I confess. I am a summer bunny! I love the warmth of the sun, exposing my manicured toes, and showing off my shea butter battered skin. But the fashionista in my loves fall. Why? Because fall is the best time of year to flex. Turn a boring one-piece or wrap dress into a stunna with the right beret or shawl. Hoodies, fitted jeans, paired with a fresh pair of Timbs is my go-to outfit for running errands when the temperature begins to drop. Soon it will be time to put away all of my linen and pull out my suede jackets to protect me from the crisp air and line my closet with collar shirts I layer under cashmere sweaters.
With fall approaching, I pulled together this wardrobe-ready list of 7 trends predicted to be major for the upcoming season to shop from Black-Owned brands.
Shimmer and shine all fall in metallic threads from high-end fashion houses like Orange Culture Nigeria and KIING DAVIIDS or shop ready-to-wear styles from Bangolz and Jibri.
Preppy on Parade
Oxford cloth shirts, argyle and crewneck sweaters, woven leather belts, chinos, button-downs, loafers, and polo shirts are a classic aesthetic that will never go out of style and perfect for fall.
Embrace this fashion trend, with a combination of different prints or fabrics, for a vintage feel that can be daring or subtle.
Covered in Capes
Fall 2020 is calling for capes not coats. Solid or embellished, oversized or cropped, the cape has been chosen as this season's outerwear choice.
