Trend Report

This year fall fashion is positively fabulous. It's all about glitz, glamour, rock n' roll, animal-prints, furs, rich colors, bold prints, you name it. Many of the season's popular trends can be found right in your closet. Doesn't that make your life a little easier? I've compiled a list of ten of my favorite trends straight off the runway. I don't know about you, but I'm counting down the days 'til I can throw on a coat and slip on a pair of tights and booties. I've always considered fall to be the most fashionable and elegant season of all. Designers have truly outdone themselves. There is just too much eye candy hitting the stores this fall. What's a girl to do? 

1. Velvet

2. Sequins

3. Purple

4. Feathers

5. Fur 

6. Leather   

7. Studs 

8. Houndstooth 

9. Leopard 

10. Orange

From top to bottom: 
1. Ralph Lauren
2. Phillip Lim

7. Marc Jacobs 
8. Alexander McQueen
9. DVF
10. Jil Sander

Fabulous trendspotting, darling! I am soooo psyched for fall ~ especially because of all the velvet and houndstooth on the runways!


Sanity Fair said...

Really great summary for Fall. I'm loving how "serious" these looks are (is that the right characterization?). Typically "frilly" things done in heavy winter colors and textures.

This is a great list. I am all over plum and gray/chocolate for Fall. In my head anyway. I am almost ready for boots. Almost....still a little Summer left in me.

Looks totally fab, but now we know what the rest of the world will be wearing, what about the ShopCurious few? x

Sarah Klassen said...

Great collection for Fall -- tomorrow marks the first day of Fall shopping for me! I will start with some pretty dresses, Chanel inspired, and some cozy tights (purple!) followed by some pretty headbands...and def. will make note of your must-haves and keep my eyes peeled :)

Thanks so much!

Averill said...

So excited for this fall -- I adore purple, feathers, houndstooth, leather, studs and just about all the rest of it!

CC- Love Houndstooth, especially the dresses from Preeen!

Style Redux said...

Sanity Fair- Serious is definitely a good word. Women's fashion is shaping up to be quite confident for fall. I like it.

Style Redux said...

ticklishfromadistance- I'm all over purple this season. I think I started liking this color last summer. Before I never really gravitated towards it.

Style Redux said...

Susan- Thanks. Nice blog btw.

Style Redux said...

Sarah Klassen- Ohh I like your kind of thinking. I love anything that is Chanel-inspired. It feels like an accomplishment when you find something fab that Coco would approve of.

Style Redux said...

Lola- Thanks! I'm obsessed with fashion mags/sites.

Style Redux said...

Averill- Sounds like you have good taste!

A Gift Wrapped Life said...

This girl better start saving! You are so organized to list the top trends and then go buy them. I never thought of doing a list when it comes to clothes, maybe that's why my closet is too full and I only wear 10%.

Style Redux 2 said...

I love these looks-luxurious, girly, and fierce all at once!

Style Redux said...

A Gift Wrapped Life- Clothing lists are actually very helpful. It's like a Grocery list. Plus I work in fashion so I try to stay on top of things.
