What You Need In Your Closet This Fall
Despite fashion moving faster than ever, it seems trend cycles are slowing down. When we first took in the FW17 collections five months ago, we took note of a number of trends extending their stay: velvet, metallics and Victorian collars to name a few. We also saw seasonal classics — like plaid prints and belted coats — spun anew, like dark florals scattered on everything from jumpsuits to oversized puffer jackets and shearling lining not only coats but bucket hats.
Now that fall is just 43 days away (or so the Gregorian calendar says), it’s time to decide what you’ll need in your closet. Below we break down twelve pieces – some of which you probably already own – that we guarantee you’ll be reaching for all season long. These may be staples you know, but here’s how to make them fresh for the new season.
This luxe fabric has crossed the line from trend to timeless. This season, try it in a new hue like rich gold; to really kick it up a notch, try styling velvet head-to-toe.
This flattering skirt hemmed at the calf has proven to be the length of choice by many designers – Loewe, No.21, and Rachel Comey to name a few. Try a satin sheen this fall, which can be kept casual or easily dressed up for a evening out.
The classic-for-good-reason trench hit the fall runways in just about every collection and just about every fabric. With so many ways to wear the style – cinched, left open, loosely buckled – you’d be crazy not to own one. Go for this long, soft suede one by Ryan Roche to keep things extra toasty this fall.
From full length peacoats to wide leg trousers, the FW17 collections were overflowing with chocolatey hues. Anywhere you would normally wear black — like these to-die-for statement pumps — sub in brown for a modern look.
Designers are offering everything from full length trenches to two piece suits in retro-revival corduroy. These Lykke Wullf overalls keep things classic with their ‘70s-inspired patch pockets, yet modern with their wide crop leg.
When you hear plaid you typically think the perfect piece for woodsy adventures. But this season, it’s all about transcending this standard into a new light. This Assembly shirt does just that with its optional belt giving it a totally romantic silhouette.
This season there are more ways to protect your head from the cold or hide those bad hair days than a beanie. Try something new like this fitted cap made from Japanese selvedge denim.

Designers whipped up full metallic looks from slouchy sequin dresses to the shiniest bomber jacket we’ve ever seen. If space age silver isn’t your thing, try an unexpected metallic like this lime CAB Collection bag.
Designers presented the pantsuit in a panoply of silhouettes. There were Hillary Clinton-inspired tailored suits, sport-like looks and even pajama-esque silk numbers. For a casual take, pair this Rachel Comey jacket with with matching pants and bam – no office job required.
Just because summer is over doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to flowers. Fall florals appeared throughout collections adding an eye-catching quality to simple silhouettes. These Nomia brocade pants are bound to turn heads.
Refine your outerwear this season with a waist-cinching style. The belted coat, like this edgy wool coat by Cosette, provides not only a flattering silhouette but a way to keep the heat in close.
We fell for full neck coverage in spring with ruffled collars, mock necks and bandanas galore, and are still just as smitten. With a focus on Victorian-inspired collars, FW17 collections were filled with this fancy turtleneck. Give it a try in this ruffled white dress by Kahle.
