Fall is in the air! It’s finally time to kick off those wedges and put on your velvet knee-high boots for the season. Here is your official guide to this season’s hottest trends and how to shop them ethically.


PC: Everlane


Like poppies in spring or Santa Claus in winter, red can be worn year-round. This fall, red is popping up as the number one color on the runway—from Fendi to Givenchy. You can shop the trend at Everlane with this Silk Square Shirt for $88.

Vintage Furs

Just like leather, fur is a controversial material in the fashion industry. With a rise in popularity of furs this fall, it’s important to shop them as ethically as possible. One of the best ways to do this is by shopping consignment or faux fur. You can do both by getting this Sunset Faux Fur Coat from Three Pigs Vintage for $89.

70s Plaid

#TBT to the 1970s with this fun trend. Plaid is back in a big way—from pants to tops to coats, this pattern can be seen all over the runway this season. Get in on the style with these “Miriam Checked Trousers” from People Tree for $139.




I’m personally so excited that this trend has stuck around for another year. Velvet is such a fun (and cozy) material to wear all fall and winter long. My favorite velvet piece of the moment? This “Velvet Underground Set” from YSTR for $298.


PC: Rent the Runway


Add some sparkle to your wardrobe with one of fall’s latest trends—glitter. Although this trend runs the risk of looking like a disco ball, do it right and you’ll be the star of the night. You can get the look with this secondhand Badgley Mischka “Tina Jumpsuit” for $75.


PC: Reformation


Like your favorite piece of jewelry, gold is all the rage this season. It’s that perfect fall/winter color that keeps you from wearing too much black. Get the “Larson Dress” from Reformation today for $178 and have your go-to party dress all season long.
