Autumn fashion trends to look out for: What every woman needs to know

With the leaves changing colours and the world entering the last quarter of the year, it's time for fall fashion to make a comeback. At all leading fashion shows so far, Autumn 2022 fashion has been headlined by minimalistic pieces and everyday essentials. The 90s revival has stayed around for another season but this time, it's a lot more toned down.

Many of our favourite autumnal items can be worn year-round, making them wise investments to make at any time. The most reliable outfits in the fall are frequently the most basic ones given the fact that you could never predict when the weather might take a 180-degree turn. This is further enunciated by the fact that autumns in India aren’t quite as chilly as those in European or American nations, thus this might not be the best time for donning heavy jackets.

Top Womenswear Fashion Trends This Autumn

If we had to describe the Fall 2022 collection in 3 words, it’d be - Classic, comfortable, and casual. To help you stay on par with current fashion trends, we’ve compiled a list of Autumnal clothing that is going to help you perfect your street style game instantly. Keep reading to find out!

Patterned Shirts

In modern times, collared shirts are mostly associated with men’s fashion, but their structured build can be an excellent addition to women’s formal wear. Major designers have created their collections keeping quiet confidence at the centre of it - a sentiment that best describes androgynous clothing. Patterned shirts work best in silk, satin, and linen fabrics and should be worn in an oversized fit. Fall outfits have a high saturation of metallic tones and luscious colours which can be replicated through these shirts very well.

This White Pure Cotton Casual Shirt would look incredible with some tapered trousers or a midi skirt. The key is to create an ultra-feminine outfit with this masculine fit by adding gold earrings, bracelets, and pumps.

Mom Jeans

Baggy jeans have been having a moment over the last 3 years and they’re not stopping any time soon. If you like highlighting your curves a bit more and can’t get enough of the high-waisted fit, then mom jeans are the perfect choice for you. Mom jeans, which have a cinched waist and roomy legs, should be in every woman's closet. They can be both formal and casual depending on what you need at the moment.

Choose a classic pair of blue mom jeans for a laid-back look with carefree styling. Its loose fit immediately gives off a laid-back vibe. Black denim, which combines sophistication and rebellion, looks great with any outfit and suits a variety of occasions. For a cool office look, pair it with a white button-down and stilettos or rock it with a leather jacket and combat boots before heading to a concert.

Kendall and Kylie Clothing does a great job with staple pants such as these Light Blue Mom Jeans. They have a slight acid wash theme which gives a rather basic pair of jeans the oomph factor.

Little Black Dresses or LBDs are usually “The Dress to Impress” for most people. You can never go wrong with them and they make you look elegant without taking hours to pick an outfit. Despite emphasising on having one hanging in the closet, the majority of people are unaware of how useful and versatile a great little black dress can be. With classic styles making their way into autumn wear, it's time to utilise your pieces to their max potential.

This Multi Printed Dress by Kendall + Kylie will help you take this a step further by twisting the thin tie in several ways. You may even wear this over a sheer long-sleeved t-shirt in a white or glittery black colour for a more modest look.

Layer heavily to break up the LBD's monochromatic palette. To add even more depth and interest, start with a vest, cardigan, or jacket and then add jewellery and accessories. A slim-fitting LBD can be worn as a great basic top or a black skirt when paired with the appropriate top or skirt. Just ensure your hemline is long enough to cover your dress completely.

Low Waist Flared Jeans

Low-rise jeans were one of the most worn bottoms in the 90s and with the era coming back in vogue, all the pear-shaped girls are going to be ecstatic about the jeans trends this season. Go all-out '00s with your bottoms if you’re a fearless trend-seeker. Choose designs with period-appropriate details, such as flared or even pieces without a structured waistband, or styles with no pockets. But if you want to play it safe while looking chic, low-waist flared jeans are a match made in heaven for you.

These Black Elle Jeans will look stunning with a frilled blouse. If you want to show off your abs, then you can also opt for a cropped polo top.

Wearing black leather boots with flared jeans is the biggest fashion power move so try out a pair with a mini purse hanging around your wrist.

Baby Tees

Baby tees were one of the most notable fashion phenomenons of the 90s and early 2000s with Hollywood movies crowded with teen divas rocking them. They’ve been trending throughout 2022 and their ability to fit into every aesthetic is going to keep them relevant this fall too. Since the '90s, when they served as a sort of counterbalance to the previous decade's oversized casualwear, baby tees have been a go-to for cool girls. They are a versatile piece that can convey effortlessness as easily as it does glamour. In a way, they are a product of the widespread nostalgia the current generation is experiencing for the older eras.

There are numerous ways to style these cropped tops, including wearing them with a miniskirt, biker shorts, or high-waisted jeans. They look cool and sexy at the same time. Wearing Kendall + Kylie’s Lilac Solid Round Neck Tshirt with workout pants or baggy jeans can make for a prime casual day fit. To make it more autumn-appropriate, consider adding a light cardigan on top when the sun’s out or a weathered leather coat during the night.

We might not live in the coldest country out there but Indian air does start to pick up quite a chill in the later half of Autumn. Jackets or overcoats might be a bit much for now, but sweatshirts will never fail to make you feel cosy and cute. They’re best suited for sporty and ultra-casual looks and make for great loungewear. If you lose your mind every time you need to pick a college outfit or dress for a coffee date, sweatshirts will become your go-to tops.

This Pink Printed Hooded Sweatshirt by Gant is ideal for women that like being active but modish. The floral pattern on the sleeves makes it stand out and retain a cheery spirit.

If you are a fan of athletic looks, then you could also try sweatshirts with college or sports team logos in bold typography. Pair these up with a tennis skirt or jeans to look lovely for any occasion. 


If you have a hard time picking the right silhouette that flatters your body type, the easiest way to make any summer outfit a fall one is to switch up the colour palette. Dark jewel tones and earthy shades are the names of the game when it comes to Autumn fashion and in most cases, they never go out of style.

Instead of getting a bunch of outerwear because you’re too hyped up for the upcoming Winter season, invest in high-quality pieces that will last you a long time. In addition to great jacket opportunities, some essential items—like baggy jeans, khaki pants, knit vests, and of course, boots and bags—all come together to create fierce autumnal looks. In case the lack of poppy colours hits you too hard, do not refrain from including neon accessories in your wardrobe. The core idea is to have fun while also being fab so always stay open to venturing out of your usual get-ups!
