It’s never been easier to stay on top of the latest trends this fall, as the world of fashion is currently being fueled by the four Fs: fringe, florals, fur and fire engine red.

As seen on the runways of New York Fashion Week, designers are returning to retro styles, blending elements that marked prior decades, while adding their unique modern touches. High-end labels like Versace, Alexander McQueen, Givenchy and Stella McCartney are once again setting the tone for emerging styles this season, but keeping your closet up to date doesn’t necessarily have to break the bank.


The midwestern-esque trend that made its big runway debut in the early summer months isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Embraced by top designers and discount brands alike, the flouncy fringe look can now be seen on clothing, shoes, jewelry, handbags and more.


Though flowers are no longer in bloom, bring a touch of spring to the season with what the industry is calling “couch florals.” Reminiscent of grandma’s favorite futon, these prints are popping up in more than just thrift shops.


Functional and fashionable, fur garments are the perfect way to keep warm during those chilly autumn nights. If you opt for a cruelty-free lifestyle, faux fur is just as stylish an alternative.

Fire Engine Red

‘Tis the season to craft a wardrobe that matches the changing leaves on the trees. Past years have been dominated by demure, neutral tones, but 2017 is the year of bold blends of colors, particularly vibrant shades of red.
