A virtual New York Fashion Week marks the beginning of another Fashion Month. Even though the shows look a little different this year, there’s still joy to be found in the sartorial season. For one, breaking out your favorite fall sweaters or boots begins the wardrobe shift from summer. But there are many ways to feel inspired when it comes to getting dressed this fall, whether it’s taking cues from celebrity style, from a movie or show you’ve watched during quarantine, or simply leaning into the fall 2020 fashion trends we saw on the runways earlier this year.
Now that the collections have started to hit stores, many of our favorite pieces keep comfort, sustainability, and personal safety top of mind. There’s patchwork outerwear and blanket dressing, which offer a warm and comfy take on stay home style, and there are less-cozy, but equally compelling trends, like skirt suit tailoring and the supermodel-approved leather blazer. When it comes to accessories, one editor is converting summer sandals into fall footwear with the addition of a pair of socks, while others are choosing to add elevated loafers or chunky, no-nonsense boots to their wardrobes this fall.
