Wearable Fall Trends for 2018

It’s almost 90 degrees today and how on earth can I be thinking about fall fashion?  For me, it’s really, really easy.  Each year at this time, I’ve had it with the flowy florals and am so eager to bust into my wools, tweeds, blazers and boots.  This is the season that excites me the most, and the clothing associated with it plays a critical role in these heart palpitations.

Each week, I scroll through my Pinterest feed, anxious to see where next season’s fashions are going.  And each season, I can rule out about 80 percent of these runway looks because…

1. Most women don’t look like that.   AND…

2. Where on earth would any normal person wear that?

Fortunately, there are still plenty of “trends” remaining that would translate well into OUR closets.  Attached are “Five Wearable Fall Trends”, with several examples of each.  Direct links for items shown are listed below each photo.
