Selling over 200 million Pumpkin Spice Lattes since 2013 signals more than just profit for Starbucks. The long lines tell us it’s time to get the sweaters out and brush off the boots, too.
If your winter wardrobe is feeling a little too familiar, don’t worry. Some of the current fashion trends 2018 are familiar, also. Tweeds, 80’s retro, and oversized coats are all the rage.
If those Pumpkin Spice Oreos you have in the pantry beeline to your waistline, you’re in luck.
If you follow the 2018 fall trend, no one will notice. From the cut of slacks to your favorite winter coat, most everything’s bigger this year.
Here are a few highlights from the forecast:
Big, Oversized Coats
Designers are answering the call of #MeToo among their customers with empowerment.
Women entering the workplace during WWll had clothing for protection rather than decoration. This year’s runway shows hommage with suit coats, trench coats, and double-breasted jackets.
The newest versions are loose-fitting and long. Though a few designs show a belt, it’s the shape and length of the clothes that shine rather than what’s underneath.
Textured, Floral, and Long
Dresses in floral patterns and appliques are at the very shortest, mid-calf. Textures include chunky knits and stiff fabrics that stand up straight.
Classic herringbone, tweed, and bright skirts pair up with sweaters and flat boots. Slacks are wider-cut and show with layers.
And, ala streetwear, the look topped with a hat or fitted hood are tres chic.
It’s not Madonna’s black bustier, but Boy George’s long, colorful coat that’s back. Power suits, big shoulder pads, and animal prints come calling as well.
Are you a hardcore 80’s clothes junkie? There’s also gold lame and leather jackets with several inches of shoulder.
Remember pants that gather at the ankle? Yep, they’re back. Jumpsuits, too. Is this the final demise of the skinny jean? We can only hope.
Prints, Checks, Fringe, and Ruffles
There are loads of bold prints as we bid a fond farewell the old block patterns. Long dresses and skirts show layers of ruffles or fringe at the hemlines.
There’s a smattering of vintage for those who like checked patterns over houndstooth.
It’s not your gramma’s gingham though. Today’s checks range from neon green to big black, red, or purple.

The Cable You Don’t Want to Cut
We love our cable knits, and for sure they’re here to stay. They’re a comfortable friend we can bring to work, play, and date night.
This fall, there’s hooded versions, sweaters and matching slouch hats. Muted tones are perfect in layering comfortable tunics.
Don’t overlook dresses and skirts, too. These pieces pair great with scarves and leggings for both fun style and cozy warmth. Like our favorite latte, they never let us down.
