Sadly, summer’s end is within sight. We’ll miss the pools and barbecues, but we’re upbeat: There’s fantastic fall fashion to be had next season. Here is a cheat sheet with nine of fall’s most stylish trends to get you ready.
Cloche hats are in—and they’ll keep your noggin warm and looking fashionable at the same time.
The ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s are back in the biggest way—cat eyes. Invest in a pair of cat-eye sunglasses; you won’t be able to stop wearing this retro style. Wear them with the right black dress for a glamorous gamine look.
You can’t have too many scarves. Scarves as accessories are a huge trend for fall—look for ones with abstract, geometric prints to liven up a mostly solid wardrobe.
A black or tan trench coat is totally classic. Make sure to add a belt—stylists will tell you that it doesn’t need to go through the loops. Pull on a pair of the best fitting jeans you can find, and your look is complete.
Add laptops and netbooks to the huge list of things women carry around. Looking for a stylish laptop bag? Give your tote bag a rest with a messenger or cross-body bag.
Thigh-high boots cover up even more leg than usual—yet are somehow more alluring. Get this trendy shoe and wear it with tights to notch down the steaminess and turn up the style.
Oversize clutches are great as day-to-night transition bags. Look for one with a removable strap, so it can do double-duty as a shoulder bag.
Go for a big necklace made of mixed media—we love this season’s crystal-and-cloth versions. No need to layer jewelery when you have one piece that says it all.
Oversized faux fur jackets and vests have returned, a bigger fall trend than ever. Be brave and try this style—you won’t have hurt any animals in the process and we bet more than a few heads will turn. Added bonus: Faux fur will keep you warm, especially if you have on a bare or one shoulder cocktail dress.
