Boldly feminine, yet daring, hot pink is no doubt fall’s It color. Offered in everything from dresses to tops to outerwear, you’ll be thinking (hot) pink come September.
Pretty On The Prairie
This trend riffs off the Western influence we’ve seen emerge over the past couple of seasons but with a decidedly romantic feel. Puffed sleeves, high collars, and full skirts define this look while lace-up and cowboy boots both balance the sweetness of prim apparel.
80s Animal Print
Entirely eccentric, animal print is boldly done for fall. More than a leopard accent, this look is about printed pieces head-to-toe, often in an electrifying palette.
Break from denim, dresses and skirts with a remarkable pair of pants. Designers showed high-octane versions from sequin trousers to leather joggers to slim-cut satin.
With kitten heels and sculptural shapes continuing to trend, the modern update is with a square toe. From wider renditions to slimmer cuts just squared at the tip, this look feels entirely fresh.
Knits are always in season, but fall’s versions come elevated with details like intricate weaves, trimmed sleeves, or in voluminous silhouettes.
Iridescent And Foil Fabrics
The new way to do glamour? Eighties-inspired iridescent and foil fabrics. Touching everything from clothing to accessories, these lustrous are made to stand out.
Heritage checks have proved their staying power through the past several seasons. Fall’s version is a totally 90s tartan (á la Clueless) done in zippy hues like candy-apple red and electric yellow.
Structured Mini Top-Handle Bags
Structured top-handle bags in compact sizes read clean and modern but with vintage appeal—a worthwhile look for both day and night.
Unique Ear Pieces
Statement earrings will always have our heart, but for fall, designers are daring us to up our ear game with asymmetrical pieces. Styles run the gamut from pearls to high-shine metals.
