Must-Have Monday: 6 Fall 2014 Trends

In case you didn’t know, we love fall. And one of the best things about the new season? New fashion.

With New York Fashion Week in full swing, designers are already previewing their collections for Spring/Summer 2015. We can’t think that far ahead (um, summer just ended!) so here are six top trends for fall:

1. Dark Florals

Yes, you CAN wear florals in fall–the summer staple gets a seasonal update against dark backgrounds. Try a black rose-print dress with a cardigan for a work-ready outfit, and add tights when the temps dip.

2. Black and White

Classics in mod, 1960s-style prints like houndstooth and polka dots.

Cozy sweaters are what we live for in fall, paired with anything from pencil skirts and heels to skinny jeans and tall boots.

6. Gunmetal Gray Nails

Deep shades of gray go with everything and are less harsh than black. And Buzzfeed says gray is the best nail color, period.

Don't tell her that print is dying--she's already made the switch to public relations. As a Midwest girl, winter happens approximately 80% of the year, so she knows a thing or two about a good pair of snow boots. She lives for summer weather (even though she can never tan), Boy Meets World reruns, and an unhealthy addiction to dark chocolate and online shopping. She's a die-hard Chicago sports fan, even though she's well aware the Cubs always end up in last place every year.
