It’s officially fashion month and the runways are dripping with gorgeous new looks that many of us cannot wait to try. That’s why it couldn’t seem more appropriate to start looking at some of the must-haves for autumn fashion that will be the biggest trends of the season. Although fashion houses are showing their spring/summer collections on the catwalks this month, that doesn’t mean we can’t take a few cues from the trends and find some of the most covetable styles for the autumn season.
The key to finding out the hottest trends is to combine the autumn/winter looks shown this past spring and seeing what the designers are up to currently. If you’re wondering how to make your fall fashion wardrobe even more fabulous this season, take a look at some of the autumn must-haves below that are sure to give you lots of style points!
1. Romantic Florals
If you thought that flower prints were reserved only for spring and summer, you are kindly mistaken. Designers have found a way to make florals work for fall, and they are gorgeous! To make florals autumn-appropriate, look for romantic rose prints on flowing maxi dresses with sleeves. There are some lovely examples here that incorporate florals for fall with lots of style personalities in mind.
2. Patchwork Denim
Denim is getting a little more grungy these days, and it’s thankfully quite versatile for all the fall tops you have planned. Patchwork and reconstructed jeans will be everywhere this season, so don’t miss out on getting your own pair of throwback denim. The more mismatched the washes and patches, the more stylish you are! Don’t be afraid to go outside the box on this one.
3. Shearling Coats
This autumn trend will take you right into winter with comfort and style. Any shearling jacket is fair game this season, and there are so many colours and styles available that you can really infuse your personality in your coat. No worries about looking the same as someone else! These chic, sleek coats are one of fall’s definite “it” items. For runway examples of the trend, this is a good resource.
4. Flat Mules
Although heels are fun and flattering, sometimes the comfort level just isn’t there. Luckily, a big footwear trend this year involves a flat sole with unrivaled coolness. Introducing the flat mule, a loafer style slip-on that goes with just about every outfit and is one of the easiest shoe styles to wear. Some might even call them glorified slippers. The best part of all is that there are so many variations in the trend with this site displaying all kinds of designers’ takes on the look.
Any one of these four trends can instantly boost your fall wardrobe from tired to trendy. Whether you choose to wear fall florals, a stunning shearling jacket, reconstructed denim, or flat mules, you are sure to rock the fashion scene with stylish presence that requires almost no effort.
