So this was the first year where not only did I not go to NYFW at all, but it was also the first year where I honestly paid zero attention to any shows (I KNOW – IT’S SO UNLIKE ME). Regardless, I did get looped into a couple trends.
I sat on this post for a while because I thought I’d be able to get some pictures of my outfits up for you guys but I’ve been so swamped that I decided it wasn’t worth it to wait any longer. So, even though I’m totally late to the party on this one, here’s my best and worst trends for Fall 2016.
Fur. Seen mostly at Michael Kors and J.Crew shows, the statement fur is back. Both real and faux fur made an appearance but what was really the game-changer were all of the bright colors that were used. I probably won’t partake in this trend but I’m sure I’ll see plenty of people on the NYC streets who will, which is why I decided to include it.
Ruffles. I’m not sure how I feel about this trend. I think if the ruffles are in the right place, it could be a decent look. But I’m not too keen on looking like a runaway mariachi band. Ya feel?
Tan. Love. This. Color. I’m allll about the neutrals because I can get longevity out of them. I absolutely despise pieces I can only wear once (other than if it’s a special occasion dress or something). Like I know I’m probably breaking some code by re-wearing my clothes but I’m a 23-year-old young adult. Longevity and versatility are my best friends and this color trend gives me exactly that.
Gold Metallic. At first I was like “wtf is this” but then I realized that one of my favorite dresses has gold metallic flowers on it. So after I got off my high horse, I decided that I’m all for this. It just has to be done right.
Shearling Bombers. It’s going to be a no for me…unless I decide I want to Amelia Earhart for Halloween.
Turtlenecks under dresses. When it gets cold outside, all of my fashion sense goes out the window. I do not care what I look like; I just hate being cold. I can see myself wearing this look in an act of desperation to stay warm but other than that, don’t count on it.
Plaid Overcoats. I actually don’t hate this. I think I’d wear a plaid overcoat if the tan trend didn’t come out at the same time (sorry but I have my eye on a Burberry Tan Overcoat so plaid, you lose this one).
Off-the-Shoulder. I thought I’d hate this but I absolutely do not hate this at all…sort of like the boy I made out with last weekend (jk mom and dad…I don’t even talk to boys…). So if you can get past how annoying it is to have something off your shoulder, then I highly suggest this look. I have multiple shirts and dresses that are off the shoulder, and I get compliments every single time. So moral of the story: don’t knock it ‘til you try it.
Dusty Pink and Yellow. Dusty pink? Yes. So much yes. Yellow? No. So much no. I associate yellow with warmth and even though mother nature has been more temperamental than a girl on her period with these weather-temperature mood swings, I’d like to keep associating summer with warmth and fall with crispy colors like brown and burnt orange.
Pantsuits. Brb while I go barf.
Fall Florals. I will never not wear florals. I fully support this trend and I always will.
Chokers. I honestly hope this trend never goes away. Wearing a choker makes me seem so much cooler than I actually am. And oh so #trendy.
Alright, so there you have it. Sorry my sass in this post was unreasonably high (I’m not actually sorry), I just haven’t slept in like a week so I’ll try to get one more post up for you guys and then no one bother me while I go hibernate for the next day and a half.
