Long gone are the beach talks and the barbeque pool parties, your summer romance, and park-dates’ afternoons; when the sun starts to set a bit sooner than usual, and we obtain longer nights with colder evenings. With Winter in full swing, shopping and catching up with the latest fashion trends is a must. Putting away the short-shorts and the bathing suits, fall gives us a chance to explore the new trends and ideas.
This winter we experience shades of warmer tones like Burgundy, also known as Oxblood, Gray, and Pastels. We revive the feelings of the 90’s and let our style get a bit more rebellious. Keep reading for the Top 7 trends of the season, and items you must have in your closet. You don’t want to “fall” behind don’t you?
1. Oxblood/ Burgundy
This color exudes passion, and this fall is made even more dramatic with deeper, darker undertones.
2. The Riot Girl
The smell of youth from the 90’s is back, letting our style show a rebellious statement even if we can’t. From the runway to the street, oversized layered clothing, slip dresses, beanies, comeback boots to plaid across all markets.
Exuding a “back-off” attitude with all the embellishments’ are alive in the runway, given the garments a bold yet luxurious look this fall. An embellishment detail added on to the pockets, hems, collars or anywhere in the garment will give it a personalized look and will make you unique and give you a distinct look from the rest of the crowd.
4. Mixed Textures
The most fun trend of all! Playing with fabrics never got easier; normally you must choose one novelty fabric and stick to the basics. It’s time to cheat and look fabulous while doing it! Play with your silks, metallic, leather, lace and many more textures to create a great look. Create combinations that take you from day to night if you’d wish, while keeping warm at the same time, just make sure they are all within the same color palette.
5. Gray for Black?
Seems like gray has found its way home this season. Going broad from hair wear to wool cocktail dresses, gray has expanded the trend. Designers this season have found yet a new way to portray cool contemporary looks by using different shades of grays into their color scheme.
6. All Pastel
7. Fur Coats
And our favorite trend of all… The FUR Coat!
So, hit the stores Lovelies and get your dose of winter style!
