Fashion Month has wrapped, the big ideas are forming, and the moods of the upcoming season are falling into place. Spring’s maximalism is still floating in the ether, with sequins dripping everywhere and ‘80s excess coming on strong, but it’s evolved for cooler weather. Designers offered new takes on traditional outerwear, like feathery puffers made in velvet or covered in feathers. Dressing up became a little more casual, with layered tees paired under gowns, but paradoxically also more constrained, given the return of the corset.
All of this seem like too much? You may very well be seeing spots (in leopard form), but wearable trends like tartans, military jackets, and great shearling will help even it all out. Click the slideshow below to see the season’s 12 biggest trends and start planning your fall wardrobe now.
