Although we hate to admit it, August is upon us and Summer is almost over! But with the end of our warm Summer days at the beach, comes the excitement of Fall fashion. The only thing that truly draws us out of our summertime sadness, is the thought of the new season’s styles. We are always looking forward to boots, cozy sweaters, and chunky knit scarves in the crisp Autumn days. Along with these classic Fall staples, we also love to sprinkle in some new and daring trends. Discover some of our trends to try come September and October:
Game on! Sportswear
From jersey inspired dresses to bright varsity stripes, Fall is full of sports inspired looks. You don’t have to be sporty or athletic to try on this trend, you just have to be confident. Looks like this Tom Ford sequin dress, are influenced by a sports jersey, yet they still maintain a feminine, cool edge. There is nothing cooler than the casual glamour of this jersey look.
We love the way this fashionista dressed up her jersey with a leather skirt and sleeveless coat in this street style look!
Another athletic inspired trend hitting the streets is stylized sneakers. Designers merged comfort and style on the runways, pairing funky sneakers with high fashion. Sneakers are no longer just for working out, they are now elevated to the level of luxe fashion.
In fact, even Chanel sent sneakers down the runway! Who knew funky kicks could be couture!!
Magic Eye Prints
We all remember staring at the dizzying Magic Eyes books trying to decipher the hidden image as children. Now designers are translating those prints into a more mature all but still dizzying look. While the prints are not all the same from runway to runway, they are all founded on the idea of bright colors and geometric shapes.
This model wears a magic eye print with a 60’s feel down the Prada runway. If head to toe print is too overwhelming for you, try a skirt or top paired with basic pieces.
Say Something: Statement Bags
Let your bag do the talking! This season you are going to see a lot of handbags and clutches with graphics and bold prints that make a statement. These Karen Walker clutches are speaking loud and clear.
Tony the Tiger also thinks statement bags are greattTT! Grab this kitschy tote from Anya Hindmarch and you’ll add a little fun to any outfit.
Shades of Gray
If you haven’t heard, gray is the new black! Designers are growing tired of the classic black and white, and they are mixing it up this season with shades of gray. It was seen on the runways in a variety of shades. Some designers even showed mono-colored ensembles down the catwalk.
If you are feeling daring (but not too daring!), try a monochromatic look. To keep the outfit interesting, try pieces in different textures like the outfit above.
Some of the looks we love are bold and some are simple. Fall has trends to fit every mood and every style, and we can’t wait to try them on. There is no doubt that we will still hold on to every sunny minute left in summer, but with these trends in mind our transition to Fall will be little less painful.
