This fall, A.K. Rikk’s Women’s Buyer, Blair Dame, has been keeping an eye on what social media influencers, celebrities, and fashion insiders are wearing to mix with our classic silhouettes and pieces. With styles changing each season, it can be hard to keep up, so we’ve made it extremely easy for you by pulling together this season’s Top Five Fall Trends below.
Teddy Bear Coats
Teddy bear coats get their name from their resemblance to your favorite childhood stuffed animal, the teddy bear. According to REAL SIMPLE, “Think of them as a way to carry that hygge feeling with you all winter long, with the added bonus of extra warmth.” The length blocks you from the wind and adds texture, dimension, and shape to any outfit. We carry some of these coat options in a variety of colors (camel, pink, and gray); however, pictured here are some amazing camel color looks paired with classic neutrals- navy, white, and black denim.
Micro shades are very small and narrow sunglasses- so small that they should just cover the tiniest sliver of your face. Inspired by the 90s and The Matrix, these downsized specs are pretty and practical. This unique look has become a fashion favorite- especially among celebrities. Luckily, sunglasses can be worn every season, so you can bring this minimalist trend through the rest of 2018. We have a variety of shapes for you to choose from in store and online!
Flared jeans are back and better than ever. These pants aren’t just for hippies and thrift-shoppers, they are actually one of the most flattering styles of jeans for women. According to Verily, “The modern flare adds a graceful, curved silhouette that can accentuate your feminine figure. The flare also adds length to your legs because it doesn’t cut off your natural lines by stopping at the ankles as skinny jeans do.” When wearing with a coat, the flare adds variety and shape to your outfit, creating layers and visual interest.

You’re probably noticing a pattern of vintage-inspired looks this season, and the oversized blazer is definitely one of our favorites. According to InStyle, “They don’t always have to be a package deal with matching trousers, nor must they be worn strictly for business. And if you ask us, our favorite blazers come oversized. It could be a touch of the ‘bigger is better’ mentality, or maybe just our love for anything seemingly boy-borrowed. Bottom line: Oversized blazers are just so undeniably stylish.” This trend can literally be dressed up with a dress and heels or down with a pair of jeans. Throwing one on is an easy way to feel put together and classy without trying too hard. A.K. Rikk’s offers this trend in a variety of colors and shapes that you will love.
This spring, Donatella Versace announced, “Fur? I am out of that.” This proclamation paired with animal activism has caused a shift in the industry, with many fashion houses reducing or eliminating the use of fur in future. You can still get the luxurious look and feel of fur with faux! According to Vanity Fair, “Both haute and a little haughty, with just the right hint of Mob wife, it is chic enough to seduce even the most stalwart fake-fur skeptic.” We have faux fur in a variety of shapes and colors- vests, bombers, coats.
