7 Trends That We Can’t Wait To Shop This Fall

Fall is arguably the best season for fashion. The humidity is replaced by a cool breeze and jewel-toned leaves, which mean the return of knit sweaters and leather jackets. Lipgloss is replaced with dark brown lipstick and it’s time to retire your favourite Levi’s cut-offs. But, as autumn approaches, so do the new arrivals of coats, chunky knits, and ankle boots and every year offers different iterations of the same roster of fashion and beauty trends.

Here are 7 fall fashion trends that will be huge!

Bright Pastels

Pastels are quintessentially spring but shades like rose, pistachio, and lavender tones are not privy to your Easter egg hunt. But what do you get when you supersaturate and brighten a pastel? A bold statement colour and this season, we’ll be seeing pastel versions of royal purples, true greens, and cobalt blues, both on the runway and in editorial beauty spreads. Style a bright purple sweater, like this Zara one with true blue denim to make a simple outfit more colourful. Whether you’re a maximilast or minimalist, you can incorporate this trend into your existing personal style by adding easy, layerable pieces. Or, if you prefer a more neutral #ootd, adding in a bright green nail colour or blue cat-eye is a great way to dip your toe into the trend. 

Platforms

We’ve seen platforms come and go for a while now. We saw it with Stella McCartney’s Derby shoes, Gucci’s Angel platform pumps, and now with Saint Laurent’s Paige sandals. Although these aren’t the most wearable, they sure are hot to look at. Incorporate the shoe into your personal wardrobe with a more neutral toned version. You can even go the extra mile and pair them with fun socks for the autumn weather. We’re currently coveting this pair from The Raye as it ticks all the boxes. 

The Clog

SSENSE

It’s about time these babies made a comeback. From Isabel Marant to Jacquemus, designers are reinventing the clog. Whether it be a revamp of the classic hippie clog or a Scandi-inspired way to look like Marcia Brady, we’re here for it. Also, it’s the perfect transitional footwear from summer to fall as it’s great for sliding on and off, and pairing with denim or dresses. Not only are clogs high fashion, but they’re also highly functional. These clogs from Jacquemus are in our cart because we just can’t get enough of this trend!

Hygge

Remember when we were first introduced to Hygge as a comfy, cozy approach to lifestyle? This concept has now inched its way into the fashion world and it goes far beyond chunky knits. If you thought the pyjama suit was the end of wearable loungewear, think again because fluffy slippers, chunky robes, and sexy knitwear are now part of the new off-duty uniform. From labels like Jil Sander and Khaite, this trend is trickling down to fast-fashion houses quickly. Layer a knit bra under an unbuttoned crisp white shirt and wool blazer, or under a matching cardigan for a chic spin on grandma-fashion. Birkenstocks seems to be right on trend with these shearling lined sandals. 

Everything Quilted

ZARA

Thanks to Bottega Veneta’s creative director Daniel Lee, the quilted trend is akin to Celine, and we’re here for it. You can currently cop the trend from Zara, Mango, and other affordable shops, or make it your seasonal investment trend. Looking to accessorize with the puffy trend? These white quilted slides from Zara are a great way to transition into September, and don’t worry, whoever said you can’t wear white after labour day is just plain wrong. 

Low Waisted Jeans

The 90’s have been back for what seems like a few years now, but low waisted jeans are officially back in full force. Iconically worn by JLo, Nicole Richie, and Paris Hilton, its 2019 revival is more refined, clean cut, and chic. This polarizing trend is totally doable when styled with the right pieces. Find a pair while thrifting and then tailoring them to make it your perfect fit. Or, find a pair in your preferred wash and these AGOLDE’s are a cool way to style the trend and are perfect for tucking sweaters into! 

Corset Layering

This way of styling is pretty easy to incorporate. Orseund Iris has its iconic knit corset piece that is seen layered on top of flowy dress or oversized sweaters to add some nuanced sex appeal to any look. This is also an easy DIY if you have a sewing machine on hand.
