Welcome to the Jungle:

The runways in Milan, NYC, London and Paris took a walk on the wild side, as models adorning animal print pieces roamed through the audiences. Leopard print has already become the dominant player this fall in all fashion pieces ranging from blouses to boots. However the focus of this trend goes beyond just leopard print, snake patterns, zebra stripes, cheetah patterns and faux-croc skin will be a part of the urban jungle prowl.

 

Check Mate:

Animal print has a fierce rival in terms of patterns this fall/winter season. Plaid, Hound’s-tooth, tartan and Prince of Wales heritage are all included in fashion’s big thirst for check patterns. The beauty of check patterns comes from its versatility, ranging from a sophisticated Prince of Wales heritage patterned blazer to boldly colored plaid for a 90’s inspired Clueless look, this pattern crosses a wide spectrum of styles.

 

Shine Bright Like a Diamond:

Catch attention and illuminate the room with glossy silvers and multi-dimensional embedded sequins, beads or gems as a part of your wardrobe this season. High-shine dresses and skirts this end of the year season are a harmonious blend of futuristic sci-fi meets the glam of vintage nightlife. This trend is not limited to just sewn-in twinkling materials and metallic, glossy vinyl and latex seized fall/winter fashion week in broad spectrum of colors.   

 

Leather Up:

Leather and faux leather have been one of main reoccurring fundamentals of fall fashion. However leather has gone beyond jackets and expanded into the domain of long Matrix-like coats and dresses that ooze sex appeal. The much-loved fall material will take form in a variety of colors as well as be used in suit silhouettes.

 

Layers Upon Layers:

For this up and coming winter, designers have played with various textures in fabrics and the volume of clothing for a newer take on the art of layering. Unconventional combinations such as spaghetti strap tops over knit sweaters or massive scarfs belted over trenches are some of the ways fashion is experimenting with layers. However it’s not all about the looks, Layering has ventured from the aesthetic side back to practicality and protecting oneself from the outside elements. Bundle up with puffy parkas and oversized coats to a point the true shape of your bodyline is obscured and where the cold from this upcoming winter hardly penetrates through.

 

50 Shades of Brown:

Undoubtedly, brown is the new black this fall and winter season as an entire spectrum of varying shades of browns give off a flair reminiscent of the 70s. Cold weather compliments the new onslaught of brown colors ranging from beige to burnt mocha in this seasons popular winter wear. Brown colors have been a staple in some of the recent coat trends with shearling, suede, and leather jackets, as well as both chunky and slim knitwear. Don’t be discouraged to go out in a fully brown ensemble of different shades to fully embrace this trend.

 

80s Baby:

The 80s are back with a whole assortment of vibrant and chic styles that 80s babies will feel nostalgic over. 80s glam meets current day modernity as the power shoulder-tiny waist structure returns in many suits blazers and even dresses. Along with the comeback of exaggerated bodylines, flared pants accompany this trend in both jeans and slacks. Neon and electric hues have made a huge comeback across many platforms of style from some of the biggest designers such as Saint Laurent and Miu Miu.  

 

Smooth as Silk:

The traditional and beautifully intricate in design silk scarfs have been an iconic fashion trend for decades. Silk scarfs have notably been transformed from being an elegant accessory to a draped handkerchief-style dress or lightweight top while still sporting designs similar to Hermes or Gucci. Before taking a full plunge into this trend, it is always good to try out the classical look with either a printed-silk headscarf or scarf draped around the shoulders with some big “don’t talk to me” shades.
