Fall Fashion Gets Real—Runway Trends You Can Wear All Season
Runway Trend: Western
Denim doesn’t necessarily mean jeans. It just so happens that the Western look is back in fashion, but in a very wearable way: This A-line wrap skirt looks great on all kinds of figures, and can be paired with suede boots and a peasant top with sweet-but-subtle embroidery details.

Runway Trend: Metallics
Common wisdom says you choose your outfit, then shoes to match. But we think your outfit should showcase your shoes! Metallic booties—a big trend for fall—shine in the daylight when paired with a cropped blue jean and an oversized coat.
Own it: Elementary coat, bbdakota.com, $160. Skinny denim in Julietta, Simply Vera Vera Wang, kohls.com, $50. Booties, gap.com, $80. Sunglasses, seeeyewear.com, $99. Earrings, alexisbittar.com, $215. Bag, deuxlux.com, $160.
Runway Trend: Pajama Dressing
Wearing sweatpants isn’t the only way to be comfortable—flowy wide-leg pants are fall’s favorite silhouette. They’re just as comfy as sweats and make you look pulled together.
Runway Trend: Pink
Monochromatic doesn’t have to be all black to look chic. Try a lighter neutral like this dusty rose, which you’ll see everywhere this fall. Just make sure to vary the textures to keep the look interesting.
Tip: Skip the high heels. A pointed toe elongates your legs just as well.
Runway Trend: Menswear-Inspired Fabrics
Menswear is in, but it doesn’t have to be masculine. This plaid blouse borrows the print from the boys, but the ruching and figure-flattering peplum make it super feminine.
Tip: Balance out volume on top with a fitted bottom. A pencil skirt is good for work while skinny jeans are perfect for the weekend.
Runway Trend: Animal Print
Animal prints are still going strong, and you can let them loose beyond an accent piece. Full-on leopard is fierce for a night out if you keep the rest of your look low-key. All you need for this dress is just one statement accessory, like bold earrings, and you’re good to go!
