Autumn comes each year, and this year feeling good in what we wear perhaps may be even more necessary. Whether our work asks of us to do so remotely or we are back at the office meeting and working with people face-to-face, the workload looks a bit different, asks of each of us to tend to additional and/or new responsibilities, so once the workday begins, we need to feel confident in what we are wearing.
I will admit, I have not done as much seasonal shopping for the autumn season, and my budget has been saved because of it, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have my eyes on a handful of items to welcome into my capsule for the fall season. For example, I love the skirt-suit trend this season, and could use a couple of additional pencil skirts, and a good quilted coat for walking the dogs and looking stylish will always catch my attention. Sweaters as well, if I see a boat-neck or an oversized yummy sweater, on my shopping list it goes.
The fall collections when they debuted last February and March went on per usual; however in the midst of Milan’s schedule, crowds were eliminated, and this energy was felt in Paris. Keeping in mind that the collections were created pre-Covid19, I still feel many trends work well with what we are seeking this season – comfort, classics – dependability, rich textures and warmth.
Each year with TSLL’s Fall and Spring Shopping Guide I share with you trends worth investing in, so while I won’t be sharing with you or shopping the fringe trend that was definitely on display throughout the entire fashion month (check out Prada’s fringe here and Oscar de la Renta’s below), it is still a beautiful trend; however, I am not confident you will want to invest as it likely won’t be wearable for multiple seasons without looking dated.
Below I have gathered up runway looks for NINE Trends Worth Investing In. Along with these nine trends, you will notice a handful of trusted go-to trends returned to the runway, and I highly recommend shopping these as well: Grays, Navy, Camel, Leopard, longer lengths and many asymmetrical and off-the-shoulder designs (the latter two, less confidently, but they were seen in multiple collections).
Many collections as a whole captured my ahh and attention. Just about any piece from these collections would be a dream to have in the closet and wear for the autumn season. I have included two such collections below. Check out all of my picks for NYC, Milan, London and Paris by clicking on the respective city name. I will collect my favorites for the upcoming Spring 2021 collections as well on Pinterest, so be sure to follow me – @simplyluxurious if you are curious who will be presenting a collection (the shows will go on, but with fewer designers) and what the new trends will be.
