Fashion Friday: Buy Now, Wear Next Year!

I’ve been following fashion week closely and have found so many patterns in what designers are showing as the “trends” for fall 2015.  By assessing what’s going to be hot NEXT fall and winter, you can buy some great items NOW that will still be chic in 12 months!  And with all the fall/ winter sales going on you can get some great stuff for low prices too!

FUR, FUR and MORE FUR (Faux, preferably)

Fur was everywhere on the runways.  There was hardly a designer who DIDN’T show fur, especially fur collared coats and blazers.  Now, real fur is not for everyone (I do my best to not buy it personally) but there is such good faux fur now that you can get this look without sacrificing your beliefs.  In my opinion, this was the number one trend of fashion week shows!

PINK!

If there is a statement color for fall, the runway made it VERY clear that it’s pink! From outerwear to gowns and shoes, bright pink is going to be “it” come fall.

LAYERED, TEXTURED PALE TONES

Layering creams, tan, camel and even white was another hot trend.  A singular pale tone, but done is rich textures like knits,  wool, fur, silk and suede.

GET THE LOOK:

RED, MERLOT & PURPLES

I think every fall in recent memory has had a bevy of merlot and cabernet tones (is it wine time yet, btw?)  I’m loving the bohemian accents and fringe, but also the sleeker deep red pieces as well.

LEATHER SKIRTS

I kind of DIE for this first look, so French, no?  Suede and leather skirts were super popular (as are leather pants still, so go ahead and pull the plug on your hesitation to buy some).  Whether pencil, full or mini- a leather skirt will be a must for fall 2015.
