As winter rolls on, the fashion universe has begun to spin its own narrative for the possibilities that lie ahead. Hopeful that we can rebound from a year full of loungewear, we’ve tuned into the fall 2021 collections—the third official fashion week, set in the virtual world—to pore over the trends for fashion's favorite season. Some of the usual suspects are back (we're looking at you, denim), but fierce leopard coats, luxe laces, and sultry blush tones are just some of the fall trends you can start getting amped up about right now.
This preppy classic has peppered the runways in seasons past—but this year, sweater vests are casting an even wider net. There were deconstructed versions at 3.1 Phillip Lim (shown left), layering MVPs at Staud, and perfectly oversized iterations at Apiece Apart.
This season, designers are styling their denim pieces from head to toe. A full Canadian tuxedo, boot included, walked the runways at Victoria Beckham (shown left), while Alberta Ferretti opted for a relaxed denim 'fit in a worn blue jean hue.
Pretty pink hues took over soft satin separates at Fendi (shown left), adorned puffers as evening attire at Nanushka, and found a home on blush-toned baby doll dresses at Self Portrait.
Delicate fabrics are on the mind again, bolstered by lace waist bands at Gabriela Hearst (shown left), lace button-down dresses at DSquared, and intricate head-to-toe lace silhouettes at Valentino.
Dramatic knits satisfied the need for a warm hug at Khaite, got the layered treatment at The Row (shown left), and juxtaposed floor-grazing trousers at JW Anderson.
