Fashion moves so fast and is so fickle that it’s easy to feel like you’re “in” one day and “out” the next. One of the solutions to staying ahead of the style curve is to swap current trends for future trends, which means scouting fall fashions for ideas. Fortunately, we’ve done that for you and compiled five super simple swaps for an instant outfit upgrade.

If you want to leap light years ahead of the fashion pack, try these five forthcoming trends now.

1

This: Glossy Leather

Not That: Matte Leather

According to the Fall/Winter 2017 runways, glossy leather is a major trend, but you can adopt it now for a cool new look. What you’re looking for is a mirror-like finish, preferably in black. This trend works for jackets, skirts, and boots, so be on the lookout for liquid-leather pieces in cool styles that make a statement.

2

This: Decorated Denim

Not That: Shredded Denim

While shredded denim might be everywhere right now, it’s embellished, embroidered, and decorated denim that the “It” girls are already wearing. Get creative with it and make your own look by upholstering a denim jacket with colorful patches, or opt for something more unusual like pearl-studded jeans.

3

This: Corset

Not That: Skinny Belt

One of fall’s biggest trends is the cinched waist, and the easiest way to achieve this silhouette is with the outrageously popular corset. Top anything with a chic corset – from slogan tees to trench coats – and you’ll absolutely nail one of 2017’s most flattering looks.

4

This: Platforms

Not That: Stilettos

While we acknowledge the ubiquity of the kitten and block heels, it’s platform shoes that are predominantly on the rise for 2017. Thanks to Gucci and Marc Jacobs, celebrities and stylish “It” girls around the globe are trading sky-high stilettos for towering platforms instead.

5

This: Romantic Florals

Not That: Minimal Frocks

While menswear is a huge trend for 2017, so are super-feminine, flowing silhouettes. Opt for a deeply romantic floral frock and either do a head-to-toe feminine look that includes pretty sandals and a lovely “It” bag or toughen up your look with moto boots and a leather jacket. The choice is yours.
