We love a great runway show: the lights, the music, the models, the beautiful clothes, and all of the excitement and buzz generated by the crowd.
Then there’s the glamour and exclusivity, the appeal and intrigue, and the shock and awe that so often accompanies a live show. And although most of us may never make it front row at New York, Paris, Milan, or London Fashion Week, we can still follow and wear the latest trends. For us, successfully pulling off high fashion and celebrity looks is not only fun, but a great way to feel in touch with the most popular styles. Fortunately, we’ve got a rundown of four of the latest fall trends that we think you’ll want to be wearing.
We are definitely a fan of this rich material for autumn. Not only did Vogue’s team weigh in on the trend, but even Valentino and Bottega Veneta incorporated the opulent fabric into their fall collection. This lush material is perfect for turning heads in curve-hugging dresses at holiday fetes, or simply lounging by the fire in your velvet pajamas. For office to weekend attire, pick up a blazer clad in velvet for a go-with-everything kind of piece.
Done Up Denim
Lyst’s team of experts predict detail-oriented denim as being a hot commodity for fall. Not only is there a buzz among other high-style outlets, but the runways proved it. Designers like Roberto Cavalli and Balenciaga both showed off some jazzed-up jeans, therefore, it’s recommended that you keep yours around this autumn. Whether you snag a few new pairs, or mod your current denim to match the latest trends, you can expect to see two-tone looks, interesting fray placement, and shadow hems.
The weighty textile is another opulent look that’s back on the map for fall. Big names, like Oscar de la Renta, Dolce & Gabbana, and Gucci, all presented some form of the heavy, upholstery-like material that’s actually quite perfect for keeping warm in autumn. Whether you prefer the look of a brocade kimono-style jacket, or wish to keep it classic in a pea coat, there’s a cut for every taste. Pair either of those with sleek, pointed toe pumps and cigarette pants for an out of this world ensemble.
This casual or dressy cape trend is one that comes highly recommended by writers at InStyle, who happen to agree that this is not hot for fall, but also the perfect addition to any wardrobe. Although designers Derek Lam, Tommy Hilfiger, and Missoni all jumped aboard the cape bandwagon, you don’t have to look like a runway model to pull off this trend. Perfect with everything from jeans to dresses, this topper is excellent for adding the finishing touch to a perfectly layered look.
From work to weekend, casual to dressy, and designer to affordable, we’ve got all of the bases covered in this fall fashion must-haves roundup. We hope this has inspired you to create some new favourite looks for autumn, while also feeling great in the latest trends. With just a few pieces to incorporate, these easy-to-wear concepts will add the touch of trendy your wardrobe’s been waiting for.
