Picture the quintessential New York wardrobe: Black, black and more black. Now picture that in sunny Phoenix. Weird, right? That's because each U.S. city--no matter how similar it may seem to another--has its own unique sense of style. (And weather patterns.) These are the best fall trends for each area of the country, in our humble opinion.

city trends minneapolis

minneapolis, mn: berets

OK, folks, it's getting cold...quick. But blustery days are no excuse for slacking on style. Channel Faye Dunaway in Bonnie and Clyde in a super-chic beret and picture yourself strolling along the Seine instead of stuck in a flurry storm. 

Get the look: Parkhurst ($24); Lauren Ralph Lauren ($38); Eugenia Kim ($165)

city trends atlanta

atlanta, ga: brooches

Previously reserved for grandmas, brooches are a really simple way to add personality to any outfit. They also scream "Southern belle." Pin one onto a blouse, blazer or coat.

Get the look: Aqua ($18); St. John Collection ($125); Chanel ($850, vintage)

VictorianBlouse

portland, or: victorian blouses

You're way over plaid button-downs. Try a new top that's still subtle and sexy--especially when paired with something slim on the bottom.

Get the look: ASTR ($58); Cynthia Rowley ($171); Anna Sui ($300)

city trends nashville

nashville, tn: a-line miniskirts

Flattering, versatile and a little bit rock and roll, this '60s-inspired silhouette is mostly just a lot of fun to wear. You'll see the button-front denim ones everywhere, but we love going off-beat with a little printed something.

Get the look: Zara ($40); Topshop ($85); SEA ($335)

OverTheKneeBoots

los angeles, ca: over-the-knee boots

Sure, it's not cold per se, but that shouldn't stop Angelenos from trying these leg-lengthening boots. Pair them with a floaty, bohemian dress and a cozy cardigan on crisp days.

Get the look: Choices ($85); Vince Camuto ($229); Stuart Weitzman ($798)

kansas city, mo: flared denim

Like most of these trends, flared jeans can be applicable to all areas of the country. It's just best for you Midwest gals who have a knack for dressing them up on a Saturday night.

TasseledLoafers1

boston, ma: tasseled loafers

Even if you don't go to a certain Cambridge university, copy the co-ed look in a fun pair of borrowed-from-the-boys kicks. Major bonus points if they've got tassels--that's the trendiest style of the season.

Get the look: Dune London ($110); Intentionally Blank ($199); Tory Burch ($350)

city trends chicago

chicago, il: velvet clutches

In case you haven't heard, velvet is back in a big way. But don't feel like you have to go all-out on a full piece of clothing. Instead, consider just a clutch to sneak some texture into any ensemble at any temperature. 

Get the look: Missguided ($26); Monsoon ($68); Clare V ($275)

city trends sf 3

san francisco, ca: moody florals

Dark yet feminine prints (be it on pants, a dress, a bag, whatever) are a great way to get the feeling of a new season. Even if you're holding steady at 60 degrees.

city trends boulder

denver, co: plaid coats

city trends dallas

dallas, tx: fringe skirts

city trends new orleans

new orleans, la: statement earrings

NOLA is eclectic enough that it takes a lot to look over the top, so you have full permission to go all out with your jewelry. Just try swapping out your bib necklaces for some big ol' earrings.
