Changing your look is a given when the mercury dips, but this year, the shift feels particularly sharp. We’ve compiled our fave trends worth updating your wardrobe for.
Trend: Pale Blue
Frosty blue is a break from the classic autumnal colour palette of oxblood, hunter green and camel. The calming tone works in both small and larger doses.
Trend: Chunky Knits
After months of baring your limbs, there’s something undeniably comforting about snuggling into a plush cable-knit sweater. Pair it with a fitted skirt and heels.
Trend: Big Blazers
Whether made of iconic houndstooth or classic glen-check plaid, the oversize blazer is the “it” piece this fall. Think less corporate boardroom and more contemporary coffee shop.
Trend: Robe Wraps
Boudoir-inspired robe dresses are having a moment. Look luxurious while feeling cozy with a chic satiny robe.
Trend: Oversize Sweaters
When it comes to sweaters—and graphic prints—go big or go home. We adore a large pullover with a delicate tulle skirt.
Trend: Leather Looks
Made into shirts, skirts, dresses and trousers as well as the ubiquitous moto jacket, leather has gone through an overwhelmingly grown-up transition.
We’re not talking about your grandma’s kind of quilt. The Fall 2018 runways were flooded with the diamond-stitched texture, from dresses to bags. We like the look best on a topper like this bomber.

Once a taboo travel accessory, the fanny pack has successfully staged a major return for 2018. In materials ranging from ’90s nylon to modern leather, this hiphugger is insanely functional and really can look chic. Wear the hands-free style slung around your hips or, for a more subdued appeal, as you would a cross-body bag.
