A Look at Fall Fashion Trends and the Patterns to Make Them

Pin It
This Fall it looks like colors and mixing patterns is on trend...which is always kind of fun for tweens. What better way to express one's self than going for a statement, whether it be bold or subtle with colors and patterns?
Here are just a few that caught my eyes for some great girl's looks.
All sources are linked in the caption of the pictures...all patterns are suggestions. We haven't sewn most of them...they are just thoughts on how to achieve the look.
First up a great simple look that could go casual or a little more formal...just throw on a colorful scarf and you are set for Fall!

This look is another great one that mixes casual and fancy, as well as adding texture with different types of fabrics.

What are some great Fall looks/trends you've seen around?


  1. Very cute! Unfortunately, my girl is not into skirts or dresses. I have been working on her fall wardrobe, too. It is casual sweatpants pattern in knits with raglan top, a denim shirt with bling and some other comfy casual clothes. I wish she would dress up more, but that isn't happening!

  2. I didn't realize that I had only included skirts and thanks for pointing that out. Does your daughter do tunics...seems like you could not only modify shirt patterns but dress patterns as well to get a tunic look. As to the outfits that I chose, there wasn't a lot of focus on the casual wear. I guess when the companies put out a new line they focus on the fancy rather than the every day looks. We'll have to do a post on casual wear and find out what the trends are out there for that as well.
