If you haven’t caught on already, we really love fall around here. Just like any fashion-obsessed women, we know that fall is one of the most exciting times when it comes to all things fashionable. There are more accessories to style, new makeup trends to try, fresh color palettes to experiment with, and of course, leggings and boots are never a bad thing in our books. And so, if you’re on the same page as us, today we wanted to discuss fall fashion as it relates to a fall themed party. And no, we don’t mean a Halloween costume party. Instead we’re talking about Thanksgiving, hayrides, and basically any gathering you attend that has that cozy fall theme to it.
Yup, if there’s apple cider on the table, you’re at a fall themed party.

Every fall season, new trends take shape. This year for 2017 we’ve got bold red, fishnets, distressed denim, crushed velvet, and ruffled turtlenecks. Pick a fall fashion trend that speaks to you and wear it to your next party. You’ll look right on trend for the season, fitting in perfectly, while still making a statement with your excellent style.
3. Wear traditional fall colors
Even though red might be the most popular fall color this year, there are certain color palettes that just always work for the fall season, no matter what. Think anything that is deep and rich with a warm undertone, like cranberry, rust, plum, and gold. Do away with anything bright or neon next time you’re dressing for a fall themed party, and instead embrace the colors of the leaves. Not sure what traditional fall colors are? This little color palette shown below should help.

Unless it’s one of those particularly hot fall days, there really is no excuse for any other shoe style. Whether it’s ankle boots, over the knee boots, or just a standard pair of riding boots, once you add a pair of boots to any outfit, it automatically becomes chicer, put together, and perfectly fall appropriate.
