Fall 2017 Trend: Red

We’re so glad to find out that typical blacks and greys won’t be dominating this year’s fall wardrobes—at least not as far as the fashion-forward are concerned! Bold reds, from playful crimson to classy maroon, are a huge autumn hit. In this ensemble, check out how one of our shoppers paired her audacious, flaming top with a cat eye classic.

Fall 2017 Trend: 70s Plaid

While this is one trend we may end up regretting in future seasons, we’re enjoying it while it lasts! That’s right—plaid is back for fall. So how do you refresh it with your favorite summer items? In this look, WMP shopper Raysa utilizes two of the fall 2017 fashion trends in her red-infused plaid top. The mirrored cat eye shades truly rejuvenate this look!

Fall 2017 Trend: Retro Hats

The accessory that shielded us from the sun in July will protect us from the wind in October. In this look, shopper Nicole effortlessly takes us from summer-wild-child to autumn-boho with these funky geometric frames. A pair this ostentatious can be difficult to pull off, but Nicole is a natural! What would you pair these super unique shades with? Tell us below in the comments!

Fall 2017 Trend: Couch Florals

While the name of this trend may make it sound like a subject of mockery rather than flattery, chic designers like Vivienne Westwood, Ralph Lauren, and Emilia Wicksted have all fully embraced it for fall! Shopper Zaria Brown brilliantly paired this tropical top with a cat eye pair, allowing the look to perfectly transition from a bright summer smash to an unexpected autumn stand-out.
