Fashionable Outerwear Trends for Girls for Fall

It’s that time of year to start looking!

I don’t know how it is where you are, but there’s ALREADY a chill in the air here! It’s absolutely crazy. We went out to dinner last night and I literally needed to have the boys wear jackets, it was THAT chilly.

As much as I yearn for the summer days again, I love FALL fashion, even for kids. There are so many cute trends and colors and styles that are out there right now that it really does make shopping for this time of year fun (very fun!).

I wanted to dish about outerwear today for girls. As a mom of all boys, I can say without hesitation that I am drooling over the cute and adorable styles for girls right now. They are so appropriate and so fabulous!

Here are my 5 FAVE trends for fashionable outerwear for girls this Fall:

1) Military Jacket

I love the structure of a military jacket. It’s so adorable! I love matching this with little jeans and boots or pleated skirts. I think it’s just a wonderful option for fashion-forward girls for the fall season. Not to mention, the buttons are perfect with the GOLD trend that’s BIG right now!

2) Faux Fur Trim

I’m not into real fur, so I love seeing the detailing of some Faux Fur. Last Fall this was such a big trend for the ladies, so it’s wonderful seeing it make its way to the little ladies. I love that it’s a fashionable detail for your basic down jacket. I love how it looks and it’s super cute on little heads! I predict this being a big trend this Fall!

3) Trench Cape

OK… super cute and super for the fashionista! I love the mix of the cape and the traditional trench. It’s such a gorgeous way to make both cool jackets work together. I’m telling you, if you have a little lady who LOVES fashion, make sure she gets this jacket this Fall! Fabulous!


I love a denim jacket. They’re versatile. They’re cool. They’re just the ULTIMATE perfect jacket. I love seeing them trending this season because they are truly such a statement piece for little girls to have. So ideal for any occasion.

5) Leopard

ROAR!! It’s HOT! It’s TRENDY! It’s PERFECTION!! I love Leopard print! It’s so gorgeous. I love seeing it make its way into little ladies! I love this jacket because it’s such a wonderful way to bring on the trend without it being TOO much.

Shoe Trends for Girls this School Year

Girls.. they love shoes just like the mamas! :)

I have 4 sons, so I don’t get to necessarily buy any girl shoes, but I do get to gush over the styles and the trends. My nieces are both 11-years old, so they “sometimes” let me help them with the shoe shopping, so I do get some of the shoe-girl-fix!

But the truth of the matter is, I’ve been getting a lot of questions from moms asking me what are the shoe trends for girls right now that are appropriate? Moms don’t want heels yet for the girls, they want sometimes very girly, feminine and VERY wearable.

Well… I’ve got 5 styles your girls will absolutely love! :)

1) Bold Printed Flats

I love these flats because they’re such a gorgeous color and such a gorgeous print. I love that bold printed flats are trending because it’s an easy way for a little girl to have some fashionable fun with shoes. Expressing your personality with fashion can be HUGE when you’re a little girl, and I love that shoes have easily become a way to do just that!

2) Little Booties!

Don’t worry about those tall boots, stick with the little ones! Ankle booties are trending for girls right now. They’re so chic and so cute. They can easily where these with leggings, skinny jeans, skirts, dresses, anything! I love the relaxed, and yet – appropriate feel to ankle booties for little girls. I think tall boots can be too much, this is the perfect happy shoe medium!

3) Glitter and Gold

Ahhh… very much like mama! Glitter and gold are trending like crazy! For some reason, I seem to like these shoes better on a little lady! :) I think these are so cute because these shoes just exude FUN to me. Plain and simple. They can be worn on “fancy” occasions or easily on the playground. If your daughter loves fashion, she needs some GOLD this fall!

4) Animal Prints

can I just say that I love, love, love these flats? Zebra, leopard, giraffe… they’re all trending this Fall! I love the simplicity, yet FUN factor to these animal printed shoes. Not to mention, how cool are they!? Total show-shoe-pieces!

5) Rosettes

There’s nothing like a sweet rose. Perfection. Beautiful. Elegant. You’ll be seeing rosettes on clothing throughout the Fall for girls, and I love how it’s being brought right into shoes and accessories. So adorable and so perfect for little girls. Roses are my FAVE flower, so I’m all about this trend and just think it’s the best trend yet! :)

Swimsuit Trends for Girls

When it comes to swimsuits for kids, I’m all about the boys. My 4 sons show up at the beach in the loudest, boldest, most colorful swimsuit I can find. My husband gets a kick out of it because even though they can be spotted anywhere at anytime (please, thinking of my 4 boys on the beach gives me hives!) they’re still trendy. Call it the mom fashionista in me!

And right now for boys, it’s all about Hibiscus print! I love it!

But what about the girls? What’s trendy for girls right now?

Here are 5 swimsuit trends for the little ladies in your life…

1) Ruffles — I love ruffles because they’re so adorable and cute for a little girl. They’re dainty and fabulous and just fun for a little girl! Seriously, my heart melts when I see these suits!

2) Polka Dots — I told you polka dots were going to be trending this spring and summer! I love this swimsuit for a little girl, it’s just so classic!

3) Colorblocking — Even for little girls! I love seeing hot trends for the “bigger ladies” make their way down to the little ladies! Here is a gorgeous colorblocking swimsuit for your little fish. I am loving the color combo here!

4) Flower power — Lots of flowers are making their way onto bathing suits this summer for little girls. I think it’s a beautiful touch and it’s very bold and very beautiful. I have to admit, whenever I see flowers… they make me smile. I love this trend right now!

5) Glitter — Sparkles and sparkles and more sparkles!! I love a swimsuit that shines in the sun, it’s VERY trendy and VERY beautiful. I love seeing the trend right now with glitter and metallic to add some extra shine to a swimsuit. I have to say, it’s very, very GIRLY!! (And I love it!)
