Runway Report: The Top 5 Fall Wardrobe Must-Haves
It's an exciting season for fashion with bold colours, textures and prints, and thanks to the slouchy fit of the season, it's never been easier to look great while maxing out on comfort.
Here are our top five essential picks to update your wardrobe this fall:
This look can be super casual, thanks to the sweatshirt fabric and fit, but embellishments also kick it up into office-friendly territory. We loved the look at 3.1 Phillip Lim (above) and Kenzo. With sequins, grommets, and lace, the sweatshirt has never been more chic.
#2 THE MOTORCYCLE JACKET
Every once in a while a true classic becomes a seasonal must-have and, lucky for us, the moto jacket is back with a vengeance. Look for soft worn leathers and bold finishes like chunky zippers and grommets to give this look the punk edge it deserves. The runways of Saint Laurent and Rodarte did it best.
#3 THE PRINTED DRESS
Print mixing is a major look for fall and there's no easier way to join in on the fun than with a bold dress. From plaid and houndstooth to floral and stripes we saw prints mixed and matched in blocks and colours, as well as all over patterns. Designers like Peter Pilotto and Miu Miu showed how easily one single dress can capture the entire clashing trend.

Forget trim fitted coats and slip into a slouchier look this season. Michael Kors and Stella McCartney both indulged in this oversized look, each showing how it can be slung over equally bulky suits or in juxtaposition to sleek feminine shapes underneath.
#5 THE FLARED SKIRT
Whether it flips at the hem in a feminine flute or is full all-around with a retro appeal, pencil skirts have officially given way to the flirtier flared skirt. From Prada to Céline, it was the exemplary silhouette. And best of all? It's super flattering on every body type.
Have your say! Which trend are you excited to try this fall?
