The weather may still be warm but Fall is upon us and Fall Fashion is showing up in the stores. Are you wondering what are the fall fashion trends for the mature woman? Here’s a look at what’s coming for 2020.


Metallic tops, jackets, skirts and pants are definitely a new addition for fall. Metallic pieces are definitely a statement piece. This might be a little scary for the mature woman because too much metallic and you will look like a clown. To embrace this trend, choose subtle metallic items and pair with regular colors and fabrics. This bag would make any outfit stand out!


Patterns, and specifically plaid are definitely a Fall classic. This is great news for me because I love, love, love “plaids”. You will find everything from vests, jackets, sweaters, tops, pants and skirts in plaids and other patterns.

A great plaid top paired with jeans or slacks is one of my favorite go to looks. In addition, a solid top paired with a plaid pant or skirt is a “smart” match. This is such a classic look that is should be an easy fall fashion trend for the mature woman to embrace. Take a closer look at this plaid pencil skirt. Just remember…..never mix different plaids together – it’s just too busy!


Scarves are definitely taking on a new look and use this Fall. Classic scarves for warmth will always be in style. However, this Fall season the neckerchief has made a comeback. One of my daughters, who works in retail, has embraced this trend and not only does she look great, but gets compliments all the time.

Scarves/neckerchiefs can be worn around the neck or even tied around your handbag. They really and some spunk to a blouse or sweater.

Tassels, Fringe & Ruffles

Yes it’s true! expect to see, tops, sweaters, jackets and pants with various decorative finishes around the edges. At first glance this may feel a little to young for the woman over 50. However, the addition of a fringed or ruffled piece is one of the Fall fashion trends the mature woman can embrace! Take a closer look at this fringed poncho!
