A Millennial’s Guide to Autumn Fashion

autumn, outfit, clothes

Autumn is arguably the best season of all since it’s not too hot and you can wear cute and interesting outfits to cover yourself if you’re too cold. There are a lot of festivities during this time of the year, one of them being Halloween. Nature shows off for the last time in the changing color of the leaves as summer turns to winter where everything is white and freezing.

Millennials are the up and coming young adults who have the power to sway the comings and goings of trends. The age of social media has enabled influential people to wield authority over what is considered trendy. Since trends are almost always a repeat from a few seasons back, there is a chance that you may have some of the clothes that will be listed below.

Consider looking through your closet so you will know what clothes you do have. If you find clothes that you don’t use or wear anymore, you can either donate them or sell some clothes online. That way, they just don’t sit inside your closet; you gain profit from sales made. If you’re curious about what’s popular to wear for this age bracket, check out the list below.

Unleash the Wild Beast Within

Outerwear is a must during autumn because it protects you from the cold. Fashion has made the utilitarian jackets and coats into something more interesting. For this year, animal prints are making a comeback.

The high-fashion catwalks from the world’s fashion capitals are seen featuring prints from different animals, including zebra, tiger, leopard, and snake. None of the collections are made from real fur as the fashion industry is heeding the call for the ban of it. Synthetic printed fur is also seen in streetwear as fashionistas wear inherited investment pieces or vintage clothing with the prints mentioned above.

Shine and Sparkle

Anything super shiny and sparkly used to be on the domain of tacky clothing and accessories, but it looks like anything holographic is being embraced as trendy for autumn. Holo, as what millennials popularly call it nowadays, is a property that exudes color that shifts in many colors. It could be in a finer-form silver dust, multi-chrome flakies, or straight-up fabric.

The autumn-collection runways are graced with models decked in different kinds of holo. There are bags, blazers, dresses, accessories, and even makeup. Anything holo that you can wear like nail polish is trendy too.

Sensible and Oversized Bags

Gone are the days of minibags, where nothing but credit cards and cash fit. When it comes to bags, “the bigger the better” is the key principle. This is to accommodate the constant use of gadgets like smartphones and tablets, which can’t be accommodated in clutches and other types of small bags.

Oversized totes are great for stuffing all the things you need for the busy day ahead. Millennials often opt for functional and stylish instead of sacrificing one for the other. Fashion brands are heeding for the increase in this demand by selling them at a lower price point.

Hot Pink

While there is a specific pink dedicated to millennials, a new shade is making waves for autumn. This time, it’s a deeper hue like purplish red or fuchsia. The runways are filled with clothing and accessories in this color. With the way things have been turning out, it seems pastel pink is out the door before the year is over.

Fashion Always Comes and Goes

If there’s anything you should know, trends come and go, and what may be popular today may not have the same reception as that during the next season. However, that doesn’t mean they will be permanently obsolete. Change is inevitable, but trends always come back in some form or another.

What do you think of the autumn millennials fashion this year, and do you think you can pull off some of the styles mentioned above? Share your thoughts below.

    I love fashion! Trends come and go so quick and it’s so hard to keep up! For fall/winter this year I’m loving long coats. It’s so easy to dress them up and wear them casual, they’re great!
