Out with the old, in with the new! This week there's some key emerging themes you won't want to miss in fall trends. Read on for the inside scoop.

CHUNKY BOOTS

This fall's footwear leaves an imprint - both literally and metaphorically speaking. A heavy sole paired with fashionable laces, mixes comfort and style handily. It's further proof, too, that the utility trend is sticking around.

WOODSTOCK 50TH ANNIVERSARY

This past weekend marked the 50th anniversary of the music and cultural festival that played a major role in an American cultural movement of peace and togetherness. Retailers including Free People, Target, Old Navy, and Asos offered up t-shirts and other garments designed to celebrate a message of peace that is even more relevant today.

CHAINLINK NECKLACES

Speaking of other "chunky" trends, the chainlink necklaces is the neck accessory of choices this upcoming season. Some versions will come with a medallion, some without. Either way, this style carries its weight in gold.

VESTS (WAISTCOATS)

A variation on the suiting trend that you'll be seeing much more of this season, the vest suit is re-emerging favorite that can be worn with or without a jacket. It can also be worn with matching shorts or skirts. Either way, this trend definitely channels actress Diane Keaton in all the right ways.
