The 90’s are back, baby! And it’s prevalent in this year’s popular fall fashion lines. Typically when you think of fall style, rustic colors come to mind: browns, nudes, reds, oranges, etc. However, there is no rule that says your fall attire has to conform to the basic, expected color choices. In fact, clothing companies are taking this concept and running with it.

With a focus on sweaters and long-sleeve tops, pops of color in your fall wardrobe are in! Although solid-colored tops are a safe bet, 2019 is bringing back striped sweaters — that’s right, Spongebob is quaking. Bright and multicolored, this fun fall style will definitely make you do a double take.

And what better article of clothing to go with your new line of colorful, striped sweaters than mom jeans? You heard me; they’re back and better than ever. The infamous, loose fitting, high waisted jeans are the go-to denim this year. Name-brand stores that are known for their jeans, such as American Eagle and Urban Outfitters, are using this to their advantage, promoting mom jeans with just about any fall top imaginable — but we’re not mad about it.

Don’t get it twisted though — sometimes less is more. Some of the most eye-catching fall outfits start with a simple top, but make a statement on the bottom. Patterned pants are a comfy way to make your outfit standout in a crowd. A simple turtle or mock neck long sleeve with the patterned pants of your choice is the perfect outfit for classes this fall: that is, if you ever get over your three-week streak of oversized t-shirts and sweatpants.

Whether your motto is “go big or go home” or “less is more,” when it comes to fashion, there is something for everyone this fall. No matter your style, with 2019’s hottest fall fashion items, you’re bound to look cute as hell.
