This fall we’ve put together looks featuring the latest fashion trends to keep your closet fresh and fun. Every piece was selected from local boutiques, so mark your favorite items and go #ShopWaco.

Spot On
Animal print very well may be this season’s easiest trend to incorporate into your wardrobe. Zebra, leopard, snakeskin and even cow print are this season’s most sought after prints. This trend came with designers’ recent obsession with the ’70s and ’80s, as well as the wild, Wild West. Pair your animal print accessories with a neutral outfit for a solid look, or be bold and add a fun pop of color.

Minty Fresh
Monochromatic mint looks are increasingly common this season. According to trend experts, “Neo Mint” is the color of 2020. It symbolizes a new decade focused on technological development and the preservation of nature. So this season, don’t be afraid to go green.
