We are well into fall, and we all know what that means: It’s time to break out the old, dusty bins full of wool clothing to warm up during the cold days. It’s also time, though, for a good bout of shopping!  While summer is a wonderful time, it’s hard to beat the crisp autumn weather. No matter how much you love warm weather, the thought of wrapping yourself up in a chunky sweater and swapping out your summer sandals for a pair of leather boots is a welcome thought. 

The fall trends of 2022 are making their way into magazines, runways, and everyday life quickly. Let’s see what this fall has to offer. 


1) Knee-High Boots 

While considered a classic fall trend, knee-high boots are making a comeback this fall. Everyone can find their perfect black boots this fall. Stiletto heel, pointy toe, chunky heel, asymmetrical design—regardless of what the boot looks like, they’re coming back thanks to their warmth in the cold weather. 

Wonderful, beautiful knee-high boots:

DSW’s Vince Camuto Dentelia Boot

Zappo’s Franco Sarto Tribute

Steve Madden’s Ally Black Leather


2) Power Suits 

You can go for a particularly fitting suit, or you can go for a massively oversized suit. Either way, everyone can find their perfect business suit this fall. Power suits elevate everyone’s style very easily. Even better, they match!

Some powerful suits:

Banana Republic’s Sculpted Suit Blazer, Saba Bow-Neck Blouse, and Slim Flat Front Chino

Express’s Peak Label Double Breasted Blazer

Everlane’s ’80s Italian Wool Blazer


3) Oversized Button-Ups

Button-ups are a fashion constant, but this year it’s a little more throw-it-on-on-the-way-out-the-door. It’s oversized, it’s bulky, it’s from the men’s section. Pair them with a pair of jeans, and you have a great outfit. No fancy pieces required. 

Classic button-ups:

Abercrombie’s Oversized Poplin Button-Up Shirt

Mango’s Oversize Cotton Shirt

Everlane’s Silky Cotton Relaxed Shirt


4) Corset Waists 

Comfortable and concealing pieces were a major hit for the last two years. Everyone was comfy in their home with their sweats on during the pandemic. Now that everyone’s out and about again, though, waists are the hit. Corset waists are a great way to add a little something to your outfit while still wearing simple pieces. 

Some awesome pieces:

Abercrombie’s Long-Sleeve Hook and Eye Shirt

Revolve’s Leia Corset

Eloquii’s Corset Top


5) Cargo Bottoms 

Another classic item coming back into style, especially in khaki color. (Shout out to Dua Lipa for going out and about in cargo bottoms and sparking this trend!) 

Very stylish cargo bottoms:

Nordstrom’s The Detail Cargo Pant

PacSun’s Olive Utility Slim Cargo Comfort Stretch Pants

Kohl’s Women’s INTEMPO Cargo Jogger Pants


6) The Maxi Skirt 

A true classic, but one cannot ever go wrong with a maxi skirt. Layer with tights or leggings, pair with a good boot (maybe even a knee-high boot that’s also coming back into style), throw on your favorite baby tee, and you have a classic fall outfit. 

Cute, fun maxi skirts:

Nordstrom’s Sadie Asymmetric Tiered Linen & Cotton Maxi Skirt

Old Navy’s Tiered Button-Front Maxi Skirt

Banana Republic’s Midi Slip Skirt
