But are you ready or what? Sorry not sorry to all of you who are still enjoying the very best of summer, but with fall being a few weeks away, we’re gonna have to track this post down asap! Fashion trends fall 2016? Hello!
A good amount of the world population is returning to the office every fall, but this fall in particular, why not do it on a higher fashion level? Do the old office wear but do it better that is. Pinstripes, pencil skirts and pantsuits are all trending this season. We spotted the office wear at Max Mara (see slideshow), Calvin Klein and J.Crew!
Back to the future
For a while we genuinely thought we’d be spared the comeback of the 80’s, but just kidding folks, the 80’s fashion is back and it’s back big time! Oversized puffy pieces, one shoulder, shining materials and just over the top of everything. If you want to go all the way, don’t worry, the 80’s makeup is trendy too. Fendi, Saint Laurent (below) and Isabel Marant all took it time traveling!
We’ve been waiting for velvet to make its way back into business, and after the years of doing silky slip dresses, could we please have a bloom of velvet? The 16th century artistocrats used velvet and so can we! And as we said, velvet is close to the elegance of silk (aka the pajama trend), so don’t be surprised if you see your high street shop filled with luxurious, casual and comfy velvet pieces this fall. Thank you H&M, Rochas and Alberta Ferretti (below)!
We love when fashion goes a bit bonkers. This fall designers have lengthened the sleeves, replaced blazers with hoodies and used awkward color combos like pink and yellow (a “norm no” but a fashion yes). We saw Delpozo (below) doing pink and yellow and Alexander Wang working the hoodies!
Up in the sky
We like the thought of being edgy pilots in an even edgier time. The aviator trend is not dark blue suits and a hat like today’s pilots, but the chic retro ones. We’re talking aviator sunnies, oversized shearling jackets but also the tan colors. We don’t know about you guys but we shall be aiming for the fashion sky this fall with sky fashion. Thank you Lacoste, Vfiles (below) and Michael Kors!
Fur is a major trend this season and the only relevant response to it is to use faux fur. No discussion, no arguments, it’s a fact. But we adore faux fur, we love fluffy statement materials! And dyed fur in green, midnight blue, burgundy and pink are just too chic for the seasons. Faux fur or no fluff at all! We saw Michael Kors and Prabal Gurung (below) doing the faux fur!
