Featured Designer, Shoshanna & Fall Trends
As the heat and humidity of late summer still sizzles, the fashion trends for fall have begun to be revealed. The trends for 2016 will give our fellow fashionistas something to look forward to as the temperatures fall with the leaves.
What are the fashion trends for Fall 2016?
Vogue noted the bevy of leopard print coats on the runway, as well as pastel palettes in suits and separates, and fur or shearling trimmed boxy lush toppers that will make you wish for cold weather. Suits in pin-stripes, checks, floral patterns and crimson red will set you up for the next board meeting. After hours, the silky or embellished slip dress comes out of the bedroom for a night out on the town. From head to toe denim to airy floral or print bohemian dresses, next season’s fashion offers contrasts for any style, occasion or mood. All fashion experts agree that statement fur coats and accessories is the overstated symbol of Fall 2016.
Elle Magazine says velvet, bell sleeves and corsets reminiscent of the Renaissance and early Baroque eras will be trending, as well as statement furs. Also on many runways, they saw retro capelets, gray plaid school girl style dresses, pin-striped suits, 80’s power one shoulder dresses, patent leather trench coats, navy style overcoats and sparkly coats, dresses and skirts to add a bit of shine to any outfit. Don’t forget accessories like guitar straps on bags, statement chokers, and chunky sole boots in honor of David Bowie.
Glamour says nearly every collection featured the muted orange color, the ’90s mini-skirt suit, and a focus on visible seams, deconstruction of garments and connected panels, as well as reconstructed denim. “Designers are reinventing denim up by cutting and sewing different pairs of jeans together to create a unique, artsy vibe.” Shearling trimmed leather jackets and coats in all shapes and cuts were seen on the runway. Logo sweats are back! From oversized hoodies to boxy sweatpants, your weekend wear is bound to be very cool, and yes—very comfortable. Dressed up bohemian, floral, frilly maxis can be dressed up for a wedding or event, and then dressed down with ankle boots and leather jacket.
