Autumn leaves are falling down, as Taylor Swift so famously said, and we’re not mad about it. The season of pumpkin-spiced-flavored everything, cozy cardigans, and crisp temps is here, and we’ve scoured the runways to narrow down your official fall dress code: Leather ✔️ mini-skirts ✔️ cargo pants ✔️ blazers ✔️ trousers✔️. From apple picking to pumpkin carving and brunch to bonfires, keep reading for the latest trends of the season with styles for every occasion and price point!
No, you don’t have to own a motorcycle to rock leather or know the lyrics to “Born to Be Wild”, and yes, leather can be alternative, edgy, casual, AND chic. Leather, the new neutral, is here to stay (like your in-laws during the holidays) and it’s time to embrace it. This season’s take on the trend goes beyond pants: think oversized leather shirts, jumpsuits, dresses and skirts. Feeling timid? You don’t have to wear head-to-toe leather to earn an A+ OOTD.

Tuck a cozy knit sweater into leather pants or a mini skirt or wear it underneath a leather dress for an effortless fall outfit. Really lean into the trend by doubling down on leather – pair your leather bottoms with a basic tee and a leather jacket or blazer.
Last season we welcomed the return of the 90’s and early 2000’s mini-skirt trend with open arms and a new found desire to learn tennis. Your summer tan and bank account will be happy to know the trend isn’t going anywhere, thank goodness, because there are SO many ways to transition your favorite mini from summer to fall.

We love to pair our miniskirts for fall with a sweater and over the knee boots or tights and booties. Other adorable mini skirt pairings include fitted turtlenecks, sweater vests, and blazers. (Pro tip: blazers look the most proportional with miniskirts when they are the same length or just hair longer than your skirt!) Bonus points for miniskirts made of leather and corduroy, aka the best fabrics for fall.
As more Y2K trends come back around, prepare for a resurgence in cargo pants. Gen Z loves to wear this style low on the hips with a baby tee, but we’ve found some high-waisted versions if you are looking for a more mature take on the trend.

One of the best parts about cargo pants’ casual, industrial style is that when they’re paired with delicate lines and flowy materials, you get a fun, contrasting look. Pair these masculine pants with a feminine top in a silk, cotton, or chiffon fabric for a more refined look. And for when things get chilly at night, leather jackets look amazing with cargo pants.
Whether you like your blazers single or double breasted, patterned or plain, bright or neutral, Legends Outlets has the one (or two) for you!

2022 has shown us that a blazer can be worn with anything. Go simple with jeans and a t-shirt, pair one with a fun dress and boots, or make an oversized blazer your whole ‘fit by styling it like a mini dress with a belt to define your waist and a pair of bike shorts underneath to provide more coverage.
We love shopping for trousers at Ann Taylor and H&M because they have multiple different fits and styles for any body. Whether you’re looking for curvy fit, high waisted, wide leg or skinny, we have the perfect pants to suit you.

We all know trousers are classic workwear, but they can also be dressed down with a sweatshirt and sneakers for a cute and casual look. We also love pairing our trousers with a sweater vest and clogs or a turtleneck and coordinating pumps!
