Fall Trends for Tough Girls
This fall is all about going bold. Play with textures like velvet, leather, and tartan plaid. Try out graphic crop tops layered under denim dungarees. Footwear sees a return to chunky boots. It’s a season ripe for experimentation and fun! Even more so if your fashion tastes tend to stray toward the unusual and extreme. Here are a few of our favorite fall fashion trends being rocked by tough girls and pointers for wearing them yourself.
Two words: denim dungarees. Lua, the grunge fashion blogger behind Lehappy, rocks overalls in seamless tough-girl style. Nineties kids, remember these stretchy chokers? They were sold in every vending machine and mall, and they're back! Overalls paired with crop tops create the best fall outfits, because they allow a peek of skin while still covering you up. The acid wash and chunky boots take us back to our happy ’90s place.
Toughen up a pretty sheer dress with leather accessories. We love how Ashley, the blogger behind Purely Couture and More, uses a harness instead of a belt to reign in the waist of this flirty dress. Over-the-top leather accessories make a flouncy sundress appropriate for cooler months. Vampy lips add to the tough vibe, and are a big fall makeup trend. As much as we adore a berry lip, it's fun to push the trend to the max with a black lipstick. Add a gloss to make the look more wearable.
Clear accessories like this lucite clutch and clear Chelsea boots add surprise to a sporty look. Contrasting the boxy cut of the crop top, Dominique, the blogger behind style2bones, stepped into a pair of flowy shorts. This trend is versatile—throw on a blazer and you're office ready or add pumps for a night out.
Tess of Style Story shows us that pants are for squares this fall. She marries a pair of rockin' Osbourne glasses and skeletal graphic tee with girly pointelle socks, patent leather flats, and floral headband. With designers such as Valentino and Alice + Olivia creating dark floral pieces, it's easy to take the look to fall with dark purple or black flowers.
We find slingback booties irresistible, especially when combined with metal hardware. Borjana, the blogger behind Beeswonderland, pairs these boots with leather overalls and a mesh crop top to illustrate the tough-girl take on the sporty fall trend.
