Hello Beauts! We are in August, the summer is coming to a close and autumn will be upon us. I don’t know bout you guys, but I’m ready for fall fashion!! So today, I wanted to give you the scoop on what we will be seeing on the racks and on the streets as we co exist with vibrantly colored leaves and hot apple ciders alike! 😀 I am super excited about the upcoming trends and color palettes coming this year and even more excited about the pieces that can be taken from summer to fall. I will talk about those next time (you wont have to wait 2 months, I promise).
So for this years fall season we will be seeing a lot of styles channeling the 70’s, but also weaving and lacing in some street style as well. The looks that were seen at this years NYFW (New York Fashion Week) consisted of polished gray pieces, eye catching capes, culottes (yes, they’re back), metallics, head to toe pastels, fringe, plaid pieces, shearling jackets and overcoats, and of course you can’t be a 70’s vixen without the bohemian vibe.
50 Shades of Gray
Personally, I am very excited for the gray color takeover. Its a neutral shade that compliments almost any piece and also can be worn as a sleek monochromatic emsemble. Looks like I finely need to wear those skinny trousers I have in the back of my closet.
The Cape Capades
No, Im no talking about any red riding hood capes or Batgirl capes. These pieces are definitley for the sophisticate. The fabrics vary from wool, tweed and sweaters and styles from prep to rockstar. So this particular trend I am very interested to see how it hits the streets and how it is worn with other pieces. But dont get it twisted, I will be adding one to my fall jacket lineup.
I honestly have to see it to believe it. Not my favorite thing to be brought back, but not knocking it either. A high waisted trouser culotte, chiffon plaid button down and oxfords seems like a future #ootd. Lol.
Metallics, Pastels, and Plaid
These are repeated trends but still favorites. Plaid will be seen in trousers, jackets and in more of a preppy/rockstar look. Bold pastel hues will be seen in head to ensembles. Can someone PLEASE just give me Ri Ri’s cropped baby blue mohair from her Only Girl vid?!?! Thanks in advance.
Metallics and sequins are usually staple pieces towards the holidays. Nothing makes you look more luminous near the Christmas tree than a shiny dress! But this time around, the trend is said to hit racks closer to thanksgiving, with a more liquid and futuristic vibe.
So….. I’m not a huge fan of shearling, never have been, so probably won’t be this season either. It’s not that I can’t appreciate the style, I just always like it more on others than I do on myself. I will say that I do believe that it is a practical investment, since it does always come back around. So finding a classic piece would be a good buy. Keep it in good condition, and store it wisely off season.
Fringe and Bohemian Beauts
This autumn season will still be full of fringe. However, we will be seeing it on bottoms of skirts or dresses, tweed fringe on sleeves and borders, and also long fringe on purses. The bohemian look for the season will consist of floral prints, maxi skirts, and a more structured, dressy take on the look. Which will be perfect for those up coming holiday parties and give that sequin cocktail dress a break.
Also keep in mind
Turtle necks, furs and lug soled shoes will be seen. So if you have it, pull it out and rock it!
Well, that’s it for today Beauts. I will follow up soon with all of our summer pieces we don’t have to pack away just yet. But so far, it looks as though this will be a fashionably fun fall season!!
Peace and so much love xo
