Top Four Fall 2017 Fashion Trends

Discover the most sought-after Fall fashion trends.

Not just the season of Pumpkin Spice Lattes and apple picking, Fall is all about turning over a new leaf, especially when it comes to fashion. Transitional weather allows us to get experimental with our clothing choices, playing with layers, bundling up in knitwear, and introducing outerwear into the mix. Now that you’ve stocked up on wardrobe staples, it’s time to refresh your closet with some of this season’s most covetable items. Luckily, this season’s must-haves are as chic as they are wearable, with a broad selection of styles to appeal to the most diverse of preferences. Here’s how to master this Fall’s most sought-after fashion trends.

Shearling Jackets

Not your average leather jacket—consider this Fall’s shearling jacket an elevated interpretation of the quintessential biker-inspired style. Rendered in a softer and thicker lambskin than the typical leather jacket, this of-the-moment topper is equally stylish and practical, with its natural wool lining offering extra warmth during cold weather. Luxury designers took the heritage-inspired style in a luxe direction with long, seventies-inspired silhouettes and shaggy Mongolian lamb fur, while streetwear brands channeled downtown cool with cropped cuts and industrial-inspired hardware.

Plaid

Inspired less by grunge and more by Saville Row, this season designers elevated Fall’s favorite pattern with immaculate tailoring and perfected proportions. From New York to Paris, models strutted down the runway outfitted in suit jackets, slim trousers, and trench coats all emblazoned with refined Prince of Wales and houndstooth check patterns. Most emblematic of the trend, iconic American brand Calvin Klein presented a range of sharply-cut grey plaid power suits, perfectly suited for the fashion-forward working woman. After 9 to 5, pair your plaid blazer with a basic t-shirt and straight-cut denim for casual styling.

Thigh-High Boots

While the ankle boot have reigned supreme in years past, this season designers are favoring its thigh-high counterpart. Available in a variety of seasonal fabrics, including stretch leather, suedes, and velvets, over-the-knee boots are one of Fall’s most versatile and easy-to-wear trends. Wear over a pair of skinny jeans for a laid-back weekend outfit or throw on a pair of thigh-high boots to get more mileage out of your favourite summer mini dresses and miniskirts like model Bella Hadid.

Velvet

Last Fall’s favorite trend is back—and it’s better than ever. Velvet, the season’s most sumptuous fabric, makes a grand resurgence in rich jewel hues and glamourous silhouettes. For your next party, skip the ‘little black dress’ and reach for an opulently-toned velvet wrap dress, tailored pantsuit, or midi skirt as seen in collections from Italian fashion houses such as Gucci and Max Mara. For a subtler approach to the trend, add textural interest to any outfit by accessorizing with a pair of plush velvet platform sandals or handbag as offered by Saint Laurent.

Incorporating a seasonal trend or two into your everyday rotation is a fun and easy way to inject excitement into daily dressing and express your personal style. Now get out there and start making these trends your own!
