As “fashion month” comes to close and runway shows begin to wind down, we’re left with no shortage of stylish inspiration from this season’s upcoming trends. However, now that our Instagram feeds are no longer overloaded with couture-clad models, we’re left with the same reoccurring frustration as last season – exactly how are we supposed to wear these? Have no fear, trendsetters. We teamed up with the footwear experts at BOGS Footwear to compile five of our favorite trends you’ll be able to steal straight from the runway and wear on all of your fall excursions.
Fall Destination: Haunted House
Trend to Try: Lady Danger
Sexy, sleek and incredibly mysterious. Mix your darkest textures, like a tweed jacket and an A-line leather skirt, for a shadowy statement. Add in lacy feminine accents and a pair of black tights with leather riding boots.
Fall Destination: Fall Film Festival
Trend to Try: Arty Eccentric
Create the perfect combination of bohemian whimsy and no-nonsense elegance with a look that’s never afraid to make a bold statement. The more layers, the better, so indulge in the more impactful pieces. A fur overcoat with leather details, a bold pair of colorful tights and plaid lace-up booties will do the trick.
Fall Destination: Apple Orchard
Trend to Try: Urban Nomad
At the intersection of functional and fabulous is the sweet spot for neutral-toned luxury. For a look that oozes that “I don’t care about anyone’s opinion but my own” attitude, keep things simple and to-the-point with sharp details and ultra-tailored lines. Offset a clean-cut pair of cropped pants with an oversized blazer and black ankle booties.
Fall Destination: Wine Vineyard
Trend to Try: Geek Chic
Intelligence is sexy, so make sure your fall wardrobe translates your smarter traits. For the over-opinionated sophisticate, throw it back to your schoolgirl days with a pleated checkered mini, crisp white button-down and brown boots. Don’t forget an oversized sweater and a pair of knee-highs for a serious dose of prep-school chicness. Oh, and obviously some smart tortoise frames.
Fall Destination: Fall Carnival
Trend to Try: Beauty Queen
Playful, pretty and perfectly poised. For a youthful look that’s as smart as it is precious, layer on pastel hues and flirty fabrics, like wool-blended skirts and plush overcoats. Pair brightly colored rain boots with an ostrich-embossed leather bag and white textured tights for an innocent, ladylike touch.
