What is your favorite fall treat? Apple cider donuts or caramel-covered apples? I can never decide. But when comes to fashion, everything fall is a win for me.
With the new season upon us, I decided to give you a sneak peek into what’s going to be trending so you can be prepared and rock your fall closet like a celebrity on a world tour.
If I haven’t said it before, autumn is my favorite season. I love everything about it. The colors, the foods, the scents, and yes, even the cooler weather. I love that I get to change my wardrobe and wear layers again. As much as I love summer (and I do) it’s nice to change and show a little less skin, wear coats and heavier material and take those boots out of the closet. Fall fashion is just chic.
So what are the new trends this season?
If the major runway shows are any indication, animal prints are in! Zebra and leopard prints appeared in all major designers’ shows from Calvin Klein to Tom Ford.
You will see them pretty much anywhere from scarves, to trousers, to blouses…. you get the idea.
Leather, Leather, Leather
Leather is a dominating fabric from skirts to trousers to trench coats. Leather is a great material for fall, not only because it’s insolating keeping you warmer, but also elevates your look instantly.
Lots of Layering
Layering also got new tricks from designers this season, at times going to extremes, but you get the idea! Layering is a fun way to make a bold statement and the major designers were not afraid to play with it.
A hero item this season was the ankle midi skirt. This is a skirt that falls a little longer than those you already own, many times going underneath the knee line giving a more conservative look.
Western-style or cowboy style was a big trend back in the 90s and now it’s back. Get ready to see a lot western style inspired fashion especially in the shoe department.
Plaids patterns were also highlighted on the runway shows among all major designers along with very busy prints.
New versions of neons — a major 80s trend — are also making a comeback. Get ready to see new hues with fruitier tones such as watermelon and lemon/lime making for a delicious palette. Those strong neon tones go really well with neutral colors such as beige, black and gray when layering for a pop of color.
In the makeup department, brown shades are going to be the go-to shade along with very red lips.
Some gold shades are also coming strong this season, in the form of eye shadows and bronzers. If makeup is something you need, invest in some gold tones.
Even glitter is making a comeback, at least in the makeup department. Glitter makes up for a more dramatic look. A more daring version of the cat-eye was also displayed on the models in all major fashion shows.
These were the major highlights of the fashion shows. Which one are you going to try?
Happy shopping loves!
