From florals to feathers: The key styles you need to get your fall wardrobe on-trend
Stylist Liv Judd shares her must-haves for autumn
Cooler temperatures have arrived and it's time to start thinking about your fall wardrobe. This season is full of unexpected hues along with some fresh takes on some classic patterns. Fashion and beauty expert Liv Judd stopped by The Goods to share the must-have looks for fall and the trends that are worth your attention. Liv loves the blend of minimalism and opulence from the fall runways, and has pulled together some must-have looks to suit every taste.
Optimism and futurism have been key to this year's fall runway. Shimmer and shine – especially silver – are everywhere this season. But a little bit of shimmer is not just for night, it can be day appropriate too! Metallics are considered the new neutral and therefore no longer just for cocktail dresses. This trend definitely makes a strong statement – but you don't need to shine from head to toe! If you think this look is a little too loud for your taste but want to add a flash of shine to your outfit, step into this trend with a shimmering shoe instead.
Floral patterns are moving into fall, and aren't just for spring or summer anymore. Embroidered patterning on clothes is also very popular this season. Opt for dark moody florals, or even delicate patterns. Chic details like this will take your styling to the next level. This tunic dress works great as a cocktail piece and can be paired with a dark or thick tight for extra warmth. For day, try pairing it with with jeans and an oversized top. And if you aren't ready to fully commit to this fall floral trend, opt for a shoe like this one that incorporates a floral embroidery on the heel.
As usual, we're seeing a lot of plaid for fall – but this season plaids are re-emerging from the 1970s. Navy and white are classics together, and super easy to wear. The oversized interwoven print on this skirt works with the straight, simple lines on the shirt. Add a pop of green with an accessory like a handbag to complement the navy and you'll look balanced and fresh.
Birds of a feather
Feathers are big this year. Plumes are showing up in cocktail dresses, coats, and vests – and it's a playful accent to add to your wardrobe. This feathered vest adds a touch of 1940s glam to an otherwise basic outfit. White is the way to work this trend, and we're seeing a lot of shoes coming out with plumage as well. This is more of an evening look because feathers really make a statement. Keep the colours of your outfit light like this one to keep you looking fresh in the darker seasons. A word of warning: this definitely isn't a look for the washing machine, so be sure to opt for dry cleaning for all of your feathered pieces.
We're seeing lots of cheeky slogans and messaging on tees, shoes and bags this season. It's a playful way to make your voice heard through your everyday wardrobe. Your statement can be paired with structured items like a great military jacket or a crisp pant in order to dress up your look.
Lady in red
Red is the colour of the season, and everyone can rock this powerful shade. For a real statement, try a monochromatic red outfit, but feel free to mix up the shades of red. Not everything has to match exactly.
