Top Five Trends For The Fall
It may still be 78 degrees in New York but Fall is officially here which means one thing; it’s time for a closet update! It may still be warm now but we all know that winter in New York requires layers and more layers. To make things a little easier, we’ve put together a list of our top five trends for the Fall so you can start thinking ahead.
Head to toe red
If there’s one hue that screams Fall 17, it’s red. Worn boldly via each many catwalk looks, this is one colourful idea that actually suits everyone. Once you’ve found a red that suits you, this is a standout look that can be worn by all ages. The obvious bonus of wearing head to toe one colour is that it helps elongate the body making you look longer and leaner. Not quite ready for H2T red (that’s head to toe)? Pair up an otherwise all red outfit with a pair of jeans.
Oversized sweater and midi skirt
It’s a tried-and-tested combination for the past three seasons, so we’re thankful to the design houses of these leading brands for confirming that there’s still plenty of mileage to be had in a midi skirt and a chunky sweater look. We’re not saying that this is a look for everyone and if you’re on the petite side, we recommend going for a shorter sweater to balance out the top and bottom half of the body. Curvier women should chose a top in a v neck and fits at the waist rather than a sweater than a shapeless sweater. All heights and shapes benefit from a heel with this look whether it be a block heel boot or over the knee boots.
Summer’s mini-bag trend probably won’t go away (hey, we all love a hands-free existence don’t we?) but there’s a wave of big big big arm candy for the Fall. Our tip is to realistically think about your own body shape and height here. If you’re a petite five feet tall, a bag as big as you will drown you. It’s all relative with big bags. Choose a style that’s big enough to make a statement but not so big that you look like you could fit into it!
Feathers, fur and fluff
It’s the season to be adventurous! Feathers, fur and fluff adorned many a sweater, shoe, bag and dress on the catwalks and in fact adding some texture to an outfit is a quick and easy way to update your current pieces for the Fall. Add a fur scarf or feather belt or bolero to a jacket and voila, you have an on-trend look. Accessories are the way to go here and the bonus of our suggestions are that you can mix and match these with various looks.
If all other trends fail you, then simply add a pair of decorative, crystal-laden shoes, and you’re good to go. It it sparkles, you’re on to a winner!
