Fall trends 2015
This fall season sees several styles coming back from the 70s, 80s and 90s with new twists, some old favorites and, of course, some fresh new ideas.
Puffer coats and oversized jackets are big, with interesting textures and add-ons, in strong subtle colors. Last year’s trend for shearling coats remains, but this year there are many more style varieties, including cropped jackets, oversize coats, and nubby vests; and why not, there are few things to keep you warmer than a shearling coat.
Oversized sweaters in heavy chunky knits, with deep relief symmetrical designs, and highly textured Aaron styles, like grandma used to make, are huge. They predominate in one single color and should be balanced with a slimmer look below like the fabulous range of leggings that are available this season. Leggings in fresh colors with geometric patterns and fun textures are everywhere.
Faux-fur stoles can be worn around the neck or slung over one shoulder and held in place by a belt at the waist or a sash tied above the bust. Faux-fur is also seen in big, long overcoats and even in shoes and boots!
Layering is really big, with dresses over trousers, sweaters under dresses, crop tops over shirts, have fun!
The old favorite, the turtleneck is back, but this year’s twist is using it underneath short sleeve, of sleeveless mid-thigh dresses, with knee high or over the knee boots. The hottest reincarnation is in black leather, wow!
Flares are back. Breaking away from the skinny silhouette, flares add shape and volume to your figure. Try making your legs look longer by using high heels or wedges with them.
The blazer has become longer and leaner this year. Try it with relaxed chinos for after work or with a full matching midi skirt to make a statement in the office.
Last season’s fringe trend has developed into the wider and rather more refined, at least in look if not in name, car wash skirts, both full length and to the knee. Team them up with a smart blouse or top for an elegant look.
Floral prints are not what you’d expect for fall, but this year they are present with strong, dark background colors like teal, navy of red. They should be combined with more traditional fabrics for cold weather like wool and suede, for a fresh, new look.
It’s back to the 80s with the crazy glamor of the disco era including shiny cropped bomber jackets, and watch out neon’s back- but it’s all grown up. Now those fierce intense colors are used in combination with grays, black, navy and camel colors in exciting simple and refined outfits. Oversized extra pointed collars on shirts and as the neckline dresses are another example of revived 80s maximalism, along with really big buttons.
Futuristic sci-fi designs giving sleek silhouettes with hyper color hues contrast with brocade prints and high necked lacy Victorian-style blouses. Black lace pants are really hot. Lots of intricate, ornate embroidery is seen in evening wear where the trend is sleek, sparkly and strapless.
Ankle boots have grown this season to mid-calf with chunky heels and are perfect for cropped pants and midi skirts, while combat boots are combined with mini-skirts, fur coats, and even evening dresses.
The season’s color is brown, and while that may sound a bit boring but there are loads of tones and combined with rich colors like copper and maroon look great.
While black is always easy, because it goes with everything, this season it just goes with itself. It’s black from head to toe, so to break up the monochromatic monotony by using different textures, patterns, and layers.
Not to be outdone all white is also in this fall, or more correctly off white. A warm creamy white is the in thing and again exciting textures and contrasting adornments break up the monotony.
A few rather surprising re-runs on the runways include patchwork, oversized patch pockets, and sporty ponchos!!
