Want to set yourself apart this autumn? Take a look at these trends that are sure to take your style from lackluster to leading lady.

Animal Print

It’s safe to say that animal print is here to stay–and for good reason. While leopard and cheetah print are the safer choices of last year, zebra, snakeskin and tiger stripes take this trend to new heights in 2019. Rather than keeping this one minimal with a printed scarf or mule loafers, take a walk on the wild side and opt for a feline-inspired overcoat or neon reptilian pantsuit to change things up.


Bucket Hats

Choose a topper with an eye-catching pattern or bright color to add a fun twist to any ensemble and achieve instant cool-girl status. Think you can’t pull this one-off? As if.
