While it might seem a little early to be thinking about what you’ll be wearing this fall, just keep in mind that those cooler temperatures can arrive without warning.
Our advice: start planning now.
Designers offered a bit of everything on the Fall 2022 runways. To make it easier, here are eight styles you might want to put on your bucket list. The best news is that many of these pieces are probably the ones you already own.
Anything equestrian should be on your fall list. Find unbridled style in tweeds, hack jackets, knee-high boots and horse bit-inspired prints. These casual pieces fit easily into your existing wardrobe for a weekend in the country or even in the city.
Today’s lingerie goes beyond your average satin dress. Make no mistake, the slip dress continues to be relevant. However, the designers took this idea one step further by incorporating sheer fabrics with just a hint of color. A nod to corsetry was also evident in the structured bodices as well as the leatherwork.
Long and lean
In response to the mini-thighs of recent seasons; the maxi is back. Floor-skimming lengths appear in column skirts and dresses. Think bias cuts and long lines (no body-con). This trend doesn’t stop at skirts and dresses, baggy, exaggerated, menswear-inspired pants offer a relaxed, backless option.
We can always expect an adaptation of the suitable for each season. The suit has resurfaced for 2022 with a bolder look, incorporating powerful shoulders, borrowed from the boys’ tailoring and oversized proportions, all possibly due to a ‘back to the office’ shift. The Tuxedo, aka the tuxedo, is also a top evening trend in this category.
Back to black
After seasons of bright highlighters and dopamine-releasing colors, designers hit the color reset button. Black has returned. This chromatic change is a welcome respite for our eyes and our closets. Go for head-to-toe black for the day – think 90s minimalism – or the sparkle of black sequins for the evening.
This basic is reinvented for fall. Designers have incorporated trench coat details into everything from skirts to dresses. The classic coat itself gets a makeover with additional pleats, corsetry details and unconventional colors.
To the west
The Wild West is alive and well. Footwear trends are turning to cowboy boots and shoes with Western-inspired detailing. Leather fringes complete the looks of accessories and clothing. While endless versions of classic denim (especially paired with white) will have you saying “yippee-ki-yay!”
