Cozy sweaters! Yummy scarves! The coolest boots! Fall is arriving, ladies. The trends are fun and wearable, especially with Mata Traders to back you up… 
#1.  Animal Accents
 Animals of all kinds were embroidered and printed onto every type of garment (as seen above on Dolce & Gabbana, Stella Jean, and Markus Lupfer). Of course, Mata’s rendition is the absolute cutest; “The Buck Stops Here Skirt” is printed with deer silhouettes and is absolutely twirlable.
#2.  Western
It started with fringe and went into full-on western frontier. And, since I love a good brimmed hat, I am completely on board with this trend. Get some inspiration above with Cushnie Et Ochs, Kenneth Cole, and Tibi. Mata’s “Hello Dolly Dress” works perfectly with western-inspired hat and boots. Actually, most of Mata’s prints and silhouettes for fall pair seamlessly with western accessories! Which brings me to the next trend….
#3.  Shearling
Shearling is a great option for warmth and guess what? Mata’s dresses layer perfectly underneath a fluffy shearling coat or vest! The “Fan Fair Dress” is my top pick to layer up. This mix of pattern + texture is a match made in heaven. It’s another trend that I L-O-V-E and really plays along with the western trend. (Pictures above are from Etro, Isabel Marant, Tommy Hilfiger.)
#4.  60s Mod
I like a nod to mod. As seen on numerous runways (and above from Giccu and Louis Vuitton), your fall just got a little more swingin’. Mata gives you a similar silhouette with the “Memory Lane Dress” and if you pair the “New Hampshire Skirt” with tall boots and a slim sweater you have got the look down pat!
#5.  Loafers
Think menswear. It’s always nice to thrown in that unexpected piece with Mata’s feminine dresses. I think the loafer gives you an instant ‘cool girl’ feel.  And (hooray!) they are so comfortable! Elizabeth & James and Band of Outsiders sent loafers down the runway, along with many others. Mata showed loafers with a number of looks in the Fall catalog, like the “Runs In Rows Dress” above.
The Fall shows were no disappointment. I always love to see what new trends are appearing and then incorporate them into my own style. I wanted to say that my favorite trend was Western, but those shearling pieces are giving me hearts in my eyes, too! Do you have any favorites this season?
