I always get excited at the end of every season because I can start to look forward to the transition of my wardrobe and I love researching trends. Not all trends are my taste, and I don’t like to jump on board and wear all of them especially if they aren’t my style. Here are a few of my favourite fashion trends forecasted for fall 2017.
Velvet: The velvet trend has been around for a few seasons now and is back for fall especially in formal wear. You can see it in gowns and dresses which are perfect for a fall wedding or upcoming holiday party.
Russian Doll: This trend is one of my favourites because I love fur collars and detailed floral embroidery. It has a beautiful vintage vibe to it with a timeless opulence.
Vintage Couch Florals: I am obsessed with this trend for fall because I design my whole life around vintage florals. It is inspired by your aunt’s living room applying vintage floral to everything from casual tops to coats. It is window and couch dressing applied to fashion.
Victorian Collars: This is one of my favourite trends for fall behind it is so romantic and beautiful. I have always been drawn to the Victorian period and love the feminine lace details of a high neckline. It feels like you are wearing a sophisticated and fancy turtleneck.
Retro Hats: I love it when vintage hats are in vogue because they always add that extra vintage touch to any ensemble. I love cloche hats and berets for the cooler weather. This way you can stay warm and still be fashionable.
1970s Plaid: Instead of the 90s grunge version of plaid this seasons plaid has returned to the 1970s with bright and bold plaids used on everything from coats and gowns. I love wearing plaid coats and dresses in the fall because they have such a warm, cozy look to them.
Vintage Inspired Furs: This trend is perfect for any vintage lover because this fall is all about vintage inspired fur coats that look like they were found at an estate sale. If you love vintage shopping, then this trend is perfect for you because you can have some fun with it and hunt for the perfect vintage fur or faux fur coat.
