I have included some affiliate links through Shopstyle Collective that allows me to receive a very little amount back if you decide to purchase an item, which is a lot of help so thank you if you decide to purchase
It’s the beginning of the best time of year… Colder weather is finally here in Nashville and I am so excited! I have way more clothes for the fall and winter season than summer (crazy, I know). I’ve noticed while online browsing that this seasons trends are pretty cohesive and all work together so well. I am going to be linking quite a few items that are affiliate links and if you happen to purchase them, I will receive a couple cents or so ;).
I love being able to browse from the comfort of my own home and be able to see what the latest trends for each season are. I’m also debating whether or not I am going to do a lookbook with outfits that have trending staples for this season. SO be on the lookout for that y’all! Trends come and go and honestly; I think most of these that are in this season are staples that can last for seasons to come.
For each trend, I’m gonna pick four items that coincide and link it for you all and each item can be found on my “Shop the Blog” tab at the very top of the page!FOUR TRENDS THAT ARE THRIVING THIS FALL
FOUR TRENDS THAT ARE THRIVING THIS FALL
- NEUTRALS AND KHAKI EVERYWHERE!
- ANIMAL PRINTS
- PLAID IS SO…IN
It’s so funny seeing these new trends when in reality I’ve had the majority of these in my wardrobe for the past two fall and winter seasons. Which is hilarious to me because trends pretty much cycle around. This season I’ve been seeing so many neutrals, animal prints and teddy bear jackets/ hoodies everywhere ( even at Walmart, in the US)! Below I’ll be elaborating on each trend and where you can find certain items with their respective links.
NEUTRALS ARE EVERYWHERE!
(Images above are from Forever21 and the last one is from Lulu’s)
I think that everyone needs to have neutrals in their closet and I have so many in my wardrobe because they are so versatile and you can switch up each outfit. Everywhere you look; you’ll find khakis, caramels, Cremes and browns which intermix with all the trends that are in right now.
Some of my favorite online stores make finding trending items so easy and I’ve ordered from each one of these with ease and two of them are UK based shops and shipping is fast and easy for US orders. I found a few of my faves from all over and will link them below for you all!

Y’all I absolutely LOVE animal print in every way possible. Now, if you aren’t a fan of a massive print you can definitely add little accessories such as a belt or most importantly– shoes. I have two pairs of Leopard Flats of different styles and am on the lookout for some booties because I love pairing them with jeans and a neutral sweater or cardigan during the fall season.
Cheetah print is probably my fave of all the animal prints, seeing as it is so easy to pair with other colors and even prints (plaid looks great with leopard, FYI!) It’s literally everywhere and plenty of booties were on sale during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Which I apologize for not writing on sales– genuinely this blog took the backseat to a lot of things in my life. Shame on me, I know!

I’ve linked two petite clothing items because I am super tiny and love the fact that I can find items that won’t need alterations.
Also, right now PrettyLittleThing has a 40% off sale and honestly I always suggest waiting till there is a sale to purchase anything.
Neutrals & Stripes Oh my!
Another awesome trend I absolutely love are stripe; in every width, color and in any type of clothing piece. I’m not one to conform to style “rules and no-nos” and wear stripes all the time even if people say that petite women should wear certain stripes to look elongated.
In my humble opinion I love stripes of all kinds lol and I don’t conform to any set rules when it comes to fashion; Nor should you!

These tops above are all so different and can be dressed up or down depending on the outfit. Which I absolutely love, I have a few sweaters like the ones above and they are the most versatile tops in my closet if I’m honest.
The link above are affiliate links, so I make a tiny percentage if you decide to buy using my links!
I also wanted to choose some bottoms that have caught my eye that are striped. I have culottes for the spring so it’s super fun to see this trend making its way into the winter season.
It’s so funny writing a post like this, because it only makes me wanna purchase more clothing ( which I don’t need haha)
I’m literally so tempted to buy the second pair of pants cause they are STUNNING. They may not be winter proof but I DON’T CARE lol. The other two bottoms are boot friendly and definitely can go with sweaters. I’m all for comfort and all three of these bottoms give me that feel.

PLAID IS DEFINTELY IN
Plaid is literally everywhere and honestly I’m so glad its here. I’ve been on the lookout for a pair of plaid trousers and I have yet to find a pair that calls out to me. If any of you happen to find a pair of bright red plaid pants, let me know on Instagram!
I love being able to have a pop of color and plaid gives you that extra level of umph. Any type of plaid is fun and I love how there is something for everyone’s personal style.

If you hadn’t noticed I have a few shopping sites that I go to, but genuinely that is because I’ve purchased from them before and have amazing quality clothing. I wouldn’t want to link items from stores I’ve never ordered from and it end up being dissapointing. So rest assured all of the stores listed are trustworthy and sooo worth it to order from.

I hope that you guys are able to get some inspiration from these four trends that I’ve noticed circulating in most online stores. I plan on having another posts that shows how I pair each of these trends on my petite frame. This post was so different for me to write and is incredibly time consuming so I hope some of you benefited from it and enjoyed it as much as I did when I was researching items. If anything, finding new stores to shop from is always fun :).
Until next time!
