As editors, we've been continuously sharing our thoughts on the fall trends that are going to be popular this season. While we love to rely on each other for sartorial knowledge, there are some people in the industry who we look up to when thinking about what's "it" in fashion for the season ahead. Since we scan the market of Shopbop on almost a daily basis, it makes sense that the site's fashion director, Caroline Maguire, is one of said people. It's her job to direct one of the largest fashion e-commerce sites, so trust us when we say her opinion is one you should listen to.

Many trends that have been thrown into the mix for fall are a little risqué (wader boots and sheer dresses), but Maguire chose five that you can wear with no fuss. Think statement pieces like It knits or simple trends like oversize blazers. Keep scrolling to see all of Maguire's picks for the season ahead.

It Knits

"Fall is all about novelty knits. From cropped cardigans to chunky crew-necks, knitwear is an integral part of the autumn wardrobe. I love to add dimension to my look by layering fitted pieces with oversize wovens or split-hem silhouettes. Think cozy and chic!"

Platform Boots

"Platform boots are a must-have for fall. Reach for new heights with thick flatforms, exaggerated lug soles, and elevated platforms—the chunkier the better. I love that this trend gives you that extra inch."


"The micro mini is still here to stay this season. I love to pair my mini with chunky knits and lug-sole boots to lean into the modern femme style."

Oversize Blazers

"The ideal transitional coat, an oversize blazer is a closet essential. Style it over your favorite knits and poplins for a casual feel, or pair it with a minidress and heels for a sophisticated look. This is a classic staple for every occasion."

All Shades of Red

"From bright cherry reds to muted maroons (and every eye-catching tone in between!), you are sure to make a statement with this powerful color. I love to mix my red pieces with khaki, cognac, and deep browns for the ultimate fall look."

After interning at Who What Wear in 2019, she found her way to the team after graduating from LIM College in 2022 with a fashion media degree. She's also spent time writing and working for publications such as Fashionista, Coveteur, and Nylon, but she always knew that Who What Wear was where she was meant to be. When she's on the job, she's perusing runway shows, analyzing the latest thing fellow Gen Zers are up to on the internet, and sharing what she can about the modest-fashion market. You can also catch her dabbling in entertainment, talking about the costume choices of the latest Netflix series or diving deeper into how the plotline affects the viewers in a myriad of ways. Lastly, she likes to create content for Who What Wear's TikTok. Her personal time is spent doing similar but also different things—deep diving into almost every new TV show (Bridgerton, Gilmore Girls, and Stranger Things are favorites), planning her next local getaway (whenever that may be), and reading the latest Emily Henry or Sally Rooney novel in one sitting.
