From the first fully digital Haute Couture fashion shows to the pieces trending all across Zara and H&M, there’s a lot to take inspiration from for your fall and winter wardrobe. 

Don’t be afraid to experiment with some unique pieces to add some newness to your everyday outfits. Along with the right accessories you can put together cohesive outfits that fit your personal style.

Keep these trends in mind and take inspiration from them while you shop (hopefully online) to prepare for this fall and winter. 

1. Sweater vest

Sweater vests are a trend you’ll see all over your Instagram feed. They’re versatile and can be styled on top of t-shirts, shirts, blouses, and even dresses. 

Layering different fabrics is a great way to keep your outfits interesting and to keep yourself warm in the chilly winters.

The trendiest way to style your sweater vest is to wear it on top of an oversized white collared shirt, a white skater skirt, a cozy pair of socks, and sneakers.

2. Dark washed jeans

Denim is a classic trend that is here to stay. While light washed jeans are perfect for the summers, investing in a pair of dark washed jeans might be a good idea to add to the darker aesthetic of the winters. 

Pair them with your favorite sweater and some ballet flats for the perfect everyday outfit.

3. Trench coats

The iconic Burberry trench coat has been a fall fashion staple since forever and can be seen on almost every celebrity.

This trend will stay popular even in 2021 and to achieve the chic Sherlock Holmes look, you don’t need to spend thousands of dollars.

You can find a comfortable oversized beige trench coat at any store and add it to your outfit to achieve that “model off duty” look.

4. Dress pants

While jeans are perfect for a casual look, a good pair of dress pants can elevate any outfit and make it look more put together.

Find a pair of dress pants that fits you perfectly in any of the fall colors and style it with a blouse along with a comfortable pair of heels for a more professional look or style them with a basic white T-shirt, a belt, and sneakers for a more casual look.

5. Shoulder bags

Shoulder bags have been a popular fashion trend this year. Investing in a snake or alligator patterned Baguette bag in brown or beige would be a good idea, especially for the fall. 

You can easily find these at thrift stores, which would be great both for your wallet and the environment.

The right bag can make any outfit look more put together and well thought out.

6. Knitwear

Turns out our grandmothers wore right about this one all along. Knitwear pieces are going to be all the rage this fall and winter.

Anything from knitted dresses, sweaters, cardigans, and even coordinated knitted sets would make for the most comfortable and easy to style pieces in your wardrobe.

Some fashion trends can be a little over the top for most people, which is why it’s a relief to see such a wearable trend.

7. Flat boots

While knee high heeled boots were very popular last year, flat Chunky Chelsea boots are the trend for this winter. They’re comfortable and can be easily styled with any outfit.

Wear these with your dark washed jeans and a sweater vest on top of a shirt to achieve that casual chic look or dress them up by styling them with a knitted dress.

8. Fur detailed coats

A simple coat with fur on the collars is perfect to add some chicness to all your winter outfits. 

9. Beaded bags

The classic Flapper bags from the 1920s are going to make a comeback in 2021. 

While shoulder bags are a perfect addition to casual daily outfits, beaded bags can add some extra bling for special occasions.

10. Quilted clothes

You can get anything from a quilted jacket to a quilted skirt to achieve a “straight off the runway” look. 

Even though trends are a great way to find inspiration for your outfits and to bring a new aesthetic to your wardrobe with every season, it’s also important to keep in mind that trends come and go while your personal style stays and gives you confidence. So while you have fun with these Fall and Winter trends, don’t forget to stay true to your unique style.
