New for Fall

Trend 1: Maxi Belts


Belts went super-size this season, almost doubling in width from last season. These belts are a fun, pocket-friendly way to update your fall wardrobe and give you that very “cinched-in”, super-feminine look that flatters all figures and gives the illusion of a waist.

Ann Taylor wide braided belt, white, $39.99 down from $49.50 (a further 40% reduction is possible if you sign up to get a code on site)

Fashion Simple Solid Bow Waist Belt, OASAP, $9.24, down from $13.20

Prada Black Saffiano wide leather belt, Bluefly, $289.59 (39% off retail) with an additional 10% off with the code TAKE10, bringing it to $260.63.

ASOS wide leather belt with metal detail,, $26.

Trend 2: Capes and Ponchos


This trend has been all over the catwalks this season, and come fall/winter 2015, we’ll be seeing them all over the streets as well. The trick to wearing these with style is to match their copious volume with slim-fitting black trousers or cigarette jeans.

MiH Jeans Cream Wool Stripe Blanket Wrap, Avenue32, $485.

J.Crew Cape Jacket,, $250.

Ganni Ballet Knit Cardigan,, $171.99, down from $230.

Santiago Tassle Blanket Poncho, The Dreslyn, $550, but reduced to $467.50 with the code AUGUST15.

Trend 3: Pleats Please


Pleats are a big Fall/Winter 15 trend, and whether you choose them wide or narrow, they never fail to be tremendously flattering. Wear them with simple white blouses for maximum effect.

Zig-zag pleated gray and white midi skirt, Banana Republic, $49.97 down from $110.

Objects Without Meaning Cecile Pleated Pant,, $167.99 down from $395 in the final sale.

Shaina Mote Garendo Culotte Short, The Dreslyn, $260, down from $325.

Trend 4: Ribbed Sweaters


The most on-trend sweaters for fall 2015 will be ribbed, in soft fall colors like nude, dusty sky blue, pink, gray, and taupe. Wear with a long, close-fitting or button-down skirt in black or a pair of faux leather jeggings to achieve that optimal, slimming balance between the larger textures and volumes on top, and the more streamlined shape below.

LE MONT ST. MICHEL Pullover Rib Sweater, Stevan Alan, $217, down from $435.

BLK DNM Sweater 32, The Dreslyn, $225, reduced to $191.25 with the code AUGUST15.

STEVEN ALAN Beardsley Sweater, Stevan Alan, $130, down from $325.

Trend 5: Sports Utility Luxe


This is a trend where the world of sports and utility wear (sports clothes, overalls, uniforms) meets the high-end world of luxe fashion, resulting in relaxed jumpsuits, sporty block prints, apron-style skirts and dresses, and overalls-style clothing reinterpreted with luxurious, silky fabrics and exquisite cuts. Wear with a pair of killer high heels to introduce an element of visual surprise and to keep the look ultra feminine.

Shaina Mote Kei Skirt, The Dreslyn, $255, reduced to $216.75 with the code AUGUST15

Farrow Haikou Jumpsuit,, $69.99, down from $88.

Shaina Mote Calla Top, The Dreslyn, $330, reduced to $280.50 with the code AUGUST15

Sleeveless Colorblock Lyndon Dress, Rodale’s, $59.99 down from $190 (final sale).

Green jumpsuit, Banana Republic, $130.

Trend 6: Faux Fur


Go big or go home with the biggest, fluffiest winter jackets in faux furs and shearling this winter. Not only are they cosy, but they make a huge fashion statement, and says to the world, “I am fun and fearless and yes, cruelty-free!”

Grey leather-look faux fur biker jacket, River Island, $130.

Mid-Length Brown Faux Fur Vest, Chicwish.dom, $42.42, 15% off retail.

Zadig & Voltaire Faux Fur Jacket, Nordstrom’s, $498.

Smythe ‘Mongolian’ Faux Fur Coat, Nordstrom’s, $595.

1 Patti

I love the wide belts and pleated skirts – yes, together, too! thanks for this round-up. It’s still blazing hot here but I love to browse ahead. xo

2 Claire Vukcevic

Thanks, Patti! Yes, it’s always fun to shop ahead 🙂 Although we’ve been having such terrible weather in Ireland this summer that I might as well be dressing in Fall clothes right now!

3 Alisa Gannon

I am absolutely loving the wraps, ponchos and long cardigans with skinny pants!

4 Claire Vukcevic

Me too, Alisa – and they are so forgiving 🙂

5 Elaine

Me too Alisa. As the weather cools I’ll be in my closet restyling some of the wraps, capes and ponchos I already own.

6 Greetje

I went through the sale items in The Netherlands. And all I could think of was : “oh that is true, I have something like this in my closet”. Terribly confronting. But it helped me to leave a lot and buy something I did not have yet.. a good wrap dress.
