The F/W 15 runways were chock-full of trends, from the still-going-strong '70s wave to the rise of boldly mixing and matching prints, textures, and fabrics. But what's really going to take off this fall, in the closets of the editors, bloggers, street style stars, and celebrities we so admire?
We decided to ask an expert to find out which fall items every fashion girl is going to love this autumn. Our resident stylist, Marissa Webb, tackled the topic with aplomb and came up with a strong list of the eight items that we'll all be seeing everywhere when the leaves turn.
"There are many new trends to try out this fall," Webb told us. "But it's really about finding the ones that are a good fit for you."
Wise words! Keep scrolling to shop the eight items every fashion girl will obsess over this fall!
Tops are getting slimmer and smaller in order to pair with the new slouchy, wider proportion in skirts and pants. A cropped top that hits just above the fitted waist is a key item now and going into fall.

The wide-leg pant, in both trousers and denim, is an important silhouette.
Alice and Olivia High Waist Double Pleat Pants ($286) in Black

Reach for a structured bag in place of a slouchy one. Even though on their own they can feel a bit serious, paired with easy denim or your casual day look, they add a fun juxtaposition.

Building Block Green Cylinder Duffel Bag ($795)
Chloé Drew Medium Textured-Leather Shoulder Bag ($1920)
Menswear-inspired outerwear creates a nice contrast to flowy bottoms.

We'll be back to the two-piece suit for day or night. Don’t think of it as only officewear! Use the proportions and the accessories you mix it with to turn a classic suit into a modern fashion statement.

Banana Republic Drapey Tie-Front Pant, Footpath Grey ($89)
