10 Trends We're Most Looking Forward to This Fall
They’re frequently swinging in and out of style—sometimes they’re chic, sometimes they’re more Soccer Mom—but now that turtlenecks are making a comeback, I couldn’t be happier. Oversized knitwear adds a relaxed look to your outfit, but even thinner, streamlined turtlenecks can make you look simultaneously cozy and refined—an enviable combo.
We all know that whatever looks good on men, looks even better on women. Always. Oxfords and loafers add traditional preppy appeal to practically any outfit, and you’ll never have to worry about them going out of style, at least not for very long.
The easiest piece to transition from summer to fall, and the most ladylike. Modest while still showing a bit of leg, it’s the perfect way to balance out the crop tops that are en vogue.
The Moto Jacket→
There’s no better way to add edginess to an outfit than by way of leather—specifically in the form of a moto jacket. It’s the sartorial way of saying “I’m a badass,” and it goes with pretty much everything. Get a good one and you’ll keep it for life.
Put a Bird on It→
Animal embroidery adds a touch of whimsy to any outfit, and a little cuteness never hurt anyone. Right now, bird embellishments are everywhere. So go ahead—indulge in some flights of fancy (yay, puns!).
It’s pretty much like wearing a stylish robe, and if that’s socially acceptable, there’s really nothing to complain about. The intersection of comfort and style is the ideal place to be.
Shift dresses, mini dresses, mock turtlenecks, round shades—it all screams Mod Squad. Channel your inner Twiggy and change up your wardrobe this year by adding a little retro twist.
Lighter hues made a splash last winter, and they’re still a hit for fall. Colors like pale pink, baby blue, and mint soften up the season’s naturally rich color palette and add appealing contrast.
I know, I know—knitwear for fall? How original. This season, expect everything to be ribbed and knitted, including dresses and jackets. It will make your workday wear that much more comfortable.
Our feet are already silently thanking us for giving the high heels a rest and opting for stylish sneakers instead. But, keep in mind that “sportswear” is not the same thing as “yoga clothes 24 hours a day.” Think tech vests, tennis sweaters, and bright, clean pairs of News Balances and Adidas.
