While we love the Victorian and military trends, we can’t say that we’re going to want to spend extended periods of time wearing them, per se. Luckily, there are a number of fall trends that are surprisingly comfortable, wearable, and chic. We’re even getting a few travel-outfit ideas out of our research. So if cosy knits and furry accessories sound like your kind of gear, you’ve come to the right place!
Scroll down to see the most comfortable F/W 15 trends, and to shop our favourite pieces to get the look!
The outerwear trend of the year is most certainly the duster. As seen on almost every runway, from Lanvin to Balmain, colourful dusters give a polished feel to even your most casual duds.
Soft, richly coloured velvet is going to be everywhere this fall. The plushest of fabrics not only keeps you warm, it also looks lovely (especially for a night out!) and is incredibly soft.

This statement accessory has been embraced by a number of designers—Prabal Gurung, Michael Kors, and Jason Wu, to name a few. We love the look of a brightly coloured stole, especially paired with a camel coat.
Loose and flowing is the name of the game when it comes to bohemian styles. In keeping with the unstoppable ’70s trend, this carefree feminine look is perfect for those transitional fall days.
The difference between the knitwear this fall and every other season is that it’s transitioning from just sweaters to full-on knit outfits. We think the comfort factor of that speaks for itself.

Wearing pajamas outside is now cool. As seen on the F/W 15 runways of Derek Lam and Sonia Rykiel, these separates are at their best when paired with structured accessories and outerwear, for obvious reasons.
Simple, unfussy looks are always a good comfortable option, in that they don’t involve constricting shapes and accessories. Just throw it on and go is the mantra when it comes to minimalism.
