How to Pull Off the 12 Biggest Fall Fashion Trends This Season

An assortment of fall fashion trends and the clothes that represent them on a brown paper background

Dressing for fall doesn’t need to be complicated. You got some sweaters, some cords, a couple of jackets, maybe a tweed blazer? You’re pretty much good to go. But sometimes, choosing to make things complicated—shaking things up just because—is necessary. Even championship-winning teams sign new players in the offseason, right? Below, we’ve outlined a dozen unknown quantities worth introducing to your wardrobe (you might even call them “fall fashion trends”). Some are hot-off-the-press, advanced-level maneuvers; some are old standbys on the precipice of a comeback; all of ’em at least deserve a look.

 

If you’d rather skip the latest fall fashion trends and stick to the essentials, we’ve got you covered.


No Sleeves Necessary

Vests of almost every variety—workwear, technical…basically anything other than Aladdin-esque—are popping off right now. Throw one on over a hoodie, and your off-hour fits will immediately feel about 20% more considered.
