The Open Rode: Biker Style
Considering most designers featured some sort of motorcycle jacket for fall, there’s no slowing down the biker trend. With Wang and Balmain paving the way, other houses injected their own edge, too: While Burberry balanced out classic tweeds and trenches with a lace up biker boot, Haider Ackermann polished off an evening gown with a shrunken leather jacket. Introduce a bit of Harley-Davidson cool into your wardrobe with a dash of leather, a heavy-hardware boot, and as many studs as you can handle.
I Love the 80s
It no news that designers look back to the past for inspiration, and its about time that the 80s made their return tour. From Balmain’s bold shouldered jackets and party dresses to Chloe’s blanket coats, the 80s are back in full swing. Channel the extravagant age with heavy shoulders, belted sweaters with leggings, and the healthy dose of acid wash.
While fall usually ushers in darker, somber colors, this time around designers shocked life into their collections with day-glow fabrics. From Marc Jacobs to Louis Vuitton, neon pinks, bright reds, and electric blues paraded down the runway like a sore thumb among the traditional sea of subdued hues. Come fall, throw on a neon bag or jacket to brighten up any grey skies that come your way.
Peek A Boo Bra:
Underwear as outwear has been getting quite the hype as of recent, and designers have perfected the lingerie look for fall. From Alexander Wang and Balenciaga’s tube-top bras to Louis Vuitton’s sheer shirts and lacy tops, it’s definitely time to update your undergarments and let ‘em see some sun.
Keep It Classy: 40s Fan Club
When the going gets tough, reverting to the classics is a sure way to stay in style. This fall, designers channeled the glamour and sultry feel of forties wartime fashion. From Lanvin to L’Wren Scott and Sonia Rykiel, form-fitting dresses and tailored trousers took center stage. Ease a bit of this old-school glamour into your wardrobe with a fitted cloche, body-conscious dress, or a pair of tweed trousers!
