With Labour Day upon us, it’s time to come to grips with that fact that summer is coming to a close. Some lament the end of the season while other eagerly have their scarves, leather jackets and boots unpacked and ready to showcase.
Whether you belong to the former or the later, there’s no denying that fall holds a certain appeal. It’s a season that captivates the fashion world and brings us from hot to cold with everything in between, leaving plenty of room for fashion week trends to find their place in our zeitgeist.
Off the Shoulder: Everyone and their mother has been rocking the off-the-shoulder look for the past four months with no sign of fading into the fashion archives. Collar-bones are universally flattering and this fall we’ll see how street stylista’s take the trend from festival-fun to fall-ready.
Shearling Bombers: Leather jackets might be the king of all staple pieces but its long lost cousin— the Shearling Bomber — is making a run for second place. Oversized, fitted, pink or patched, these jackets work well with any look from feminine midi dresses to masculine structured suits.
Metal Details: In your hair, on your coats or knit into your sweaters, metal details are everywhere. Before your inner emo-kid screams in delight, take it down a notch, these metal details are subtly incorporated to add to an overall look, not overpower it.
Fall Floral: Think dark hues and long flowing fabrics a la Florence Welch. Floral prints aren’t just for sundresses anymore.
The Little White T-Shirt Another staple making an appearance on our list with a twist is the little white t-shirt. Pair it with other fall trends like a velvet mini dress or formal wear and you’ve got just the right amount of ‘90s cool to make a statement.
