Fall is upon and and we are going to take a look at five fall trends that I've found. We're checking out: monochromatic looks,leather,velvet,mid-calf length, and glitter. Monochromatic is a wonderful look for fall. Diane Von Furstenberg used different shades of blue,all the way down to the accessories to make an interesting look. Using entirely different shades is something easy and probably already in your closet. Alice and Olivia used too matching suit-like pieces mixed with a darker texturized piece to look cool and put together. Chado Ralph Rucci was very into texture in this monochromatic look. I love all the close shades but the fur,sheer,and suede make the reds look less similar. It would be hard to wear all those textures in different colors without looking circus-y. Monochromatic looks are fresh for fall.Leather has been hot for a while; it's still going strong. 3.1 Phillip Lim used a lovely shade of brown. Alexander Wang paired leather pants with a jacket that contains leather accents. Double leather creates a tough look. Balmain created a leather suit. Leather or pleather adds toughness to fall clothing. It would look great juxtaposed with a girly skirt or dress.Mid-Calf skirt are another carry-over trend from spring. The McQueen skirt is interesting because it uses zippers to go from a pencil silhouette to a flare. Chloe has a flowy hippie skirt that would look great with boots. The straight skirt from Cynthia Rowley can go from business to pleasure easily. Mid-calf skirt will be hot for fall and they will provide a bit more warmth. Velvet is such a rich fabric and perfect for fall. Cynthia Rowley combined it with a sheer. While, Givenchy used it in a mini skirt for an accent. Proenza Schouler has put a simple dress in a wild zig zag velvet print. Velvet looks great in prints,burn-out and just a simple solid.Glitter and sparkles may be my favorite trend. Alice and Oliva did a simple ballerina dress with a glittered top. Alexander Wang used glitter to make pants that I, a staunch dress and skirt wearer, wants to wear. The pants are so Bowie. Monique Lhuillier used subtle sheen in a girly dress.
I hope you enjoyed this look at fall trends. Some trends can be combined think: monochrome and glitter,velvet and mid-calf,leather and velvet. The possibilities are endless! Stay tuned for part two where I find shop pieces to fit into these trends.
