While many are still soaking in the last days of summer, the fashion set is already looking ahead to a whole new season – as fashion month is in full swing, kicking off last week in NYC. While you may not be ready to adopt next year’s must-have items just yet, why not get a head start on the season’s biggest trends. When it comes to fashion, I just can't wait! So I rounded up these guaranteed cool-girl approved looks that will have you earning for cooler temps in no time.

You can now channel your inner Grunge Girl thanks to the resurgence of the 90’s. From Marc by Marc Jacobs to Moschino, the 90’s Grunge scene ruled the runways for FW15. Take this trend for a spin with a graffiti-inspired sweatshirt like Titika’s Game on Sweater ($80.00). Pair this oversized jumper with the Gamer Shorts ($48.00) layered over black leggings and your go-to chucks, for a stylish back to school ensemble worthy of the fashion set.
Style Tip: For a model off-duty inspired look, rock the Glitch Tank ($34.00) with black leggings, styled with a plaid shirt wrapped around the waist and a pair of Chucks to lock in that signature 90’s style.

Nothing screams “Fall” quite like men’s inspired tweed, a regular favorite on the FW runways. This season designers embraced its surprisingly sensual side as seen at Rodarte, Polo Ralph Lauren and Altuzarra. For an instant Fall update, incorporate this trend into your off-duty arsenal with Titika’s Prim Jacket ($108.00). If you’re feeling like a fearless fashionista- say that fast three times, rock the Print on Print trend by pairing it with the Meryl Tank ($58.00) and the season’s newest boyfriend jean, the “fitted boyfriend” for a cool laid-back vibe.
Style Tip: For those not ready to take the full plunge of print on print, try rocking the look with matching accessories like these cool tweed slip on booties.
