1. Oversized Jackets
If you’ve been lounging and checking off errands in baggy jeans then here’s good news for you. It’s time to pump volume into jackets. Seen at Celine and Loewe, oversized jackets are now socially acceptable sans the fear of hobo tag.
2. Vibrant Sweaters
This year’s fall fashion memo proclaims that moving over from the basic, muted tone sweaters is key. From the likes of Raf Simons, Miu Miu and Loewe—sweaters with vivid colours and patterns will be all over the streets this season.
As Miranda Priestly would rather say it—florals for fall? Groundbreaking. Whether you have a penchant for the OTT flower prints or like to take the artistic route with paisley stamps, this season florals will not be confined to spring.
4. Carry-It-All Handbags
Jacquemus Le Chiquito prototypes are out, king-size bags are in. This fall, more is more and it applies to bags as well. Spotted everywhere from Marni to Khaite, it’s time to invest in bags that fit more than just a credit card and lip gloss.
5. Geometric Patterns And Stripes
The season is best known for its dominance when it comes to patterns, and this year will be no exception. Reminiscent of the ‘70s-inspired geometric prints and the classic retro vibe, structural patterns in myriad shapes will dictate the fashion rules.
6. Exaggerated Leather Jackets
Love the rocker-chic vibe that your leather jackets lend your outfits? It’s time to upgrade your favourite piece with avant-garde additions. From puff sleeves, extra zippers to sleek silhouettes—leather jackets are undergoing a renaissance this fall.
