There are a variety of fall trends to try. Fall is a season that allows for a variety of couture and styles. Some days are warm and allow for more revealing pieces, yet some are chilly and require more layers. No matter what the temperature here are some key fall trends to try.
The 1980’s have influenced the 2016 fall season tremendously. There are still hints of the 1970’s appeal of seasons past, but this year it is all about the extravagant and chaotic patterns of the era of Madonna. Things to focus on are rock and roll inspired pieces, leather, fishnets, and gritty graffiti. Animal tones are wildly popular this season and make us reminiscent of the good-old days. Leather skirts are often seen with zippers to give them a stylish edge. A leather skirt might be paired with a transparent tank or anything that has big accents.
A Pleated Classic
Pleating was evident in the summer fashion lines, but has transitioned itself in fall as well. This trend is kept classy by making the only appeal the actual pleats; patterns are simple and often solid. There have been some designers to use dual tone colors on their pleated apparel. It is a look that appeals to any age and dress size.
Velvet’s dream of becoming a trendy fabric again has come true, just like the classical tale of the Velveteen Rabbit. This fall you can find an abundance of velvet in all sorts of items. Velvet was seen all over the runway in dresses, pant suits, tops, and gowns. The lure of velvet is due to its ability to be intriguing. There are many styles that feature embroidered patterns. This fabric is soft to the touch while also offering a slight shimmer. It is also a fall favorite because of its added ability to keep you warm.
A Suede Situation
Another wildly indulgent fabric in fall trends to try is suede. This material is a leftover of 2015 and also too familiar in the 1970’s. Even though this is a blast from the past, designers everywhere are using it to make pants, dresses, jackets, shoes, purses, and more! It really is a perfect option for winter and it also has an undeniable softness. Some designers have been using denim blue colors. Skirts are falling to mid-calf at midi heights and showing off a modest sense of calm. Other designers are inspired to create paint suits that nurture this season’s masculine appeal.
Texture Me Crazy
Texture is so popular in fall trends this year. There is the ever proactive mesh fabric that is sweeping the runway. The mesh brings us back to the punk Goth era and can be seen in turtlenecks, skirts, and dresses. Fall also features the use of embroidery on different fabrics (i.e. velvet), and lace accents. Lace and embroidery are nothing new this season, but they remain a vital part to deciding which fall trends to try.
No matter what style you go with, just remember to incorporate these trends in a way that stays true to yourself and who you are. You don’t need to try all of fall’s trends to be stylish. Be creative and always be confident in what you wear.
