September marks the beginning of fall, and we’re wasting no time getting into the spirit. While autumn welcomes comfy scarves and pumpkin spice lattes, it’s also undeniably one of the best seasons for high fashion. From daring prints to extravagant details, fall is a trendsetter’s favorite time of year. To help you get ready for the season, we’re launching our Fall Edit to share our favorite fashionable trends at the best mall in Miami.
Leopards, zebras, and cheetahs — oh my! This fall is all about bracing your wild side. Animal prints are a long-standing wardrobe staple, infusing adventure into your ensemble with bold sophistication. From the jungle to the grasslands, exotic animal prints are abounding this fall. Animal patterns in neutral camel-hued tones can make an intriguing statement in a subtle way. Pair animal print with solid staples, like a buttoned-up blouse or simple black tee, or dare to mix in brightly-hued colors this season.

This season’s most coveted textile is a trend that will last through 2019. Polished and preppy plaid pieces are making fall buttoned-up in all of the right places. Pair a tailored blazer over your favorite boyfriend jeans for a look that merges cool-girl glam with Ivy League chic. Give plaid a twirl with a pleated skirt filled with movement or a more polished mini short. The versatile pattern adds elegance in an instant.
