How to Tell the Cool Trends From the Rest

Whether or not you’re prepared to say goodbye to summer and brace for the arrival of fall, it’s just around the corner. As a fashion editor, I have certainly been thinking about it as new-season arrivals make their way to my favorite retailers, and I get a wave of excitement just thinking about slipping into more layers over the coming months. But recently, as I’ve been covering all the looming fall fashion trends, it got me thinking about which new fashion trends are really worth trying out IRL and which are best left on the runways.

Curious to get the input of an expert in the industry, I reached out to celebrity stylist Ashley Avignone to weigh in on how to separate the cool trends worth wearing from the rest. She explained that you can’t go wrong by wearing seasonless trends. “There are a few ‘trends’ every year that just get little tweaks, men’s tailoring for example. A great suit will always be in style. Also monochrome always feels polished and chic.” But she’s also getting into other trends that are specific to fall 2018. Ahead she’s breaking down the top fall trends to wear this season and the ones worth skipping.
