Fall fashion trends 2022: Athluxury, metallics, oversized blazers and more
Summer has come and gone, and the time for fall fashion is now.
In addition to the traditional outfit picks that tend to come back around year after year, there is a whole new crop of fall trends underway, according to fashion stylist Laura Pritchard.
“Tailoring has earned its place on every runway during every season,” Pritchard told “GMA.” “Last fall, we saw the popular pantsuit, but it’s since been replaced with plaid, houndstooth and tweed miniskirt suits — ruling the runways and streets.”
She added, “We also saw the trusted suit get a revamp with elongated toppers known as ‘the suit coat.’ It’s a look that is meant to be worn as a full layered look to stand out.”
Ahead, Pritchard walks us through some of the standout fall trends to add to your mood board this season.

While many of us have come to know and love the term athleisure, Pritchard said that now, it’s all about “athluxury.”
“The sporty aesthetic is more dressed up than ever before,” she said. “Hero athletic brands have been teaming up with luxury fashion houses, and it seems the collabs aren’t on their way out quite yet. This comfortable trend is easy to pull off.
Oversized tailored blazers
“Designers have brought back the oversized tailored blazer but revamped the trend with extreme bold shoulders,” Pritchard said.
While this look can seem like a tricky piece to wear for some, she said it’s actually more versatile than you think.
Stylist tip: Pair this look with slim underpinnings to balance out the extreme proportions. A basic rule to follow: If an oversized garment is taking up half of your body, keep it slim on the other half.
Another hack is to try heading to the men’s section for a huge assortment of oversized blazers as opposed to spending a lot of money on some of this season’s latest women’s designer picks.
Pritchard also recommends adding additional shoulder pads to give the shoulder some extra height.
Vibrant highlighter-like colors were seen all over the runways for fall, and there’s a big chance we’ll continue to see them in stores everywhere. “While it’s not for the color minimalist, wearing the punchy hue from head to toe, as seen on red carpets and catwalks, will certainly turn some heads and keep you looking fresh during the colder months,” Pritchard said.
Classic white tanks
Classic white tanks are making a huge comeback and were seen at designer shows ranging from Prada to Bottega Veneta. “While the staple has never truly left our closets, it’s experiencing a centerstage moment again and getting reimagined,” Pritchard said.
Several designers paired the wardrobe staple with everything from casual denim to over-the-top evening skirts.
Pritchard said metallics were the star of many fall designer collections.
“From dresses and blouses to boots and handbags, these sparkling shades of gold, silver and black will rule our closets this fall,” she said. “This trend is not just for fancy holiday parties, but can easily be worn casually with your trusty T-shirt and denim.”
