Fall is upon us, and even though it may not feel like it in Florida quite yet, we still intend to fully embrace fall fashion trends in a way that fits into our warm weather lifestyle. From the runways of fashion month to social media to the window displays in the District, fall outfit inspiration is all around us. There’s no right and wrong when it comes to dressing for this season, as neutrals, namely beige, grey, black and brown, are in, while metallics and bold pops of color are equally as coveted. While we love to channel the effortless, minimalist aesthetic, we won’t be shying away from color or chrome to spice up our looks. Read below for the top 6 fall fashion trends to wear in Florida, for outfits that look as cool as they feel.
Metallics are having a moment right now — with men and women alike rocking silver and chrome styles, from their bags and shoes down to their nail polish. Be it Tom Ford’s metallic coated jeans, to Bottega Veneta’s silver Cassette bag, to Prada’s silver slingbacks, there are endless ways to incorporate this show-stopping trend into your everyday fall wardrobe. Shop these must-have accessories in the District.
While there may be debate around this topic, for us knee-high boots have always been, and will always be, in style. One style that has been practically jumping off the shelves and into our closets is Givenchy’s Shark Lock Boots. Whether you want a staple or a statement, they’ve got you covered with many colors to choose from. And if you’re worried about the heat, simply pair these with a mini skirt and a flowy top and you’ve got a fall fashion look perfect for Florida. Shop these eye-catching boots at 102 NE 39th St.
Midi & Maxi Skirts
Just because midi and maxi skirts are in, doesn’t mean mini skirts are out. However, we highly recommend mixing in longer skirts to add some dimension and intrigue to your outfits this season. Try a black, silk midi skirt from Reformation or Yves Saint Laurent, or a long denim skirt from Ganni, paired with a pair of knee-high boots (trust us on this one). If you’re feeling extra adventurous, you can even style one of these skirts with a pair of Isabel Marant cowboy boots for a chic, western flare. Don’t shy away from denim on denim looks either, it’s all fair game this fall. Shop these looks and more in the District.
This season, we’re utilizing all elements of the three piece suit, by wearing vests as tops, blazers with shorts and trousers with sneakers. Throwing on a slouchy trouser with a neutral short sleeved tee or tank top is the perfect way to always look effortlessly chic, whether you’re headed to the office, to class or just to grab a coffee. There are countless ways to mix and match the elements of a three piece suit, and we found some of our favorites at Miu Miu. Try a new silhouette with their cropped grain de poudre jacket, or rock their oversized velour blazer with a mini skirt and pointed heels to make it business chic. Shop these pieces and more at 190 NE 39th St.
Whether it be boots, loafers or heels, it’s all about the platform. From Chanel’s timeless loafers, offered in a trendy beige and a sleek black, to Versace’s double platform satin pumps, embrace feeling tall this fall. Since you can pair a platform with just about anything, consider them an essential addition to your closet. Shop these styles at the Prada and Chanel flagship stores in the District.
The rise of soft utility as a trend has yet to see a downtick, and will likely only continue to surge in popularity. Parachute pants and loose-fitting cargos are a comfortable alternative that can elevate your look to ultimate street-style status. Try a leather iteration from Alice + Olivia, or the Re-Nylon pair from Prada. Wear these with a white baby tee and a crossbody bag for a sporty chic look, or with an oversized blazer and heels for a dressed-up dinner outfit. Shop these pieces and more in the District.
