If you want to know what everyone will be wearing this season, this is your one-stop shop for the top Fall trends. We covered all the shows from New York, London, Milan, and Paris during Fashion Week last February, and our FabSugarTV host Allison McNamara showed you some of our favorite looks via must-watch videos. Now, it's time for the complete recap. It's bound to be a sexy season, with a distinct naughty vs. nice theme running through thanks the boudoir, fetishist, and ladylike trends that dominated the runways. You'll want to show some skin, albeit under a black sheer top trimmed in lace or covered in dots; you'll want to invest in something in velvet; and there was never a better time to wear polka dots. The glamour and boho chicness of the '70s stays strong through Fall, with colorful furs and flowy maxi dresses. If you're about to start planning your Fall wardrobe, click here first to make sure you're covering all the most important points for Fall.
This breed of Fall jewelry makes true of the sentiment: the bigger, the better. Statement necklaces are all about bold color combinations, mixed metals, and major beads and embellishment. What we love about them is their ability to instantly transform, glamorize, and dress up our look; and, they look just as amazing with a white t-shirt as they do with our most elegant evening wear. The bonus? These editor's picks do all of that for less than $100. Click through to shop our 15 favorite statement necklaces to style up your standout looks.
If you thought we seemed a little blue here, it's because we've had denim on the brain at Fab. With Fall upon us, we want to make sure you're prepped with the cooler season's must-have staple. From how to choose the best jeans for your body type, to exclusive styling tips from our favorite denim designers, click through to get caught up on our Fall denim coverage now.
It's Fall shoe time! As we (slowly) pack away our warm-weather wardrobe to make room for Fall jackets, pants, and dresses, we're taking inventory of our shoe artillery. Fall trends call upon textural booties, luxe loafers, velvet pumps, and rich jewel-toned colors, so instead of stressing out about which to buy, we gathered our top 25 pairs — from all price points — for you to shop. Here are our three important shoe-shopping tips:
- Invest in a pair of standout booties this Fall. Wear them alone with skirts and dresses during the transitional months, then layered with thick tights and warm sweaters come colder temperatures.
- Dressy loafers are a functional and comfortable way to stay chic this season.
- Experiment with velvet; this luxe textile adds instant dimension to any look.

It's a very ladylike way to add sparkle to your outfit: show it on a sharp collar. Found in the Fall '11 collections from Givenchy, Miu Miu, and Valentino, the look is surprising versatile and definitely statement-making. Emma Watson paired the collar with a sequin jacket in her most recent editorial for i-D mag, and Hailee Steinfeld looked adorable in a beaded sheath at a Miu Miu party. While a pearl-embellished top from Valentino is available now ($1,090), we expect it will be a short matter of time before this trend pops up in more affordable versions. Wear it on its own, with the blouse tucked into slim trousers or a pencil skirt for a polished look. For a more offbeat approach (the way we would do it!), layer it under a crew-neck sweater or sweatshirt, skinny jeans, and oxfords for a back-to-school look that is totally cute and unexpected.
Our Summer days are spent almost exclusively in breezy lighter fabrics — and lots and lots of white. We used to wait anxiously to throw our Summer-exclusive whites on right at Memorial Day and make the most of all our favorite pieces before September. Of course, rules like that don't really apply anymore — who says you can't rock white jeans after Labor Day? We're firm believers that they look chic all year round, almost doubly chic layered up with the right pieces. In fact, there's a place for all your white staples long after the dog days of Summer are over. If you've ever doubted your LWD's autumn potential, or how you might style your creamy white maxi up for colder weather — click through to see and shop our styling solutions.
Chunkier soles have been on our radar since Spring's '70s trend, which brought out an onslaught of flatforms, platforms, and clogs. Now, we're turning our attention to chunkier soles on our pumps, loafers, and sandals to live out the rest of our Summer days and stomp right into Fall in style. We're not only obsessed with the nod to retro-cool they inspire, we're also pretty keen on the support they provide; a thicker sole and platform means more comfort for our tootsies — and we love it when fashion meets function. The extra bonus? This batch is loaded strictly with neutrals — so each investment is guaranteed to complement any stylish whim. Click through to shop the 10 pairs we're loving right now.
