The Best Fall Trends For Every Body Type

Although we wish summer could last forever, the upside of fall being just around the corner is all the fabulous fashion that comes along with it. That said, navigating runway silhouettes like voluminous pants, A-line skirts and belted vests can be intimidating—not to mention it can be hard to tell if they are actually flattering. Not to worry, we’ve dissected the best runway trends for every body type so you know exactly what to hone in on this season.

Body Type: Petite

Trend: A-Line Miniskirts

Not everyone can pull off a miniskirt since they are—well—short, but if you're petite, this silhouette is made for you since you can rock one and still look classy. To make it work appropriate, pair the skirt with opaque tights. We're guessing this will be one of your go-tos this fall.

Body Type: Tall

Trend: Statement Trousers

If you've got legs for miles you can pull off this season's bold trousers, which come in a number of eye-catching iterations from high-gloss leather to folk-print wool to disco lamé. Wear these voluminous pants with a fitted sweater or pussy-bow blouse for a festive-yet-polished look.

Body Type: Hourglass

Trend: Long Belted Jackets & Vests

If you have an hourglass figure, a belted waist is probably already one of your signature styles. This season, try a thigh-grazing vest or blazer paired with monochromatic wide-leg trousers or flares—the dramatic silhouettes will balance your curves.

Body Type: Pear Shape

Trend: Shearling Jackets

The key to playing up your assets is to focus on what you like. If you're pear shaped, try drawing attention up to the top half of your body with fall's It jacket—a shearling. The notion of getting wrapped up in a luxurious shearling has us wishing fall would get here already.
