Fall’s fashion line-up is overflowing with must-have pieces, from bold prints and classic patterns to feminine details and modern takes on timeless silhouettes. Whether you’re looking to supplement your arsenal with a few key pieces or perform an overhaul on your existing collection, there is no shortage of options when it comes to finding fresh, stand-out styles. Get your closet ready for the upcoming season with these eight fall trends.
Feminine and ethereal, ruffles have been spotted adorning everything from blouses to dresses and skirts this season. For a subtle take on the trend, opt for a well-placed accent at the neckline or hem of a piece, or go for bold with layers of cascading ruffles.
The Cold-Shoulder Blouse
A popular trend for the summer season, the off-the-shoulder neckline will be a major must-have for fall as well. For inspiration on how to style the trend, browse Lyst’s collection of tops for the perfect cold-shoulder silhouette to suit your style. Pair with a suede mini and over-the-knee boots for a flirty, season-appropriate ensemble.
This timeless staple of fall is for more than just outerwear this season. The tartan is taking on a more subtle finish this time around, with clean lines and neutral color palettes, and is appearing on everything from the classic coats to cocktail dresses.
The menswear-inspired trend gets an upgrade for the fall season with streamlined silhouettes that are decidedly bold, feminine, and, according to Harper’s Bazaar, tailored to innovative perfection. Cut specifically to flatter the figure, the new power pantsuit is just as ideal for a night out as it is for the office.
Blossom-filled prints aren’t just for spring and summer — everything is coming up roses in the fall season, too, with ditsy florals on dresses, skirts, and more. Glamour advises trying the pattern with sportier shapes, like bomber jackets or sneakers, for an unexpected take on the fall floral.
The '90s-inspired accessory is back, and in a big way. As Style Caster puts it, it doesn’t matter if you prefer a skinny silk scarf or a chunky choker — just make sure something is around your neck this fall to add a little extra oomph to everything from button-down blouses to cocktail dresses.
Classic aviator-style bomber jackets are in for fall 2016 with a cozy lining of soft shearling. Choose a cropped style for a timeless look or a cocoon shape for a chic, unexpected twist. Pair this must-have outerwear trend with everything from midi dresses to kick flare jeans.
A basic wardrobe staple of the cooler months, the turtleneck isn’t usually considered a knock-out trend — that is, until the fall 2016 collections started rolling down the runways. This season, designers are layering the knit under everything from sweaters and button-up blouses to dresses. As Edited writes, the turtleneck will be ideal for styling with some of fall’s key lightweight pieces, not to mention an essential when it comes to getting more wear out of summer favorites (ahem, the slip dress).
