Just because the weather outside is hot and humid doesn't mean we aren't sitting here dreaming about sipping pumpkin spice lattes on a crisp fall day in the park. And part of that dream includes us sporting a great fall jacket to keep us looking cool while staying warm. From chunky knits, to chic wool jackets and furry parkas; the runways were full of trendy options to keep you from catching a chill as the weather turns. Here are our top five picks for fall outerwear from some of our favorite designers. Read on to get a jump start on your fall wardrobe shopping as we show you where you can shop similar pieces right now on the cheap!
White is the New Black
What do you wear when you have nothing to wear? The go-to, monochromatic, sartorial fallback of an all black look, of course. This season, designers (literally, almost all of them) have presented a “brighter” option for our old monochromatic standby, showing head to toe winter-ready white in the form of chic eveningwear, tailored pantsuits and everything in between. Lyn Devon goes super sweet and retro chic with a modest angora sweater and tea-length duchesse satin skirt. Cushnie et Ochs offer winter white separates as sleek tailored trousers paired with a sheer collared top make the trend as seductive as their curve-hugging dresses. Alexander Wang doesn’t disappoint with his edgy twist, detailed with pearlescent fringe and black fishnet stockings.
Even though bold prints aren't exactly a new trend (they were all over Fall 2011 runways), designers have really made bold design shine this spring and summer, too! High-end designers, boutiques, and commercial stores have placed bold prints on their must-have lists this season, weaving intricate, geometric, origami, and animal inspired prints that decorate tops and bottoms into their spring and summer merchandise.
Bold prints have come out looking edgier and more chic this season than ever before. We’re taking more chances as shoppers, buying unique and stylish pieces and designers are feeding our frenzy by creating bolder, edgier, and abstract looks.

Aritizia is a vertically integrated multi-label retailer typically for women ages 18 to 25. There are eight brands that are produced in house, including J Brand and Rag & Bone. They are said to be completely independent from each other yet complement the other brands as well. The brands are not private label. They haven’t been sold to other stores yet, but plans are made for being wholesale eventually.
