‘Tis the season for fall shopping! The cooler months are nearly here (we can’t believe it ourselves), making it prime time to start prepping a wardrobe of stylish pieces. And the fall runways abounded with trends to consider: Red is the resounding shade from accessories to clothing; show-stopping silhouettes from asymmetrical lines to ’80s-influenced workwear make their mark; and handicraft details (fringe, patchwork) and glamorous finishes (feathers, sequins) do their part for a reimagined aesthetic. And there’s tons more where that came from. So whether you’re looking to totally revamp or just scoop up a few new pieces, we lay out the top trends to keep in mind. Consider this your official shopping list.
Bold, powerful and daring, fire-engine red is no doubt this season's It color. Offered in everything from clothing to accessories (red boots are number one in the accessories realm), head-to-toe crimson is a look to be reckoned with.
Scrunched boots were all over the runways as a fresh update to over-the-knee designs. Paired with skirts and dresses, this throwback silhouette feels modern in shades of stark white, red and black.
Asymmetrical lines add interest to staples like blouses, dresses and skirts (midi silhouettes are most popular, however) and act as a subtle way to bare some skin in the fall.
Classic menswear-inspired suiting is cool again with an '80s revival via unexpected hues, scholarly check prints and sleek pantsuits delivered in modern shapes.
Your new blouse for fall? A Victorian-inspired high-neck to provide a touch of drama and European flair.
Eye-catching metallics, crystal-encrusted detailing and dazzling fringe are all the rage for a wow moment. The trend can work for daytime, too—simply try for a top or pant for a silver streak.
Retro blossoms are the new floral for fall. Avoid looking like your grandmother's couch by opting for feminine silhouettes paired with modern add-ons.
Luxe tan-colored bags in leather and suede are back in style in both extra-roomy totes and unusual shapes. If you invest in one bag this season, this versatile pick should be it.
Feather detailing on skirts, dresses and accessories proved to be the whimsical update of choice for designers. The idea is to add just a touch of feathering for a truly wearable look.
Statement earrings continue to be huge—geometric shapes, sculptural dusters and asymmetrical sets act as an artful statement, not reserved for evening, but as a daily adornments, too.
Handicraft detailing ranging from patchwork and fringe to folklore patterns and embroidery are a vibrant trend extending to knits, dresses and outerwear.
Seventies vibes continue to reign with shearling outerwear being the topper of choice, ranging from all-over fluff to cozy accents.
