Fall Favs

by Nicole Franco

I think its safe to say that fall fashion is collectively everyone’s favorite season of the year. While summer is great and relaxing, the fashion just isn’t the same. There’s just a certain je ne sais quoi about bringing those deep fall colors and layers back to life after beach bumming for a few months.

We all know the classics that never, ever go out of style for fall. I’m talking your leather jackets, shearling, furs, boots, layers, sweaters, and dark colors. One can never have too many of these classic fall wardrobe elements but you can absolutely add to these by incorporating trendier pieces for the season. I’ve selected my favorite trends from the Fall 2016 runway collections for the fashion forward person in all of us waiting to escape as well as my fav items to shop!

1. Velvet

There is no doubt velvet will be every this fall. From boots to jackets to pants and tops, the more velvet the better. For those not ready to flaunt a full on matching velvet jacket and pant ensemble, start with a pair of boots or a simple top. It’s a baby step towards rocking a trend but none the less a step.

2. Statement Chokers

Sorry Alexa Chung but chokers are not going anywhere and in fact have become more extravagant than just the dainty chains that are popular now. I’m loving the statement choker trend and need to get my hands on this Loewe choker. Its too perfect.

3. Just One Cold Shoulder

Off the shoulder tops are here to stay but most designers agreed that just one shoulder needed to be exposed for fall, not both.

4. Liquid Metal

Metallics are usually only worn around the holidays and New Years but this fall you can wear these show stopper pieces all season. Just make sure to keep the rest of your look simple and avoid looking like a walking disco ball before NYE.

5. Athleisure

It took me a while to embrace this trend when it first made its appearance a few years ago but now I’m totally on board. Comfort and fashion combined into one look, I’m sold.
