As hard as it is to say goodbye to summer, there’s just something about fall fashion that makes us downright giddy. And this year, there’s a lot to get excited about. From silver foil to a major 80s comeback, Clueless-inspired plaids and moody florals, Fall 2018 is a fabulous sartorial ride of rave-like colors, reflective materials, delightfully surprising silhouettes -- and more. Contributing Style Director, Melissa Lum scoured the market for the six items you'll want to sport this season.

"I love this season's 80’s slouchy throwback boots. This, just above ankle height, is a perfect way to wear the trend with modern silhouettes ."
“There’s always the piece of the season that will instantly smarten up a pair of jeans or a slip dress. This tweed jacket does just that, with details that skew more Saville Row than prep school.”
HEAD TO TOE FLORALS
“Confining florals to spring and summer are a thing of the past. There is nothing more romantic to welcome falling leaves and crisp weather than a long, bold floral dress with modern Victorian details.”
“Fully reflective silver apparel is a sartorial nod to the future. This pleated skirt can easily transition a look from cyborg to femme.”
"I'm totally obsessed with Prada's 90's club kid vibe this season, but I just can't bring myself to relive it in its entirety. This neon backpack; however, is totally going to replace my black Vela backpack as my daily commuter go-to."
"There is no doubt that climate change has affected the predictability of the seasons. The one thing I know I can expect is a blustery NYC day in the middle of winter. I'm loving the enormous parkas that are trending. While they may make navigating rush hour a little tricky, this coat is roomy enough to layer over my tweed jacket."
