8 fall trends to try now
Get a head start on the new season’s hottest styles
The newest season is set to take over next month, but if you’re one of those people who just can’t bear to wait, we’re letting you cheat a bit. Get a head start on fall’s hottest trends – all from the spring/summer racks. We show you how.
'60s shift dress
The dropping temperature didn’t stop Louis Vuitton, Saint Laurent and DSquared2 from hitching up those hemlines – and it shouldn’t stop you either. The A-line mini dress from the ’60s made its comeback; switch seamlessly from the warm summer to the cool fall with its colour-blocked avatar.

A staple through the seasons, monochrome isn’t going anywhere. After dominating the racks at Ralph Lauren and Alexander Wang in spring/summer, black-and-white got edgier in lined, curved and zigzag versions at Balmain and Bottega Veneta. Give classic monochrome this cool new twist before anyone else does.

Leather was crafted into a host of inspired styles for fall – we spotted ruffled skirts at Guy Laroche, luxe dresses at Lanvin and pastel-hued capes, courtesy Tod’s. Make the style your own with a simple but classic dress in faux leather – it makes for the ideal material in this transitional season.
