Now that we can officially discuss all things fall without getting weird stares (hey, we like to be ahead of the curve, okay?), it's time to take inventory of the current state of our closets. Is there an overflow of summer sandals? Too few boots and sweaters? The temperatures are dropping rapidly, so we'd hate to miss out on the opportunity to bring our wardrobes up to speed for fall.
So to get some intel on which fall fashion trends to donate and which to replace them with, I reached out to celebrity stylists Britt Theodora and Aimée Croysdill. They shared the top three fall fashion trends they think are safe to put away for now or donate for good and, of course, which they recommend adding to your wardrobe. We couldn't agree more, which is why we're jumping at the chance to share the intel here to ensure that you and your clothing lineup are as prepped as possible going into this season. Their suggestions are merely that—suggestions—and these are by no means hard-and-fast rules for what to ditch and buy. Instead, take into consideration your own personal style when deciding whether these tips are for you.
Keep reading to find out the outdated styles, according to celebrity stylists, and then shop the new fall trends that will take their place.
Retire: Lingerie-Inspired Looks
Adopt: Nouveau Knits
"I think the lingerie-top-tucked-into-denim look is retiring for fall. I am obsessed with the look Katie Holmes was photographed wearing in NYC: a cashmere bralette and a cropped knit sweater with jeans. This fall, we will see a lot of cozy knits with lower necklines and subtler sexy moments." — Britt Theodora
If you're looking for investment-worthy knits, look no further than Khaite.
We'd emulate Katie Holmes and style this over a coordinating knit bralette.
A knit tank top is the fall wardrobe staple you'll practically live in.
Double the knits = double the fun.
Wear this as a dress like the model did or take a cue from It girl Elsa Hosk and wear it as a top by leaving the bottom few buttons undone.
Retire: Square-Toed Sandals
Adopt: Square-Toed Boots
Croysdill recommends this expensive-looking pair from Topshop.
Alert: Urban Outfitters' shoe section is up to 50% off right now.
From the snakeskin print to the platform and, of course, square toes, these check so many boxes.
By Far's shoes always nail it.
You'll own this timeless pair for many seasons to come.
Retire: Designer Logo Bags
Adopt: Architectural Bags
"Tuck your designer handbags away in their dust bags in favor of quality design and architectural shaped bags from Yuzefi. It's like wearing a piece of art! No need for any other accessories." — Croysdill
Yuzefi's new bag shapes are making me drool.
If this emerging (and editor-approved) brand isn't on your radar yet, it should be.
We just discovered this NYC-based brand and instantly fell in love with its distinctive shapes and zodiac-inspired branding.
