Fall 2018 Trends: Oversized Coats, Animal Print and More

      When you live in Chicago and have four seasons (more like two actually, temperature-wise it feels more like three months of summer and nine months of winter here!), you end up having more clothes than you can actually fit in your closet. Long story short, September is approaching pretty quickly, so we are happy to announce it’s time to shop for fall. Personally, I can’t wait to embrace the art of layering, especially since it seems this time around trends are heavily inspired by the 80’s. If you are a girl always on the hunt for trends like I am, you will probably find more plaid, animal print, statement coats, velvet and lace, bustier dresses and cozy oversized sweaters in your wardrobe this season.

           Here are some fall outfits to give you some shopping inspiration!

Staple Pieces Everyone Needs to Have in Their Closet
          Oversized coats. Simply put, the most versatile and transitional staple piece that one can own. The best part is that you can pull it off with anything and it works for any occasion. But if you were to ask me this season’s style recipe, I would say here are the ingredients: a classic black coat, a colorful coat to add interest to all of your looks, and a plaid coat, which is definitely the most sought after trend for Fall 2018. Here are some options for you to shop: The Date Night Blazer, Don’t Sugarcoat it Longline Coat, Lily Knit Back Midi Coat, Mural Blazer Midi Coat, Feutre Coat, Lapels Structured Coat, Unstructured Wool-Blend Coat.
Most Favorite Looks with Animal Print Pieces
       Animal print. This fall, get excited for animal prints to make a comeback, with everything from  leopard to snakeskin gracing the runway. If you ask me, it almost feels like it hasn’t been gone for that long. If you are going for more of a luxurious look or if you are trying to hit the high-charts with killer street style, then it’s a great idea to mix in some color and give some space to let the animal print take center stage by keeping it simple in the accessories department. Get inspired by these pieces: Perfect Pair Oblong Bandana, Kate Leopard Coat, Leopard Chevron Sweater, Foldover Calf Hair Clutch, X Revolve Delaney Duster, X Revolve Bada Bodysuit, Pant 88.
Must Have Oversized Sweaters for This Fall Season

        Cozy sweaters. Aren’t you happy these never seem to go out of style? The coziest part of the fall season is big, comfy oversized knit sweaters. Just one con worth mentioning: the room they take up in your closet and drawers. But you know yourself that it’s worth it. Every time I’m pursuing a stylish or classic look, I go for cream, black and white colored sweaters. For something fun and maybe more casual, I pick one of my bright colored or patterned sweaters. Shop some options here: GCDS Logo Sweater, East Coast Wrap Sweater, Softly Structured Tunic, Jill Sweater, Twister Sweater, Patterned Top, Rib-Knit Sweater, Cora Sweater.


Let the fall shopping begin.
