The days of back-to-school may be well behind us, but that doesn’t mean the fashion flock no longer relishes in the thrill of some seasonal shopping come September. After all, letting go of summer and all that it entails (short work weeks, shorter hemlines…) is easier with a wardrobe filled with fresh new wares.
But before adding chunky knits and rainbow-striped furs to your online cart, embrace fall’s transitional temperatures with trends perfect for layering. Think: go-anywhere and do-anything slips, pastel-hued lace that can make the chunkiest sweater seem more feminine, and plaid that will take you right back to the ’90s. Below, five trends you’ll definitely want to try this season.
There’s no doubt the bra as a top is the trend to try this season. For a chic take, pair it with a blazer. The 9-5 mainstay instantly elevates a bralette, making it appropriate for day and night.
We can thank the Insta-set for the trend that keeps on giving: the slinky satin slip. Give a shorter version an after-hours upgrade with tights and the most outré shoes you can find to rack up likes on-screen and off.
Candy colors were a huge trend on the runways this season. Make like an off-duty model and toss a borrowed-from-the-boys moto jacket over a pale pink lace dress for a heavy-dose of tough love.
Any Parisian will tell you that polka dots are a one-way ticket to effortless style. For an evening out and about, wear the timeless pattern with heaps of shine to—quite simply—dazzle.
Cooler temps may be approaching, but featherlight frocks need not be stored just yet. Rather, take a page from the ’90s grunge playbook and layer them over second-skin turtlenecks. For a modern bite, choose decidedly sleek stompers and neon hoops.
Once strictly relegated to the boudoir, now even the most delicate of underpinnings deserve to see the light of day. A sheer blush-hued bra peeking out just so will have you winning hearts here, there, and everywhere.
