Fall '16 Trend Report
FALL '16 TREND REPORT
FLORALS FOR FALL... GROUNDBREAKING
THIS FALL IS ALL ABOUT TAKING OUR FAVORITE 90’S TRENDS CHOPPED AND SKREWED. VELVET AND LACE MAKE A SPECIAL APPERANCE THIS FALL ALONG WITH AUTUMNAL FLORALS---CARRYING OVER FROM THE SUMMER WHIMSY THAT WE CANT GET ENOUGH OF.
My personal favorite resurgence trend of the season is a modern twist on the late 90’s. Crushed velvet, silk, lace, full denim fits, vampire tones, florals, kick ass shoes and CHOKERS…LOTS OF CHOKERS! This is where you get the carryover of whimsy from the summer season, with the natural and dark tones we love in a perfect mash up. The perfect balance of hard and soft, girly and bad ass! Think buffy the vampire slayer, spice girls and destiny’s child in all its chic 90’s glory.
Duh, it’s fall. No, but really, layering is taking on a life of its own this fall. This type of layering is not because there is a brisk wind out. This trend is for fashion pros to show how well they can put together a complex outfit displaying all of the current trends. I would advise against extreme layering if you are not completely confident in your skills (not to worry I will be posting an entirely separate layering How-to).
Distressed and Destroyed
And I am not just talking about your jeans. Destroy it all. Hats, shirts, hoodies, jeans, jackets, shoes, denim, silk, leather (GRAFITTI IT)… You get the point. We can thank the everlasting Yeezy Season for the lasting “hobo chic” trend, however you don’t have to pay Yeezy prices to get the look ( How-to coming soon ;). Along with this trend are the fringe jeans which are my absolute fav.
Let’s not leave out our beloved fall pieces that belong in your closet no matter what year
Knits: This season we will see knit take on all different forms and we will embrace it!
Leather: If you want to make sure you are right on trend make sure it has embellishment (fur, shearling or lace) Make your leather jacket into a sexy top by wearing it off the shoulders.
Bomber Jackets: Last fall bomber jackets made a huge comeback and they are sticking around for 2016. You can find them in all different shapes, fabrics, colors and price points, their versatile nature makes them a must have jacket.
Trench Coats: This goes hand in hand with fall layering perfection. Trench coats can instantly elevate your outfit whether it’s dressy or casual. You could also rock this jacket off the shoulders to sass it up.
