Even though the summer is in full swing, it’s time to start wishfully thinking about the cooler days coming ahead! It’s (almost) out with swimsuits and flip flops, and in with the newest trends for pre-fall.

This in-between season is all about taking a cue from decades past — especially the 60′s and 70′s. Moral of the story? Everything old is new again!

1. Flares

Following along with the 70′s roots, flares are all the rage. Not just pants, either — skirts and tops are also getting in on the trend with flouncy, flared hems that make any outfit a bit more fun.


Shop our favorite flared items, like these Current/Elliot flared jeans, shocking Pucci pants, and adorable Neoprene skirt.

2. Shearling

Shearling, in all it’s fluffy glory, is coming back in a big way. Faux or real, shearling is sure to keep you warm when the temps drop, while adding a layer of excitement to any look.


Our picks: this wool-blend coat and this funky patch-work jacket. Not ready to fully commit? Try a vest like this gorgeous embroidered option over your favorite basics.

3. Babydoll Dresses

It’s time to show off those tanned legs you worked for all summer! Hemlines across the board are rising, and we cant complain! Pair a sweet babydoll dress with thigh-high boots for an adorable nod to the 60′s.


We love this classic babydoll from Alice + Olivia, this sleeveless option from Farfetch, and this fun fringed dress from Blue and Cream.

4. Statement Earrings

The bigger, the better! Deck out your ears with bold styles like tassels or metallic fringe. Clip-on earrings are even making their return this pre-fall, so don’t fret if your ears can’t handle the heavy metal.


Pair your statement earrings with a minimalistic outfit — also on trend this season — to make them truly pop. Our picks are these tassel earrings from BaubleBar and these dazzling fringed earrings. If you’re looking to go bold with clip-ons, we love this brightly colored pair.

5. Ponchos

Ponchos are also back this season, restyled and better than ever with bold patterns and soft materials. Whether you choose a cape or a poncho, you can’t go wrong with this cozy-cool look.


Style yours with a fresh pair of flares and maybe some suede booties for an on-point look. We’re crushing on this hooded poncho from Alice + Oliva, and these chic capes from Chloe and Missoni.
