As excited as we get when we can finally shop for new fall clothes, an equally (if not more) rewarding experience is when we realize that a handful of trends are already in our closets! If you think about it, what makes a trend isn’t just the item itself, but how it’s being worn, so by styling your old pieces in a new way, you can make them feel more modern than a new purchase.
Scroll through for 10 major fall trends we bet are already right under your nose!
As one of the most timeless designs, animal print should be owned in some variety by everyone. Whether it’s a coat, skirt, or purse, it’s time to break it out and pair it with other on-trend pieces for the season.
A-line minis haven’t lost steam going into the new season, and we couldn’t be happier about it. Style the separate with your go-to sweaters and jackets, and as the weather gets colder, you can add tights, boots, and any other favorite accessories.
To make your flowy maxi dresses (or skirts!) both fall-appropriate and in tune with the season’s bohemian trend, simply pair them with boots and add a vest or moto jacket if the weather calls for it.
Whether it’s a shift, tunic, or slip dress, everyone from Rag & Bone to Jil Sander showed a dress over pants for fall. The best thing about this trend is that there is so much leeway that all you need to consider is which dress-and-pants combo is the most flattering for your body.
Yes, you can wear your fishnets again! While we don’t suggest wearing them to work, we do love them paired with a pencil skirt or shift dress for a night out or dinner.
A more approachable take on the goth look we saw all over the fall runways, jet-black styling is everywhere! Wear your favorite black separates and accessories together, and bonus points for anything leather!
We all own simple separates, so for fall, wear them together! Don’t worry about balancing out your neutrals with other colors or prints, and take cues from Céline, The Row, Stella McCartney, and more by keeping it minimalist.
Pendant necklaces, particularly long ones, were spotted on runways such as Gucci, Tory Burch, Jason Wu, and Chloé. While you probably own at least a few, even of you don’t, one can easily be made by pairing a long chain with a charm or brooch.
Seen on runways such as Miu Miu, Fendi, and Dior, the shift dress is back for fall. Style yours with boots or layer an oxford shirt underneath (or both!) to make it feel both more current and seasonally appropriate.
Give your old wide-leg trousers an update for fall by pairing them with a statement belt and knit top. We promise they’ll look and feel like new.
