye? For more fall inspiration, check out these posts!


Until next time…keep cultivating a simple, stylish and satisfying life!

  1. Hi Betsy. Though I do keep my style current I tend to prefer a more classic look in the way that I dress. I can’t get on board with the cropped style pants. Luckily I can find the best style for me at a store called Mavi, in Tbilisi. I didn’t think that I would like their high wasted, skinny jeans, but I tried them on anyway and they look great. I decided to get a pair in Dark-wash blue and black. I always enjoy your posts. Thanks for sharing.xx
