With whispers of pumpkin spice already invading group chats across the country, fall is right around the corner. So, as summer comes to a close, it’s time to refresh your fall wardrobe.

A closet refresh is a great time to get rid of worn down pieces and replace them with up-to-date styles. Fill that extra space in your dresser, with the latest fall trends inspired by designer fashion.

This fall the fashion world is seeing red! Bright and bold reds have already taken over the runways – like Sandy Liang, Stella McCartney, and Silvia Tcherrasi to name a few. And soon, they’ll be a mainstay in your closet. The trend is going by several names but know that it’s all about raging reds.

Updated Trench Coats

While trench coats have been a classic fashion item for decades, this fall, designers are updating the wardrobe classic. Moving away from traditional beige, trenches are being made in asymmetric cuts, bold colors, and a variety of fabrics.

Lauren Ralph Lauren Denim Trench Coat

Lauren Ralph Lauren’s Denim Trench Coat is a way to dive into this new trend through wearing a familiar fabric. This coat maintains all the features you love from a trench coat. Parallel rows of tortoise buttons, storm flaps, and buttoned shoulder epaulets are all there. 

But, this denim double-breasted coat deviates from the usual design by incorporating raglan seams on the sleeves for a more relaxed feel. Grab yours in sizes two to 18. Or, plus sizes 14W to 22W.

Back to Basics

It’s time to dust off your button-up shirt and denim jeans. This fall the trend is less about branching out, and more about honing in on the basics while giving them a much needed update. Gucci, Bottega Veneta, and Valentino are just a few of the designers that have shown upgraded versions of the basic outfit on the runway.

Good American’s Crystal Good Shirt takes a basic white button up to the next level with its all-over crystal detail. These crystals are large enough to be noticed yet small enough to easily wear everyday. Underneath the crystals is a classic poplin shirt. It boasts an oversized fit with a crisp collar and cuffs. Shop sizes XXS/XS to 4XL/5XL.

Balance out your blinged out top with the Universal Standard Etta High Rise Straight Leg Jeans. The basics look is all about casual dressing that isn’t too tight and these jeans fit the bill. They offer plenty of stretch so you don’t feel confined. Grab a new pair of denim jeans in sizes 00 to 40 in a regular or tall inseam.

Poppin’ Peplum

Love it or hate it, peplum is officially back. The early 2010’s fashion essential has crept its way into early 2020’s fashion. A peplum top usually hugs the upper half of the torso until it flares out at the waist. Everyone is back on the peplum train – like Balmain, Moschino and Paco Rabanne.

SPANX AirEssentials Peplum ‘At-the-Hip’ Top

Ease your way back into peplum with a top that can go with any bottom. SPANX’s AirEssentials Peplum ‘At-the-Hip’ Top is a slightly softer peplum. It wears like a regular tank but its paneled design lets the flare come out more at the sides than in the front and back. This top is made of a lightweight stretchy knit. Available in white and black, shop your size from XS to 3X.

No pants, please

When you think about it the phrase “no shirt, no shoes, no service” never mentions pants. Maybe that’s why fashion houses left and right have at least a few looks in their show that are pants-free. Instead of pants, designers (like Christian Siriano) are opting for barely there shorts. Some might even say regular pants are out and hot pants have returned.

ODDOBODY Organic Cotton Sleep Short

ODDOBODY’s Organic Cotton Sleep Short can be worn in or out of the bedroom. These breathable 100 percent cotton shorts cover what you need covered so you can let your legs be the star of the show. Here’s a tip, if you want to follow the trend but crave more coverage, wear a pair of opaque tights underneath. Available in five colors, shop sizes X-Small to XX-Large.
