7 things you NEED to know for FW16
Here's the thing: we just can’t believe it’s AUGUST! But while it seems like summer's dashing off quicker than an Olympic sprinter, we’re the first to admit: we’re excited! Excited for dark mornings? Let's not go that far. Excited for a new season to start? You betcha! With fall tapping its feet impatiently in the wings, we're thinking about our FW16 wardrobes…
We've put together a hot list for this season's swag, so you can check off all the big trends every fashion-smart chick needs to know about for September.
Metallic skirt $16, marl sweater $5.50
Bomber jacket $6
Head-to-toe cosmetic colors
We are majorly obsessed with this look. It’s all about layering up similar shades to create a gorgeously monochromatic vibe. The powdery colors look positively angelic together, so we like to contrast them with tough, sporty separates like bomber jackets, heavy knits, and joggers. Rather keep the halo? Mix in fluid culottes and pleated skirts to accent the softness.
Cobalt parka $29
Olive parka $35
Next up: we’re giving a shout-out to the parka as your must-have coverup for cooler temps. We’ve upgraded ours with bold colors and removable faux fur trim around snuggly cocooning hoods. Want to go the more classic route? We have more trad olive picks, too!
Gray metallic sweater $12
Knit bomber jacket $18
Important news, peeps: metallics are here to stay. The last quarter of the year signals shimmer and shine to the max. From Bowie inspirations to Studio 54 glam, there’s no shortage of metallic gleam. While we transition, keep it low-key with one of our gorgeous metallic knits. Available in a huge range of styles, you can even grab one of fall’s key pieces in metallic: the bomber jacket.
Long-line bomber jacket $26
Long-line hoodie $12
Another hot list star is the long-line shape. We’ve reimagined functional bomber jackets in longer lengths for extra coverage, and made sportswear even more tempting too: longline hoodies? The stuff of sports-luxe dreams!
If there's one thing we're totally down with, it’s feeling forever comfy while maintaining maximum chic. Lucky for us, pajama style does just that. We are SO into this loungewear-meets-streetwear trend: it's the perfect balance between #OOTD and #IWokeUpLikeThis! Slip into this beautiful look with fluid button-front shirts with contrast piping, and chilled-out pants in matching fabrics or prints. For the ultimate lazy fashionista, this jumpsuit is basically a chic onesie!
Cold-shoulder top $9
Checked shirt $9
We know, we know: we've already mentioned how important this peek-a-boo detail is – but it isn’t going anywhere soon, so get yours while they’re still super-hot product! With everything from chic dresses to sleek knitwear, and dressy shirts getting an attitude makeover, dipping your toes in this trend won’t mean compromising your personal style.
The checked shirt
Whether you toss it around your waist grunge-style or just wear it with jeans, the checked shirt's collegiate look and feel is one of fall's big do's. Try wearing it under your fave pinafore top for extra style cred.
