In an attempt to make 2020 somewhat bearable, let’s all take a moment to talk fandom fashion and fall, shall we?
While I do love me some summer vibes, as soon as it hit September 1st, I was busting out the fall (and Halloween!) decorations and got myself a big ol’ cup of Pumpkin Spice Latte. And now that it is officially autumn, I can finally post this!
Also, the website I used to use to create outfit collages, Polyvore, went down a couple years back and I had to switch over to URSTYLE. It is pretty much a 1:1 replacement for Polyvore and they even let Polyvore users bring over their sets … Which I didn’t know until Polyvore completely shut down and I couldn’t retrieve all my old sets. 🙁 Ah well, time to make new ones starting with some fall fashion!
Dark Academic Preppy – Umbrella Academy
Of course, this list needs some Umbrella Academy love! The HerUniverse collection is pretty much all sold out but finding similar dark academic preppy pieces will help with that kickass plaid and blazer fix for fall. Pairing the plaid with a turtleneck sweater and some loafers will complete the look and have you ready to fight crime as a dysfunctional family.
A good twist on this fall styling staple is giving it an edgier, “darker” vibe that would fit right into the world of Umbrella Academy. Here’s the inspo set I put together that merges the dark academic with preppy touches.
Nude & Metallic Tones – The Mandalorian
While browsing through different Fall Fashion 2020 slideshows online the reoccurring theme was all about nudes and metallic (or jewel) tones, and that immediately reminded me of The Mandalorian.
And okay, maybe I really wanted to put together a fashion set inspired by Mando because the first season was amazing. I seriously cannot wait for the second season!
Muted, matte nudes with hints of autumn-inspired jewel and metallic tones look great together and practically go with any sort of style. Casual, put-together, just sitting at home but still wanting to feel fabulous–it just works with it all.
80’s Geometric Patterns – Wonder Woman 1984
Another Wonder Woman movie and it has 80’s aesthetics? Yes, please!
One popular trend that keeps popping up online is definitely geometric patterns, which immediately reminded me of the geometric prints found throughout the 1980’s. Whether that is through the patterns on the clothes itself or through the cut of the fabric, I think it’s perfectly reasonable to glam it up this fall with some WW84 inspired pieces in your wardrobe rotation.
