With the weather outside being pretty down right rotten today, I have been feeling all the autumnal vibes. Last night it was dark before nine, and the rain made it feel very much like summer had gone. Whilst I love summer, I have a thing about pre-fall and autumnal dressing. Long-time readers will know how much I rave about dressing for autumn and winter, so I feel like my pre-fall starts earlier every year. Often we do get some nicer weather in September, however I am starting to prepare for the pre-fall wardrobe. Not only am I planning to have a big old clear out this weekend of my wardrobe – I am trying to keep my eyes on pieces that are going to be on trend this pre-fall. So I thought I would share some pre-fall fashion trends that will be one to look at in the shops both high street and high end.
Knits are always a keep component to an autumn wardrobe, and getting your hands on them early is never a bad thing. The modern knit trend started to creep in stores like Zara last year. However this trend shows how knits don’t need to conform to the stereotypical knit. No boring cardigans or pieces that look 70 years old. Modern knits include bold colours, sleek designs and close knitted patterns.
As mentioned by Who What Wear the dubbed revenge heel is the perfect shoe choice for those meals out, drinks with the girls, or looking your absolutely finest. The pointed toe and slightly lower than normal heel will make the stylish but more comfortable than the average stiletto.
I have my eyes on a set from 4th & Reckless, but comfy pjs that you can also style for everyday wear outside are creeping into stores. Think office chic but reminiscing on WFH life. The pandemic changed work wear for good and now we can look smart and be comfortable in the office – especially on those cosy pre-fall days.
Masculine dressing is nothing new in the world of womenswear. But with comfort still being a key part in fashion after the pandemic, slouchy suits are a great formal option for a more relaxed feel and fit. The boyfriend style fit will be key in this trend, with neutral colours being included too.
Something that summer has bought us, and will continue to be with us in pre-fall are the cut out pieces. From dresses, tops, swimwear, to jeans, this trend is very jacquemus but not always with the high end price tag. This trend is definitely an option for ‘out-out’ wear as well as a causal gathering.
Move over dad sandals. Introducing the Dad Loafers. Clunky, chunky but the perfect accessory to an outfit you want a smart edge on. Also practical for the wetter weather without having to compromise on the style. Brown loafers are also dominating the classic black for more of an autumnal feel.
