When September hits and the first autumn breeze rolls in, it’s officially time to welcome a fresh mix of fall fashion into our wardrobes. With plenty of new arrivals to consider, navigating the key trends worthy of an investment can be tricky. Do you adopt a bold print, work in a seasonal colorway, experiment with novel silhouettes, or try out all three?
Luckily, achieving the best fall trends has never proved easier. In partnership with Veronica Beard, we’ve curated some of our favorite fall-ready pieces to make the seasonal transition as seamless (and versatile) as possible. From all-over greens and pretty plaids to layering pieces that pose endless styling possibilities, these fall trends will have you taking on your busy fall calendar in style.
Plaids are to fall as florals are to spring, and this season we’re reaching for the back-to-school favorite in any variety possible — from classic tartan to windowpane checks. In blazers and tweed skirts alike, these key pieces move from work to play, whether they're popping against classic basics or mixed and matched together for a bolder look.
Green is one of the strongest color trends to emerge this year and one of our favorites to use when creating a bold monochromatic look. From trendy bright hues to pastel pistachio shades, wearing your greens has never been more modern. Opt for olive suiting for a day in the office or make a statement in rich emerald separates for a night out.
Perhaps fall’s greatest offering, the ability to layer again lends a much-needed sense of creative freedom. Style a thick, rib-knit sweater atop a flow-y floral midi-dress or a lightweight turtleneck beneath your go-to jumpsuit for added warmth and dimension.
