Welcome to this year’s edition of Fall Trends for People Who Don’t Actually Experience Fall. You can check out last year’s post if you’re interested.
If you love this season’s colours and layered looks but live in the Caribbean or somewhere else warm it’s easy to feel left out. Everyone is showing off their new boots and jackets and you’re still sweltering no matter how little clothing you’re wearing. Luckily, there are usually Fall trends everyone can incorporate into their wardrobes and I’m particularly liking this year’s options.
I pulled together some of the pieces I think we can all rock no matter where we are: wide leg pants (again), jumpsuits, Baroque-inspired looks, menswear-inspired clothing, platform shoes and ear cuffs/mismatched earrings.
There are reasons why wide leg pants remain in style. They’re perfect for practically any body type, they’re comfortable and available in a wide range of prints and materials. and they can be dressed up or down.
If you add nothing else to your wardrobe this season, ear cuffs and mismatched earrings are a cute way to try something new. Cuffs are perfect if you want some extra bling without piercing your ear again.

Like wide leg pants, jumpsuits have excellent versatility and if you’ve been rocking them all year long, do continue! Unlike those ladies in colder climates, you won’t have to add any extra layers so show off the full thing!
It doesn’t matter if you don’t feel dressed until you’re wearing heels or if you refuse to wear anything but sneakers. There’s a platform shoe for you in Fall 2016. So add some extra height when you rock that cute dress for a night out or when you run errands in a jeans and tee.
Baroque-inspired clothing is all about opulent floral prints, rich colours and soft velvet. This Fall trend is perfect for when you’re getting glammed up for a special occasion.
Finally, on the opposite end of the spectrum, borrow some ideas from the boys. Think varsity cardigans, athletics influenced tops and off course, boyfriend jeans and watches with big faces. Throw in some brogues too!
