With fall around the corner, you may be thinking about your wardrobe and how you will prepare for the cooler temperatures ahead. You may also be curious about which items you will need to replace and if you will be able to re-wear your favourite pieces. In this article, we uncover which 5 fall fashion trends are back for another season.
1) The Shacket
This perfect transitional piece made its initial appearance last fall. The “shacket” is in between a shirt and a jacket, making it a go-to wardrobe staple for cool fall mornings and/or nights. The shacket is extremely versatile and can easily freshen up your wardrobe by replacing either your leather jacket or denim jacket. You can wear it over a dress or skirt with booties; with a pair of leather joggers; with shorts, a tee and sneakers or with your favourite pair of denim.
2) Vegan Leather
Vegan leather is still going strong. However, if you want to freshen up your wardrobe this fall, opt for a faux leather blazer, trench coat, moto jacket, a top, a pair of joggers or trousers, a midi skirt, a mini skirt, shorts or a dress. The best part about vegan leather is that it can be dressed up or down depending on the look. Pair with booties, heels, sneakers or loafers.
3) Puff Sleeves & Balloon Sleeves
This trend has been around for some time and it’s still going strong. To add interesting detail to your outfit, opt for a puffed sleeve or balloon sleeve on dresses, blouses, blazers, sweatshirts, casual t-shirts, denim jackets and sweaters. This is a fun detail that enhances any outfit and brings attention up to your face. We love this season’s pouf sleeved blazer by Smythe. Classy with a fun, on-trend detail.
4) Teddy Bear Coat & Faux Fur Coat
Good news —- If you bought a teddy bear coat or a fur coat last fall, you can wear it again this season. The oversized coat trend is here to stay. If you are in the market for this fun style, there are many different options. When it comes to faux fur, saturated hues are big this fall. This is the ultimate statement piece that will easily transition you from fall to winter.
5) Midi Skirts
Although micro mini skirts are in style this fall, midi skirts are here to stay. This trend hits between the knee and calf and can be seen in vegan leather, silk or knit styles. We are also seeing midi skirts with slits up the side for an added cool factor. Pair your midi skirt with booties, a blouse tied at the front to show your waist, a leather Moto jacket for that cool factor or with a graphic t-shirt and sneakers for a casual daytime look.
