Lust for leather and swoon for sweaters: Trends we love for Fall


The leaves are starting to turn colors here in NYC, which of course also means its time to revamp your Fall wardrobe to stay looking hot in the cooler weather. Two trends for this season that we love at FashionEdits are leather and sweaters. Check out how to rock the latest looks this Fall.

The jacket: A staple in every girl’s wardrobe (Fall or not) should be the quintessential black leather jacket. Nothing says chic like throwing a leather jacket over a pair of skinny jeans and flowy top or even pair with a short dress and leggings. To take your look to the next level this season we suggest that you opt for a mixed fabrication leather jacket. Our editor’s pick is leather with ponyhair.

The pants: Slip into a pair of leather pants to feel extra sleek this season. The trick with leather pants is to make sure that they aren’t too tight or too loose, so when choosing a pair err on the side of caution and go for the pair with a little bit of give.

The vest: If you’re into the leather trend but you don’t want to fully commit then sport a leather vest for just the right amount of the trend without going leather overboard. When it comes to the leather vest it’s better to skip black and go for a chocolate brown or cognac.

The style: To nail the perfect sweater look this season, remember baggier is better. Oversized and super-comfy sweaters are all the rage this Fall. Consider it a throwback to the 90’s grunge era and Keri Russell’s style on Felicity.

The statement sweater: Deck out your sweaters this year with cool graphics, quotes, sequins, and cool designs. Some of the latest looks for sweaters feature animals from horses, dogs, tigers, wolves, owls, and cats while others rock Kermit the Frog, fuzzy fabrications, prints, and patterns.
