High Gloss Patent Leather
Our vintage-inspired trend is officially back as patent leather has become a modern-day fall staple. Going for an all-black look is timeless, but jewel tones and lighter neutrals will make you more creative.

As the temperature drops, we tend to throw on an oversize coat and call it a day. Luckily, oversized is a major trend this fall season, and it takes a cue from menswear-inspired silhouettes.
