Being the fashionistas we are, we constantly keep up with what’s walking down the runway. This year, some of our favorite styles are here to stay – and we get to add a few new trends to the mix.

Our go-to sources: Vogue, Elle Magazine, Glamour Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar, InStyle, Marie Claire agree: these are the best of the best for the current fall and upcoming winter seasons.

Cozy Up

Longline Jackets

Longline jackets, in military green and in military style, blazers and trench coats are some of the season’s hottest outerwear. Blazers got an upgrade with a longer and leaner silhouette than in years past, leaving you both work and casual-wear ready.
          

Chunky Knits

Cozy up in your comfiest sweater this season and pair it with a leaner silhouette on your bottom half; think leggings, miniskirt, or leather pants.
               

Shearling

Whether you live in a climate with sub 30 weather or not, shearling (in the form of jackets, vests, coats, etc) are a go-to outerwear for the upcoming months. And shoutout to Fall 2014 for bringing this trend to the forefront of fashion last year.
               

Capes

Ah, the trend that just won’t go away. While not a look for everyone, we tip our hat to the woman that can pull this look off. Works beautifully in place of a jacket on milder days or before the chill sets in.
               

Single and Ready to Mingle

Here are some of the statement colors getting the most love on the runways and in our closets this FW15/16 season.

Cream

Winter white gets a little more decadent this season as its creamier hue is in the spotlight. Sweaters, coats, even entire ensembles with the right details (think great jewelry and shoes) will do the trick.
              

Black

While black never goes out of style, head-to-toe black has been in and out of pop culture – but since it goes with everything, we are definitely not complaining. Iconic and slimming, we can’t wait to rock this look.
                 

Red

Of the singular color trends of the year, red is definitely taking center stage. Whether you use it as a killer statement piece or are bold enough to make it your entire ensemble, we hope this trend is here to stay!

Neon

In what can only be seen as an homage to the eighties, neon is one of the hottest trends, both on the high fashion and athleisure (which is also a fall/winter trend) front. Paired with black, stark white, gunmetal, navy, and camel this trend gets an sophisticated upgrade. We’re loving the influence that the athleisure trend has had, and neon is predicted to be prevalent throughout the SS16 seasons as well.
                      

PS: We wrote an article covering athleisure style for you in case you’re not a gym rat. Check it out here.

Bold Patterns/Graphics

While not necessarily a single solid color trend, bold patterns and graphics are becoming regulars on the runway, combining both monochrome and vivid color. Like red, wear as a statement piece or combine patterns for an entire ensemble.
              

Brown

This color is anything but drab this season. Easily warm it up with maroon or copper. Might we recommend multiple statement pieces? This nod to the 70’s works in multiple shades. Try shoes, coats, pants…you get the idea.
            

Which leads us to –>  That 70’s Show

Bohemian

Boho is a go! This trend has made its rounds in the past few years, but makes another comeback for the colder seasons. Longline cardigans, ponchos, suede, and fringe are easy to find and easy to wear all fall and winter long.
                  

Flares

Give your skinny jeans a night off and work flared jeans or pants this fall. Perfect the elongated leg look with wedges or high heels.
          

Winter Florals

Winter florals call for jewel tones, pale paisley, gray and bright/neon combo. Wear them with winter-weather fabrics like suede or wool to keep them from seeming too SS16.
                         

Hosiery/Lingerie

While we love the chic look of black stockings, get playful with the colors and patterns of hosiery to choose from this season. Lingerie (think slip dresses, peekaboo bralettes, saucy cutouts) also made statements on the runway that can easily be applied to your fall/winter wardrobe.

 

Statement Earrings

According to Glamour Magazine, the statement earrings are the chicest way to accessorize this season. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
