The start of New York Fashion Week signifies the official start of fall for the fashion world. Even though the heat is still sweltering, now is the perfect time to figure out how to incorporate the latest fall trends into your daily wardrobe. With a little adaptation and your own personal touch, you can take these trends from the runway to everyday.
1. Military Anorak Jackets
The military trend has had a huge presence in fashion over the last four years. The trend is continually reappearing on the runways and is solidifying itself as a perpetual presence in both fall and spring wardrobes. Use this trend to transition from summer to fall by making the military anorak jacket your go-to piece as the temperature begins to drop. Pair it with black leggings and a pair of riding boots and add a scarf as the weather gets cold.
Oxblood is the it-color this fall. This rich burgundy shade popped up all over the runways in everything from dresses and jackets to purses and shoes. Pair this color with black or khaki or be adventurous and wear it head-to-toe like the models did on the runways.
3. Daring Prints
Designers are showcasing tons of prints this fall, from dresses in fall floral to jackets and pants in matching patterns. Make this trend more wearable by pairing one printed statement piece, be it a jacket, pants or a dress, with neutral colors.
This ornate, embroidered pattern is the perfect way to make any outfit elegant and grand. Baroque, an artistic style that emerged in the 17th century, was reinterpreted on the runways and has become an essential addition to anyone’s holiday wardrobe. Add gold jewelry to make this statement design even more luxurious.
The fall runways showed that leather is for more than just jackets. This material was used for everything from pants to dresses in colors like khaki, black and fall’s signature color, oxblood. Incorporate this edgy piece into your wardrobe by pairing leather pants with a silk blouse, cable knit sweater or simple t-shirt to look like a model off duty. Make sure that the fit is impeccable and keep the colors neutral in order to make this look more classic.
