Fun Fall fashion Trends

A little while ago I talked about 4 fun fall fashion trends that I am looking forward to this season, each complete with an outfit I put together from Polyvore. Every piece was under $50 and each outfit was under $170! You could even enter to win a $100 JCPenney Gift Card in that post, so I’ll wait a second while you go check it out…. …..

Aren’t they all so cute? You can even shop the whole post! So today I thought I’d share a few looks that I’ve put together with some of my JCPenney pieces and a few other fall trends to be on the lookout for.

Fall Fashion Trends with JCP

Now, I want to be pretty clear about something. I absolutely do not think that you have to go out there and buy all of these trends to be cute, stylish and fashionable. Not one bit. Reading fashion/beauty blogs can be hard because everywhere you look someone else is telling you something else you neeeed to buy.

That’s exactly why I love working with JCPenney. They have made it very clear from the beginning how they are out to win for everyone. Yes, they are a retailer and they’re looking to make money. Of course. However, they also have the best interest of the customer in mind, as we heard over and over again when we were in Texas for the immersion event.

They talk about being able to add pieces to your wardrobe when you can that will 1.) work well with what you have already 2.) continue to work through seasons and 3.) not cost you an arm and a leg. Now that I’m off my little soapbox, let’s talk about fall fashion trends that are kind fun right now!


Fun fall fashion trends

I mentioned this in my last post as well with an outfit I put together via Polyvore. The jumpsuit is in! I personally love this trend as you can see. It’s easy, so for all you moms out there that don’t know what to wear, it’s already put together for you! For this outfit, I threw on my Stitch Fix blazer and some heels and I was ready to go. This jumpsuit went straight from summer (it has spaghetti straps) to fall by just adding the blazer. See how that works? Love it.

Summer Dress into Fall

fall fashion trends - summer dress to fall

So summer is pretty much over and now we have to change everything we wear, right? No! We might need to add a few layers, but we can still work with what we’ve got. I bought this dress at JCPenney right before BlogHer ’14 this year and I actually wore it when I was speaking. I wore it as a slip dress with no belt and some sandals. Here, I added some knee high boots, a belt, and a long sweater and we’re ready. You can also add tights if it’s really cold. And there you have it, another dress that doesn’t have to sit in your closet all winter begging to be worn. Just wear it!

Jumpsuit x2 & Color!

fall fashion trend - jumpsuit style

I realize that I already said jumpsuit, but I bought this at JCPenney a little bit ago and haven’t had a chance to wear it. In fall, we tend to go for browns, grays, and neutral colors which are all very pretty. However, I don’t think there is anything wrong with bringing a little color into fall with you! I mean, we might need a little pick-me-up from the gloomy weather! This fire engine red jumpsuit does the trick. Paired with some sexy heels and you’re ready for date night!

Soft Pant

I almost forgot to include these – yikes! How could I? This is probably my favorite trend because, well, it’s like sweats but acceptable! I talked the other day about making comfort and style go together because for me, it’s a must. That’s what these babies do. You can wear them casual with flippies and a tank, or more dressed up like I have here. I really can’t describe how awesome they are, if you are looking to transition out of your yoga pants, may I kindly suggest that these would make that transition rather smoooooooth.

Now, like I mentioned before, just because these are “trends” does not mean that you have to sport them. If one doesn’t resonate with you or just wouldn’t fit your body type, don’t wear it! We all have tried to don trends that just… well… they just didn’t work! JCPenney totally feels ya!

They’ve got their own designers at NYFW watching for all the upcoming trends and updating us on all their favorites. And to do you one better — this is where it really gets fun — JCPenney wants you to post a #TBT type of post of you wearing a trend that just didn’t work using the hashtag #JCPTrendSwap. They’ll be having their designerspick 1participant each week chosen for a $500 JCPenney Gift Card, so you’ll want to get your pictures up!

I cannot wait to see all these pictures. I’m trying to think what I’ll post… I know I have some serious fashion faux pas in my past. What can I say? I grew up with all boys!

Today one reader will have a chance to win $100 JCPenney Gift Card on this post! We really want everyone to have a chance to win! Just answer this question -

What trend did you try that you look back at and think “oh my gosh – what was I thinking!!”?
