Fall fashion typically goes hand in hand with chic practicality — think cozy knits, classic outerwear and understated accessories. This season offered a departure from that notion in the best possible way. Here are the top trends to consider for your closet as the weather cools.

    Your go-to neutral is the latest to get an outrageous makeover thanks to designers like Tom Ford and Adam Selman. Mix and match prints with abandon — the brighter the better.

    Patchwork

    This fall, cozy up to ’70s-meets-pioneer-woman knitwear. Opt for pieces with a patchwork of patterns and fabrics — from shearling to chiffon — and layer. If it looks like high-fashion DIY, that’s a good thing.

    Leather

    Fashion took itself far less seriously this fall. The exception to the rule? Leather — in notice-me shades of burgundy, navy and black — emerged as the ultimate power-dressing staple, complete with ruching, knotting and fiercely flouncy sleeves.

    Iridescent

    Outerwear gets an iridescent upgrade. For max impact, pair your trench with an equally eye-catching dress, like the ’80s-inspired pieces at Maryam Nassir Zadeh. Baby step: Test the shimmery waters with opalescent accessories.

    Tweed

    The ladylike staple has long had a prim and proper reputation — until now, thanks to designers taking it to the wild side.

    Layers

    To borrow a phrase from Friends, could the models on the fall runways be wearing any more clothes? From Balenciaga to Marc Jacobs, looks were made up of two, three and sometimes even four layers. It’s certainly one way to keep warm.

    Rust

    Fiery shades of ochre and terracotta cast a warm glow over the runways. The brilliant thing about this earthy hue is that it works for all materials — from slinky satin to faux fur.

    Scarves & Scarf Prints

    Silky, flowery scarves are back in a big way — but these aren’t your grandmother’s kerchiefs. New iterations by industry darlings Richard Quinn and Marine Serre are almost absurdist in their over-the-top appeal.

    Plaid

    Plaid was another perennial trend to get this season’s more-is-more treatment. With a dose of neon and a clash of tartans, the print takes on a subversive note.

    If you’re a fan of fuss-free high fashion, look no further than the latest crop of logo-emblazoned sweaters, which hit the sweet spot between preppy and streetwise.
