Get a Head Start on Some of Fall’s Hottest Trends

March 9, 2015

So, in case you’re wondering…yes…I did finally give up sulking about the cold weather and force myself to look at the Fall shows. What I found were some trends that have been enjoying the spotlight for a while (can we say…fur?) and others that were just getting out of the gate. WWD listed several Fall 2015 trends including: capes, fur, anoraks, and folksy looks.

Two trends I am particularly fond of are the 70’s revival and, as this WWD article dubs it, car-wash chic. If you’re like me and are eager to get a head start on looking like a car wash (or diva queen, whichever works best for you) you’re in luck. With Fall being a lot like Spring with all the erratic weather and layering opportunities, there’s no better time than to jump on these trends than now.

Trend: 70’s Revival

The Runway Inspo: Gucci

Gucci RTW Fall 2015

Sheer blouses, bright colors, and relaxed looks hit the runway for Gucci.

To translate this outfit into something a little more wearable, try keeping a bold color for the top or bottom rather than both. A cropped version of the trouser in a crisp linen pairs perfectly with a sheer blouse for spring weather. Shop it:  Trouser, blouse

The Runway Inspo: Chloe

Chloé RTW Fall 2015

Chloe parades neckties and makes sure everyone knows that corduroy isn’t just a bear. Absolutely loving this blush color.

This modern take on the tie blouse is fresh and versatile. Wear it tucked into or on top of (with a belt) this jumpsuit. Shop it: tie blouse, jumpsuit

The Runway Inspo: Jonathan Saunders

Start with a colorful jacket, add a printed blouse, and finish off the look with a sleek pair of denim trousers in a bell bottom style. Budget friendly tip: splurge on nice denim- you’ll wear it from now until next winter. Save money on the brighter pieces that are more memorable. Shop it:  Jacket, Blouse, bell bottom



The Trend: “Car-wash Chic”

The Runway Inspo: Rosetta Getty

Rosetta Getty RTW Fall 2015

This simple, yet alluring piece can only leave you wondering…is it culottes? a skirt? a dress? Car wash panels? Whatever it is, I like it.

A black skirt with a slit gives the same impression as multiple panels. Not only does this sweater look impossibly cozy, but you can always pull up the shoulders if it gets a bitty nippy out. Shop it:   Skirt, Top

The Runway Inspo: Guy Laroche

If you didn’t understand the whole ‘car wash’ thing you might after seeing this number.

A conservative black turtleneck keeps the look classy when you are sporting a thigh high slitted sequin skirt. Shop it:   Skirt, Turtleneck

The Runway Inspo: Ryan Lo

Ryan Lo RTW Fall 2015

This is a pretty funky outfit, and if you’re looking for something bold (but maybe not too eye catching) try the combo below.

Opening Ceremony Rib-Knit A-Line Dress - Short - Barneys.comFrenchie Pullover

A ribbed dress gives the appearance of lots of slits without the worry of a wardrobe malfunction. Top it off with a cheeky sweater to keep the look casual and quirky. Shop it:    Dress, Sweater

Now I need to work on resisting the urge to buy everything cranberry colored and/or cutting slits in all my skirts. What can I say. It’s hard out here for a fashionista.

What’s your favorite Fall 2015 trend you saw hit the runways? I’d love to hear.
