The end of summer is always my favorite time of year because before you can even start thinking about reorganizing your closet and bringing jeans and sweaters back into regular rotation, the new fall styles come flooding into my inbox and Instagram feed. I go down a deep hole of layering, rich colors, new prints, denim styles, the next best sweatpants, and more.
This fall, I’m noticing some trends on repeat, ones that will never leave, and ones that are new to me (and I’m totally on board). I have a love-hate relationship with trends because I always have to ask myself, will I only like this item for fall 2017 or will I be wearing this for years to come? These days, I also question the quality: Is it going shred after one wash? Does it say to hand wash/dry clean only? Or is it wash cold, dry low (#goals)? And lately, what’s coming to the forefront, is it made in the US or in a fair/safe work environment, and is it using materials that are sourced with environmentally sound practices?
Lucky for me (and you!), prAna’s is giving me all the answers I want to hear with their new fall line. Classic and stylish pieces that can be worn in multiple seasons for multiple years (they’re that good), prints and cuts that make you feel confident, and quality making each piece of clothing comfortable, functional, and another step in reducing our green footprint.
Let’s get to trending with prAna.
Classic is always in.
One of my fashion goals this year is to purge my closet, but keep my staple items. These are the pieces that I wear all the time, that pair well and easily with a lot of other clothes, and seem to fit into the evergreen, always-in-style category. My always-in-style (for me) pieces tend to revolve around denim, versatile blouses that can be dressed up or down, and black sweaters and jackets that go great with everything imaginable.
Summer style is bright and colorful, fun and carefree, it's filled with lightweight materials and clothes built for the summer heat. But around this time every year it hits me: I'm ready for fall! And fall? It's all about layers, skinny jeans, warmth and comfort. I'm kicking off my #prAnaFallStyle with a few transitional pieces that will take me from the end of summer right into autumn. I can't help but keep a bit of brightness from the summer in my outfit though! Read more on AllThingsKate.com and get 15% off @prana with code FAKR15! #sweatpinkpartner #ad #prAnaStyle #sweatpink

A white blouse and denim can take you from meetings to cocktail hour in an instant. Kate from All Things Kate is wearing the London Jeans with the Robyn Top for a staple outfit that you can dress up or down with the right accessories. And I LOVE how Kate has paired this prAna outfit with a bright cardigan for a pop of color that will definitely stand out. Bright pink is not your typical fall color, and I love it!

It's clear Corinne is also IN for the staple pieces, and she knows how to rock the London Jeans and the Robyn Top (and the American flag) for an all over classic look. Paired with a pair of riding boots, this outfit is making me so excited for fall!
Vibrant Colors and Prints
My cure for seasonal blues? Brighten up the wardrobe with fun prints and colors so you’ll be adventuring in style and adding vibrancy to the shorter days and darker colors of fall.
What a day! I saw @ultrarunnersd off at the start of his 4th #Tahoe200, worked all day, experienced my first hail storm in a very long time, check out my stories for photos, met up with @gregknottlemond, we took a nice little walk around Sierra at Tahoe ski resort, partly in the rain & when we turned around we were treated to a beautiful double rainbow! If you look real close you can see it behind me 😉🌈. Nowto get some rest while we wait for Sean to arrive at the 100k aid station. He's crushing it but it's getting chilly out there. Current temp where I am is 51. Happy weekend my friends & to all my Florida friends, stay safe. #embracethespace #neverstopexploring #exploremore #sierraattahoe #tahoe #rainbow #forest #naturelover #optoutside #getoutside #runwithme #pranafallstyle17 #pranastyle #sweatpink #sweatpinkpartner #running4thosewhocant #weather #skiresort #runnergirl #trailrunning #dirtbagrunners #runwithme #runhappy #trailporn #seenonmyrun #hike

Jenny from Runny Legs definitely embodies brightness inside and out, especially when she's rocking her Roxanne Printed Leggings on all her running adventures! Bright prints and colors don’t typically appear in my fall wardrobe, but I'm about to change my ways.

I'm absolutely loving bold, rich colors like in Nicole’s (FitFul Focus) outfit, pictured above. Her print combo is subtle and eye-catching at the same time, not to mention she can totally rock the bell-bottom comeback with the Juniper Pant!
Lace-up and cutout designs
Cut-outs and lace up the front or the back designs are in, or did they ever really leave? Cut out designs are definitely getting edgier and even risque, so I'm glad to see prAna's modest take on the trend.
Autumn from A Whole Story is always rocking the latest and greatest yoga apparel trends. I'm so glad she’s on board with lace-up designs like on the Filament Tank from prAna. I love this lace-up style top because it brings a tasteful edge to the cutout trend. It’s also incredibly functional and comfortable. If you can’t move in your cute top, what’s the point?
Stylish and Functional
There was a time when these two ideas didn’t quite connect especially for fashion. I’m so happy that prAna brings these two essential pieces of fashion together and creates clothes that are well-made, comfortable, make you feel good wearing them, and allow you to go from work to workout to your next adventure.
