Fall is here, and the change of season means it’s time for a fashion refresh. But don’t go thinking you need a whole new wardrobe for the months ahead: With strategic new purchases, you can make an entire closet feel brand new. And who better to look to than some of the biggest trendsetting celebrities of the moment?
Over the past few weeks, A-listers have been hitting the streets in a variety of new style propositions. From what’s new in the world of outerwear to the must-have accessories (including shoes and bags), these trending pieces are a surefire way to infuse your existing clothes with a brand-new spirit. Below, the five new trends to know.
A polished blazer is a fall staple—but this year it seems the boxier the better. Inspired by the sharp shoulder pads of the ’80s, these new fits bring a more graphic touch to the office and can also be styled with jeans on the weekend. The key to pulling it off is pairing it with more streamlined pieces, like skinny trousers or simple, unadorned sweaters. The trend has been worn by Kaia Gerber, Tessa Thompson, and Emily Ratajkowski, who offset her oversized fit with a chic belt for a more casual feel.
2. Chunky Shoes
Fall boots are never not going to be in fashion, but the new footwear look is all about a hefty base: thick lug soles on chunky combat boots instantly add edge to any ensemble and look especially good with casual jeans, as sported by Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, and Jennifer Lopez. These stylish stars have worn both high-end and affordable versions, with the classic Dr. Martens a recurring favorite.
The maxiskirt may seem like more of a summery piece, but stars have been transitioning the boho-chic item to the cooler months. The secret? Pairing it with sharp outerwear. Jennifer Lawrence wore hers with a sleek moto jacket; Priyanka Chopra chose a dressy blazer; and even a royal such as Kate Middleton has done it for evening, opting for a series of flowy, romantic gowns.
