Dots: Small dots, big dots, colored dots, black dots. Dots, dots, dots… If you’re not up for a full outfit of dots, just mix a dotty blouse or sweater with a pair of minimalistic jeans or a skirt. Or maybe…
Even dotted shoes! What do you think? (I know that was lame for E, but I couldn’t think of something better, sorry!)
Fringe: It’s time for you to buy a fringy cross-body bag, which I will explain with the capital “W.” So keep reading.
Girly: This fall, the headband makes its comeback. I’ve already bought a couple of them and my favorite of all time must be the Valentino gold-coined headband in black. I adore it!
High-waisted and wide-legged: The ’70s trend is back and I bet your inner voice is yelling oh nooo, but trust me, this fit actually makes us with normal body types look like we have longer legs and tighter bums. Warning: do not wear this trend if you’re sitting down for most of the day. I tell ya, it is not comfortable.

Iced-coffee: The trendy version of regular coffee (at least in the city). By now you can tell I need my caffeine to continue…
Jeans: Be it wide, high-waisted, low-waisted, cropped, boyfriend, shorts, ripped, you name it.
Krown-embellishments (I know it’s spelled with a “C,” but the “C” was already taken!): This season you will see embellished hoodies and knitted blouses, which gives the laid-back item a whole new dimension.
Lady in red: Wear red. It complements your summer tan and is just so beautiful.
Metallics: Silver shoes, glittering skirts, and hoodies that look as if they’re made of tin foil. Yep, the metallic trend has arrived.
No rules: Mix and match all the different styles for a more customized look. Whether it’s adding something funny to your classy outfit or something extravagant with a pair of sneakers, break up every rule as they didn’t exist.
Overalls: White long-legged overalls, yes please.

Pointed toes: This goes for boots, heels, slingbacks, and flats. Point those toes! I actually just bought these.
Quilt it: Quilted jackets are HOT!
Rucksack: This very practical bag is at its peak right now. Go for black leather or suede to give your outfit an edgy or more sophisticated look, respectively.
Stripes: On the runway for the pre-fall collections I spotted stripes — and lots of them! Try a striped blouse and a skirt with stripes in a different direction to create a fun, but classic look.
Stripes, stripes, everywhere!
Tradition: The Polo! Wear a classy polo with ripped jeans for a mix of styles.
Upcoming color: Purple. I never saw it coming, and I swore I would always hate this color, but it has made its entrance. Will I surrender?
Very turtle-like: Turtlenecks are still going strong. Wear them under a buttoned, sleeveless blazer for a very professional look.
Wild West: Karl Lagerfeld presented his Chanel pre-fall 2014 show in a rodeo hall in Dallas and it was all about the Wild West with fringed bags, ponchos, boots, and cowboy hats. You don’t have to go all in; just choose one item to spice up your outfit.
X-factor: Believe in yourself and bring out that inner X-factor. You will look so much better. Confidence is everything.
Yes to hats: British Vogue just shot a story with lots of layering and… A FELT HAT (see it here). I’m so excited. I bet it’ll be the new thing!
Zebra: Noooo, I’m kidding. Unfortunately, I have nothing to say for Z. Wait… Yes I do: Zee ya!
