6 Go-To Trends for the Season Ahead

The days of back-to-school may be well behind us, but that doesnt mean the fashion flock no longer relishes in the thrill of some seasonal shopping come September. After all, letting go of summer and all that it entails (short work weeks, shorter hemlines…) is easier with a wardrobe filled with fresh new wares.

But before adding chunky knits and rainbow-striped furs to your online cart, embrace falls transitional temperatures with trends perfect for layering. Think: go-anywhere and do-anything slips, pastel-hued lace that can make the chunkiest sweater seem more feminine, and plaid that will take you right back to the 90s. Below, five trends youll definitely want to try this season.

Dare to Bare

Heather Hazzan

Theres no doubt the bra as a top is the trend to try this season. For a chic take, pair it with a blazer. The 9-5 mainstay instantly elevates a bralette, making it appropriate for day and night.

Slip Into It

Heather Hazzan

We can thank the Insta-set for the trend that keeps on giving: the slinky satin slip. Give a shorter version an after-hours upgrade with tights and the most outré shoes you can find to rack up likes on-screen and off.

Pretty in Plaid

Cooler temps may be approaching, but featherlight frocks need not be stored just yet. Rather, take a page from the 90s grunge playbook and layer them over second-skin turtlenecks. For a modern bite, choose decidedly sleek stompers and neon hoops.
