Although many people would prefer summer to stick around for longer, autumn is an exciting time for fashion. Summer fashion involves swimwear and wearing as little clothing as possible to keep cool. There isn’t much flexibility in your summer wardrobe, since you’ll want to stick to sandals, shorts, or dresses, and sleeveless tops. The autumn brings cooler temperatures that permit endless options when it comes to fashion choices, allowing the designer to let their creativity shine. Autumn fashion this year brings some new trends that you need to add to your wardrobe.
The palette you will see everywhere this autumn is jewel tones. Sapphire, emerald, ruby, and amethyst tones are popping up all over the runways and are easy to incorporate into your wardrobe. You can choose pops of these luxurious colors in your accessories, tops, skirts, or blazers, allowing you to ease into the style without completely changing your wardrobe. Best of all, you don’t need to spend a lot to take part in this trend. You can find a range of jewel tones at your favorite clothing stores, like Old Navy, and you can use an Old Navy Coupon to score fantastic deals.
Symmetry is over-rated in fashion, and this autumn, you’ll see asymmetrical sleeves from all your favorite designers. They add visual interest to your basic tops, meaning you don’t need crazy colors or patterns to draw the eye. You can wear this trend in any color that you like and that flatters your skin tone. Asymmetrical sleeves are incredibly wearable, regardless if you’re going to work or a night out on the town. You’ll find many tops that feature one full sleeve and the other sleeveless giving a look of nonchalance.
Matching skirt suits are back on trend this fall, but with a fun twist: cropped jackets. Where recent seasons saw pantsuits trending, this year, the trend has been given a more feminine revival. That said, the look is still powerful, with designers opting for neutral tones like black, beige, and grey, and many adding belts for some added definition. Matching skirt suits are not only great for work, but also for going out with the gals. Add a fun graphic t-shirt underneath to make them look more casual.
Cutouts are a classy way to show off a little bit of skin. Instead of baring your entire arms, midriff, or legs, you can show a peekaboo with a cutout. Designers are all over the trend for this autumn, with notable ones like Monse and Dion Lee using them in unique and creative ways. These cutouts aren’t meant to be too in your face and instead are more like delicate slits. You’ll see cutouts on elbows, collarbones, shoulders, and ribcage adding a touch of sex appeal, while still looking elegant. While you’re sure to see this trend popping up at all your favorite clothing stores, you can always go the DIY route, and do your own cutouts on outdated pieces.
