These Trends Won't Be Popular in 3 Months


Daniel Bruno Grandl

We still have summer planted firmly in our minds. But as our favorite retailers are replacing lace dresses and crochet bikinis with over-the-knee boots and wool skirts, the idea of fall is slowly creeping in. For fashion editors, there is nothing quite as exciting as finally seeing the pieces that walked on the runways IRL and getting the chance to wear them. But which trends will matter most this fall and which popular summer pieces should we ditch?

Curious to find out, we tapped Lisa Aiken, retail fashion director of Net-a-Porter, to give us the inside scoop. Interested in finding out which popular pieces we will stop seeing this fall? Aiken shared two key trends she predicts will be fading in the next few months. First, she told Who What Wear, “We’ve seen a shift from off-the-shoulder to exaggerated sleeves.” That means it’s a good time to invest in tops with oversize cuffs and off-kilter proportions.

Next, she explained, “Fall is no longer all about the bomber. We’re seeing these styles share the stage with other trophy jackets such as the blazer, deconstructed denim jackets, and the trench.” Reinvented classics will be stealing the show for fall, so make room in your closet for these investment pieces.

But what else is on the horizon? Ahead, Lisa Aiken is breaking down the top six fall trends that you can start wearing now. Consider this your insider’s guide to fall shopping. Keep reading to find out every trend that will matter in the next three months.
