Whether you’re heading back to school or looking to jump start your seasonal spree, fall has always been the best refresher to any wardrobe. State Street houses these five must-have trends every Chicago woman needs this upcoming season.
1. PEPLUM GOING STRONG
Stemming from the 1940s, the peplum was originally adhered to the bottom of fitted suit jackets and has evolved to tops, skirts, and dresses like this fitted V-neck cocktail. Try it in a bold color like this or a fun floral.
H&M, $49.95, 22 North State Street Chicago, IL 60602
2. PRINTED PANT PLESSURE
Graphic prints have moved from just statement pieces and accents to outerwear and strait leg trousers. Mix and match this linear pant with a solid top for fall.
Macy’s, $49.99, 111 North State Street Chicago, IL 60602
3. COZY KNIT STAPLE
Slouchy, oversized woven sweaters and fitted light knits are perfect for when the temperature starts to drop. Easy and comfy, a cozy knit can be worn with shorts or jeans.
Old Navy, $25.00, 35 North State Street Chicago, IL 60602
4. SECURING HARD & SOFT
Trending its way into fall, the pairing of that light summer dress and an edgy leather jacket will work perfectly or try layering light tunics and dark ankle boots.

Cashmere Round Neck Tee, $178.00
Foldover Skirt, $79.00
Wink Bootie, $310.00
5. PLEATS, PLEASE
A knee length, pleated skirt in a floral print or dark maroon will be an easy addition to your existing wardrobe. A skirt like this can also be easily translated from the office to happy hour.
