The Fall 2022 Trends Vogue Editors Are Shopping Now

Table of Contents

The fall shows gave us a lot to look forward to this season, from Khaite’s delectable assortment of leather jackets to Saint Laurent’s dresses that skimmed the floor with an elegance that seems only right for the fall and winter seasons. Plus there were endless options of wardrobe classics, from white shirting to blue denim. Their wearability and of-the-moment feel make many of these fall 2022 trends the perfect candidates for our editors’ fall wish lists. In fact, everything from the season’s beautifully brushed knits—perfect for layering!—and ultra-baggy jeans to designer tank tops have found themselves in our wardrobes already, or at least our shopping carts.

Here is a shoppable guide of the fall 2022 trends to wear this season and a handpicked edit of the pieces our editors are buying now.

Ultra-Baggy Denim

Balenciaga cotton baggy jeans

I’m all in on super-baggy jeans. After spending many of my teenage years in extra-skinny jeans, I’m finding relief in the breezy, easy silhouettes. Nobody is doing it better than Balenciaga at the moment. I’ve been pairing them with graphic tees or equally oversized button-ups. Basically, leaning into a skater-boy vibe. —Christian Allaire, fashion and style writer

Leather Jackets: The Epitome of Cool

Khaite shellar shearling-collar leather jacket

While sitting at Khaite’s runway show last season, all I could say to my colleague—other than noting the epic the Talking Heads soundtrack—was, “Which leather jacket do we want?” The collection showed multiple silhouettes, and they were all perfect, from the bomber to the blazer to the lacquered puffer. And now I am being seduced by the array of transitional slim-line, long-length ’90s jackets too. With many strong options from which to choose, this is going to be a highly considered investment purchase for the season ahead. —Lisa Aiken, executive fashion director, Vogue.com

Punk Prep

Prada gabardine midi skirt

I’ve always been drawn toward the polished appeal of tailoring, whether it’s via boxy blazers or slouchy wide-leg trousers, so when I saw the clean lines of fall 2022’s preppy trend, I knew I’d be a fan. From Prada’s pleated midi to Marine Serre’s punk-inspired tartan, this is less tennis-club whites and more anarchic school uniform meets Annie Hall. I’ll be injecting some preppy styling into my new-season wardrobe with kilt-inspired skirts, polished loafers, and plenty of white shirting. —Joy Montgomery, senior commerce writer, British Vogue

Saturated and Strokable Knits

Marni striped brushed mohair-blend cardigan

Mohair really piqued my interest last fall and winter. One of my heavy-rotations pieces was a Junya Watanabe x Supreme sweater crafted in a delightfully scratchy mohair fabric. I loved having something super textural to touch throughout the day. Once we approach the colder side of fall, I’m excited to snatch up some more mohair for sure. Scraggly knits are a great way to add instant character to any outfit. You immediately feel like a Sesame Street character. I love this colorful, almost boyish mohair-blend cardigan from Marni. And when I want to go full Jim Henson, I might have to throw on this Dries Van Noten jacket. —André-Naquian Wheeler, fashion news writer

Bigger, Better Bomber Jackets

The Frankie Shop Astra oversized padded satin bomber jacket

Come fall, everyone needs that perfectly effortless jacket to throw over your shoulders and head out the door. Something chic, something practical, something that can be dressed up and down. Taking notes from the fall/winter shows, I’m excited to tap into a reemerging trend and reintroduce the bomber jacket into my wardrobe. However this coming season, no crops—we’re thinking oversized! —Ciarra Lorren Zatorski, associate fashion editor

The White-Tank-and-Blue-Jean Formula

Prada ribbed knit jersey tank top

How wonderful it is that my go-to fall pieces are considered runway trends this season? For starters, a good old white tank top has single-handedly been the foundation of the majority of my outfits for a few seasons now, so if the fall 2022 collections suggest wearing one with relaxed blue jeans, I happily volunteer! —Madeline Fass, market editor

Floor-Skimming Hemlines

Saint Laurent wool-crepe maxi dress

Saint Laurent’s fall 2022 show served 56 perfect looks, in my opinion. I would be forever content if I could wear an iteration of every look; it was all so elegant and simple. The maxi lengths specifically spoke to me as someone who is 5 feet 10 inches and always struggling to find things cut long enough to skim the floor. I loved the silhouettes and what the styling of big jackets over the maxidresses brought—sharp blazers or bomber styles hitting specifically mid thigh. I’m obsessed with this black maxidress that has just dropped on Net-a-Porter; it sums up the timelessness of that show. —​​Naomi Smart, commerce director, British Vogue

Tailored Waistcoats

Frankie Shop Maesa asymmetric woven vest

The suit vest is my must-have item for fall. Because the warm temperatures in NYC aren’t going anywhere anytime soon, they’re the perfect transitional piece. I like to wear mine with matching pants for a full suit look. I love this asymmetrical one from The Frankie Shop—it gives the traditional menswear garment some edge! —Laura Jackson, commerce writer

Trenches That Turn Heads

Chloé belted ruffled broderie anglaise wool trench coat

Ultimately, the trench coat is the one thing that comes to my mind when thinking about in-between-season shopping. It’s the one fashion piece that must not only protect against the elements but also be effortlessly chic. Luckily the fall collections—from Burberry to Sacai, Proenza Schouler, or The Row—offer a wide range of the favorite closet staple, all bound to turn heads. Be it twisted details or trendier silhouettes, these trench coats are anything but basic. —Miriam Nehring, senior affiliate editor, Vogue Germany

Stealth Square Loafers

Proenza Schouler leather loafers

While I won’t be giving up my other loafer styles this fall, it seems that each season I add a new pair into my rotation. This fall I am loving the exaggerated square silhouettes I’m seeing from Proenza Schouler and Jil Sander. The penny-less slip-on silhouette adds an understated style element to any look. Compared to the lug soles and visible-logo options of seasons past, these embrace the stealth chic and quiet-luxury feeling that is happening now. —M.F.

High-Coverage Cashmere

Brunello Cucinelli Shimmer cashmere-blend long gloves

This fall, I’m leaning into cold-weather accessories like never before. That means elbow-length cashmere gloves and balaclavas. I started to dabble with both in late spring when I saw them make appearances on the fall runways (Prada, Altuzarra, Proenza Schouler), and now that everything has finally landed in stores, I’m fully committing. Plus, I feel comfortable splurging because unlike, say, a cashmere V-neck sweater, you can wear your gloves and knitted hood while commuting or taking wintery walks as often as needed. —Lilah Ramzi, commerce editor

Eye-Catching Stacking Rings

Jupiter bold peridot, enamel, and 18-karat gold-plated ring

I am currently really into building a jewelry wardrobe. Putting on lots of gold and bronze rings and bracelets makes me feel like a chic adult even if I’m just wearing jeans and a T-shirt. But I’m also a sucker for a bright neon, and lucky for me there’s a slew of designers working in bold enamel tones. Currently number one on my wish list is this Jupiter neon green ring with a matching peridot stone—which just so happens to be my birthstone! It feels like it was created just for me. If money were no object, I’d go for the Fry Powers stacking-ring trio—aren’t they just the coolest? —Laia Garcia-Furtado, senior fashion news editor

Workhorse Bags

Proenza Schoulder multi Dia day bag

Proenza Schoulder drawstring tote

This fall I’m continuing to focus on buying bags that are worth the investment. However this season, I’m doubling down on bag pairings inspired by those seen on the fall runways at Bottega Veneta, Altuzarra, and Proenza Schouler. The double-bag styling trick is designed for the working commuter—one bag to store the essentials (wallet, keys, phone) and a second bag for the office extras (laptop, notebook, planner). This season I have my eye on Proenza Schouler’s runway-ready combo of a Dia day bag with a drawstring tote. —Julie Tong, commerce director
