Fall Fashion Scorecard: Which Runway Trends Made Store Shelves?
What we said then: “Unexpected quilting, lace, leather, and color blocking give a boost to classic black, gray, cream, and camel.”
Did it happen? Obviously, none of these colors are ever truly out of style, but if anything, we’re seeing more color this year (with the exception of black and white– more on that below).
2. Vibrant red
What we said then: “There’s nothing hotter than a rich, brilliant red, and the shows for Kye, Josie Natori, Tome, and Mark and Estel were filled with candy-apple shades for the fall.”
Did it happen? Oh yeah. You’re going to be seeing plenty of red this fall.
Try it out: Longchamp tote, Vince chunky cardigan, Bettina Liano pencil skirt3. Shimmer and shine
What we said then: “Everyone loves a little glimmer and glamour, and modern takes on shiny metallics were all over the runways this year.”
Did it happen? Absolutely. Cool silver and bright gold tones are especially hot.
Try it out: J. Crew flats, Banana Republic dress, Shoe Mint flats4. Bold prints
What we said then: “Fun and exciting geometric prints were a Fashion Week favorite this year, served up in shades of modern plum, camel, bronze, and black.”
Did it happen? You’ll definitely see some bold prints, but it’s not a major trend for fall– this trend hit a little early, in the summer, which makes sense given that it’s a more lively, party-centric time of year. The exception, once again, is black and white.5. Black & white
What we said then: “The eternally dynamic duo stayed fresh thanks to intriguing patterns and fun shapes.”
Did it happen? Yup. Bold patterns, stripes, and swirls in the classic combo are all over the place.
