Trend Report: Fall 2015

03-05-fall-2015-runway-trend-report-boho_Fotor_Collage

The onset of fall is kind of a love/hate relationship for me. On the one hand, fall is my favorite season. I look forward to fall for all the layering, jackets, scarves, boots, and fashion in general. On the other hand, the end of summer is a little sad because summer is just so FUN. It is especially hard living in LA where we don’t really get to experience fall properly. It will literally be some version of summer until about Christmas when the leaves might turn brown and fall. Please, if you live somewhere other than Southern California, soak up and enjoy fall for me, I’m totally jealous of you. Even though the wish for fall weather is a dream my heart makes, I’m gonna talk fall fashion because fall fashion is the mother of all fashion seasons. Seriously, if it wasn’t, why would all the fashion magazines publish 500+ page issues for September? If I could sum up the trends for this fall, I would have to say that most of the trends are inspired by the 70’s. Read on and get the low down on what is hot this fall!

70’s/BOHO

Like I said before, the 70’s are huge this season. I am loving all the boho inspired looks that are coming down the runways. Seriously, who knew ponchos were going to make a comeback? I’m really hoping that my poncho from 2005 is in some box in my storage…I might have to go hunting for that tomorrow! With this season’s boho, think rich colors, patchwork, tribal prints, grandma knits, or if you dare, just go full on electric orange-disco fringe like that great Balmain dress.

THE MODERN MOD

Even though the 70’s are having a huge moment right now, don’t count out the 60’s! Mod is huge this fall, but with a more modern twist. To keep from looking like you’re an extra in an Austin Powers movie, mix “mod” with modern pieces, like knee-high lace up boots, or pieces in contrasting colors. Thigh high boots are a huge part of this look and I am dying to get my hands on some. If you have the money, the Stuart Weitzman options below are AMAZING. I am still on the hunt for a great affordable pair, so, stay tuned for that! πŸ˜‰

THE NEW VICTORIAN

Victorian inspired fashion means a lot of lace, high necks. and lace-ups galore. For me, Victorian clothing always brings to mind Jane Austen novels, which is why I think I love it so much. It is a bit of a throw back to a by-gone era that I will never experience but have definitely wished I could see for myself. If they could just invent time machines already, that would be great! Until then, I’ll just channel my inner Elizabeth Bennet with some Victorian- inspired fashion.

ECLECTIC + ECCENTRIC

This fall, you have permission to mix prints, colors, and textures to your heart’s delight. This look is kind of inspired by your grandmother, but its a little bit more quirky and offbeat. Take your print mixing to the next level this season by mixing three prints instead of two, or incorporating colors that almost clash with what you are wearing. Keep it polished by sticking with lady-like, classic silhouettes.

CROPPED PANTS

When I look at this season’s crop of cropped pants, I have flashbacks of getting too tall for my jeans growing up and my mom telling me that I looked like I was “waiting for a flood.” This season, you want to look like you are waiting for a flood. Hopefully for us here in SoCal where we have been drought-ridden for a couple of years, this supposed “El Nino Year” will cause us to have floods…we need it! If this is the case, these cropped jeans, trousers, and pants will come in handy. If you don’t live in a flood-prone area, this style of pant is great for showing off your cute ankle boots. Cropped pants are great in any cut…skinny, straight, wide leg, boyfriend, or flare…literally any cut of pants goes with this, so experiment and see what works for you.

TURTLENECKS

Who knew the turtleneck would make a comeback? I definitely got rid of all mine years ago, so I will have to stock up again, which is fine because there are a couple great ways to do the turtleneck these days. You can either go super thin-knit to layer under a tunic dress or other sweater, or go the other extreme and wear a super chunky-knit, over-sized turtleneck. If this winter is as cold as last winter, the turtleneck will be a great go-to for those super frigid days.

CARWASH SKIRTS

This might be a little weird, but this year’s version of the ongoing fringe trend looks like the crazy twirly things that clean your car in the drive-thru car wash. I would love to get my hands on this trend, but unfortunately couldn’t find an affordable substitute. Not to worry though, last year’s “normal” fringe is still going strong, so shop those looks below.

Fall 2015 Trends: Fringe
BLACK ON BLACK

All black outfits really aren’t anything new, but this fall they had a strong showing on the runways. You can never go wrong with all black, which is why I am glad that monochromatic black outfits are such a trend. I like to keep all black ensembles interesting by mixing different textures and fabrics together to make something unique.

FLARES

Remember how i said that the 70’s were huge this fall? The huge comeback of the flare pant is a testament to the fact that the 70’s are here to stay, at least for now. One thing that is great about flares is that they are flattering on almost any body type. Unless you are going for that cropped look, (see above) make sure that you pick a pair that fits you perfectly. One of my favorite styling tips is to get flares that are just a bit too long for me so that I can wear heels with them. When your flares meet the floor or almost meet the floor and you are wearing heels, you can look wonderfully and impossibly tall and lean, which is something I aspire to on the regular.

DUSTER COATS

If this winter is anything like last winter, you are going to want some serious shelter, aka, a great coat. Get your hands on a duster coat. It’s a no-brainer: the longer the coat, the warmer you will be right? If you live in a less frigid climate, go for a duster sweater for a similar, but less heavy look.
