Whether it’s luxurious leather, long jumpsuits, wavy ponytails or multicolored nails, the trends of the season have something for everyone. In this article you’ll find a rundown of the best styles to try this fall.
If you're ready for a new beginning in your beauty routine, now is the perfect time to create a fresh look. Get yourself primed for autumn and cooler weather with inspiration from the season's cutting-edge runway trends. From sleek animal prints to daring accessories, here are five fashion-forward – and versatile – looks to update your fall wardrobe and beauty routine.
Rock a reptile print
Animal prints can be intimidating, but this season’s snake-inspired patterns have never been classier or more wearable. Look for scales splashed across sheer blouses and silk pieces. Pair reptile prints with a solid pant or skirt for a conservative look that’s both on trend and appropriate for work.
Another way to sport this trend is through accessories: clutches, scarves and belts can emulate the reptile look without appearing overdone. When combined with a pin straight ponytail as seen on the models all over fashion week, you’ll achieve an ultra chic look. To create the perfect pony, simply blow-dry your hair and flat iron. Then, spray your hairbrush with hairspray before brushing your locks into a tight ponytail. Finish it off by smoothing back fly-aways, and spray on a bit more hairspray to set the look.

Try on the military trend
The military look will be in full force this fall; look for service-inspired capes, army greens and cargo pants. Since the military look is more on the masculine side, balance it out with a bit of femininity. Combine a tough cropped military jacket with an off-white lace blouse, or pair a long military dress with bright pumps. A multi-colored manicure adds an element of fun to an otherwise serious look. Simply paint four of your nails a single neutral shade, and then apply a different neutral color to the ring finger.

Embrace black on black
People who prefer the safe shade of black are in luck: midnight hues were all over the fall fashion runways. Stay warm with thick fabrics like wools, leathers, mixed textiles and everything in between. Stick with straight lines and simple pieces. Slip on a fitted black turtleneck, tight leather pants and black flat boots. Or, pair a long black leather jacket with a black pencil skirt and black sequined tee. Complete one of these looks with smoky green eyes and sheer lip color.

Slip into a jumpsuit
Jumpsuits are a bit on the edgier side, but don’t be intimidated by these fashionable frocks. A one-stop shop outfit, you’ll find fall jumpsuits that are long, bright and patterned. To ease into this trend, wear a cropped jacket over the top to make it feel more like an everyday outfit. Look for billowy silk fabrics that are feminine, loose and comfy. Pair your jumpsuit with tall boots or play it up with a pair of colorful pumps. Finish off this look with a trendy red lip color and a clear, fresh face.

Opt for off white everything
Like the all black look, all white everything is also in style – and ideal for the fashion minimalists. All-over white is a little trickier to wear than all black, but the secret is to keep it simple. For an easy outfit, pair an off-white long, sheer sweater with a pair of white tailored skinny pants. This trend works well with the big, glamorous waves seen bouncing around fall fashion week. To achieve this look, curl your locks with a big-barreled curling iron and set with a dusting of loose hold hairspray.
