With summer officially on its way out, it’s time to give our closets a little update. Rather than the crazy colours and silhouettes of last season, this fall is all about staple pieces in a neutral palette. Think floor-sweeping coats, big boots and impeccably tailored yet loose-fitting pants. Building a capsule wardrobe makes putting outfits together super simple thanks to your collection of basics and timeless pieces that will always match. Here are all the fall fashion trends that you should be shopping for now.
If you want to achieve that Stockholm style aesthetic, knitwear is definitely essential. While knit clothes definitely had a moment this summer, it’s the chunky sweaters made for fall that reign supreme. Style these with anything from skirts and tights to your favourite jeans for an easy and cosy outfit. Every major store carries knit sweaters but you can also shop at local brands like MGMP.
While leather jackets are nothing new, they’ve been all over runways and are sure to make their way onto streets just as soon as the weather cools down. There are so many different ways to wear this look from the chic long leather blazers to edgier motorcycle jackets. If you want to find leather from Egyptian brands try Ravin and Fog Fashion Wear.
Long Trench Coats
This icon of outerwear is the epitome of effortlessly chic fashion. Throwing on a trench coat over any outfit instantly makes you look like you’ve got places to be and people to see. This coat will definitely be a staple for the fall season. You can shop at stores like H&M and Zara for the look.
Bigger is better this season! Over-the-knee boots are back in style again, so dump those Chelsea boots in favour of these super chic ones. They come in heeled and flat versions making them perfect for any occasion. You can find them all over malls across Cairo in shoe stores like Aldo, Dejavu and more.
They’ve got more sophistication than sneakers and none of the pain you get from wearing heels all day. Loafers will be your new best friend this fall and winter since they pair well with just about any outfit. You can throw on a pair of these shoes in leather or suede for the office or when going out to dinner with friends. They’re already in stores everywhere like H&M and Mango, or you can shop local brands like Dejavu or Loafers Footwear for men.
