While we’re still in the early stages of fall, several street style trends have emerged and taken hold. We paid close attention to who wore what during fashion month, and there seems to be a clear consensus on five must-have essentials for this season.
Fashion-show attendees couldn’t wait to pull out their cozy knits, especially long, ankle-grazing maxidresses. From New York City to Paris, we saw it all: rainbow crochet frocks, minimalist-approved sheaths, and peekaboo and midriff-baring designs. In the same comfy vein, constricting skinny jeans were MIA—oversized, baggy silhouettes reigned supreme. Those loose-fitting denim pieces paired well with everything, from turtlenecks to zip-up jackets to (another uber-popular trend) tuxedo vests.
Take a closer look at all of the coveted street style trends below. And don’t forget to shop out your favorites before it’s too late.
What’s the easiest way to give last season’s jackets and blazers a 2021 makeover? Sport them with a head-turning pair of pants. From painted to patchwork designs, street style stars have all seemed to join the statement-trouser movement.
