It’s always hard for me to pick out my favorite trends for autumn because I love so many of them. But I’ve narrowed the list of AW22 trends down to the ones that I think are the most in-line with my style and wearable for everyone.
Just because these are going to be the upcoming AW22 trends doesn’t mean you have to go out and buy a bunch of new clothes. I usually have the items from my favorite trends in my closet already and just highlight them more during the season. If you do feel like buying something new for yourself, I always suggest checking out the secondhand options.
Sequins, fringe, beads, and feathers are usually reserved for holiday parties, but this year they’ll be worn all season long. This is the perfect time to work your holiday party pieces into your regular wardrobe. If you’re looking a more subtle way to wear this trend, pair an embellished top with jeans and a cool jacket. If you want to go bold, you can pair a beaded fringe dress with the leather trench and a tall boot.
Over The Knee Boots
Speaking of tall boots, over the knee boots are also on trend this season. To be fair, tall boots are always in during this season. However, instead of the standard slouchy suede knee high boots, opt for a more bold over the knee pair in an interesting texture or color.
Punk Meets Prep
I finally have an excuse to dig the Dr Martens that I’ve had since I was 14 out from the back of my closet.
This trend is all about mixing hard and soft elements. Mixing typical preppy pieces with punk elements creates an interesting juxtaposition. For the harder punk elements, consider combat boots, studs, leather accents, and tartan. For the softer preppy elements, consider loafers, white button downs, and messenger bags.
My favorite thing about dressing for fall and winter is outerwear. Statement coats are a great way to make an outfit more interesting, especially if you just wear all black in the cooler months. I personally love coats with interesting prints, like paisley or tiger, or unusual textures, like vinyl and faux fur.
Maxi dresses are a must for every season. For the cooler months, you have tons of options. If you want something a little more season-specific, opt for dresses in knits or dark florals. Or, you can just rewear a maxi dress you already have and throw a leather jacket on top of it. Everything is better with a leather jacket.
