Fall is inching closer and closer and it’s time to prepare our wardrobes! Transitioning your style from season to season can be overwhelming, because new trends are never in short supply. Some are risky and fade fast, while others will have a lasting effect. Some may make you scratch your head. So, just which trends do you choose? We say, follow your fashion instincts! From fringe coats to over-the-knee boots, here’s a look at what’s trending this fall and how you can get the look.
For Making a Statement
OTK is back: Over the knee boots were everything last fall, and they’re back with a vengeance. OTK boots are effortlessly chic and remarkably functional; they will keep you as cute as they do warm. A grey suede pair can add edge to any outfit, and a flat black pair is the perfect everyday shoe.
On the Fringe: If you want to have fun with fashion this fall, fringe is the way to go. Fringe skirts, dresses, and jackets are great statement pieces. Find them in neutral colors and they may also become your favorite staples.
Suede: Suede has too long been neglected. It made its comeback last season with over-the-knee boots, but the versatile fabric is ready to take on more than just shoes. Suede jackets, vests, dresses, and even leggings are the perfect statement pieces for your wardrobe this fall.
Neutrals and Neons: Add interest to a neutral outfit with a pop of neon!
Think Inside the Box: Boxy handbags are the IT this season and they’re très chic. What else can we say?
For Unpredictable Weather:
Cool Hosiery: Patterned and textured tights are making a major comeback.
The Duster Coat: The duster is the perfect outerwear for the unpredictable weather of early fall. Paired with heels, this easy-breezy coat will make you feel very goddess.
For the Cold Front:
Faux Fur Stoles: This fall faux-fur stoles are giving the winter scarf a run for its money. Stoles are the definition of edgy sophistication, and combined with their functionality, they’re the perfect accessories. They can add a pop of color or a finishing touch to any outfit, and will also keep you warm.
Shearling Coats: Shearling is the outerwear-material of the season and we really do not mind.
