Fashion Is My Creative Outlet—These 6 Easy Fall Trends Just Speak to Me

Renia Jaz is consistently one of my go-to sources of sartorial inspiration. The creative's feed, @venswifestyle, is filled with a range of forward outfit ideas. As she explained to me, fashion is her outlet, and she adores sharing her style journey with her followers. "I love fashion, as it allows me to show who I am and in what mood I may be," she said. "It's the best way to express myself. I pay a lot of attention to accessories—I love unique shoes, bags, and jewelry. And I believe that fashion is for everyone regardless of our age." For reference, Jaz is in her 50s and is always down to test out fresh trends.

On that note, I thought there could be interest in learning about the fall trends that speak to Jaz. It's these versatile and easy-to-style trends that you'll probably see crop up on her page styled in many different ways. In fact, some are already go-tos in her offering.

1. Big Knits

"Chunky, oversize knits, comfy dresses, and knitted sets are not going anywhere! We associate knits with comfort, and during last year, we all found ourselves wearing a lot of knitted sets and dresses. Wool and cashmere are the tactile textiles that all of the designers go for this season."

"I love oversize jeans, so this trend makes me really excited. Don't be afraid to wear denim on denim, especially dark indigo. (It's the denim color of this season.)"

"Happy colors and patterns are visible throughout the F/W 21 collections, as designers envisioned that this fall/winter will be all about happiness and joy."

"This fall and winter will be all about wearing tailored on tailored. Designers aren't going halfway—button-downs are layered under vests, over turtlenecks, under jackets, under long coats, over trousers. It's all about tailored layers. Elegant and chic, never boring. However, don't forget to add some color and unique shoes just like Prada did."

"Let's focus on big bags! The bigger, the better! Finally, we don't need to be worried about whether we can fit everything in our bags."

"Let's face it: We all love puffers! They are warm, comfy, and so easy to style. This season, they are also high-fashion. Go for bold, fun colors or a cropped one."
