Everything you need to know about the season’s big trends

  • Gimme Shelter
    Silhouettes, quilting and embellishments riff on armor Tory collects — her parents and grandparents were collectors, too.
  • Get a Loom
    Go for brocade… and jacquard and all types of tapestry details seen on oversized sweaters, printed dresses and boxy bags.
  • The Bridle Path
    From equestrian prints (including one inspired by a print Tory had as a child) to chic distressed leather, the horse motif reigns.
  • Texture Message
    Come a little closer. Surface matters like quilting, pleating and a range of chunky knits come into focus.
  • Farewell to Arms
    Florals and ruffles add a feminine counterpoint to Fall’s armor theme.
  • Details, Details
    Fall had a lot of them. Here they are: jeweled crosses, earring cuffs, metallic foiling, tooled leather, gold chains….
  • The Shape of Things to Come
    It’s a balancing act — chunky sweaters and roomy coats over short skirts or cropped, wide-legged trousers. All of it layered.
