Fall is here, b**ches! The leaves are changing colors. The temperature is dropping. And our fall fashion #ootd’s needs an update, ASAP. Luckily for you, we have been tracking the runway for styles we can actually wear on a day-to-day basis. We’ve got you covered on all the dopest trends for this season.
Fall fashion is all about transitioning from your breezy summer dresses to cozy, relaxed, oversized sweaters— while still staying chic AF. To stay snug and comfy as the clouds roll in and the rain starts pouring, layering is your BFF.
With the right amount of layers, you can wear your best summer florals or that flawless flowy blouse without freezing your booty off. Recycle summer favorites and build on top of basics with special seasonal pieces, and you’ll be looking Riri-approved.
To really stay on top of your IG game, you need a few statement items that will get loads of likes.
This season, you can play with sizes, clash your colors, wear multiple patterns. Just be you, dude. Rules are meant to be broken, after all.
That being said, it’s sweater weather. So get ready to wrap up in your fluffiest sweater and update your wardrobe with these fall essentials.
A Turtleneck (Mmmk … or Five)
You need to get yourself a turtleneck this fall. No longer just your grandma’s boring go-to, everyone is wearing them in Europe (especially our fashion heroes, the Parisians). They are the best kick off for all your layered fall looks; place it under a jumpsuit, jacket, jumper, or paired with your best skinny jeans for a simple, yet amaze look.
Classic Prints and Textiles
Checkered, herringbone, houndstooth, plaid … you name it, prints are everything. These unreal textiles are a go-to classic yet modern if you style them right. Stick with light colors so the print itself is the bold statement. Why not hit two trends in one go with a flowy gingham dress? We recommend styling this under a cute, leather jacket. Try mixing different textures like velvet, suede, satin and more. This is the one time you can mix whatever the hell you want and call it fashion. Hell yes.
Faux fur is always in but especially relevant right now. Wear it with everything. Your coat. Your purse. Your scarf. Faux shearling, too. You’d make any Gigi or Bella proud.
Animal cruelty doesn’t look good on anyone, but we still want these warm, fluffy materials to keep toasty while the undecided weather goes crazy outside. Pair your faux fur clothing or accessories with simple textures so you don’t look frumpy AF.
Some super versatile sneakers are what you need this fall. With the weather all over the place this season (ugh, ew), you should be able to rely on your IG-worthy basics. Plus, you can dress them up or down, with anything from a fancy dress to the fabulous power suit you wear to work. Get yourself a bold color to stand out in the crowd.
Believe it or not, 1980’s fashion is back. Big time. Get yourself an oversized blazer with big—and we mean big—shoulder pads that might also just be neon. Have you seen Hailey Baldwin in this look. DAMN GIRL! And maybe add a statement necklace. And some leopard print somewhere. Oh, and some fringe, too. You get the idea. Over the top is what you want. What you don’t want is terrible hair, so just do not get that perm – but a scrunchie is totally aight.
Show off your socks! Let’s be real, you need socks in cold weather, and it’s only going to get colder. This does not mean you have to hide them for fear of ruining your ensemble. Complementing your skirt and jacket with some pretty socks brings prep-girl charm to your outfit. Or roll up your jeans to showcase your white socks peeking out of your sneakers, for a more hipster look. The possibilities are endless.
Denim All Day
Denim has been a major trend all year and it isn’t going anywhere. It’s the easiest trend to stick to. You’ve already got your basic skinny jeans, but you can also try different cuts like culottes or cigarettes, and in any color of the rainbow! For fall, you want an oversized jean jacket to wear over a flowy dress, or that you can layer tons of sweaters under for when it starts to get chilly.
Accessories and Luxurious Details
Make your outfits look extra AF with deluxe accessories and details: glitter, embroidery, prints, patchwork – you name it. Where summer was for the simple, fall is for more, more and oh yeah, more. So don’t forget your blanket scarves, crazy hats, statement earrings, and tinted sunglasses. Plus, you’ll keep warm while looking like you spent a million bucks – even if you didn’t.
