The Only Fall Trends You Need To Know About

Share

‘Tis the season for fall shopping! The cooler months are nearly here (we can’t believe it ourselves), making it prime time to start prepping a wardrobe of stylish pieces. And the fall runways abounded with trends to consider: Red is the resounding shade from accessories to clothing; show-stopping silhouettes from asymmetrical lines to ’80s-influenced workwear make their mark; and handicraft details (fringe, patchwork) and glamorous finishes (feathers, sequins) do their part for a reimagined aesthetic. And there’s tons more where that came from. So whether you’re looking to totally revamp or just scoop up a few new pieces, we lay out the top trends to keep in mind. Consider this your official shopping list.

Bold, powerful and daring, fire-engine red is no doubt this season's It color. Offered in everything from clothing to accessories (red boots are number one in the accessories realm), head-to-toe crimson is a look to be reckoned with.
