From New York to London, and recently starting off in Milan before heading off to Paris, the Fall/Winter 2017 Fashion Week season is in full swing, and trends for the next season are beginning to take shape. Even though most of the collections will not hit the shopping racks until the end of the year, it’s still exciting to see what will be on offer. For those who are too busy to catch up on all the shows, scroll down to see our list of 10 trends we’ve spotted on the runways in the past weeks.
From the tailored blazer to pinstripes and checks, designers have taken elements from the menswear classics and reimagined them in a feminine form, offering all power women brand new workwear that is both flattering and all-occasion-appropriate.
Though commonly associated with warmer weather, there’s no reason to restrict florals only to Spring/Summer. For next season, we see rich floral elements blooming all across different runways, most of them in a darker/muted colour palate to achieve that perfect moody fall/winter vibe.
With all the chaos happening in the world, designers are urging us to voice out and take a stand, some by playing music with sensitive lyrics during the show, and others by presenting t-shirts and accessories with meaningful slogans printed on top.
All that frills
From shirts and sweaters to evening dresses, big architectural frills and ruffles are generously added to different garments for an extra boost of femininity.
Belts are great in making your outfit look more polished and put-together; the wide belts, in particular, are making a comeback this season, dominating runways of Michael Kors, Osman, Adam Selman and more.
Looks like the ongoing fishnet trend is only going to get stronger this fall: Apart from the typical tights, designers are incorporating the trend into tops and feminine, bright dresses for a more modern, less trashy, approach.
Following the rise of ‘super stripes’ (a random mix of eye-catching colourful stripes in different thicknesses and directions), designers are once again favouring the thick, even, black vertical stripes, with most of them featuring a singular colour combination that reminds us a bit of a carnival look.
A little slice here, a big slash there — designers are embracing uneven cutouts this season, resulting in asymmetric necklines and unbalanced sleeves that give an ever more striking appeal.
Plaids might seem like a typical pattern for fall, however, instead of going for the usual 90s grunge, designers are opting for the brighter version from the 70s.
Whether it’s a suit, a top, a pair of trousers or a dress, metallic is making a major comeback this fall, making it relatively easy to dress up for all special occasions.
