Fall is heading our way, which means it’s time to get your wardrobe ready for the new season. From twists on classic silhouettes to luxe fabrics and unexpected finishes, this fall’s offerings feature something for every fashion conscious gal out there, making it super-easy to find a piece (or two) that speaks to your specific aesthetic. For ensembles that are both of-the-moment and season-appropriate, add these must-have fall trends to your rotation.
Sure, the turtleneck might seem like one of those ho-hum styles that’s always hanging out quietly in the background of the fall fashion scene. But this season, the cosy, classic cold-weather necessity is the star of the show. Thanks in part to vintage sport inspiration, turtlenecks are key this fall. And while they can certainly be worn alone, they’re also a great layering item (enabling you to wear that on-point slip dress an entire season longer). Whether you opt for a chunky knit version or a lightweight style, one thing is for sure: the turtleneck is a seasonal staple you cannot do without.
Rich, soft, and oh-so luxurious, velvet is one of those materials that was simply made for the crisp temperatures of the fall season. Seemingly, designers couldn’t agree more, seeing as how the sumptuous fabric was a mainstay at Fashion Week Fall 2016. Found in deep hues and a variety of silhouettes, velvet will be busy this season adding a touch of luxury to dresses, suits, and everything in between.
If you’re looking to update your denim collection for the new season (and what girl isn’t?), consider giving a nod to the ‘70s with a flared style. The ever-present skinny jean is taking a back seat to a wider silhouette this fall—good news for those who love the retro-chic vibe the flare provides. In addition to giving your ensembles a hint of glam, flared jeans flatter every body type and look instantly polished. Opt for a high-waisted style and wear with heels for the perfect finish.
A huge hit last season, thigh-high boots are back again, and they are just as necessary to your cool-weather wardrobe this time around. The skin-tight fit easily layers beneath dresses, pants, and skirts in chillier weather, allowing you to forgo tights without freezing the moment you set foot outside. Available in a slew of colours, fabrics, and heel heights, the thigh-high boot is now more versatile than you may initially think—and is absolutely made to stand out.
There’s no denying your fall wardrobe will include at least one coat. But before you have to break out the heavy-duty snow gear, get the most out of the more moderate temps with a bomber jacket. This classic style has gotten a makeover for 2016 via unexpected colors and fresh silhouettes. From oversized, menswear-inspired cuts to designs that feature intricate embroidery, the bomber jacket has never looked so good. Wear with jeans and booties or switch it up by pairing with a sexy wrap dress for a sportier finish.
