It’s officially fall. You may be disappointed to see the summer go, but on the bright side with fall comes fall fashion. So, start making room in your closet for these fall staples: cashmere, wool, riding boots, chunky knits, scarves and lots of hats!
In addition to these must-haves, there are a few as-seen-on-the-runway pieces I’m excited to try and some I haven’t yet decided if I’m willing to introduce into my closet just yet. Think feathers, whimsical prints, tomboy-inspired and everything in between.
NOTA BENE: I’d like to note that navy was a huge trend in fall/winter couture, but don’t really know if it should be considered a trend really. Navy is everywhere, yes. But, as it should be. It is a staple (at least in my closest it is), replacing black whenever possible.
Here are four fall/winter trends. Which are you looking forward to trying and which need to go away before they start?

Reminiscent of YSL from years ago,this winter suiting takes on a masculine, almost boyfriend-borrowed worthy appeal. Also seen on the Hermès and
Even a trend that’s spreading to bridal couture, capes are back in a big way. No longer just for Little Red, and with or without a hood, you may have spotted the coveted cape on several F/W 2014 catwalks from Valentino to Dolce & Gabbana.
