Styling your wardrobe for a new season can be quite a task and can be more so when there’s no proper structure to it. One thing you can always count on from the runway shows is endless style inspiration with accompanying themes which you can transpose in real time to curate your wardrobe.
The fall ’20 runway did not come up short as it came with an array of looks and trends. We have managed to narrow these down to 9 key themes to guide you with shopping and styling your wardrobe for this season
The 70’s is a style decade that gives on giving, its yearly rotation in the fall runway collections is a testament to that. This season, it is making a re- appearance with fringe, 70’s inspired prints and stack shoes. This trend is for the ultimate free spirit who can get away with throwing on multiple style elements.
Go for a colour pop with Red
Fall is usually synonymous with colours like Burgundy, dark Orange tones and Beiges. However, this season designers lit the runway up with fiery red. It is definitely a refreshing addition to liven up your wardrobe for the dreary cold days ahead. A plus is you can rework these pieces for the yuletide season *wink*

What’s Autumn with out moody blooms
Very much like Spring, Fall is known for it’s dark take on florals. take the dark route by styling the look with edgy accessories. Medieval inspired snoods were also big on the runway this season, its the perfect addition to a dark floral look
Grown up preppy
The first time I saw Dior’s fall 2020 collection, Gossip girl came to mind. The 2000’s hit tv show on teenagers living in the upper east side attending fancy prep schools, remember?. Well the Runway took a huge chunk of inspiration from much younger years in school to make wearable clothes for adults. Throw on a classic cut blazer with a pleated skirt, penny loafers, and a pussy bow blouse for an adult look.
Wear your intimates out
If there’s one way to cling on to memories of Summer this is it. Think lace, sheer pieces…underwear as outerwear, it is the perfect opportunity to show some skin before temperatures drop any further. Go for a juxtaposing look by toughening up the look with edgy accessories and this seasons famous combat boots.
Checkmate in Plaid
If there’s one trend that would always make a comeback its the classic check. It can come off a bit serious and dated, throw on a pair of straight leg jeans and sneaks for a current and fun look.
