Sweater Vest - The Steve Urkel sweater vest is back baby and it's the hottest fashion-forward fall trend. This nerdy chic look will be everywhere this fall. Wear it shirtless, belted, or over an oversized button-down.
Power Suiting - This fall it's all about that fresh take on power suiting. In a year that has completely reshaped how we view the workplace, designers have reimagined the business dress codes in a bolder and more purposefully feminine way.
Finding Florals - The bolder the better when it comes to mixing and matching floral prints this season. Take a hint out of the Anna Sui runway show by finding colorful florals throughout the fall this season.
Silk slip dresses - A classic silhouette that feels utterly current. I love it under a chunky knit sweater paired with white sneakers, belted with a pair of cowboy boots. You name it, the silk slip can be worn on almost any occasion.
Faux Leather Everything - Real leather is out the door and pleather has stepped onto the scene. Between pleather jackets, skirts, and pants we are seeing this biker trend on literally everything. It’s #Girlboss szn, ladies.
Puff Puff Pass - The puffer coat is continuing to gain momentum earlier and earlier every season. We are seeing this New York staple in even bolder and brighter colors. It’s now socially acceptable to wear a jacket in the warmer months, just saying.
Midi Skirts - The midi skirt has made a comeback this season. What once was considered highly conservative, is now the trend we are seeing everywhere. It’s crazy how circular fashion is. In pleated, silk, and linen, these skirts reach midway between the knee and the ankle to show off that sexy shoe.
Crochet Cool - Crochet is the perfect solution for adding texture to your transitional wardrobe. Spring/Summer 2021 fashion crowns crochet as the key trend this season. Crochet brings a cozy touch to almost any look even a black-tie wedding.
Winter Whites - I've always been into a stark white accessory for winter and fall but these days I'm loving a cream and neutral monochromatic look as we head into the transitional season. Bring on the cloudy colors. White after Labor Day? *Gasp*
Wide Leg Denim - As if this trend has not gotten enough press by going viral on TikTok. The form forgiving jeans are perfect for any season, but are making their way down the runway this fall. It's about the structure, not the stretch and we are loving them in every shade.
