Although fall trends are anything but that! Color palettes shift towards darker shades with bold pop colors, prints and mixed fabrics. Designers are incorporating both old and new school elements to their collections.
Denim, denim and more denim
Denim is back in focus for the season with cropped styles, unfinished hems and destruction. Statement denim is seen throughout the market from numerous brands. Patchwork, embroidered details, embellishments and two-tone fabrics are just a few of the additions to basics. The relaxed boyfriend and mid-rise carry over from summer as well. True Religion, NYDJ and Rag & Bone have options that are right on trend.
Men, denim fits are structured in the leg with slim straights and tapers being the go-to. There is a big focus on textures and fabrics. Brands are adding to fabrications, lending a softer hand and more comfortable fits. Coated denim and dark washes offer versatility and can be paired to fit any occasion.
Against traditional fall shades, red is the pop color of the season. Usually a holiday wear, this hue is entering the scene a few months early styled in head-to-toe ensembles.
Ready or Not…
There are a lot of updates to what we consider basic fall fashions:
- Silk fabrics are seen across both sides. Ladies, you will see lingerie-inspired pieces throughout collections.
- Men, silk button downs are easily paired for day or night. Ted Baker, Hugo Boss and Diesel have some great wovens that can transform any lax look to business dressy
- Prints remain and will carry us into holiday. You will continue to see florals with the addition of animal prints and houndstooth.
