In the heat of the summer it’s hard to imagine that fall is right around the corner. Before you know it the days will be getting shorter and the nights a bit cooler, by then you’ll notice trends will slowly start to shift. For those of you who are constantly trying to keep up with the latest styles, here are five trends to look out for pre-fall and fall.
One can say this trend has been on the fashion radar for a while since Karl Lagerfeld revealed his Fendi Couture 2016 Collection last year. The designer had the models walk his runway on the Fountain de Trevi in Rome in soft knit boots embroidered in Victorian style flowers. Now, Dior has released a floral embroidered ankle boot, continuing to make floral a top trend. Think prairie girl meets Victorian style. And do not forget floral jewelry to adorn the whole look.
Black and White
There’s something about a black and white ensemble that embodies pure elegance. This trend is all about small black trimmings and intricate laid on white fabric sets the stage for a seamless sophistication that commands attention. We love Chanel’s black and white quilted looks that always make a statement. Margaret Qualley in Prabel Gurung and Greta Gerwig in Rodarte are great examples of this trend too.
Channel your inner Barbie with a bold burst of hot pink. It seems as if overnight the hot pink trend has emerged everywhere from the streets of New York City to exotic vacation island in Greece, pulled from resort collections. Recently, Kendall Jenner was spotted wearing hot pink high heeled boots during her sister, Khloe Kardahian’s birthday. Color blocking a hot pink layer over bright red is also in the trend forecast. Be bold, you won’t regret it.
This trend has been everywhere this summer, and looks like it will continue well into the fall. Dior’s resort 2018 collection showcased a western theme with hues of camel and nude with some plaid mixed in. Look for a lot of tanned and brown leather clothing pieces, dark denim, lace, and orange-red and turquoise accents.
Put your summer plaid to good use. From Opening Ceremony to Alex Rullins’ Fall 2017 show, plaid is another trend that has been everywhere, and will also transition to fall. Plaid has especially made its mark this summer with ruffle skirts and off-the-shoulder tops. Keep a look out for plaid pantsuits this fall.
