They’re Back: 4 Fall Trends to Keep From Last Year

These four fall trends? They once ruled wardrobes. And this season, they’re sure to reign supreme again. Take notes, then shop away.


1. Studs
The epitome of edge, these little metal grommets adorn everything from bags to shoes to shirts. Keep the rest of your accessories simple, though, so they’re front and center.

2. Capes
From short and sweet to sweeping and mysterious (we’re talking floor-length), this romantic topper is back at it. Just pair with opera-length gloves à la Mary-Kate Olsen if it gets super chilly.

3. Colorblocking
Having evolved from the in-your-face color palette of seasons past – ahem, neon – the new colorblocking is more neutral. Try a burgundy or emerald with a subdued hue for fall.

4. Cobalt
We’ve seen its brightening powers before, and it’s the same thing this time. Bold. Vivid. And gorgeous. This color will liven up all of fall’s neutrals in an unexpected way.

Our Ah, Fall: Women’s Cool-Weather Style Boutique opens Sunday, September 23, at 11AM ET.
