Although it’s still the middle of summer, designs for fall have emerged on the shelves and are now ready to pick up! In addition to the continued love for tongue-in-cheek graphic tees, statement sleeves and wide-leg pants, this season sees the revival of polka dots and gray suits. Colors also get brighter with the arrival of dusty pink, sand yellow and denim blue. Here are the biggest fall fashion trends to look for:
The fashion world isn’t tired of statement sleeves yet. Shifting from the earlier bell-sleeves to this summer’s tie-sleeves, the latest trend involves cinching at the shoulders and cuffs to create a cute balloon silhouette. Keep the rest of your outfit simple and fitted to let the puff sleeves speak for themselves.
Fueled by nostalgia for the 90s, polka dots are on puff-sleeve blouses and wide-leg pants this fall. Colors span from the classic black-and-white to bolder red-and-white and the more refreshing blue-and-white. Create a prairie look by wearing a polka-dot blouse with wide-leg jeans. Finish with sandals and a raffia hat or bag.
Striped Wide-Leg Pants
The breezy blue-and-white vertical stripes that are trending this summer now come in more dynamic primary colors. Opt for high-waist striped culottes featuring a tonal waist sash. Pair with a fitted mock-neck crop top to play with color and proportion.
Tees embossed with slogans, cartoon characters or kitschy graphics are a firm favorite for young Koreans. Go for a simple Mickey Mouse tee, or one printed with a metallic logo or iridescent typography.
Skirts with cutout hems or a wrap-front create visual interest by adding dimension. Pair an asymmetric-hem denim or corduroy skirt with a kitschy tee and you’re ready to rock the streets!
A gray glen check suit jacket and matching high-waisted shorts will go far this fall! The monochrome palette makes you look taller. Layer the set over a chiffon camisole, and switch to long pants when it gets colder. If you find jackets too sturdy for your liking, replace with a matching cardigan or chiffon kimono jacket.
