Thank you to everyone who gave me their ideas of what you wanted to hear about on Facebook. I appreciate all of your ideas! This is the start of my series for styling trends. I am going to be giving you all the color and style trends for Fall for the everyday girl along with a free printable closet checklist to help you incorporate these trends into your closet. I have also included some of my personal shopping tips!
Have you ever wondered what determines the Seasons trends in colors? They are actually chosen two years before the styles hit the runway. Pantone determines the color trends for each season (this includes home decor and fashion). Pantone is actually is the standard language that is used between designer to the manufacturer. Here is the list of Fall 2015 Colors Trends: Dried Herb, Desert Sage, Stormy Weather, Oak Buff, Marsala, Biscay Bay, Reflecting Pond, Cadmium Orange. Cashmere Rose, and Amethyst Orchid.

This is the fun part, taking all the colors that are trending this season and implementing them in your closet. I wish I could go out and buy a whole new wardrobe each season but let’s be honest, there is about 3% of the population who can afford to do this.
First, go through your closet and take inventory on color trends. You want to make sure you have small amounts of these colors (that you love) in your closet. Make a physical list or screen shot on your phone, the colors that you want to shop for. (PS I made this easy for you, print out the closet checklist for a list of colors and examples) I seriously screenshot everything! I have a photo album of my clothing shopping list. This is where I have all the items I am craving, colors I want to include in my closet, and outfit ideas I have come across (Pinterest, fellow bloggers, and Instagram).
Next, go through your closet and take inventory on style trends. Take note on the style trends you would love to incorporate into your wardrobe. As you go through your closet, keep an open mind. You may have a pair of jeans that are a bootcut rather than a wide leg, but they will keep you on-trend without having to buy a second pair of jeans. Make a list of the styles you don’t have in your wardrobe that you are looking to incorporate. Again, screenshot examples! You will thank me later.
Lastly, create outfits. The biggest mistake I have made is buying on trend items and throw them into the rest of my closet without creating outfits for them. If I have an outfit picked out before I slip it in my closet I will be reminded to wear these pieces. I will take pictures of the outfits laid out on my bed and include them in their own photo album labeled outfit ideas. I sometimes don’t need these to look on to pick out my outfit, but there are days that I am SO thankful I have them for inspiration.
I will be posting my favorite trends that I have personally incorporated into my style! Be on the lookout.
