The Fall Trends That Are Going to Be HUGE (and Are Still Easy to Wear)

Let's be honest—as much as we like to study runway trends and predict which ones will be embraced on the street style scene and even the red carpet, we're fully aware that some of them wouldn't fly in the real world. For example, extra-long sleeves aren't the most practical option for everyday activities like typing, eating, holding things (you get the picture). But there are trends each season that are much easier to wear than others, and we found them for you for the upcoming fall season. Not only are these six trends accessible, they're also going to be everywhere, given that they popped up in several designers' shows and retailers are stocking them with abandon. From a classic print that's back in full force to the coat style that everyone from Zara to Tibi is endorsing, these are the most accessible major trends of fall. Keep scrolling to see and shop them all! 


Western-inspired pieces can be as subtle or as literal as you'd like. Even just a Western-style blouse or suede jacket with a pair of jeans—or an accessory like a belt or boots—makes a stylish statement this season.

Models and street style stars alike love to wear a duster over everything from leggings to miniskirts. Follow their lead, as dusters make any outfit look so much cooler.

Moto boots are a no-fail way to add a punk edge (a major overlying theme this season) to any outfit. Try them in an unexpected way, like with a maxi dress.

Corduroy, along with velvet, is an all-important texture for fall. Pants or skirts in the cozy fabric paired with an oversized sweater is a perfect Love Story–esque fall look.

Whether in the form of a half-zip pullover or a top-to-bottom zipper situation, this sporty mock-neck top style is the perfect way to continue the athleisure trend into fall. Proof: These were all over the runways of Dior, J.W.Anderson, Lacoste, and 3.1 Phillip Lim, to name a few.
