Every year, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale offers us a fun sneak peek at the upcoming fall trends. This year is no different! As we started looking through all of the offerings, a few hot 2021 fall trends emerged. Today, we’re sharing them with you! Amaze your friends and family with your up-to-the-minute knowledge of what’s to come when the weather gets chilly! 🍂🍁
2021 Fall Fashion Trends: Colors
Like every year, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale brings us lots of the traditional fall colors: rust, gold, brown, etc. But this year, two other colors that aren’t usually associated with fall and winter have emerged as fall trends.
Blush is such a sweet and soothing color. So it’s no wonder that blush has re-emerged as a big fall trend.
This blue isn’t light enough to be called light blue, but it isn’t dark enough to be called medium blue. Back in the 80s, we called it Country Blue! I’m calling it Slate Blue because it has distinctive slate gray undertones.
2021 Fall Fashion Trends: Booties
As we told you in our recent Cute & Comfortable Shoes post, comfort and practicality are becoming a more and more important feature when it comes to footwear. Look for things like stylish boots and booties that are waterproof and lug-soled booties that will help you when you’re climbing that big hill in the grocery store parking lot 😂🤷♀️!
What was on the fringe last year has hit the mainstream! If you’re buying new this year, consider lug soles. (Some are more “luggy” than others! 😂)
This is good news if you’re not quite ready to give up heels but also not too fond of wobbling around on stilettos! We’re seeing wedge heel booties emerge as a 2021 hot fall trend, and specifically, a lot of built-inside-the-shoe wedge heels.
2021 Fall Fashion Trends: Coats, Jackets & Blazers
Plaid is always big for fall. This year, look for big, bold plaids.
Utility Jackets & Vests
When we traveled to Italy a few years ago, I kept asking our driver, Aldo, why all of the older Italian men wore tan utility vests with a bunch of pockets in them! He told me they were “like a purse for old men!” Well, they’ve made it to America, into women’s fashion, and into the Nordstrom sale!
Oversized shirt jackets are a huge trend for fall! Look for them in solids or plaids.
2021 Fall Fashion Trends: Handbags & Totes
Apparently, America is addicted to crossbody bags! (I know I am!😂)
They’ve been big for a while now, but this year the convertible ones are definitely a hot fall trend in the sale.
2021 Fall Fashion Trends: Activewear
The Track Pant is BACK! With the trend toward wide-leg pants generally, this 2021 hot fall trend should come as no surprise!
Looser Joggers (aka “Sweats” in 80’s-speak! 😂)
Colorful Bike Shorts
We saw Bike Shorts (re) appear on the horizon in the past year or two, and this year they’ve cemented their place as a hot fall trend in the activewear section of the sale. Guess how? COLOR! That’s right; you’ll find lots of colored bike shorts this year.
2021 Fall Fashion Trends: Sweaters & Cardigans
It’s always fun to look at sweaters when it’s 100 degrees outside! 😂 Still, we combed through the offerings looking for the hot fall trends, and we found two notable ones to share!
Maybe it’s a tribute to the success of the sweet Mr. Rogers movie last year, but button-front cardis are back as a hot 2021 fall trend!
2021 Fall Fashion Trends: Luxe Loungewear
Our Covid-fed obsession with loungewear continues, and I, for one, and thrilled! When it comes to the 2021 fall trends, look for loungewear to take on a luxe feel, with lots of cashmere or cashmere/cotton blend.
I had the best time previewing the hot 2021 fall trends for you today! Are there any other specific trends you saw when you checked out the sale? Let me know in the comments, okay?
