Fashion To Fall For: A Star-Studded Sneak Peak at 2017 Fall Fashion Trends
It’s hard saying adieu to summer - the endless lazy days lounging on the sun-soaked sands surfing it up, picnics in the park, and jammed-packed wild weekends filled with wanderlust. What’s even harder? Packing away all those high-waisted, shredded Daisy Duke’s, liberating tube tops, peek-a-boo bralettes, and comfy-cozy, foot-friendly furry sliders. Fret not, my friend. Because, the fall fashion forecast promises finds you’re going to fall head over high heels for.
Cooler weather? Hotter wardrobe. Steal these fresh-off-the-catwalk styles and make some room in your dresser drawers for these A-list digs.
The ubiquitous catwalks of last spring’s Fashion Week predicted the western front was on the horizon. Channel your inner cowgirl with cascading, kinetic fringe adorning purses, shirts, jackets, booties, belts, and leather vests.
Fun Faux Fur
A throwback to 70’s-inspired retro fur coats, whether pea style, full-length, or jacket, pervaded the hottest runways last spring. The featured classic furs resemble something straight out of a Woody Allen film.
Possibly roused from the 2016 presidential campaign, but the classic pantsuit has made a comeback – broad-shouldered and all. Choose from 70’s plaid, boxy silhouettes, or an assortment in Technicolor hues. Consider yourself one of the lucky few if you can find one that has the beloved clandestine 80s shoulder padding.
And, to top off the season’s retro reign are vintage hats, like brimmed caps, leather berets, bucket hats, including wintry weather-worthy shearling and fun fur classics.
Elevated Athleisure Looks
An ode to winter’s cool, cozy wear, the re-imagined track suit is set in sequins, designed of crushed velvet, and embellished with bling. And, it would be decidedly on-trend and fashion-forward to pair with your sexiest, tallest, reddest stilettos.
Not just a requisite treasured trimming in a stripper’s salacious collection of scantily-clad costumes, the Insta-fun fishnet fetish can be found anywhere from accenting office attire to destructed denim to fall’s flouncy, feminine floral dresses. Try a pin-perfecting pair in classic black, millennial pink, or eye-catching nude. Give your boxy, office trousers some much-needed flirty flair with white fishnet bootie socks.
Speaking of the fancy floral, designers once again stole from the romanticized embroidered evocations of the era, and plastered big, boisterous floral prints of the 60s and 70s on everything from dresses to blazers to trousers to mid-length skirts. Here, another budding summer into fall transition.
Brown is the New Black
The chocolate color, ala lip liner parading the pouts of the 90s, can be found in everything from the season’s nylon coats to waist-cinching wide belts to thigh-high boots to peek-a-boo bralettes. Also, power pantsuits, statement skirts, and ballet-beautiful dresses washed top-to-bottom in monochromatic crimson, millennial pink, and pale pink were also spotted on the runways.
Make it a layer of love and pile on the chiffon and lace from top to bottom with cute, sexy peek-a-boo bralettes and other modest under things peering out from underneath the sheer excitement of it all.
It’s like you never have to get out of bed (or your bathroom) with these cozy, comforter-like robes and PJs worn as ponchos and designed of the finest silk and satin fabrics garnished with stripes, prints, lace, and intricate embroidery. It’s the next best thing to working from home.
Ankle booties, over-the-knee, mid-calf, thigh-high, and lace-up, to-the-knee boot varieties all stepped onto the polished catwalks in crisp, clean winter whites reminiscent of 60s screen siren Raquel Welch and singing sensation Nancy Sinatra. Elastic, space age-esque, go-go “glitterati” styles will instantly transport you back to the future. No time capsule necessary (or disco ball or golden stripper pole).
Metallics, such as futuristic silver, gold, and rose gold, rocked the runways with space suit-like pants, booties, belts, hats, and sheath-like styling. Slouchy sequin, off-the-shoulder dresses and an indelible disco club-worthy suit covered with over one million Swarovski crystals are any fashion blogger’s kryptonite.
