The final days of August are here, so we start to wonder which autumn trends are worth our attention. This season you should follow the shopping maxim that you shouldn’t buy something unless you can think of at least three ways to wear it. This will ensure that you don’t regret your decisions.
For the fall of 2019, the runways have spoken, and the ’90s are back. So are the ’80s. And the ’70s. There are also a couple fashion trends that can’t be traced back to any particular decade. Designers like Chanel, Gucci, and more declared everything from power shoulders to micro-micro bags a thing. So, we’re using the early autumnal weather as the perfect excuse to get our next season aesthetic in order. Here’s some of our favorite trends:
1. Micro bags
Micro bags have always been a statement of style. And if you want to go all the way you can combine two handbag trends: choose a snake print or croc-embossed leather – which are also big this fall.
2. Millennial purple
If 2018 was all about millennial pink, everything turns up purple this fall. Rodarte and Tom Ford introduced the orchid hue and it’s a hit. You can opt for a head-to-toe approach or you can keep it minimalistic with a touch of lavender in your accessories.
3. Belted suits
Designers are all around suit styling and this fall is all about the belt. Prada presented blazers with built-in cinchers and Marni contrasted monochrome suits with stylish chains. Try this trend by styling your favourite oversized suits with a belt and accessorize it accordingly. This fall we’ll be reaching for our belts to wrap around everything, from knits to coats and everything in-between.
4. Back to school
Catwalks have been filled with uniform inspiration: polo shirts, sweater vests, and three-piece sets. Thom Browne made an empire reworking schoolboy suits, and Victoria Beckham and Lacoste are taking notes. Specifically, designers are mad for plaid. “Checks and plaids will be everywhere this season,” Basloe noted. “There were so many exciting ways designers reinvented these classic patterns for fall, from brightly colored tartan at Marine Serre to Chanel’s graphic black and white houndstooth, and more.”
Corduroy has been making a subtle comeback over the last few months or so, but double that time-frame and we’re predicting it will have truly reached the masses. Opt for loose-fitting incarnations for a casual look, and high-waisted flared trousers with a nipped-waist jacket of an evening.
