Your fall 2018 guide to staying on-trend
Twice a year, fashion month leaves us wide-eyed and hungry for designers’ upcoming season trend predictions. There are always reoccurring themes within the designers’ collections, all executed uniquely. Earlier this year, the world’s most influential designers staged their Fall/Winter 2018 collections that have molded what we’ll wear this season. Here are some trends you absolutely must work this season.
You won’t be left totally buggin’ over what to wear this fall, all thanks to Clueless’ Cher Horowitz. The 90’s fashion-forward it-girl continues to inspire designers to create their take and push limits of plaid ensembles. From Dontatella Versace to Michael Kors, models walked the runway with the recognizable, iconic Beverly Hills schoolgirl aesthetic. Put away your basic plaid flannel and make a statement by channeling your inner Cher with a plaid blazer and mini skirt. This charming look is perfect for the days that are challenging to dress because of the wishy-washy weather. To complete the look, pair it with a white t-shirt, closed-toe Mary Janes, throw on some high-knee socks or tights, or even try experimenting with colors and other patterns.
Another prominent trend you need to try out this fall is futurism. Head to toe holographic looks captivated audiences and all of us watching from home, making sure we don’t forget to hop on board this season. To make this tricky style simple yet still mesmerizing and flashy, matching one or two futuristic pieces with a simple outfit will have you radiating magic. Try pairing a white cable-knit sweater with holographic skirts or pants. See-through plastic is a material that is very popular right now. Be on the lookout for iridescent accessories to make yourself shine through the fall color scheme.
80’s trends are still being manipulated into modern day style and there’s no escaping them. Wearing full glam evening outfits as daywear is something to definitely try out on days when you need a little more sparkle. Western looks are also quite popular this fall. Chloé, Isabel Marant, and Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini have inspired this season to be a little more on the wild side with cowboy-inspired boots, western prints, suede, and fringe. Pair your cowgirl boots with a long sleeve knit dress for a western chic look. Animal print is timeless and easy to layer up with. Leopard and snakeskin printed outerwear are staples to your wardrobe this season. Printed coats make layering look effortless yet stylish.
