2014 Fall Fashion Must-Haves

The new season is just around the corner, and we can’t wait to get our hands on some cozy knits, over-the-knee boots, and everything else that makes fall fashion so fun. Scroll through for a glimpse of what the Royal Rags team is coveting for fall.


Leather is a typical fall staple! All fashionista’s are used to that leather jacket we love to rock in the chill autumn weather! The difference this season is that leather is back in ways that fit perfectly into our summer outfits.

Printed Harem Pants

Loose-fitting, graphic harem pants are so right-now. Harem pants might sound like a terrible flashback to the 90′s but they are back and they are better than ever! It’s one of those styles that look better on than in theory.

In the fall, switch it up and wear cardigans, and sweaters with the darker and more neutral toned patterns. You can finish the look with some black MiuMius or other flats!

The Speckled Pullover

A new version of the traditional nubby sweater makes its way into (or back into) our closets each season. For fall, we've been feeling the speckled, marled pullover that has a made-by-hand vibe. If your knitting skills aren't quite past knit, purl, unravel, start over, both high-street shops and high-end designers have versions that look as good as Ma's.

The Fall Parka

The great thing about a fall parka is that it can easily become your winter parka with the addition of a lining. Wear it with the sleeves rolled up and easy dresses for the beginning of fall, and with thick trousers and knits when the temps really start to drop.

The Substantial Sweater

Duh, right? Make sure yours is oversized, heavy, but fitted through the shoulders (so the sweater looks like yours, and not something you borrowed from your dad).

The Sexy-Back Blouse

We're familiar with (and slightly over) the mullet skirt, but it's time to bring the "business in the front, party in the back" philosophy to our blouses. We're seeing loads of button-ups deliver a surprise hit of skin in the back, whether through sheer panels, a deep slit, or clever cut-outs. Wear them with high-waisted trousers and skirts, and never, ever tuck 'em in.

The New Annie Hall Trouser

If you don't already own one of these roomy, baggy trousers, now's the time to get some. The good news is plenty of shops (thrift stores included) carry great versions, so they won't be a pain to find. Roll up the cuffs yourself or get them tailored to hit right above your ankles. Then, pair them with anything. Seriously — party tops, sneakers, booties, blazers, crop tops — it all works!

The Kick-Pleat Skirt

A kick pleat is one, substantial pleat situated at the lap of a skirt that gives it a "are those shorts?" vibe. We like that it gives a ladylike shape a little bit of edge, and creates some volume on what could be a pretty 2-D-looking garment. Go for a length that hits at least below the knee — anything shorter can appear too young.

The Lace-Up Heel

It's not a gladiator, and not quite like those traditional ribbon-wrapped heels, but this shoe is leg-lengthening, uniquely elegant, and still very, very cool. Wear it with denim and a pretty top, or to give your favorite dress a fresh spin.
