We recently highlighted some of the key trends that will enter the sartorial spotlight in the coming months. Well, we thought it could be fun to expand on the list with insights from another fashion person as well. That’s right—we tapped Bloomingdale’s Women’s RTW Fashion Director, Arielle Siboni, to share the trends she thinks we’ll all want to wear next year. Her point of view is particularly intriguing to us given that it’s her literal job to identify trends and guide fashion direction for one of the largest department stores out there.

The trends she’s into run the gamut, but all share similar qualities in that they’re all extremely wearable and could be mixed and matched to work within a range of wardrobes. We’re talking about everything from cozy pieces to wear at home to chic footwear styles that could become go-to’s.

What’s great about knit pieces is that they work just as well in a set as they do on their own.” — Siboni
