A lot of fall's biggest trends are nothing new. In fact, your closet is probably already bursting with them. Who knew you were so stylish? 1Chunky Knits Turtlenecks are especially trendy this fall, but any thick knit will do. For a more modern look, try tucking a fitted chunky sweater into a high-waisted pencil skirt. Or, for a more relaxed but equally stylish look, take an oversized sweater and laver it on top of everything from skinny jeans to maxi dresses. The bigger and chunkier the sweater, the better.
2Flat Black Boots Take your old go-to black leather boots to the shoe repair place for a little TLC and a nice high-polish shine, then wear them with everything from silk dresses to tweed pencil skirts.
3Mini Skirts Runways this season were full of mini skirts in every color, print, and texture you can think of. Pair yours with a long-sleeved shirt or fitted sweater and some chunky flats to bring your look up-to-date.
4Flares Flares are back in a big way, but they can be tough to pull off. The trick is sticking to high-waisted styles and then accentuating your waist by either wearing a crop top or tucking in your shirt. Thankfully, the low-rise flare trend that defined the early '00s has yet to be resurrected.
5Plaid Everything Shirts, skirts, jackets, pants, boots, bags, all plaid is good plaid. And don't feel the need to limit yourself to one piece of plaid at a time either. Treat it like a neutral and mix in other prints, even other plaids, for a more fashion-forward look.
6 Long Camel Coats You may not own this exact coat, but you've probably got something similar with a belt at the waist to give it a more feminine look. Give your coat a mini makeover simply by tying the belt loosely behind your back, or removing it entirely so that the coat hangs straight down instead of cinching in at your waist.
7Patterned Tights From fishnet to lace to animal print, to embellished, this fall is all about using texture to up your tights game. Keep the look sexy and cool by sticking to neutral colors like black, white, and nude, and choosing sheer fabrics and patterns that let your skin peek through.
8Puffers The puffier your puffer coat is, the trendier you will look. Seriously, if there was ever a year to embrace your inner Michelin man, this is it.
9Statement Earrings The real statement here is asymmetry. Instead of wearing two big, bold earrings, wear one on one side and a simple stud on the other.
10Parkas The trick to making your old parka feel fresh and new is wearing it over something soft and feminine, like a lingerie-inspired slip dress or slinky silk camisole.
