THE SWEATER VEST
The sweater vest is back with a bang this season, and I’m not mad about it! Perfect to layer under blazers or wear alone, this is one of the most fun trends this fall and fits almost every aesthetic in your wardrobe. Today’s style is cropped and colorful or oversized and layered. Neutral is always a good idea, too! Style it with anything from biker shorts to pleated skirts. The versatility of this staple piece will have you reaching for it again and again.
THE CROPPED BUTTON-UP CARDIGAN
Cropped button-up cardigans can be found in many different shapes and silhouettes, making this trendy piece your go-to layer. The easy fit can be dressed down over a graphic tee for a casual date night or dressed up with a cashmere set for a holiday. Whether you choose chunky and cozy or blousy and feminine, this cropped cardigan trend will take you through the cooler months ahead.
I recently splurged on this cropped cardigan, and I’ve been wearing it non-stop. It’s a beautiful knit I love to wear by its self or layered over tops. I’m wearing this one above on sale for under $40.00.
If your fall calendar feels busier and you are moving away from loungewear and unstructured waistbands, try the trouser trend for a more polished look instead of reaching for denim. The options are endless yet still effortless. Pants this season are colorful, low rise or high waisted, leather or utility, wide-leg or cropped. Style them with boots, heels, or even your favorite pair of sneakers.
THE PLAID BLAZER
Though temperatures are dropping, it might still be too soon for your parka. Try a laid-back look inspired by men’s wear. The plaid blazer trend has layering potential and adds a chic finishing touch to nearly any outfit. Wear it over a tank or turtleneck and pair it with a wide-leg trouser. I just grabbed this one, and I am almost ready to splurge on this one.
THE CABLE-KNIT SWEATER
It wouldn’t be a fall without a cozy chic cable-knit sweater, right? For the record…I’m a big fan of this trend! This is a great piece for all-season layering and one that isn’t going out of style anytime soon. If you’re in the market for a new chunky sweater to add to your capsule wardrobe, this cable knit is perfectly neutral to wear all season long, and loving this chic striped knit!
THE SLEEK KNEE-HIGH BOOT
Although over-the-knee boots were the star of the show for a few seasons, the sleek knee-high boot is now back in favor. Pair them with your favorite shirt dress, denim, or skirt for any occasion because they’re much easier to style than the other boot trends that have come and gone. I’m somewhat obsessed with these chic boots; the croc print always gets me to add to cart! Black boots are linked here and brown here.
THE QUILTED COAT
Quite possibly one of my favorite trends of them all is the quilted coat – an outerwear piece you won’t want to live without this fall. Similar to the puffer coat (only cozier), the quilted coat will take you so many places in style this season. Don’t know what to wear it with? You’re in luck! There are so many different styles of quilted jackets out there and for every occasion. Definitely grab this one if you can; it sells out regularly. This is a great second choice!
