10 Fall Trends You Need To Know About
Fashion month left hundreds of runway shows and countless styles. Months after daydreaming about when we could wear the Fall '16 looks from catwalk, the time is finally here. To make things easy on you, we're breaking it all down right here: a hit list of the top 10 trends you'll be wearing all Fall. Read on for the full report or skip to the trend you want to get ahead of the game.
1 || The Coco Effect
What we traditionally refer to Coco Chanel chic was once Coco Chanel's rebellion. Her clothing so ahead of her time that she was shocking to most. Her monochrome aesthetic and ladylike sensibility are back for Fall. Pearls and black ribbons were seen around the neck, tweeds and silk blouses reimagined in more avant-garde yet still chic variations. We particularly loved the direction taken by Alexander Wang, 'the prostitute meets Coco' as whispered at the front row of his show... For more inspiration click here.
2 || Military
Designers are riffing on a more literal kind of uniform for Fall: the military uniform. It’s been influencing fashion since at least since the ’60s, when John Lennon wore a M-65 and Yves Saint Laurent introduced his iconic Saharienne jacket. What’s different about the jackets we’ve seen this season (atGucci, Burberry, Givenchy, and more) is that they seem plucked not from the army surplus store, but from 18th-century Britain and France. They’re crisp; strong-shouldered; and decorated with epaulettes, brass buttons, and rope trim, plus a few modern add-ons like crystals and bows for good measure.For more inspiration click here.
3 || Brocade
The opulent brocade has surfaced for Fall '16/'17. Part tribal chic and part metallic glamour this interesting trend can be used in a variety of ways. In flowing floaty dresses as seen at Maison Rabih Kayrouz, or as a base for a sheer piece as seen at Delpozo. It also came as a structured tailored piece for those courageous ones.

4 || Ruffles
The Spring ruffles trend has crossed over to Fall, the interesting thing is that it is still as lightweight and light colored as the Spring version. For an updated version give your daytime wardrobe a ruffle or two with some sheer lace ruffle tops as seen at Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini, or a puff sleeved ruffle blouse as seen at Isabel Marant.

5 || Sheer
The sheer trend is going from strength to strength, and the sheer dresses worn by Beyonce and JLo at the MET gala last year, don't appear as ridiculous anymore! Whether it's sheer lace with your grandmother's undies on show, or the nude slip look with embroidery, like figleaves covering the Adam and Eve parts. For more inspiration click here.
