Fall is finally here and with that comes the chance to alter your wardrobe and change up your style after a summer of florals, bright colours and lightweight fabrics. Bring on the sweaters, coats, and earthy palettes of browns, greens, yellow and more. Trends come and go, but some are classic and timeless. You may even have these pieces in your closet! If you are looking for inspiration this fall, we have a Pinterest board to help inspire you! Here are the top 8 trends this fall that you need to watch out for:
- Saturated Colours
Instead of sticking to the traditional deep, warm colours for fall. Why not mix it up? This season, saturated colours are all the rage! These bold bright colours are statements that elevate your mood and really stand out. Vogue knitwear expert Victor Glemaud has included colour-blocking into his collection of sweaters - having a pop of colour in your sweater will brighten your fall and winter!
- Tailored Suits and Ensembles
Tailored suits are chic, stylish and classic. One of 2020’s hottest street trends were women in suits, so of course it would carry on into Fall 2021! Dressed up or dressed down, there’s so many ways to wear a suit. Layer a cable knit, plaid or a turtleneck for a preppy look, or go for an edgy look with just a bralette. Whether you want to look smart or cool - you can’t go wrong with a tailored ensemble. Throw on a pair of chunky boots or loafers and you’re set for fall fashion!
After 2020, knitwear is proof that people love fashion but especially when it’s comfortable. Not only is knitwear trending this fall, designers have taken note and created luxe knitwear ranging from fitted dresses, sweaters, skirts, matching sets and more. Comfort, fashion & functionality, what else could you want in an outfit?
- Matching Sets
Matching sets have made a comeback from the 1970s! Whether it’s a matching suit, sweatsuit or a 3 piece set - they are definitely a staple you need in your closet this season. What exactly is in a matching set? Obviously a top and some sort of bottom like a skirt or pants, but it can include a coordinated coat, cardigan or even accessories! These are all great options to save time when you either want to plan your outfit in advance, or throw something on and go.
- Faux Leather and the Colour Black
The colour black will always be in trend no matter the season and how much fashion changes. Black is universally flattering and will never go out of style. Add some edge to your fall wardrobe with the use of the colour black and faux leather. These items can be the cherry on top of an already fab outfit. It can dress up an outfit and make you look luscious from head to toe. Faux leather garments include mini skirts, trousers, dresses, tops and more. This includes the ever essential staple piece - the leather jacket.
- Ski Inspired Wear
This fall we are ready to hit the slopes in style! Ski inspired wear gives you a chance to indulge in little après ski without actually having to hit a snowy slope.
