Make the season’s standout looks your own.
All it takes is a glance at your social feed to see that street style is an influential part of the fashion landscape. And as tastemakers flock to the world’s style capitals for fashion week, the photographers who track them are capturing a full picture of what everyone will be wearing this fall. Here’s how to incorporate three of the season’s most important trends into your wardrobe.
The return of bold-shouldered tailoring echoes the power suits of the 1980s, but this fall’s best versions are just as easy to wear to brunch as they are to a boardroom meeting, partly because styling one has never been easier. This double-breasted suit is paired with a simple gray crewneck sweater and platform sandals, instead of the usual blouse and pumps.
In the case of this suit, a blend of wool and silk is woven into a twill that drapes beautifully. It’s formal without being stuffy, classic without being old-fashioned, and that means it can work for a variety of different purposes.

The last piece you put on should be the first one you think about. Instead of buying yet another coat, consider a cape. It’s easy to wear and plays nicely with a variety of looks. Maximalists love that these pieces almost sweep the ground as you walk by, but minimalists appreciate how easy it is to add one to almost any outfit.
To top it all, capes are incredibly practical: There’s serious warmth in a wool piece like this, and the strategically placed openings for arms mean that if you pair the look with an equally statement-making handbag, it’ll never be out of reach.
The mounds of clashing prints and embroidery we’ve seen in recent seasons makes ensembles comprised of one color stand out—and feel totally fresh this fall.
This is what it looks like when Millenial Pink grows up. A simple dress is made far more interesting by the addition of pleating along the skirt and sleeves, creating a slight peplum effect with a waist accented by goat hair. Then there’s a bodice featuring Bottega Veneta’s signature intrecciato weave. (It’s a feature prominently found in the house’s handbags, like the Lauren 1980 clutch, seen here in a similar pastel pink shade as the dress.)
