Every season brings its key fashion and fall is one of almost everyone’s favorites. The biggest top five Fall 2022 trends have much to offer as we move from swimsuits and sundresses to chunky loafers and oversized sweatshirts. 

The outdoors in the fall is full of color and our wardrobe is no different. The most notable colors for fall are neutrals: tans, browns, whites and reds. For fall 2022, clogs, sweaters and the inspiration of Harley Davidson apparel will be present in fashion and on social media.
