When it comes to fall fashion, learning the art of layering is key. This is especially good news if you’re not quite ready to part ways with your favorite summery pieces. For example, on crisp fall days, you can still get away with wearing leather Bermuda shorts or a flowy dress—all you need to do is add a leather jacket, sheer tights, and chunky boots to make it fall-appropriate. Additionally, one of the best parts about fall style is playing with different textures—like leather, suede, fur (or faux), corduroy, and velvet. The more you incorporate into your look, the better.
And while you’re beginning to prep your fall outfits, you’ll want to keep the up-and-coming trends in mind, too. According to the Fall/Winter 2021 runways, there are a slew of luxe must-have pieces to add to your repertoire. For starters, sharp tailoring in everything from blazers to trousers will reign supreme this season, as demonstrated at shows like The Row, Peter Do, and Tory Burch. And boot-wise: western, combat, and platforms are all going to all have a major moment. As for your accessories? Jil Sander and Valentino made the case for structured shopping totes.
