While we’re fully prepped and ready to take on fall’s biggest trends, we’re sort of in fashion limbo at the moment, because it still feels like summer outside. Fortunately, the street-style scene at the recent Oslo Fashion Week was rife with innovative outfit formulas that combine upcoming fall looks with staples from your current arsenal (think: floral-print dresses, tailored tops and trousers, denim, sharp blazers). Here, the best from Oslo plus styling tips to inspire your right-now lineup.
Take your summer skirts and dresses into fall by swapping sandals for sock boots in bright colors and prints.
Reinvigorate your workwear look by trying a ruffled poplin top and checked trousers in tandem.
Make your printed floral dress pop with a monochromatic bag in tow.
Shake up your blazer game by opting for a textured version with a T-shirt and jeans.
Transition summer fabrics into autumn by styling a trench coat over top. Bonus points for of-the-moment white shoes and an oversize tan tote.
Embrace color by pulling out subtle shades from a print—a livelier alternative to classic white or black.
Sculptural earrings offset casual staples like denim, trenches and button-downs.
Become a layering pro by topping skinny jeans with a breezy dress. A blazer makes for a structured finish.
Unexpected color pairings are a fashion-girl signature.
Update your outerwear with ruffle accents and patent finishes—cool ways to spruce up staples like dresses, jeans and tees.
A high-collar top brings ladylike vibes to raw-edge denim. Combined with sleek kitten heels and an unusual bag, the result is effortlessly polished.
Master print mixing with timeless pieces like a tweed coat, a tie-neck blouse and jeans in complementary hues. Subtle textures and patterns are an easy way to dip your toe in.
For a pop of color, try a pair of red boots (the cult shoe for fall) in place of mainstay neutrals.
