Hey, everyone! Nicole here. If you haven’t already noticed, despite the current temperatures, here at the HQ we’re experiencing somewhat of a fall fever—with all eyes, ears, and wallets pointed to the season ahead. And, while there are countless trends and outfit ideas I look forward to wearing (and buying) in the coming months, there are also, inevitably, those I’m not too excited about.

Of course, you may not all be on the same page as me, I’ve come to learn over the years that a lot of you (our dear readers) indeed share my sense of style, so I thought why not divulge? Read about the fall trends I’ll be ignoring, and to shop the ones I’ll be paying attention to instead, simply continue on below.

Skipping: Head-to-Toe Leather
Wearing: Mock Croc and Patent Pieces

At 5’2”, I’m fairly certain the Matrix-inspired, head-to-toe leather look simply isn’t for me, but I will definitely be adding some patent and mock-croc pieces to my wardrobe stat.

Skipping: Neon
Wearing: Animal Print

While I don’t particularly hate the look of a pop of neon here and there, from an investment standpoint, I don’t imagine it holding up in my wardrobe and would rather spend on timeless animal prints.

Skipping: Headwear
Wearing: Western Accessories

Beanies, balaclavas, hoodies, headscarves, and more are trending for this upcoming cold-weather season, but as a blowout girl myself, I’ll be skipping the hair-ruining accessories and opting for the Western trend instead.

Skipping: '70s
Wearing: '80s

This one may be highly personal, but I just don’t see myself in the ’70s trend, especially when the other option is ’80s. The latter decade is much more aligned with all the party-ready pieces I’m loving right now.

Skipping: Gloves
Wearing: Statement Earrings

Gloves are cool-looking and all, but from a functionality standpoint, I can neither imagine wearing them all day nor to an event or dinner at night without coming close to eventually losing my mind. Instead, I’ll make a statement with giant, sparkly earrings.
