Although we’re sad that summer is officially coming to a close, we would be lying if we told you that we’re not a little excited for fall. Even if you’re not a fan of the colder weather and shorter days, fall is, at the very least, an excuse to update your wardrobe. Below are a few fall fashion trends of 2016 that we think are both stylish and wearable.

1. Velvet

Velvet is back and we couldn’t be more excited. That being said, make sure not to overdo it — instead try a velvet skirt or a pair of velvet heels. Subtlety is key.

2. Dusty Pink and Yellow

3. Plaid Coats

4. Burnt Red and Tan

One of the biggest colors this fall will be a burnt red. Although we paired this trend with tan and black, the red is actually slightly dull and neutral, which means that it can be combined with plenty of other bold colors as well. Experiment with brighter colors and neutral colors to see which you personally prefer.

5. Fall Florals
