It's been an unconventional year for the industry. Not only has the fashion week calendar been turned on its head, but more and more designers are also deviating from the typical seasonal cycle. While a lot of things have changed in the fashion scene, my excitement for checking out what's next on the runways has not. After a year of wearing and talking about practical, cozy things, my eyes are more than ready to feast on anything that doesn't involve a pair of sweats

With the fall collections still trickling in, my mind has already shifted to thinking about the trends and outfits that will be big in the months ahead. One of my favorite things to do as a fashion editor is to bookmark looks from the shows and re-create them with pieces already in my closet or on the market. Call it early, but it feels like getting a leg up before they officially explode.

Today, I'm presenting six fall looks that I've been constantly referencing as of late. It may seem a little hasty to be thinking about fall so soon, but trust me—it's only a matter of time before these trends make their way all over your feed. Keep scrolling to see them all and to shop each outfit.

Marques’Almeida Look 1

This summer is all about the corset, but if the fall runways are any indication, we'll be wearing them solidly into the fall, too. Designer interpretations of the style err on the side of delicate colors with bold structural details. Although you may have to wait until this romantic corset from Marques’Almeida hits stores, you can borrow from the label's runway styling and pair one with tonally coordinating pants for a similar take.

ACNE Studios Look 24

ACNE's latest ready-to-wear show is a sea of soothing neutrals and ditsy floral prints, so it really felt like a statement when this electrifying red, green, and orange outfit appeared on the runway seemingly out of nowhere. The unexpected mix of colors is immediately eye-catching, and while color-blocking has long been a thing, the coordination of these particular colors feels fresh. It's like a palette of shades fit for a traffic light, so I've already informally dubbed this "red light, green light" color-blocking.

Balenciaga Look 38

Presented in December 2020, Demna Gvasalia's F/W Balenciaga show predicted two trends we've been seeing a lot of lately: the oversize button-down and baggy jeans. Of the collection's 50 looks, this one immediately jumped out to me because of its wearability and ease. Of course, there are a few elements that feel uniquely Balenciaga—such as the exposed camo-print distressing and fluffy cat-eye sunglasses—but the rest is surprisingly easy to re-create with a few staple pieces you probably already own.

Coperni Look 8

French fashion brand Coperni does the '90s minimalism look better than most, so it didn't surprise me when this crisp all-white suit popped up during its show in March. Each season, there's typically a suiting moment everyone becomes fixated on, and for me, this one is it. It's not dramatic by any means, but the palette of refreshing whites and flattering, simplistic design is part of its appeal. Coperni's protruded-shoulder blazer is quite unique, so while I wait for its release, I'm settling for white suiting in loose silhouettes.

The Row Look 24

Who What Wear readers will be very familiar with this combo of tailored separates. Although relatively simple, this button-down-and-trousers outfit has been blowing up among the fashion set (as we've documented here). Well, meet the autumn interpretation, as shown in The Row's F/W 21 collection. Instead of a white shirt and blouse, this look borrows the same styling with black separates. It's a subtle twist but is equally as chic.

Dion Lee Look 10

Per usual, everything from Dion Lee's latest collection has already made its way to my fall wish list. I'm a sucker for neutral monochromatic outfits, and the brand featured them a ton with shades of sea-moss green and muted periwinkle. While those certainly grabbed my attention, I immediately felt the need to re-create this look comprised of a layered bodysuit with color-blocked jeans for myself. Layered-detail tops have been a micro-trend on the rise, so if this outfit is any sign, it's in for a big boom come fall.
