Oversized blazers

Blazers are taking all the runways by storm, and the bigger, the better! Oversized blazers, or “boyfriend blazers” are lightweight, masculine jackets with strong shoulders and buttons. The length of the jacket should stop around your upper thigh. Why do we love this trend? Oversized blazers can be paired with just about anything: shorts, jeans, pencil skirts, the list goes on! Because blazers are so timeless, you can usually find a great selection of styles and colors at Ohio Valley Goodwill. Here’s a tip for pulling off this look: buy a size up and don’t be afraid to check the men’s section for oversized blazers!






Midi skirts

Stay on-trend this fall with a flowy midi skirt. These skirts fall below the knee to just above the ankles in length, making them highly versatile for casual or dressy occasions. Midi skirts come in all sorts of fabrics and patterns, but you can’t go wrong with a basic color like black, red, or tan. Style your long skirt with a tight-fitting t-shirt or sweater tucked in and pair with flats, boots, or high heels.

All things plaid

Plaid is a classic fall print that won’t be going anywhere this year. This preppy pattern goes with just about anything. Hint: if you’re feeling extra bold, you can even mix plaid with other prints! But if you don’t want to overdo it, choose one plaid standalone statement piece such as a jacket or skirt and keep the rest of your look as neutral as possible.

Snake prints

Leopard print was all the rage this summer, but there’s a more subtle, sophisticated animal print to wear this fall: snakeskin print! How about a pair of western-inspired faux snakeskin boots, or a sleek snake print dress? Whether you choose to rock this print in a neutral color like tan or black or something more flashy like red, blue, or purple, you’ll definitely be on-trend when you wear snakeskin this fall.

Silk scarves

Silk scarves are fall’s most versatile accessory; you can wear them around your neck, tie them to your bag, or use them as a headband or belt. Adding a vibrant silk scarf will instantly elevate any look—even a simple t-shirt and jeans outfit. Try picking up a few scarves this season and seeing how many different ways you can wear them!
