6 New Trends to Try (Before Everyone and Their Moms Do)
It may only be the middle of August, but if you’re anything like us, your mind is already thinking fall fashion. Sure, we adore the denim skirt–and–T-shirt combos we’ve been wearing all summer long, but with all the gorgeous autumn looks we’ve seen come down the runway, it’s been hard not to get excited for cooler weather and the accompanying gorgeous clothing. Now, the only question is which trends are best to test out first? Well, given that all of us like to be the first in our friend groups to try a unique look, we’re spilling on the six trends to try right now—before everyone else does later in September.
Keep scrolling to check out the trends you need to test out now, featuring brands like Balenciaga, Michael Kors, Miu Miu, Gucci, Acne Studios, and more. Plus, learn how to shop each of the looks now. We promise you’ll adore at least one trend coming your way—if not all six.
If there’s one trend that literally every single person will be wearing, it’s velvet. Some of our favorite celebrities are already testing out the trend in all iterations—from boots to jackets to tops.
It appears our favorite designers are going back to school as everyone from Dries Van Noten to Coach sent collegiate-inspired items down the runway, including prep-esque blazers, cute plaid separates, and more.
While your classic denim jacket will never go out of style, this season it’s all about the updated topper that features unique cuts and interesting silhouettes.
We’re loving this romantic, dancer-inspired trend as designers from Valentino to Acne Studios highlighted with pretty ballet flats and gorgeous dance-inspired items like wrap tops and dresses.
Miu Miu Lace-Up Grosgrain-Trimmed Metallic Leather Ballet Flats ($550)
All of the street style stars are wearing these flats.
Sometimes it’s all about the details, as Tibi, Antonio Berardi, and DKNY proved with separates featuring cool and forward buckle details.
If you’re looking for a simple way to make a statement, this look is for you. We can’t get enough of the metallic details at Stella McCartney and the sparkly accents at Michael Kors.
