I've Just Discovered 6 Secret Microtrends, and I'm Buying Them All


Microtrends are often offshoots of defining looks from the runways. After a few months of percolating and being adopted early by fashion enthusiasts, the key (albeit it less obvious) emerging buys are visible to the eagle-eyed among us.

What's more is that they are often easier to weave into our daily looks without resulting in side-eyes from passersby in the street. Take animal print, for example. It's undoubtedly one of fall's frontrunners (showcased at Dolce & Gabbana, Givenchy, and Halpern in the most delightfully extravagant ways), but you may find that, in reality, wearing it head to toe isn't the simplest option. Instead, we'll likely turn to hero pieces like a coat, skirt, or a sweater.

Another example of a microtrend that came to life this past summer via street style and social media was Réalisation's leopard-print skirt. Why did it become so popular? Because it's a game-changing item we can style with T-shirts and our go-to shoes.

In addition to reflecting the top trends, you'll also find that microtrends are often more affordable (win) and more likely to garner a nod from those in the know (double win). Keep scrolling to discover and shop the microtrends dominating fall and winter this year.
