The September Equinox has officially passed, and here at The Chic we are all about fall!
Fall 2016 runways are full of surprising colors, thrilling statement pieces, and head-to-toe textures reminding us of peak leaves against grey skies. We hope you enjoy some of our favorite trends put together in ways we think translate well from runway to real life:
We say luxe velvet never really goes away, and it has been gaining popularity for the past few seasons now. If you’ve been hesitating on the velvet plunge, it’s time to jump into this soft, sophisticated answer to looking chic and keeping cozy. We paired a black velvet skirt with a floral crop (florals are another fall trend- yay!), and finished the look with a merlot blazer by Sound and Matter.
Versatility is important for a busy and eclectic nomadic princess. Transition this summer’s off the shoulder dress or body suit and show a little shoulder this fall! Our second look shows Kait in the perfect boho cotton dress by ABS layered with a vintage paisley vest and Betsey Johnson belt. Rule the streets with this sweet but sassy ensemble.
It’s no secret that plaid is one of the tell-tale signs that fall has arrived. This year fashion experts are saying to think outside the box. Make plaid the theme of your entire outfit or wear a plaid overcoat for a fresh take on a fall staple. Miss Molly is sporting a combination of plaids to illustrate the playfulness of the “new plaid” on the runways and another big trend: turtlenecks under dresses. Layers for days (and chilly fall nights!).
Wearing dusty pink and pretty much any shade of yellow together this fall will make you the chicest lady in the room. These *usually* strict spring colors have made their way into your favorite fall garments, adding the perfect pop of color to your wardrobe. In this look, Alison dons a sweet pink blazer over a mustard embroidered top and plaid slacks. Extra points for coordinating her hair color.
Shearling bombers are circling their way back into the fashion world and in the best way possible. Steph shows how to make this military classic look fresh and feminine paired with a floral pencil skirt and fuzzy jeweled sweater – note the pink and yellow tones again here!
In our final look we make a statement with metallic tones and ruffles. This structured vintage Hampton Nites top is giving us all the feels, especially paired with hip-hugging jeans and a choker by Brittany Rea. Take this look from day to night with ease and remember, while we are always watching what’s happening on the runways, we are ALL about curating your own personal style.
