Fall means layering and new colors, and wearing our favorite boots and coats again. So it’s time to get into the autumn spirit!
While it would be really easy to blow your budget on buying a limitless amount of new clothes for the fall – especially with so many tempting window displays and sales – it might be wiser to take a look at the new trends and decide what you need. Luckily, we have already done that and know exactly what you need this fall. The two biggest trends that you should know about – and wear – are velvet and lace. Choose any form of them and you are going to be the queen of street style.
We have collected our favorite ways to wear these amazing materials, check them out and choose which one works for you.
The velvet jacket
Rich and sophisticated, velvet was a common thread running through this season’s shows, and the easiest way to tap into the trend is with a jacket.
Both high-end and high street brands have dished up this party season separate in a sumptuous palette of classic black, deep navy, burgundy, and emerald green.
Our favorite is this edgy black jacket from Free People. Top any look with the quirky-cool character of this velvet jacket detailed with lace-up sides and cuffs, plus a moto-inspired snap-tab collar and asymmetrical front zip. Wear this to instantly upgrade your denim or team with cropped black trousers and heels for a cocktail party outfit.
The velvet LBD
A little black dress is always a good idea, but if it’s also velvet then it’s all you need this fall. It is the perfect piece to add to your wardrobe, whatever the occasion is you are getting ready for. Choose Boohoo’s velvet LBD with a sexy off-shoulder detail, and turn heads around. Team it with black oxfords to rock a day-to-night look.
The classic lace dress
A classic midi dress makes you look stylish and feminine, especially if it has lace details. No wonder one of the biggest style icons, Audrey Hepburn was a huge fan of this style. If it worked for her, it will surely work for you too. Get edgy with this stunning navy dress from ASOS, featuring a sheer lace fabric and a fit and flare style. With this piece, you will definitely score a wardrobe win, no matter the dress code. Wear it with an elegant pair of strappy silk heels and a clutch bag, and you are ready to go.
The sheer lace top
A sheer top is not only chic on the runway, you can also wear it on the street or – even better – to a party. Although it may not be our first choice to work. But if you wear it over a neutral camisole, you may be able to pull that off too. A combination of alluring appeal and femininity best describes Free People‘s off-white lacy top, our absolute favorite this season. A stand collar of openwork crochet makes a delicate start to a daringly sheer lace top fashioned with an exposed back and voluminous bell sleeves. The dramatic look puts a moody twist on a bohemian dressing. Our advice is to wear it with a pencil skirt and a pair of velvet ankle boots.
