1. Roasted Marshmallow Is The New Pumpkin Spice
As in years past, there will be plenty of pumpkin spiced foods to eat, but this year, we’re seeing the rise of a new flavor infusing everything: roasted marshmallows. First spotted at the Sweets and Snacks Expo, we predict this late summer trend will only gain in popularity as the temperatures cool off, given how the flavor immediately adds to overall cozy vibes.
Try the Trend: Nerdy Nuts S’mores Peanut Butter ($13), ‘Shmallow Toasted Marshmallow Bourbon ($20), Golden Grahams S’mores Remix Snack Mix ($5)
2. Dark Green Decor
If the runaway success of Storms in Paris—a deep emerald-like hue—is any indication, we’ll be seeing more and more people embrace a darker aesthetic this fall. While many paint companies named pale, almost celery greens as the “it” shade going into 2022, Google has seen a 40 percent increase in searches for “dark green wall paint” over the past year, a marked shift from the white-with-matte-black-accents modern farmhouse trend that’s dominated the past decade.
Try the Trend: Storms in Paris paint ($60/gallon), Le Creuset Dutch Oven in Artichaut ($250), Rifle Paper Co. Juniper Forest Wallpaper ($70/roll)
3. “Expensive Bronde” Hair
That warm brown-with-honey-and-caramel-highlights look Jennifer Lopez, Hailey Bieber and Jessica Alba have been rocking officially has a name: Expensive bronde, a riff on spring’s “expensive brunette” look. “One of the simplest and fastest ways to freshen your look for fall is to tone down blonde hair to bronde,” Sharon Dorram, master colorist and co-founder of Sharon Dorram at Sally Hershberger salon, told us. Just be sure to bring in a reference photo, so your stylist can get a sense for the exact shade of bronde you’re aiming for.
4. Loose Leg Jeans
The skinny jeans backlash continues, only now we’re moving beyond bootcut and embracing even wider fits. JNCOs may not be back per se, but ‘90s loose leg jeans—particularly higher-rise styles, paired with a fitted top—are quickly becoming a street style staple.
Try the Trend: Levi’s 501 ‘90s Original Women’s Jeans ($98), Old Navy High-Waisted O.G. Loose Jeans ($40), Abercrombie & Fitch Ultra High Rise 90s Jeans ($62)
5. Pollinator Gardens
Last year, readers were all about adding foundation and privacy shrubs to their homes. In 2022, some of our most popular stories are all about growing plants that bring all the butterflies, bees and hummingbirds to your yard. It’s a trend Ball Horticultural Company has noticed too, and if you want to get in the action, fall is the perfect time to get your hands dirty—it’s just the right time to plant seeds, according to the Fish & Wildlife Service.
Try the Trend: Sunflower Mammoth ($5), White Knight Sweet Alyssum ($10), Cuphea Plant ($38)
6. Hawaiian Vacations
Viator has seen rising interest in visits to “bucket list cities in the U.S.,” with two islands in Hawaii having the highest increase in demand this year: Oahu and Maui. Beyond being postcard-beautiful, both places offer plenty of outdoorsy things to do (almost half of Viator’s bookings lately have been all about experiencing nature). Given that September and October is one of the best times to visit Hawaii, we only imagine interest will hold strong until the holidays approach (and travel becomes much more expensive again).
7. Bluey Mania
The hottest kids’ backpack of 2022? It’s gotta have Bluey on it, according to Google. The Australian show about a Blue Heeler dog and her family has become a Disney+ hit for its lighthearted take on everyday life (and, among parents, for its heartfelt-yet-nuanced moments that can make you tear up, all in the span of a seven-minute episode). As a result, Bluey’s expected to be a top toy come the holiday season, with some claiming the plush Dancing Bluey doll will be 2022’s Tickle Me Elmo.
Try the Trend: Dancing Bluey doll ($50), Bluey Ultimate Activity Backpack ($15), Bluey Scavenger Hunt Game ($15)
8. *The* Walmart Boots
With more than 17 billion views on TikTok, “Walmart boots” are officially a thing, but we’re talking about one pair of boots in particular—the No Boundaries lug-sole Chelsea boot. Available in three colors (bone, blush and black), you’d never guess they’re $30, which is why TikTokers have gone wild for ‘em. (Just note that you may need to act fast if you want a pair—according to influencer lore, the design sold out everywhere by early fall last year, and the hype is even more extreme this year.)
