Hot girl summer is evolving into pop star fall.
While it’s officially fall, we’re still slowly saying our goodbyes to summer weather here. If your wardrobe is due for a fall refresh, consider these timeless, spirited pieces that encourage dressing up, going out, and feeling joy that will also make the fall transition a little less painful. And for us shopaholics, there is no greater joy than walking into our favorite stores and feeling the rush of a new collection on the shelves. If that’s not reason enough to invest in a happy new wardrobe, what is?!
Below, Lincoln Center’s guide to fall 2021 fashion trends.
Mad for Plaid (skirts)
Pair plaid skirts with cable knit cardigans, fitted blazers, and turtlenecks for a sophisticated nod to back-to-school.
The perfect transitional piece, combining the relaxed ease and sporty-chic feel of a classic polo shirt with the cozy warmth of a knit. Wear tucked into your favorite high-waist jeans, with ankle boots and an oversized blazer. When it gets colder, there’s no need to swap it out for a chunkier knit; simply wear over a thermal turtleneck for an extra layer that isn’t too thick under your winter coat.
This fall, more is more and it applies to bags as well. It’s time to invest in bags that fit more than just a credit card and lip gloss.

An extra cozy, extra soft, fleecy or wool shacket isn’t just a super stylish, seasonally appropriate alternative to your summer denim jacket. It’s also all you’ll want to pull on for early morning walks and chilly commutes. A shot of color or fun pattern takes this simple staple (and your entire outfit) to the next level.
Yes! Leopard print is back on trend this fall/winter! Want to be on trend but don’t like leopard print too much? Accessorize with these Tom Ford sunglasses from Great Spectacles.
A super-long chain necklace will add an extra pop to your fall outfit.
Keep snug as a bug in oversized puffer coats that can be worn on the mountain, but look just as slick on city streets.
