You guys!!! I have been trying to take a break from thrifting so frequently because my closet was getting overrun with awesome deals! (is that really a bad thing?) I have been finding a lot of things online and of course, still shopping at my favorite spots. Moving forward, I want to concentrate on building my fall wardrobe around what I saw on the runway at Fashion Week. Here are three of the super wearable trends that were common:
How beautiful are these ruffles?? I love the romanticism of this look. While the middle look is definitely more dramatic and probably wouldn't be seen walking down East Washington Street in Greenville, the idea is just gorgeous. Movement is key in fall! I love the fluidity of the ruffle look, especially when done in an unexpected color. I wouldn't choose the dusty pink color for a fall look right off the cuff, BUT as you will see below, it's a color trend in it's own right! Imagine a beautiful white ruffled shirt with a pair of neutral tan or grey denim and a great pair of booties with a bold lip. What perfect combination!
I love this unexpected look for fall. The yellow is, obviously, more common. However, yellow paired with this dusty pink or mauve is genius. Brunettes definitely have an advantage with this combo, as it may wash us blonde girls out. My absolute favorite of these three is the sheer lace dress with the pop of yellow underneath. I love the more muted yellow or mustard tone on the brunette. This also definitely fits into my fall thought process of layering. I don't think this combination would have as much impact if they were together on one shirt or long skirt. Beautiful, yes; just not as dynamic and modern.
I was so happy to see shades of tan as a trend, because I LOVE neutrals. My closet is dripping with winter whites, greys, black, and browns. I have bought 5 thrifted pairs of boots in the last month, all in shades of tan. Yesssss! From camel to more of a tobacco tone, tans bring a lot of class to any ensemble. I especially love grey and tan together, such as the middle look. That combination can be so beautiful and professional, but also perfect for a casual fall day! And who doesn't love a tan trench coat?
Which of these (or other) trends are you going to try and implement into your style this season??
