All the Fall Clothes and Accessories That Are Going Out of Style

“Barbie” pink is being replaced with autumnal shades.

Hot-pink outfits were big this summer, but the color trend is fading.


Though hot-pink pieces were all the rage this summer, the seasonal trend will probably die down in the coming months, according to Elisabeth Kassab, fashion stylist and founder of StylistCheck

“Instead of wearing bright pinks, opt for more autumnal colors like burnt oranges and reds and vibrant greens,” she told Insider.

Chukka boots have been on their way out for a while.

The classic boot shape has been popular for casual and business wear for years.


Chukka boots — ankle-high laced boots made of suede or leather — are officially out, according to Sahra Schukraft Brandt, personal stylist, fashion consultant, and founder of Shop the City.

“They’ve been on their way out for a while now, leaving their desert-suede footprints in the dust,” the stylist told Insider. 

Instead, Brandt recommended opting for a sleek Chelsea boot — ankle-high boots with elastic panels on the sides — in black or brown leather.

Swap your fit-and-flare dresses for prairie silhouettes this fall.

Fit-and-flare silhouettes come in and out of style every couple of seasons.


Brandt said fit-and-flare dresses no longer have a place in your closet. Instead, consider a prairie-style dress with tiered layers and flowy fabric. 

“My clients tend to wonder how this can be flattering, and to that, I say look for a dress that has a smocked or fitted bodice and/or fitted arms as this will help give some silhouette to your body,” the stylist told Insider.

Backpacks and cross-body bags can be put away for now.

When it comes to accessories, backpacks and cross-body bags can go back in storage, according to Michelle Barrett, personal stylist and founder of Capsule Closet Stylist. Instead, go for a large clutch.

“Choose one with or without a handle, but carry it like a clutch,” she told Insider. “Great options are in faux fur or with statement handles.”

Ankle boots are becoming less favorable.

Boots that cut you right at the ankle aren’t doing most people any favors, according to Brandt, especially as many women’s jeans and pants move toward wider cuts. 

“Instead, opt for a higher-rising ankle boot that maybe hits mid-calf and tucks just under your jeans,” the stylist told Insider. “No cold air hitting that bit of exposed skin for you.”

Bomber jackets are not the look this season.

Bomber jackets have cycled in and out of style over the years.


Forget the bomber jackets this fall, according to Barrett. Instead, consider investing in a long, tailored coat. 

“Choose something that finishes at least just below the knee in black, charcoal gray, or camel,” she told Insider. “Wear it with cargo pants and a knitted polo or T-shirt.”

Swap your plain hoop earrings for statement pieces.

This fall, swap out your basic hoop earrings for ones that make more of a statement. 

“Statement earrings have had such a moment recently, and I think for fall time, you can do so much better than a simple hoop,” Kassab told Insider.  

Consider an earring with dimension and volume — even small details can add something special to a plain outfit.

Retire leather leggings and opt for a straight-leg pair instead.

Faux and real leather were everywhere for a while, but the trend is fading.


Leather, or faux-leather, leggings have been a fun trend, but Brandt said it’s time for an upgrade. The stylist recommended replacing them with a straight-leg pair with some color.

“Paired with sandals or a slim ankle boot, these can look ultra chic and pair nicely with a fitted top — as opposed to a loose top you were probably pairing with the leggings,” she told Insider.

Consider replacing fitted sweaters with chunky statement knits.

Thin sweaters don’t make as much impact on an outfit as thicker knits.

“I think a fitted sweater is a little boring for fall,” Kassab told Insider.

Instead, you can swap the wardrobe staple for something more interesting, like a really thick, chunky statement sweater, to dress up your look.
