f/w trends

Shades of red are all over runways for fall/winter fashion shows.

Okay, some of you may have read the title and thought to yourself, "Fall and winter are forever away, why is she already talking trends???" Well, in the fashion industry, this is when fall and winter trends get reported, and just like every fashion blogger, I got excited and needed to be the messenger. So without further ado, let’s talk trends for the upcoming seasons!

1.) Red

Not to say “I told you so,” but this is something I called in my spring trends earlier this year. Red was seen in almost every show this season, just look at Givenchy’s collection, for example. Red is such an easy color to work with. It is bold and matches a variety of things. If you are not a red person, it is an easy accent color!

2.) Plaid

I had a feeling this was going to happen, being that gingham was in for spring. Plaid is being modernized by size, color and location. Trends even show people wearing plaid on a different plaid pattern.

3.) Deconstruction

Not only limited in denim, but deconstruction is happening in dresses, pants, jackets and more. The effects are looking more modern and futuristic rather than having a grunge and laid-back effect.

4.) Western

I am surprised this look hasn’t come around sooner for F/W because when you think about it, it is a perfect fit. Western is all about warm colors, statement hats, leather, suede and frills/fringe.
