As we tearfully packed up our summer sandals and put away our flimsier dresses, we couldn’t help but get excited for all the new pieces we’ll be pulling out and filtering in for Fall. Layers, layers and more layers, chunky knits, tights, socks and luscious coats – the encroaching weather doesn’t seem so bad, after all! Here are out top trends we’re coveting the closest as we rebuild our wardrobe to brace the elements.
Chevron, the stripe’s slightly wilder sister, is our new favorite print for season. We adore this bold from Delightfully Tacky, a bright mix of a striped dress and chevron cardigan, kept cozy with minimal, rustic accessorizing. Also love how well she transitions a summer dress into fall with perfect layering precision. Get the exact look with the Candy Striper Dress, or mix and match with the Charming Chevron Ring, Chevron on the Horizon Skirt & Chevron Basket Weave Bag.
2. Heating Up
Red is always hot, and we can’t wait to mix our crimson clothes and red-hot jewels with black, royal blue, ivory… the list goes on! We adore the wide-brimmed hat and monochromatic leggy look from Styling My Life. Channel red-hot heat with the Cascades of Crimson Dress, Embrace the Elements Sweater, Ring Around the Ruby Ring, and Lady in Lace Jacket.
3. Notice My Neck
Statement necklaces are a year-round staple, but come Fall we love to layer them over buttoned-up blouses and oversized sweaters to add some glimmer and feminine accents to a menswear-inspired look. Triple Thread does it perfectly, by layering a stunning powder blue gems to compliment her blouse – plus we’re obsessed with her luxe layering and bold ability to flawlessly pair color, print and texture! Try these luxe necklaces for a bold necky approach: Ivory Think You’re Lovely Necklace, Hearts on Fire Necklace, Living in the Stone Age Necklace, Girl With The Pearl Necklace.
4. Illuminating Ivory
Winter whites are wonderful, and Alina Ceusan demonstrates how it’s possible to take an ultra-feminine ivory coat and bad-girl it up a bit, with the help of leather and black. We adore our Dollop of Clotted Cream Top, Walking on Cloud Nine Coat, and Party in the Back Blouse in Cream. While neutral, ivory is truly the perfect color to use when exploring different textures, making monochromatic looks and as a template for colorful accessories!
