Get a jump on fall fashion trends
We realize it’s still sweltering, but fashion waits for no one and it’s time to start talking about fall. From coats to boots and back again, fall trends are about bundling up without losing your stylish summer edge. So let’s dive in a take a sneak peek at some of the latest and greatest in the world of of-the-moment cold weather chic.
The rule of thumb for fall is oversizing. Everything is big, big, big. Think The Row’s chunky sweaters, the big bold robe coats from Chloe, Stella McCartney, and Altuzarra, even oversized frocks from Sarah Burton. Summer’s less-is-more look will turn to bigger-is-better before a single leaf falls.
A decidedly Western appeal and an all out 60′s mod vibe was seen on the most recent fall runways, from Cushni et Ochs and Tibi’s cowboy chic hats and jackets, to Valentino, Gucci and Saint Laurent’s 60′s-inspired colorful shift dresses paired with black tights and over-the-knee boots.
And finally turtle necks are taken to the extreme on the runways of Marc Jacobs, Helmut Lang and Chanel, with the cuts covering half the models faces and some going right up over their heads like a cowl. Covering up was never taken so literally as this over-the-top fall trend.
The idea of rocking any of this might be unappealing right now, but you’ll likely want to get a jump on things before the leaves start a fallen’.
