While summer is sadly coming to an end, September is one of our favorite months of year because it’s buzzing with the anticipation of fall fashion and fashion week—two things that make coming “back to reality” much easier.
And today, we’re giving you the full breakdown of the must-have trends so that you’re fully equipped to elevate your wardrobe as the weather cools down.
Suit Season. The suit is back and better than ever with a nice dose of menswear inspired style. The piece you must invest in this season is the blazer–perfect for pairing with denim and skirts to give your look a touch of sophistication.
Mad for Plaid. Talk about a statement piece! Plaid has gotten an adventurous and bold upgrade with a mix of tartans, glen plaids, gingham, checks, and more coloring the runway. The piece to keep an eye out for is the plaid dress.
Statement Outerwear. Grabbing a stylish coat to keep warm is more fashionable than ever with novelty outerwear pieces like puffers, faux furs, and tailored coats. However, if you pick up one item for fall though, it must be a leather jacket.
High Gloss. Patent leather has made a come back and we’re not complaining. Everything from coats to handbags to shoes are donning this edgy fabrication. If you choose to embrace it, definitely invest in a chic boot.
Animal Instincts. Leopard is the neutral of the season, and we’re seeing it on everything—from dresses to footwear to jackets and accessories. This is an opportunity to have fun and wear it your way—subtle or bold.
Oversized Knits. Fall wouldn’t be fall without cozy sweaters, yet this season they’re big and beyond fashionable. A mix of colors and neutrals, it’s a must to choose an oversized silhouette with some detailing like a puffed sleeve or print.
Silver. Metallic is the way to glam things up this season and we’re loving the show-stopping sequins and bright, shimmery details we’re seeing on silhouettes of all shapes and sizes. A great touch to denim, skirts, and tops.
Truly, fall is like Christmas time in the fashion industry. And that’s because trends get a complete revamp and ultimately set the tone for the year ahead.
As stylists, there’s nothing we love more than wrapping up a hot summer and finding fashion forward and easy-to-wear pieces to explore and style.
Now is the time to invest in staples—boots, bags, and outerwear. As well as fun pieces to bring life and personality to your looks—statement pieces like leopard and patent leather, a fresh pair of denim with a new hemline.
This season, we love that there are finally some new takes on trends and all of the updates to the classics like florals, western-inspired pieces, and more. As always, we’ve curated pieces that you’ll fall in love with this season.
