Last week, I brought you the start of my trend report for Fall 2015 lines from New York Fashion Week. Today, I am here to finish that round up with the highlighted trends from the rest of the shows. I think we’ve got some promising and realistic trends to hop on board with this year, dear readers. Check them out!
A perfect collar: shawl. I love this style. I’ve found myself a perfect open cardigan this year at Goodwill which features this relaxed and comfortable style. The shawl collar is an effortless chic; it holds its shape but isn’t too stiff. There’s an elegance about it that I just love. It popped up in a lot of coat styles on the runway including designs by Elie Tahari and Zac Posen. From oversize and drapey to just-barely there, this style was a refreshing update to sharp lines on jackets and coats.
A pop of pizzazz: glitzy details. I was surprised to see the volume of pieces for the Fall 2015 lines embellished with all kinds of metallic and sequin accenting. It is certainly not something that first comes to mind when I think fall or winter fashion but hey, I am kind of digging the idea of being bold and glam all year round. It might help keep the life in our colder weather wardrobes. Some of my favorite use of this sparkly trend came from Rodarte, J Crew and Badgley Mischka. What’re you thinking about rockin’ retro sequins in next year’s colder temps?
A prominent accent: bold buttons. So, dear readers, this is one of my favorite trends for next season. Who doesn’t love a bold button? I remember as kid, I would love to dump out my mom’s button jar and pick out the brightest (and maybe gaudiest) ones to dream up uses for. It appear as though some big names in fashion like Rachel Zoe (one of my favorite shows of the week!) and Edun all sifted through my mom’s collection because their pieces were adorn with eye-catching hardware. I love the idea of a solid coat, spiced up with popping buttons! And – if you’re a savvy seamstress, you can easily attain this trendy look without purchasing anything!
