My inner circle often taps me for sartorial guidance. I’m naturally always down to offer my tips given my role as a fashion editor. On that note, one of my friends recently asked me for advice on a few trends worth testing out first this season. While there’s a list of new items I’m gravitating toward, there are actually five that I think are especially noteworthy.
First and foremost, my best friends typically like pieces that aren’t a ton of fuss and are simple to style with other basics in their wardrobes. The trends I suggested fit that bill perfectly. They’re also front-runners because they can actually be purchased on the more affordable side. Sure, the trends in question can certainly be found at a variety of price points, but they’re available for under $100 as well.
So if you, too, are looking for a bit of fall shopping inspiration, keep scrolling to check out the trend ideas I sent over to my friends that I think you’ll also be into.
1. Lettuce-Edge Separates
A lettuce-edge detail brings a forward twist to those trusty basics. This is one detail that will continue to be a favorite among the fashion crowd.
This season, the one elevated basic that seems to be at the front of every style-setter’s closet is the oversize shirt. While there are myriad colors that are popular, a classic white blouse is a great choice.
No, sweater-vests aren’t going anywhere, but tailored gilets are where it’s at this season if you want to bring a trend-forward feel to your wardrobe. Wear a vest as a top with jeans or matching pants or over a tee or blouse.
