The trends of the fashion world are constantly changing. Every month, it seems, a new trend is introduced. There are however, several staple fashion items that stick around for more than a year and these are the most popular among customers. Here are the top trends coming out this fall:
This 1970s trend is coming back in full force, finding its way to jeans racks across the country. High waist, flare, and deep washed jeans are all a sign of the revival of this trend. They are often paired with high wedges or ballet flats.
Yes, those old boots you threw away during the nineties are coming back in style! Whether you buy real or imitation suede, they look great with just about every style of pants. Buy them in a vast array of colors and pair them with skinny jeans to create the illusion of longer legs.
Plaid Jackets and Trench Coats:
Coats are taking a decidedly sophisticated turn this year, with tan, professional-looking trench coats coming into style. The 1980s, neon “puffer” jackets are coming into style, as well. They come in shades of pink, orange, green and yellow.
A slight throwback to the seventies, this look is combing vintage styles with a modern twist. Tribal designs and flowing dresses are popular. These are being paired with sandals imbedded with stones.
They have been everywhere all summer, and the trend is continuing well into the year. They have evolved from feathered headbands and extensions to feathered jewelry. Ladies are wearing long feathers around their necks and accenting the sides of their faces with feather earrings.
Booties and Wedges:
Boots are always popular, no matter when you wear them. There are, however, certain trends that have found their way onto the footwear scene. Booties have been combined with high heels to create a “high-heeled bootie.” These look great with skinny jeans or flares. They also accent dresses very nicely.
These ankle-high shoes are not just available in a tan tone, but in every pattern imaginable. They are being paired up with jeans, slacks and skirts. Oxfords can now be purchased in leopard print, neon green, pinks, blacks and other fun patterns and colors.
Goodbye, chic and hello grunge. A little flashback to the nineties is getting a much-needed makeover. Stylish, classy military jackets have been the rage for quite a while. These green jackets are often accompanied by gold buttons that accent the color perfectly.
These pieces never really go out of style. Ladies have been seen wearing these denim jackets with their mini or maxi dresses. Actress Hailee Steinfield has been seen wearing this trend on the red carpet in Hollywood.
Graphic tees have never been more…graphic! Art is expressing itself on the fronts of tee shirts, and they are modernly being worn with jeans, skirts, over or under long dresses, with jackets and skinny jeans and many other looks. They embody versatility.
Whether you are a fashion diva or looking for a comfortable way of expressing your style, this year boasts a wide variety of options to keep you looking your best. The latest fashion trends are as individual as the people who wear them and each year seems to get better. Everyday is an opportunity to fill the city with style and thanks to the creative designers, the streets look great.
