We are so close to cooler temps that we can smell the cinnamon and pumpkin spice in the air! However, Southern weather keeps us on our toes. That’s why we’ve curated six fall looks that are ideal for transition weather and showcase some of this season’s hottest trends. This month’s looks are styled by Southern Muse at the gorgeous Propcellar.

Here are six fall fashions that you’ll want in your closet!

The perfect transition dress!

Not only is Propcellar unique with its warehouse space inside, but the outside of their building is just as gorgeous!

FALL LOOK: YELLOW STATEMENT PIECES

Rumor has it yellow will be the biggest color trend of the season, and we are here for it. Whether you prefer a chunky sweater, cozy scarf or comfy-chic leggings, these pieces give the summery shade a fall makeover.

Where to wear it:

Attend the Taste of Cooper-Young, an event that gives back, on October 17. Ticket holders for Taste of Cooper-Young can enjoy food from each of the participating restaurants, access to the silent auction and the opportunity to enjoy live music. There will also be Memphis-made beer and wine for purchase. Tickets are $50 and the event is from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Cooper Street.

You can also come take a walk through downtown Memphis’ iconic Beale Street. Peruse paintings, sculptures and more from local Memphis artists, as well as others from the Mid-South, for the Beale Street Art Crawl on October 19.

This mustard color is totally in for this fall season!

From Southern Muse: Sweater, $88; Contrast leggings, $66

It's all in the details!

We aren’t sure what we love more: the white buttons on this sweater or the detailed stripes on these leggings!

FALL LOOK: CHEETAH SWEATER

Animal print is the new neutral. Pair your print of choice with dark denim for a sophisticated yet edgy style. In terms of footwear, you can opt for heels, and since it’s technically already fall, you can also bring out the booties!

Where to wear it: 

Take a break and “un-wined” on Thursday, October 3, at Unwind for Hope, an event benefitting Hope House. The nonprofit serves women and children affected by HIV and poverty in the Memphis Area. Sip on wine, snack on hors d’oeuvres, and enjoy an art sale featuring local female artists. The event is from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Hope House.

Or, if beer is more your style, the 10th Annual Cooper-Young Beerfest on October 19 is your perfect opportunity to sample those beers you’ve been curious about. At Cooper-Young Beerfest, celebrate the hardworking local brewers who devote their time, talent and energy to making beers that are uniquely their own. The festival is regional, meaning you can visit any of the brewers who are located within a day’s drive from Cooper-Young. The event will raise money for the Cooper-Young Community Association (CYCA), which keeps the neighborhood clean, friendly, safe and welcoming for everyone.

Cheetah-licious!

The festival will return to the Live Garden at Memphis Botanic Garden. As this is a central location in East Memphis, parking and accessibility is simple. This event, presented by FedEx, will continue to benefit the FedExFamilyHouse, which offers housing for out-of-town families with children receiving treatment at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital.
Or, if you’d like to spend some time with nature this fall, enjoy the beauty of Shelby Farms while listening to some of the hottest names in the music industry at the Mempho Music Festival on October 19 and 20.
