I Work in the Nordstrom Styling Department—These 6 Fall Trends Are Most Popular

Rose Hayes is a breadth of sartorial knowledge. After all, she currently works in the styling department at Nordstrom as a VIP stylist. Her day-to-day job is to keep up with the latest trends and collections to recommend to her various clients. On that note, she actually mentioned that while showcasing new fall trends over the last few weeks, there are a few key items that the majority of her clients are unanimously gravitating towards. And yes, the trends just so happen to be favorites for Hayes as well.

Keep scrolling to check out the popular fall trends in question, complete with intel from Hayes on why they’re so appealing. If you’re feeling any of the silhouettes and want to add a fresh fall pick into your offering, there’s also a range of shopping picks. 

"Blazers are back and selling like hotcakes. My customers are buying them to wear as a third piece with jeans and to wear over a simple slip-dress. Buying the matching trouser is also popular. Multi-colored cropped tweed blazers are especially great sellers because they resemble vintage Chanel. Look for interesting novelty blazers that double as conversation starters."

"My customers have been asking which shoes are trending. I’ve been showing a wide variety of loafers lately. From classic Gucci to chunky Prada styles to stack heeled loafers, there is a style for literally everyone."

"My customers are stocking up on pretty sweaters. From colorful cropped turtleneck sweaters to fine Italian cashmere cable knit sweaters, shop early to get the best selection."

"Plissé fabric is trending. My customers have been buying dresses, tops, and skirts in this super versatile satiny crinkled pleated fabric. No need to iron these pieces and they’re easily packable and lightweight too! You can find really pretty and inexpensive versions by Topshop and ASOS that look so luxe for a fraction of their designer counterparts."

"My customers have been interested in the latest puffer jackets and vests by Moncler. They know now is the time to get the best selection and the size they want before coat season actually starts (and gets picked over)."

"Stripe shirts are a practical option when a solid shirt looks too boring. I’ve been showing my clients how to make their outfits more interesting with a classic stripe shirt paired with patterned skirts and blazers. We currently have a plethora of classic blue and white stripe shirts at every price point."
