Fall’s Must-Have Trends
August 30, 2017
Sure, the cold never really comes to Florida, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the new-season fashion. Here’s the Waterside Shops guide to fall’s hottest fashion trends — all of it 100% Florida appropriate.
Space out in futuristic fashion
The fall catwalks were awash in silver. At Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel, and elsewhere, the metallics were, of course, glamorously glitzy, but also futuristic, hinting of space travel and galaxies far, far away. Our favorite looks of the season: Saint Laurent’s to-die-for thigh-high boots, embroidered all over with crystals, available for pre-order at Saks Fifth Avenue; Halston Heritage halter-neck gown, also from Saks Fifth Avenue; Michael Kors’ Cate crackled silver leather shoulder bag.
Animal print is back, and it still counts as a neutral. For extra fashion points, mix patterns: slip a Breton-striped tee under Louis Vuitton’s leopard jacquard jacket; amp up Michael Kors’ leopard-print calf-hair miniskirt with a flamboyant floral shirt; or sharpen up a Salvatore Ferragamo shell top with some pinstripes.
Yee-haw. Americana will be big news this fall, so channel your inner cowgirl with Ralph Lauren’s soft suede moto jacket, Tory Burch’s Sawyer studded satchel bag, and Free People’s embroidered boots with a Western heel.
Velvet in jewel tones
Plush velvet will make its way into fashion lovers’ wardrobes this fall in rich jewel tones. We love Stella McCartney’s ruched minidress, available for pre-order from Saks Fifth Avenue; Gucci bag in raspberry velvet with metal bees embellishments; and, for a look that hits two of the season’s trends, Miss L Fire floral velvet ankle boots, from Anthropologie.
Fashion’s maximalist moment has seen flowers everywhere the past few seasons, and fall 2017 will be no exception. Celebrate autumn with warm, dusky flowers: Anthropologie’s statement floral jumpsuit; and Gucci’s floral snake print dress on the softest silk; and for everyday, casual chic, JOHNNY WAS’s cotton floral sweater.
