It may be the end of July, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start thinking about upcoming fall trends! Runway Channel put together a great feature outlining the top five runway trends based on the new seasonal collections. Though they only chose to focus on brands that were part of the touchME show, you can be sure that many of these same trends will find their way into the fall offerings of non-mode gal brands as well.
Trend 1: Check Pattern
Leave it to labels like MURUA and EMODA to put a bold and funky twist on something traditional by going large scale and incorporating bright colors. In particular, window pane check seems to be having a moment. What’s the easiest way to wear this trend? Try a check pullover. Below, take a look at some non-runway examples from EMODA, ungrid, and elainegigi:
Trend 2: Egg Silhouette
Play with volume and proportion this fall by sporting a full, egg-shaped coat or other outerwear. As you can see, pieces like these can be both refined and feminine as well as dramatic and edgy. Here are some looks from dazzlin, Laguna Moon, and jóuetie that work this fun silhouette:
Trend 3: Quilting
Another versatile trend this upcoming season, quilted pieces can look both luxe and sporty. A quilted jacket gives instant impact, but quilted accessories can also work to add texture to any outfit. Something tells us we’ll be seeing this everywhere. Check out quilted pieces from brands like MERCURYDUO and MURUA:
Trend 4: Pencil Skirts
Body-con mini skirts were trending this summer, so consider knee-grazing pencil skirts a fall-worthy next step. This classic shape can be further dressed up with a fun patterned blouse or top, or like in the examples below, made casual with a sweatshirt or graphic tee. The ladies from dazzlin, elainegigi, and merryjenny show you how:
Trend 5: Houndstooth
Another fashion classic gets updated for fall. Take inspiration from the runway by combining patterned separates together for a look that you catch match now and mix later. GYDA and MURUA lead the way with houndstooth “setup” sets:
