Blame it on Burberry F/W 14, but the blanket coat is everywhere for fall. Lucky for us, it also happens to be the coziest trend of the season.
Your trusty pointed ankle boots are certainly still serviceable, but the freshest boots for fall have a ‘60s-inspired feel. Think: a short, chunky heel and slightly rounded toe.
Saint Laurent Glitter-Finished Leather Ankle Boots ($1,145)
The work-approved trouser was constantly spotted outside the shows this season. Tip: As the weather gets cooler, wear them with tall boots like Pernille Teisbaek did below.
The It-designer of the moment? Marques Almeida. His signature look? Frayed denim. Front-row regulars can’t get enough of the look, and neither can we.

Besides the fact that it looks incredible in photos, fringe instantly makes your look feel just plain fun. Whether you opt for a western or more bohemian iteration, you can’t go wrong with our favourite accent for fall.

Michael by Michael Kors Fringed Pussy-Bow Silk Blouse ($225)
When it comes to amusing accessories, it doesn’t get better than a furry clutch. Bonus: It doubles as a pillow in a pinch.
The fact that knits are in for cold weather isn’t exactly groundbreaking. But the concept of pairing knits together for the fashion world’s version of a comfy tracksuit? Kind of revolutionary.
Band of Outsiders Ruched Miniskirt ($495)
When it comes to fall bags, the tinier the better. Tip: Hold your purse by the mini handles, or else it will look like just another cross-body bag.
Sophie Hulme Leather Mini Box Tote ($675)
Red is the colour of the season. Our favourite way to wear it? A dramatic coat, which will make a major impact in a sea of black and grey outerwear.
Without a doubt, the slit skirt is the most alluring trend to make the list. We recommend the thigh-baring look for your next girls’ night out.
Form-fitting pants still have their place, but the relaxed look of a slouchier style feels much more current. Tip: Balance out volume on the bottom with a tissue-thin turtleneck.
