Bella Rose introduces Fall 2015 Trends
Labour Day has come and gone, meaning it’s time to say bye-bye to summer and hello to fall. ‘Tis the season to start prepping your fall closets with cape dresses, patchwork and windowpane plaid. Let’s just say your faux fur-trimmed coat will keep you looking chic as you sip that pumpkin spiced latte.
Feeling the transition pressure from summer to fall? Don’t worry. Let Monica Richards from ModaMob walk you through the biggest trends of the season, straight off the 2015 fall runways.
The Floor-Duster Coat: Last season’s statement coat trend has legs for fall, quite literally, and hemlines on the most eye-catching outerwear tumbled to the floor at Dries Van Noten,Calvin Klein Collection, and Chanel. Unless you stand over six feet tall in stockinged feet, then pulling off the look will require some towering heels.
A Touch of Fur: The monster furs that percolated on the street style blogosphere this winter were chopped and screwed for fall, and pieces of mink, fox, and Mongolian lamb fur were collaged onto everything from prim double-breasted coats at Prada to evening dresses at Proenza Schouler.
The Slip Dress. The nineties favorite was reimagined in a myriad of new and unexpected ways this season. At Céline, the slip was gently reconstructed and paneled in contrasting colors; at Prabal Gurung the dress gained a sexy double slit. Worn over pants and under an anorak at Rag & Bone, the traditional lace-trimmed piece provided a clever dusting of femininity to the layered-up winter look.
The Statement White Blouse. There’s something so alluring about the deceptive simplicity of a white blouse. From high, Victorian frilled collars at Altuzarra to waiter-inspired bow ties at Chanel, from ruffled sleeves at Michael Kors to sheer thrills at Rodarte, the runways were full of reasons to go back and embrace a classic.
