The temperatures outside are quickly dipping, and while you can carry through your summer wardrobe into the fall with clever layering, it’ll only go so far before a fall breeze rushes you indoors again. This fall’s trends saw everything from animal print to trippy psychadelic print. You don’t have to re-imagine your whole wardrobe in order to play up some key trends and colors, however. A smart investment in a solid piece or two that can be incorporated into your everyday rotation will elevate your look well into next spring, especially because most of these trends are building themselves into S/S15 collections.
Snazzy mesh fabrics, fleece and jersey pieces look effortless and comfy this season.
Chic, over-sized capes and ponchos made a bold statement, especially in this season’s rich burgundy reds.
Fun and Colorful Furs
Furs in animal print, colorful patchwork, and bold hues popped all over the runways at Fall ’14 presentations. Keep things animal friendly by opting for faux pieces.
Oversized (and Long) Coats
The oversized silhouettes plays well with beautiful layering as well as menswear inspired pieces this fall. The coat will carry you well into the spring and into the new year of trends easily.
Classically tailored ensembles are not only trends, they’re pieces that should be staples in anyone’s closet.
Fantastically Romanticized Dresses
Fairy-tale inspired delicate evening-wear stunned on the runways with sheer layers and plenty of ethereal inspiration.
Relaxed silhouettes and ethnic elements adorned many of the shearling coats this season. Choose a wild piece or opt for simplicity to tone down the volume on the trend.
Sheath and trapeze silhouettes, mini-skirts, wild prints, and pastel colors will be a trend through the fall well into next summer, so pick up a piece or two to rotate.
Smooth velvets usually feel goth-like, but this fall they emerge luxuriously draped and in plenty of brighter hues.
Knits aren’t just for scarves and sweaters. Full body suits hit the runways, swathed in cocoon-like sweaters.
