Though we may still be wiping away that summer glow in 30+°C weather, the fall is nearly upon us. Don’t get left out in the cold this year and stay ahead of the trends. With layered looks, mismatched prints and comfortable clothes, see how you can start getting ready for the cooler weather that is just around the corner.

More volume

Big shoulders. Strong silhouettes — the ‘80s are back, baby! Achieve this look by adding faux fur wraps to your coats or chunky scarves fit for function and fashion. The bigger, the better this year. So let your ‘80s inspiration fly and layer to your heart’s content.

Prints, prints and more prints!

Fall is a great season to start having some fun with prints. Looking for more formal prints, but with a twist? Try houndstooth, plaid or herringbone, and mix it up with a floral. Want to make an even bigger statement this year? It’s time to break out animal prints, ladies! Just remember to have fun with it.

Sleek and chic

Get ready to see some very chic and sleek silhouettes with high necklines and low hems on the streets this fall. Both demure and sexy, these looks can be elegant in their simplicity. Turtlenecks are a staple for fall, but have some fun with the midi lengths and flowy pants. You can even punch up your outfit with a bright boot or layered look.

A touch of sexiness

If you are looking for a touch of sexiness, don’t fret! From ruching, to sheer and even more cut outs, you will have plenty of chances to show your skin. Looking for something fun and only a little flirty? Fringe is a nice touch to any outfit.

Metallics are here to stay

Add a shine to any party with a metallic outfit, be it a dress, a tunic or a top. This is something you will definitely be able to wear into the winter season for your next holiday party as well!
