I’m personally not that big of a fan of “tricky trends.” You know, those trends that just seem complicated—whether it’s that they don’t pair easily with go-to basics like jeans or appear to be uncomfortable and not so versatile. If you’re with me, what's coming your way could be particularly intriguing to you. Yep, autumn 2020 actually hosts a variety of simple trends that are actually quite easy to style.
Essentially, the looks in question could inherently just style themselves and make a fashion-forward statement with minimal effort aside from potentially having to mix in a few basics. I’m talking about items like eye-catching knit dresses, directional tailoring, and so on. Keep scrolling to check out these six uncomplicated autumn trends, complete with a bit of visual inspiration. You’ll also find shopping recommendations as well if you’re interested in getting a jump-start on building out your wardrobe.
