5 High Fashion Trends to Try This Fall!
After several seasons of skinny styles, pantsuits finally relax this season. Countless designers featured relaxed-fit jacket-and-pants ensembles in fall-appropriate fabrics, like tweeds and wools in shades of brown and gray. To top your suit off with style, take cues from the Derek Lam and Carolina Herrera runways. Lam opted for a more traditional take on this trend, pairing his suits with shell tops, button down blouses, and crewneck sweaters. For a more fashion-forward look, pick a matching or monochrome top, like those seen on Carolina Herrera’s runway.
A cold weather wardrobe staple, turtlenecks appeared on countless fall 2015 runways, and ranged in style from chunky to lightweight, opaque to semi-sheer. Derek Lam offered a colorful spin on this classic style by pairing a fuchsia and black color-blocked knit turtleneck with a rust-orange wide leg suit – another fall fashion must have.
In a slightly sexier take on this trend, Zimmerman presented a cowl-neck lace turtleneck with wide leg slacks
and a long, wool coat, while TOME’s cozy turtlenecks looked downright risqué when worn over their semi-sheer lace skirt. Want to try this racy style at home? Be sure to pick an extra-long, thigh-skimming turtleneck top.
Spring’s biggest trend remains chic for fall, as designers continue to seek inspiration in the bohemian fashions of the 1970s. While spring 2015’s bohemian styles manifested sheer, flowing fabrics, feathers, and metallic leathers, fall’s boho-inspired designs feature rich, dark suedes, fringe, and embroidered and fur-covered extras. Anna Sui, Rebecca Minkoff, and BCBG Max Azria conjured the free-spirited silhouettes of the ‘70s with miniskirts and mini dresses, thigh-high boots, and lush, long coats.
Neon colors like juicy citron, shocking pink, and electric blue gave vibrancy to many fall 2015 runways. To make these bright shades fall-friendly, designers paired their neon fashions with neutral separates and accessories. To easily incorporate neon pieces into your cold-weather wardrobe, seek inspiration from Milly, who featured oh-so- New-York black and gray ensembles with pops of color in the form of neon jackets and skirts. If you’re feeling bold, pair brilliant neon separates with pale colors, like baby blue and pastel purple, as seen in TOME’s fall presentation.
From jackets to skirts, and pants to dresses, leather was everywhere at New York Fashion Week – and the blacker, the better. For a fresh take on this enduring trend, take a cue from Nicole Miller and pair your favorite leather jacket with a printed miniskirt and contrasting patterned tights. Leather pants, another fall wardrobe staple, also make a comeback this season, and Rebecca Minkoff evoked rock ‘n’ roll glam by pairing her leather pants with a crisp white blazer – and little else. For a lady-like take on this bad girl trend, follow the lead of Vivienne Tam, who adapted her lavish leathers into fit-and-flare quilted dresses.
