This fall there are plenty of runway trends that easily translate into everyday wear (unlike those crazy jamiroquai hats Marc Jacobs had his models wear down the runway). Here are a few examples of pieces you can add to wardrobe to be trend this season and still re-wear and reinterpret for seasons to come.
This fall is the season of leather. If you don’t already own one good leather piece, now is the time to add one to your wardrobe. The runways were overrun with leather skirts, dresses, jackets, pants and accessories for fall and we’re not just talking boring blacks and browns. Leather was used in all sorts of unexpected colors and designs. It doesn’t matter if you decide to go with actual leather or just a leather inspired look, you can’t go wrong with it this fall. The above pants by Alexander Wang are a great way to get in on the leather look.
Black & Blue
Black and blue and stylish all over. Mixing black and blue is also a hot trend for fall. Most designers opted to mix a dark sapphire or navy blue with black, but some cobalts and purplish blues snuck in there too. This trend is easy to replicated and would work great for work and play. The above Rhinestone Knit Top by Alice + Olivia would go great with any black skirt or pants, but looks especially great with that leather skirt.
Winter whites were also very prominent on the runways making them a great choice this fall. Everything from sweaters and dresses to chic jackets were presented in snow whites. A sweater like they one shown by Milly above, which also happens to rock a leather collar, is a great way to work some white into your fall rotation. If you are worried the leather touch will limit your sweater’s versatility, there is an endless selection of plain white sweaters out there to chose from and you will be able to mix and match one with just about anything.
Varying shades of Burgundy are extremely popular this fall too! Whether you decide to opt for a spalsh of rich burgundy like the lovely scarf shown above by Oscare de la Renta or decide to commit to a entire garment in this rich color (like the dress shown in the cover image and pants shown below) you will certainly be making a wise style decision.
The “military” inspired trend is going strong again with many designers incorporating it into their designs. Although going full on “military” might be hard to pull off for street style, a coat like the one about by Burberry is a great way to work the style into your everyday wear.
Another fall trend is reptile print. A good example is these super chic jeans by 7 for All Mankind, which are doubly on trend in a great burgundy shade. If reptile print pants and tops are a bit too bold for you, you can try working the trend into your wardrobe with your accessories. A reptile print purse or pumps is not quite as flashy, but just as stylish.
