Summer days drifting away mean that autumn is on the horizon and the September issue is out for delivery. Join us as we lust over the hottest 2017 fall fashion trends in anticipation of the most stylish time of the year.
2017 Fall Fashion Trends to Try Now
Ready for some shopping inspiration? Take a sneak peek at what’s in store:
V-shaped necklines and plunge-front tops are so yesterday. This fall, look for necklines to take the high road with Victorian collars and mock turtlenecks. These sophisticated designs are refreshingly modest and work-appropriate, and they give a nod to vintage styling. Eyelet cutouts, frilly lace, ruffled sweaters, and drop-waist dresses balance this sophisticated style with plenty of feminine charm.
Summer was all about off-the-shoulder necklines, and autumn is keeping the trend alive by putting shoulders on full display. Stock up on cold-shoulder cutouts and slouchy knits that reveal a hint of décolletage.

Summertime flowers can bloom again next year. This fall, floral prints take a walk on the dark side with distinctly moody hues. Wear two prints together for a non-garden-variety effect, or wear them with autumn basics for a fresh alternative to fallen leaves.
Continue summer’s bohemian leanings with the help of patchwork prints. These creative and artsy patterns dominated fall runways and offer a homespun look and feel.
Fall and winter have always embraced a wide range of textiles and textures, and this season is no different. From faux fur and plush velvet to upgraded classics like corduroy and tweed, these fabrics add visual interest to any ensemble. Drape yourself in satin sheen, or create a fall uniform out of faux versions of leather, suede, and shearling.
Give your fall wardrobe a little shimmer and shine with the help of modern metallics. Inspired by Art Deco elements, this lustrous trend offers an ornate complement to cozy knits and fitted blazers. Go bold with silver and rose gold sequins, or keep it simple with understated metallic pieces that offer year-round versatility.
Move over, pumpkin spice. Whether you prefer rich shades of wine or the zest of vermillion, this season is all about painting the town red for a change. This hot hue plays nice with autumn’s signature color palette and traditional earth tones.
Style is all about finishing touches and small details — and embroidery is the perfect way to upgrade your everyday look. This dainty accent speaks volumes by taking tried-and-true closet staples to a chic new level.
This season’s denim is big on distressed hems and patches. Look for jean skirts with raw edges, or try high-rise jeans with frayed step hems that highlight your favorite ankle boots and pumps.
Fight wardrobe “fatigue” with a print that commands attention. Camouflage is everywhere this fall (and funnily enough, it doesn’t blend into the background). Pair this pattern with your fall neutrals, or give it a fresh makeover with the help of florals, plaids, and metallics.
From balloon sleeves to flared hemlines, this season is all about playful proportions. Give your 9-to-5 style a modern update with the help of a button-down blouse with bell sleeves, or swap your fitted trench for a slouchy wrap coat that’s cinched at the waist. These voluminous designs elevate your fall basics with ease, and they help you stand out from the crowd with surprisingly flattering profiles.
