  • October officially opens the door to the holidays, and we’ve got the shortlist of trends you’re going to love all season long—think throwback-inspired styles, cozy decor, comfort food and more.

    Dressing through the decades

    Some things are best left in the past, but these should definitely be in your future. The '70s are back with wide leg pants (up 89%) and retro patterns and textures, like plaid (up 112% this year) and embroidery (up 51%).

    '90s fans are crushing on head-to-toe velvet. Velvet clothing is up 31% and velvet shoes are up 44%. Also seeing a revival? Fishnets, with saves up 318% this year.

    Indi-go for it

    Both shibori and indigo-dyed mud cloth have been trending for the past year, but really seeing a spike as the temps drop. Mud cloth is up 550% year over year, with neutral and natural designs especially popular.

    Beyond the PSL

    It’s not all about pumpkin spice. Fall menus promise so much more. Case in point: cinnamon apple chips (58k saves), baked figs with goat cheese (14k saves), stuffed butternut squash (20k saves) and autumn minestrone soup (15k saves).
