Trends may come and go, but for the past few years we’ve seen some trends stick around.
Texture, fringe, cropped silhouettes, menswear inspired trousers and tonal dressing have once again made their appearance and there is no better season than fall to put them to the test. Layering is the simplest way to make even the most straightforward of clothes look special and I’m not holding back this season.
My generally cool toned wardrobe is getting an infusion of seasonal warmth with warm chocolates and caramels. (Which by the way, is totally making me hungry!?) I’ll be wearing colors bold enough to stand on their own, but even better when mixed and matched with blush and cream for a little modern contrast.
How great is that Banana Republic SWEATER VEST? I walked into the flagship store a few weeks ago in NYC and I couldn’t get over how many great pieces they were offering this season. Even my girlfriend who was with me at the time (and listened my diatribe over lunch about how much BANANA REPUBLIC has changed for the better) agreed and had to be dragged out of the store!!! Thumbs up to Marissa Webb, their Creative Head of Design — you’ve brought me back.
Oh, and about that Gucci BAG… I’m not generally a fan of logos of any kind. Usually, I hate them. But there was just something so 70’s cool about this bag that seems to work perfectly with the textures and styles of the season, that I may be a temporary convert. The nude/pink/blush color is also so, so pretty!
What are some of the fall trends that you’ll be embracing this season? Are there any you wish would just go away?
