It's Time to Switch It Up—These 5 Fall Aesthetics Have Inspired Me
New season, new vibe.
I’m all about switching up your aesthetic. A lot of the time when people ask me to describe mine I struggle to answer since I so often let my mood dictate what I am going to wear that day. If I’m feeling a little edgier I may go for something all black or incorporate leather / moto inspired pieces into a look, sometimes I feel like dressing super feminine with pretty detailing, sometimes I want to look like a ‘90s supermodel running around New York. As you can see, I can be a little all over the map. But I think that’s okay, your personal style is all about expressing yourself and using fashion to show how you want the world to see you that day, and for me that’s not the same thing everyday. Other people can find a certain aesthetic and completely commit to it, and I say to those people ``I'm impressed.”
This season I have been seeing 5 specific fashionable trends that I’m guaranteed to try myself, keep scrolling to see which 5 aesthetics you should consider trying for fall.
The ‘90s minimalism look will always be a cool girl favorite. Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber often opt for this vibe, it’s all about being able to capture that allure of the ‘90s effortlessly sexy and understated vibe. Leather jackets, straight leg denim, trench coats, and small vintage sunglasses are all great ways to get the look
This vibe may be my favorite for fall. There’s something about the fall that brings this “back to school” nostalgia for me, but this time it’s like I get to decide on my own super chic uniform. The vibe is the original Gossip Girl, preppy Upper East side private school, literary professor chic. The pieces I’m loving for this look are penny loafers, mini skirts, sweater vests, and cute accessories like cable knit socks or headbands.
This ballerina inspired vibe is so romantic and pretty how can you not fall in love with it. I’m seeing fashion girls and editors alike purchasing ballet flats, embracing all things sheer and silk, loving dainty detailing like bows and sparkles, and wrap cardigans and lounge wear that looks like you’re about to head to your Nutcracker audition. Besides, who doesn’t want to look like a ballerina?
The viral Costal Granddaughter aesthetic that was all over tiktok this summer is also a super chic fall vibe. This aesthetic combines the energy of a cottagecore, New England small beach town feel mixed with a little bit of an old money edge. Think cream cable knit sweaters, button down shirts paired with a striped half zip, and a color pallet of beige, gray, white, and navy.
Nothing says fall like a neutral look. Warm browns and beige, cool heather gray, cream and white, and of course black are all the color scheme that make this aesthetic. There is something so simple, elegant, and expensive looking about this aesthetic. Brands that come to mind when I think of this vibe are Nili Lotan, Paige, and Vince. Think shearling, wool coats, cashmere, and leather. I would say I’m wearing mostly looks in this aesthetic this fall, I love it.
