Being fashionable is a must this fall. No matter if you go to school, at work, or at glamorous events, make sure you acquire your latest fashionable pieces for this season. Here are the latest picks which will guarantee you a chic, warm, and versatile outfit for the rainy days to come.
Opt for gray
This fall everything will be about the reinterpreted “50 shades of gray”. Get inspired from prêt-a-porter collections presented by Alexander Wang, Reed Krakoff, Michael Kors or Proenza Schouler, and opt for full length gray coats. Quality fabrics of the season include mohair, lamb wool and patent leather.
The “all white” style continues to remain a fashion statement, after the summer of 2013. Choose knit pieces made from soft fabrics including cashmere, mohair, organic cotton or leather. Add a touch of luxury by opting for opulent white faux fur caps or trench coats. What we like most about this head-to-toe “Snow White” look is that it is easily assembled and, with the right accessories, can turn any woman into a true “fashionista”.
Peplum is still in
Adopt a more sophisticated look by combining tartan pieces with nude and black peplum skirts or silk blouses, as seen on Moschino, Dior, and Vera Wang.
These are an absolute must. Reinvented for the past few seasons, leather continues to play an important role on the runway. This fall go for leather tops in dark colors (burgundy, ox blood, black and navy) and full length skirts, as seen in the Calvin Klein collection. Wear them with large plaid trousers for a more relaxed touch, just like in the Hermes collections.
Will be your ultimate elegant pieces this season. Opt for full length velvet dresses with lace inserts as seen on Tadashi Shoji, or for tulip, bandeau midi dresses similar to Emporio Armani.
Classic patterns reinterpreted
After a few seasons of fashion wandering with psychedelic, graphic and Aztec-inspired prints, world’s best designers are ready to return to the basics. Get your inspiration pieces from Thakoon or Victoria Beckham and choose an animal print statement top with leather insert hems and mid-length skirt.
Whether you go for the classic quilted black biker jacket like the one from Rebecca Minkoff, or a pair of peg-leg trousers such as the ones from Rag & Bone, it is all about quilting this fall. Complete the masculine look with a simple manly jacket or opt for a more romantic interpretation by adding a silk dress beneath a quilted jacket.
Loose silhouette garments
If you are not emphasizing your waist with a peplum top, adopt the opposite look by appealing to loose garments. Mary Katrantzou reinterprets marine prints with an asymmetric loose fit gown made of silk, while Hermes proposes loose 7/8 length full coats.
Over-the-knee high boots
Whether you opt for suede, patent leather or plain lamb leather, high heeled over-the-knee boots continue to be present on the runways. Always wear them with mini or midi skirts, in dark shades of aubergine, tangerine, navy or green. Phillip Lim, Ralph Lauren, or Reed Krakoff are just a few from the big fashion houses following this trend.
50 shades of green
If emerald green was the key-color of summer, fall 2013 comes with other infinite possibilities to wear green, but with darker shades. Mix a knee-length gray dress with a faux fur charcoal green collar and a pair of pointed shoes like Marc Jacobs, or keep it simple with a knee-length dark green silk dress as seen on Cushnie et Ochs. Accessorize the dress with a pair of strappy sandals and a tangerine red lipstick.
