We have seen the runway shows, and now those fall pieces are beginning to show up in retailers world-wide. Before you head out to beef up your fall wardrobe, take a look at our favorite trends for fall this year. Patterns and textures rule this season, so keep your eyes peeled for luxe plaid, demure furs, and wild animal prints.
Mad for Plaid
Plaid is frequently a strong pattern for fall as the pattern evokes cozy flannel shirts and warm plaid blankets This fall plaid runs the gamut from casual to work wear, from colorful to muted.
Dior sent several buffalo check looks down the runway for fall. We love the navy and black color combination, as it plays for the workday and out for dinner.
We recommend these tone on tone plaid pants from Michael Kors. The more neutral patterned trousers will work with many different looks, and they are destined to become a staple piece in your wardrobe.
While we love the bold statement of Gucci’s embroidered plaid shirt, their runway look was very editorial. For a wearable look, consider pairing the oversized shirt with a pair of boyfriend jeans and booties.
This gold and brown plaid Marc Jacobs’ coat serves as a handy transition into our next fall trend.
For the Love of Fur
Last year saw a resurgence for the love of lavish furs. Where last year’s runways were filled with colorful, bold styles, this fall’s furs are more subdued. We are seeing full coats made of either real or faux fur, as well as tailored outerwear accented with fur collars or cuffs.
Dior’s shaggy fur coat relies on texture, rather than color, to make a strong statement this fall.
At first glance, this knee-length fur seems far too demure to be Gucci. Click through and check out the back of the jacket to get the full look.
This incredibly lady-like jacket from Michael Kors looks chic over a sheath dress or a silk shell top.
Take a Walk on the Wild Side
One of our favorite ways to add neutral pattern to a fall outfit is with animal print. Whether you rock leopard, cheetah or snakeskin, the natural patterns look great from day to night. There is something both sexy and elegant about animal prints, and fall is the perfect time of year to sport this fashionable trend.
Leopard print is a D&G staple, and we love the double-breasted detail of this coat. The effect is as flattering as a wrap-dress, but for outerwear!
These flat-front leopard trousers feature small buckle details on each hip. Pair them with a thin cashmere sweater for a timelessly chic look.
Michael Kors’ take on the classic trench elevates it from basic to bombshell!
If leopard print isn’t your thing, maybe snakeskin pattern is more your style. This hand-painted python coat from Gucci is a show-stopper.
