Brown Leather

This year, designers have been embracing the rugged look in their clothing. The models on the runway were clad in soft brown leather moto jackets, trench coats, and jumpsuits.

This look not only communicates a more down-to-earth vibe, but it attracts an audience who needs to work but wants to look fashionable doing it. As a neutral shade, brown is also simple to pair with almost any other garment or accessory, giving it a versatility many other colors don’t have. The nod to the construction industry and lovable earth tones was seen on the runways of several designers, including Veronica Beard, Jonathan Cohen, and Maryam Nassir Zadeh.

Loafers With Everything

A major trend in the footwear department is loafers. Yes, the classic menswear shoe that would clad the foot of a businessman or engineer. But you don’t have to earn the average engineer’s salary of between $50,000 and $150,000 or wear the stuffy suit of a businessman to get in on the loafer look. This year’s runways saw female models wearing the classic loafer with anything from elegant gowns to modern dresses.

This trend was on the runways of designers like Carolina Herrera, Ryan Roche, and Oscar de la Renta. Not only does it offer an alternative to the classic dress-and-heel pairing, but it points to a bigger trend of prioritizing comfort in footwear. This year’s runways also saw ergonomic sandals, stylish mules, and block-heeled boots.

Blurring Gender Lines

Many designers this year threw the gender binary out of the window and instead asserted that people of any gender can wear their clothes. While the runways have been tending towards androgyny for years now, this year saw more male models in feminine looks, female models in masculine looks, and people who don’t identify with either gender in looks that were just fashionable.

Collections from Alessandro Trincone and Bode took on the challenge of reframing typical masculinity. They styled their male-presenting models in soft hues, detailed makeup, and even ballet flats. On the other end of the spectrum, emerging labels such as Batsheva and Vaquera put their female models in high-necked dresses and oversized silhouettes that engulfed their figures to challenge the idea of femininity for the male gaze.

What’s the ultimate takeaway from this year’s New York Fashion Week? This autumn, drape yourself whatever way fulfills your sense of identity, adorn yourself in comfort, dress for utility. Just do you, but make it fashion. What are your thoughts on these top Fall 2019 trends?

Trendspotting: Fall’s Must-Have Accessories

Summer’s over, but cheer up buttercup – fall is one of the best times of the year for fashion and accessories. Leather jackets, oversized blazers, boots, and scarves are just a few of the traditional fall staples that we all know and love. But this year, there are quite a few trends on the rise that everyone’s excited about.

Trending for fall fashion this year are all shades of green and animal prints in every aspect. Evergreen, in particular, made a statement, and you will see it popping up everywhere from sweaters to clutches. Animal prints in long coats and miniskirts are another statement we’ll see this season. ‘60s mod-style is another trending look this fall, from high-kneed boots paired with a shift dress to accessories that remind us of this monumental decade. Everyone is jumping on this retro look. Knits are popular once again as well as robe coats, and designers everywhere are forgoing traditional heels and having their models strut the runway in bright-colored tennis shoes.

With so many looks to choose from, it’s hard to decide which style works for you, but trying just one of these trends and pairing it with a fashionable accessory should make it easier to be in style this fall. No look is complete without eye-catching accessories. Our top fall accessories will help take each of these trending looks to another level. Here are some of this year’s most popular accessories:

High-Knee Boots – Every fall season we fall in love with boots. They pair great with skinny jeans and sweaters, but this year it’s about pairing them with miniskirts, trenches, and – in honor of the return of the swinging ‘60s – shift dresses. Whether you prefer them flat or with a heel, there’s no stopping just how many looks you can create.

The Blanket Scarf – Scarves are another fall signature staple, and anyone looking to create a more dynamic look knows layering with a scarf is one of your best options. This runway season, models are rocking blanket scarves of enormous lengths with tassel details. Burberry is leading the way with this trend, but there are more affordable options out there.

Bucket Bags – These large, cylinder-shaped bags were trending this summer, and they’ve carried over into the fall as a favorite. The slouchy, crossover bag is perfect for the cooler months ahead. Grab one in an animal print or a popular shade of green for even more style. Michael Kors has several that are in tune with this season’s look.

Statement Jewelry – Statement earrings are timeless. They can be worn year-round, but the trend for this fall is to pair them with wide brim hats and other bohemian accessories. Dangly earrings, charm earrings, and bejeweled pendants are a few other pieces of jewelry you’ll want to snatch up.

Chic Sunglasses – We wear sunglasses all year round just like jewelry, but the trending ‘60s look has brought back some interesting types this year. Round rim glasses with winged tips are a must-have for this fall. Oversized sunglasses are always a good choice, along with gradient sunglasses that pair well with any outfit.

Overwhelmed by all the fall trends? Don’t feel the need to give into everything, find what works best for your style and you’ll be sure to stand out this fall.

The Darling Fall 2014 Collection is bursting with vibrant prints and colors, delicate embroidery, audacious florals, elegant beading, and classic, feminine shapes. We love that several of her Spring 2014 pieces can seamlessly be transitioned into Fall. Nadia Moraes illustrates various themes, special touches, and masculine influences in her fall collection. Preppy goes super polished and graceful, while boyish staples add a masculine touch to a girlish look; the beauty of nature during the fall and the English countryside plays heavy in the collection; special touches including hand painting, stunning brocade, houndstooth, tartan, bamboo, and jacquard celebrates this collection’s English heritage.

Fall Fashion Finds from the GUESS & MARCIANO 2014 Collections

The weather’s getting cooler and it’s time once again to fill our closets with fall-approved layering pieces, lightweight sweaters and jackets, great basics, and standouts. Thankfully GUESS and MARCIANO are here to supply you with your fall essentials while keeping your style far from mundane. We see how sweet life in denim is for fall and how a little (or a lot) of fringe can add excitement to your look. Check out what the sister labels has in store for the cool season.

GUESS

This fall, GUESS brings you a collection with effortlessly-cool vibe and a neutral palette. Denim jackets and jeans are featured in classic silhouettes, embellished with hardware, fringe, western-inspired embroidery, tribal-printed, moto styles, and with distressed details. Inspired by vintage Americana influences, the collection is teaming with worn-in denim overalls and jeans, bold leather jackets and coated denim for a sexy, yet edgy collection. Standout pieces include western-inspired button down shirts, a very sexy lace-up denim, fringe jackets and booties.

MARCIANO

For those looking to add alluring pieces to your fall wardrobe, look no further than the glam and sultry fall fashion offerings from MARCIANO. Get ready for bold color, vibrant prints, sophisticated silhouettes, bewitching looks for after dark and stylish retro looks. While fringe took on a more casual look for GUESS, for MARCIANO, it was all glam. The layered 70’s embellishment turns a classic halter dress into a seductive gown, a tunic into a provocative sheath, and a jacket into a chic layering piece. We are head over heels in love with the faux fur jackets – from the statement faux leather jacket with fur sleeves, the plush white vest, and the beyond stunning, multi-hued, faux fur with thick chain detail, we are in love, love, love.

For both labels, accessories are wonderfully brazen. Jewelry is bold and chunky (no wallflowers here), shoes and handbags boast lots of hardware details from chains, to buckles and metal plates – all the better to keep eyes on you.

Now that you’ve seen what GUESS and MARCIANO has for fall, any favorite looks or trends? We’re really looking forward to all the fringe.
