Following New York Fashion Week, all anyone in the industry is thinking about are the major trends that will be taking over next spring and summer. Not on the tip of everyone’s tongues are the smaller trends that are emerging right now. I, however, have a tendency to zero in on even the tiniest of trends, scrolling for hours on Instagram and TikTok all the while taking note of every last item I believe has the potential to go big. So, since I need a break from thinking about next season’s top trends, I’m instead spending today focusing all my concentration on those less-talked-about fall micro trends that are emerging as we speak.
From Miu Miu-inspired satin ballet flats (best paired with slouchy socks) to drop-waist dresses à la Khaite, there’s no shortage of small-but-mighty fads circulating on the internet for fall. That said, I thought I’d edit down the list to a more digestible 8 micro-trends that you should be especially cognizant of this season. Scroll down to see and of course shop the ones that made the cut.
