Ordinarily, there’s a gradual return to normalcy in the days that follow a chaotic, jam-packed fashion month in New York, London, Paris, and Milan. After catching up on sleep, editors return to the workplace to dissect the trends and map out coverage for the fall season. Of course, this season was a bit different. With stay-at-home orders issued on the tail end of the Paris collections, there was no embrace of colleagues returning from their whirlwind time abroad. Instead, we reflected on the fall 2020 trends via Zoom. In our respective homes, we discussed our favorite collections, the pieces worth investing in, and the essential items to have for the colder months ahead. Here’s what we came up with.

 

fall fashion trends

 

Heavy Metal

This fall, metallics offer a spirited new way to illuminate the season’s cozy knits and knee-high leather boots, with suitable options for both work and play. Understated shimmering pinstripes covered blazers at Versace, while high-shine silver button-downs kept their cool

 

 

Sequined Stretch Jersey Dress

 

This year might be almost over (how?!), and while a majority of us might not have dressed up a ton—for obvious reasons—there’s still time yet! These 2020 fashion trends are still very much happening, and with the last four months of the year, why not liven up your wardrobe a bit? You can even wear these styles into 2021 and beyond since fashion seems pretty much seasonless now anyway? From fuzzy fur coats and cozy cardigans to pastels and fun checked prints, there’s something on this list for everyone.
