The summer sun may still be shining, but fall is ready to breeze onto the scene with its bounty of fresh finds. From wild prints to luxe streetwear, fashion shows its many faces this season. Where should you spend your dolla dolla bills this fall? A killer coat is a great place to start.
Whether you choose an oversized puffer à la Balenciaga or a bright leather trench like Céline’s cornflower blue version, a statement topper should top your must-haves list. After all, first impressions are everything. Street chic continues to reign on the sidewalk with slouchy hoodies, slogan tees and 90s-inspired accessories taking a walk around the block.
For those looking to show off their softer side, the latest dark romance looks featuring billowing sleeves and frills are guaranteed to make your heart race. Metallics are having a moment too. Silver and gold foil looks, ranging from trench coats to tricked-out gowns, will catapult your style game into a whole other universe.
When it comes to erogenous zones, designers aren’t shrugging off the exposed shoulders trend any time soon. A continuation from spring 2016, this chic look has street style star written all over it. And we can’t talk about star power without giving props to the Kardashians for (almost) single handedly bringing back the corset belt (Hello waist training). This fall, everything is cinched—all hail the hourglass.

Midriffs are still having a moment, thanks to ‘90s-inspired crop tops on the runways, but this season shoulders are head and shoulders above the rest. As the erogenous zone du jour, there isn’t a red carpet event or street style moment where shoulder-baring outfits are not present. Heck, there isn’t even a clothing store right now that doesn’t offer the style—so don’t store away this go-to summer piece just yet.
A continuation of spring 2016, shoulder-baring tops and dresses à la Jacquemus and Miu Miu float into fall alongside fresh, new takes like Moschino’s street-meets-chic layers. Move over, legs and side boobs. When it comes to making a strong, sexy statement, you have nothing on exposed shoulders. Nada.
