5 Street Style Trends for Fall 2021 to Shop Now

While we’re still in the early stages of fall, several street style trends have emerged and taken hold. We paid close attention to who wore what during fashion month, and there seems to be a clear consensus on five must-have essentials for this season.

Fashion show attendees couldn’t wait to pull out their cozy knits, especially long, ankle-grazing maxi dresses. From New York City to Paris, we saw it all: rainbow crochet frocks, minimalist-approved sheaths, as well as peek-a-boo and midriff-baring designs. In the same comfy vein, constricting skinny jeans were M.I.A.—oversized, baggy silhouettes reigned supreme. Those loose-fitting denim pieces paired well with everything, from turtlenecks to zip-up jackets to (another uber-popular trend) tuxedo vests.

Take a closer look at all of the coveted street style trends below. And don’t forget to shop out your favorites before it’s too late.

Power Pants

What’s the easiest way to give last season’s jackets and blazers a 2021 makeover? To sport them with a head-turning pair of pants. From painted to patchworked designs, street style stars have seemed to all join the statement trouser movement.

Knit Dresses

Even if you’re no longer staying home all day wrapped up in a blanket, that doesn’t mean you can’t recreate the cozy moment. These knit dresses are just as pleasant to wear but offer an elevated finish that will bring in several compliments.

Baggy Jeans

Give your legs some wiggle room with this fall by securing a billowing pair of jeans. Style tip: Look for shapes with tapered ankles or roll the hem for a polished, instead of slouchy, finish.

Fall Minis

If you haven’t already jumped on board with the micro mini skirt trend, now’s the time. The transitional weather means that there’s still plenty of time to get a few more wears out of those summer minis. A tailored blazer, knit cardigan, or color-blocked parka will instantly turn them into seasonally appropriate items.
