Taking cues from spring’s February fashion week, there are several trends you can expect to continue throughout the rest of the year. Check out the list of popular trends that you can expect to see during the 2016 fall and winter seasons.
Statement FurFur will be everywhere on the runway—from cross shoulder styles to embellished shirts. However, the real star will be the statement fur. Bold colors, daring prints, and unique designs are extremely popular, and every piece makes for a dazzling ensemble.
Earlier this year, statement fur made a splash on the runway as well. While most coats were favored with the street-style crowd—like Michael Kors’ pink cotton candy coat—there were also a few that aimed for polished refinement. Oscar De La Renta’s sleek burgundy, white, and black creation was a prime example!
Gold and Tinsel
This fall, expect to see metallic tinsel embellishments on Alexander McQueen’s breathtaking gowns and Erdem’s feathered and fringed dresses, as well as a colorful metallic shine in every single one of Wolk Moais unisex pieces. These are incredible color statements to include into your fashion-forward outfits!
Renaissance WomenRenaissance designs will flood the runway with corsets and embroidery to Victorian-inspired sleeves and empire waists. Balmain’s new line specifically looks to include corsetry and embroidery in many of the designs. Other designers bring rich brocade and deep colors to the runway, modernizing classic designs with contemporary accessories and shoes.
Turtlenecks and Dresses
This style is particularly easy to mimic off the runway; all you need to do is pair your favorite summer dress with a turtleneck or some leggings. Online boutique stores, like The Pink Lily Boutique, provide a variety of seasonal clothes that can be stylized for a number of seasons, depending on the outfit and the accessories. Ultimately, your fashion sense should circle around the idea that seasons could be blended for a stylistic effect.
RufflesThe runway is where the most over-the-top pieces belong. Since everyone is accustomed to seeing extravagance, adding ruffles to an ensemble can create that extra dramatic effect. This fall and winter season, you can expect to see a profusion of layers and tiers in shirts, dresses, and even jackets. As a close relative of the ruffle, the capelet will also make a surprise appearance.
Ruffles of exaggerated proportions were utilized on the spring runway with a powerful effect. Expect to see Jill Stuart transition her structured, high fashion ruffles from spring to fall by creating asymmetrical lines and utilizing fall floral patterns. This is one style you won’t want to miss!
