It is hard to believe that it is already that time of year – retailers are starting to transition into fall, and soon enough, you will be on the hunt for a few new trendy pieces to add to your closet. The good news is there are a lot of things to be excited about this coming season – fun and modern new shapes, loads of print, color, texture and lots of little details. Our regular contributor and fashion guru Allison Patrick from Denver clothing boutique Dragonfly gives us her top trend picks to be on the lookout for this fall:
- New Pop Colors
Brighten up any fall outfit with a jewel-toned fuchsia, teal or cobalt blue blouse, or try mixing more muted pop colors like hunter green, aubergine, burnt orange and mustard yellow into your regular rotation of neutrals.

Sparkle and shine this fall in a gorgeous, sequined top, jacket, dress or skirt. From black and gold to rose and wine-colored sequins, you will look right on trend pairing an easy, sparkly top with your favorite skinny jeans and leather booties.

- Faux Leather
From waxy-coated denim and leggings to faux leather jackets, vests and leather-trimmed tops, you will be seeing edgy faux leather details everywhere this fall. Try pairing a faux leather-trimmed blazer with a white t-shirt, your favorite denim and heels for a fun date night look.

- Faux Fur
Last year, we saw the start of the faux fur trend and it is still going strong this season. Avoid styles that are too bulky and opt for either faux fur accents or a slim-fitting faux fur vest to wear with your favorite denim.

This feminine detail is popping up on skirts, tops and dresses this season. I love the versatility of a great black pencil skirt with a peplum twist – easily dressed up or down and perfect for the office.

- High-Low Hems
The high-low hem is a modern twist that instantly transforms any classic silhouette. Pair a high-low dress shirt with a slim black pant and metallic accessories for an easy day-to-night look.
