Straight From The Runway
I love pouring over sites and runways to find you the best, most wearable fashion trends each season! This fall has some exciting trends I think will be easy to incorporate into your wardrobe. There are always a TON of new trends, but I wanted to highlight the most fun and wearable in this post. I may not include trends that have been trending for years, like animal prints, for example.
#1 | Color Trend: Green
Pistachio green is probably the most popular color of green seen on the runways. I think it’s gorgeous! Green is one of those colors that anyone can wear. It looks beautiful on blondes, redheads, brunettes, etc. If the pistachio green isn’t your favorite, try a Kelly green or deep forest green!
#2 | High Shine
Think metallics, lamé, sequins, or pretty much anything with a little shine! I think this trend is so fun and a perfect one to try this holiday season. A chic lamé top for date night will channel your inner 70’s siren! Within this trend there are microtrends. Lamé is a huge one. Dark metallics were all over the runways. And GOLD was a big color within the high shine trend!
#3 | Seeing Spots
This trend is no surprise. We’ve been seeing leopard all over the place. What’s new are spots and leopard print in different colors and textures. Another trend I noticed was long leopard, duster coats! An easy way to try this chic print trend is with a leopard scarf or maybe some pumps! If you are feeling a bit more daring, a leopard cardigan or duster coat. For leopard-print inspiration check out Brandon Maxwell Fall RTW Collection.
#4 | Pleated Skirts
This pleated skirt trend is super wearable and it will be great for fall! You can pair a pleated skirt with a cami and moto or a thin sweater and blazer. On the runways, many pleated skirts are styled with high neck blouses and blazers…maybe a new workwear idea? I never met a high-neck blouse I didn’t like. Be careful with pleated skirts as they can add bulk around the tummy. Shapewear can take care of that!
#5 | Structured Suiting
Suiting gets an update…again! I feel like the suit gets an update every season, and I’m not complaining! This season, you’ll see built-up shoulders, cinched waists, more three-piece ensembles, and oversized tailoring. One of my favorite collections for suit-spiration is Dolce & Gabbana…all of the suiting is gorgeous and modern.
#6 | Fabric Trend: Satin
Not just satin… satin EVERYTHING from suits, to skirts, to dresses…you name it! The only downside of the satin trend is that this fabric usually takes a little more care. And, it’s often very unforgiving, showing every lump and bump. But I think if you are strategic with your satin buys, you’ll fall back in love with this luxe fabric!
#7 | Fabric Trend: Lace
Another fabric trend that is having a moment still in fashion…is lace! Again, you can find this feminine and beautiful fabric on everything from dresses, to subtle lace overlays on tops, to lace skirts. One of my best selling tops of the season and one of my all-time favorite blouses is this WAYF high neck, lace top. I LOVE it! It’s an easy way to wear this trend.
#8 | Dark Florals
I’ve never been a huge floral lover but I dark florals are changing my tune! In darker tones, floral prints become more sophisticated and edgier. Florals can be tricky. Make sure you place on the part of your body that you want to highlight or add volume to. If you wear a dark floral dress, you can add shape by wearing a waist belt, or look for dresses with waist defining details and interesting necklines. If you love prints and patterns, look at Richard Quinn’s Fall RTW collection for inspiration!
#9 | Modern Tweed
Tweed got a major update this fall! We’re not just seeing it in the classic Chanel suit anymore. It was all over the runways! Tweed dresses, oversized capes, belted coats, pleated skirts, etc. There are also different scales of tweed and tweed mixes as well as head-to-toe tweed. To try this trend in real life, a chic tweed coat might be fun. Or even a tweed skirt!
#10 | Edgy Romance
Black lace, exposed boning, bustiers, puffy sleeves, Victorian necklines, and ruffles. It’s a fun combination of edge and feminine romance. It’s definitely a dramatic trend and I love it! I also think it can be a little sexy. The easiest way to wear this trend would be a lace puff sleeve blouse like this one (comes in white and black).
