Summer is coming to an end, and we all know what that means: it’s time to go back to school (ugh). While returning to college isn’t always that exciting, preparing for fall (which is basically every fashion lover’s favorite season) is exhilarating. With fall comes the opportunity to change your wardrobe and start anew with fresh, fashion-forward pieces. Now, our only question is how should we fill our wardrobes? I wasn’t entirely sure where to look first for fall’s hottest upcoming trends, so I turned to our L.A-Based Community Members. When it comes to fashion and lifestyle, L.A locals seem to always know what’s up, so I felt it would be the perfect place to get some inspo for the new season. Keep reading to see what pieces they’re loving, and what you need in your closet this fall.

Tiny sunglasses are an accessory you need to complete any outfit. Pair them with statement pieces like a shiny mini skirt and a bright blue sweater for an eye-catching look.

Move over leather, vinyl is going to be our new favorite this fall. To keep this trend from going overboard, pair it with simple, casual basics like a sweatshirt and sneakers.
