Leopard print

leopard print trend



"I'm starting to realize that basically everything I've bought so far for fall is leopard print. It's just the easiest way to make whatever else you're wearing feel a little more exciting and fresh at the moment." — Allyson Payer, editor

Warm tones

"Nothing puts me in the fall mood quite like the rich, jeweled, warm tones of autumn. I can't wait to wear these rust and spicy hues in luxurious and soft textures." — Judith Jones, managing editor, merchandising

Puff sleeves

puffy sleeves trend



"Since I'm convinced I really belong in the movie Pride and Prejudice, a romantic puff sleeve speaks to me. Since I don't want to come off as too fussy, my take is to style the trend with more relaxed pieces like jeans or sneakers." — Aemilia Madden, editor


Polka dots

"I'd never turn down a pretty polka-dot print. It's definitely timeless—and a Princess Diana staple—but it can also feel super fresh if done the right way." — Erin Fitzpatrick, senior news editor

Button details

"Right now I'm taking cues from the '90s when fashion was minimal but had a modern look to it. Nothing says this more than pieces with clean lines and small details (like button-front pieces) that are really classic and will never go out of style." — Kristen Nichols, associate editor

Midi skirts

midi skirt trend



"Midi skirts are honestly a staple in my wardrobe year-round. My love for them runs deep thanks to their extreme versatility. As someone who lives in NYC, I'm always looking for pieces that I can easily dress up and down, and midi skirts are the perfect fall item to pair with boots, sneakers, and heels. A home run if you ask me" — Lauren Eggertsen, fashion editor


Fall florals

fall florals trend



"Since fall florals tend to be an everlasting trend that we've seen emerge year after year, I'm only paying attention to darker, moodier florals to pull them off in a very 'fall 2018' way." — Anna LaPlaca, assistant editor

Paper-bag waist pants

"A gathered waist has never looked chicer. I'm so committed to the trend that I wrote an entire post tracking the trend's emergence." — Kat Collings, editor in chief

Square necklines

"Square necklines lend a flattering, fresh, and French-inspired look for fall. I personally can't wait to wear the trend with my vintage jeans and cool fall boots." — Michelle Scanga, managing editor
