The 8 best fall fashion trends for 2021 are already in your closet


Sometimes it’s just an impulse decision. We see a nice pair of shoes on our favorite celebrity, and all of a sudden we google things like “big green boots” in hopes of finding ours. Or we click on a super random roundup and spot most gorgeous dress, which makes us lose control and add to cart – and doesn’t get us into seasonal shopping. Every few months, fashion gives us a new crop of trends that we feel compelled to buy, lest we look back. Well, for fall 2021 we are calling for an opposite strategy: do you want to dress like the future? Look in your own closet first.

In news that is great for your wallet, we’ve found that eight of today’s top trends – aka the styles we’ve seen all over the runways in fall 2021 – are posts that many of us see. have already invested us. Think buttons, saturated colors, and matching sets.

Now the question is how to reinvent these pieces and make them feel fresh for months to come? In short? Introduce a little more chaos into the way you wore them before. But we’ve got a few more ideas to get you started.

Since this piece is basically considered the quintessential wardrobe staple, chances are you have one lying around. It doesn’t matter if it’s white, striped or pastel, this season it will come in handy for a variety of scenarios.

How to wear a button down shirt for fall 2021: Make it your go-to layer. When you’re not wearing it in place of a sweater or jacket (celebrities do it open with a bra underneath), use it as the base of your look, styling it under vests or jackets. blazers. If your option is oversized, you can even give your outfit a Y2K touch by adding a belt (we dare you).

We spent more time than we want to admit wearing tracksuits and lounge pants, and our legs aren’t quite ready for a pair of stiff jeans all day, every day. The oversized “work pants” AKA pants have become a transitional piece and they are more versatile than we originally thought.

How to wear pants for fall 2021: You wear them … like pants. Once considered formal, pants are now considered rather casual everyday pants. You can pair them with a graphic tee, mesh sweater or dress them up with a corset top and heels for a night out. We guarantee that once you start carrying these babies regularly, you won’t want to stop.

Matching sets aren’t new – in fact, coordinates were one of our staples even before tracksuit became our pandemic uniform. But designers aren’t quite ready to ditch this trend just yet, and we’re not really complaining. After all, what’s better than a pre-made outfit that you can put on in the blink of an eye?

How to wear matching sets for fall 2021: Add a third element. The 3-piece ensemble is on the rise, and coordinating tops and bottoms are even more fun with the addition of a matching coat or accessory. However, that doesn’t mean you have to fork out a little extra dough to get the look. Just find an item you already own that happens to be in the same color family (or prints!) And style them all together. Monochrome outfit, it’s done.

Surprise, surprise – the plaid is always a must-have fall print. This one comes back every year, so if you’re wondering if your favorite 2019 plaid pants are still on trend, the answer is 100% yes.

How to wear the plaid for fall 2021: Lean into the preppy look. Dark and Light Academia, Schoolcore – whatever you want to call it! – is a current favorite among the fashion crowd, so pair your plaid skirt, blazer or button down shirt with other structured items (can we suggest the aforementioned button down shirt and pants?), then wear socks and thick moccasins.

While we once thought of the tagline and graphics to be somewhat juvenile, our current motto is that you are never too old to wear anything. Clothes are clothes, and the truth is that a sarcastic saying or sweet illustration is an instant mood booster and allows you to say something without ever opening your mouth. And it’s convenient since we always wear masks everywhere.

How to wear slogan and graphic tops for fall 2021: Think outside the box and combine pieces that you consider to be totally opposite. A graphic tee with a poufy midi skirt will grab everyone’s attention, while a slogan sweatshirt paired with jeans and sneakers is an effortless look that always makes a statement.

Once the sun begins to set earlier and a biting cold hits the air, we are often tempted to go out in neutral and darker colors depending on our general mood. But this season it’s all about bold bold and incredibly vibrant colors, so don’t put that sunshine yellow dress and electric purple pants away just yet.

How to wear bright, saturated colors for fall 2021: Stack them. Have fun and combine at least two face shades to achieve a look with contrasting colors. Or, go muted with the rest of your look and allow a colorful element, like a pair of shoes or a jacket, to act as your centerpiece.

Arm cutouts, keyhole cutouts, side cutouts, hip cutouts – all have been spinning for the last decade or so, and you may still have a perforated piece buried in the back of your drawer. As long as it is more adjusted and not too much in distress (we will pass these die-cut skull designs, thanks), it will adapt to modern styles, no problem.

How to wear cutouts for fall 2021: The more the merrier – no, really. As Dua Lipa and Bella Hadid proved, it’s cool to wear neck-to-toe cutouts. If that sounds a bit too extreme for you, go ahead and let a cutout element be the highlight of your look. Keep the rest of your outfit simple by sticking to the basics to make sure those holes really stand out.

It’s a design detail that never really goes away, mainly because it’s so fun to wear, but it’s currently experiencing a real resurgence. If you own a fringed jacket, dress, or handbag, you’ll definitely want to incorporate this item into your fall wardrobe, whether you want to channel the new flapper style of the 20s or feel the influence of the 70s of 2021.

How to wear bangs for fall 2021: There’s really no wrong way to wear fringed clothes, but sticking to a specific decade is always pretty fun. Give your fringed dress a Gatsby the magnificent turn it by accessorizing with large earrings and metallic items, or take this fringed jacket back to the ’70s, wearing it with patchwork pieces and flared pants.
