How you go about updating your fall wardrobe may look a little different this season but make no mistake: there’s plenty of style waiting for you to explore, whether on socially distanced racks or digital marketplaces.
Start planning your fall look with these tips and trends:
Build around timeless pieces
Some wardrobe staples never go out of style. Jeans and classic tees are always on point, but if yours are worn and pilled, it may be time to replace them.
This fall’s styles take jeans from one extreme to the next; you can expect to see plenty of wide-leg and loose cut options but also tapered ankle styles.
If you’re dreading parting with your favorite high-rise cuts and skinny jeans, rest easy knowing you can add to your collection and still be on track with this season’s trends.
Add a few trendy touches
Investing in trend-forward attire may not be at the top of your spending list, but you can easily update last season’s style by mixing in a few key pieces. Metallic tones, argyle and patchwork patterns are all on-trend this season and pair well with denim. Also look for varied takes on plaid in styles ranging from punk and grunge to schoolgirl inspired. Cozy capes add fashion-forward warmth for cooler days and fringe is showing up on everything from those comfy wraps to shirts and handbags.
Make comfort a priority
If ever there was a year for hoodies to be an actual fashion trend, 2020 is it. Believe it or not, hoodies were hot on runways even before the major lockdowns forced everyone into leggings and tees.
A solid hoodie tucked into a sassy plaid skirt is a fun way to take your hoodie style up a notch. Layered looks with a stylish bomber or blazer are also on point, or pair it with some bold print statement pants.
Keep your focus on familiar garments, add in some attention-grabbing accent attire and don’t be afraid to mix in your favorite new comfy wear to create a look that’s on-point.
