STANDOUT LOOKS FROM PRE FALL 2017

Fashion show

Pre-Fall shows have now become a mainstay in the fashion calendar, being just as highly anticipated as the main seasonal shows. From Chanel to Oscar de la Renta, these were some of the standout looks from the Pre Fall 2017 runway shows.

Chanel 

Held at the Ritz in Paris, the Chanel Pre-Fall 2017 show was as glamorous and extravagant as you would expect. The collection itself is quite eclectic, but this means that there are looks available to suit just about every style. From metallic figure-hugging knit dresses to dramatic black leather capes to tiered skirts creating a beautifully classic silhouette, these looks each have a timeless quality about them, and are likely to be a huge hit next season.

Oscar de la Renta 

While the fantasy-like dresses created by Oscar de la Renta are always adored, the brand’s standout looks for Pre-Fall 2017 were focussed around the footwear instead. Evening flats take center stage, with everything from embellished slide-on shoes to embroidered slippers, and these were styled with such a wide range of garments, from formal ball gowns to casual sweaters, showcasing their versatility.

Coach 

Coach was another brand that produced quite an eclectic Pre-Fall 2017 collection, and this was also the first time that they put both womenswear and menswear on the runway together. The looks that really stood out were the boy/girl versions of different garments, such as biker jackets, parkas, varsity jackets and shearlings. Sequinned embroidered patches were also seen on the majority of garments, which were originally created as a collaboration with artist Gary Baseman but have now experienced quite the upgrade.

Nili Lotan 

Military influences could be seen throughout the Pre-Fall 2017 collection from Nili Lotan, with these hard and edgy looks contrasting with others that were sensuously feminine. While all of the pieces from this collection are worth mentioning, the star of the show was Lotan’s signature slip dress, which had been updated in a camouflage print silk chiffon, featuring velvet straps and a raw, frayed hemline.

Victoria Beckham 

Victoria Beckham’s Pre-Fall 2017 collection was exquisitely chic, with one of the key colors being a marled pink flecked with gray, and this could be seen on a wide range of garments. Beckham’s bias-cut slip dress was also a standout, as this featured a reverse pinstripe with black stripes on a white background, as well as a matching silk button-down shirt to make the dress office-appropriate. Plaid was also another popular choice, and this seems to be the case in many of the Pre-Fall 2017 collections, so is likely to be quite the trend next season.

As always, the Pre-Fall 2017 shows featured many standout looks that you are likely to soon see much more of as 2017 progresses. If you have been looking to update your wardrobe in time for the next season, then these pieces would be a great place to start.

FALL 2016 FASHION TRENDS

With every new season comes exciting new fashion trends, and the hottest ones for this fall are guaranteed to add some extra style to your look. From avant-garde ruffles to ultra-warm shearling, these will be some of the most popular trends for fall 2016.

Ruffles

Ruffles consistently make a comeback in the fashion world, but this season takes them to new heights with the over-the-top proportions that were seen on runways. While designers such as Christian Siriano and Cushnie et Ochs may have produced ruffled garments that many women would not find wearable, other top designers, such as Jill Stuart, have scaled these down into styles that would work for just about every occasion.

Velvet

Soft and luxurious, velvet has been making a slow return over the years, with short, black, velvet dresses being especially popular last year. This season sees many more designers making use of this classic fabric, manipulating it in ways that make it look fluid and ultra feminine, from the ruched styles at Preen to the sophisticated designs from Prada to the flowing and flirtatious separates from Monse and Alberta Ferretti.

Statement Furs

One of the most controversial of materials out there, fur has made its way back into the limelight for this fall. With both real and faux furs being featured, the main difference this season is that the material has been used in garments that truly make a statement. From the floral fur found at Michael Kors to the cotton candy fur coat created by J.Crew, a statement fur guarantees that not only will you be kept warm and comfortable, but you will also have all eyes on you wherever you may go.

Shearling

Shearling, which many do not realize is actually sheepskin, is another incredibly warm material, making it perfectly suited to the colder weather of fall. From just about every runway show, it would seem as though shearling is the go-to material for outerwear this season, with Celine in particular having some gorgeously cut coats. For those who want to wear shearling in a more unusual way, 1205 has used the material to create stunning dresses that will certainly inject some chic into your look.

Metallic Gold

Metallics in general are going to be seen everywhere this fall and winter, but gold will definitely be the color of choice for most people. Metallic gold is such a stand-out color, making it ideal for attention-grabbing pieces. For those who want a one-piece, Rachel Zoe has a sheer metallic gold maxi dress that would be ideal for seasonal get togethers, while Baja East has produced some metallic gold formal tops that can easily be paired with pants that you already own, instantly making this high fashion trend much more wearable. 

In terms of fashion, fall and winter 2016 are certainly set to be exciting. With everything from re-invented velvet to bright, sparkling metallics, these trends are each extremely distinct, but also versatile and wearable at the same time.

With spring almost officially upon us, now is the perfect time to begin your annual wardrobe overhaul, clearing out your winter layers and making space for hot spring looks. When it comes to filling all of that new space, there is no better place for shopping and style inspiration than the fashion capitals of the world. While it can be daunting navigating unfamiliar streets in search of the best buys, a fashion tour takes care of that, taking you to all of the places that a fashionista needs to visit. From the buzzing sidewalks of New York to the elegant cobblestones of Paris, these are some of the best fashion tours to take this spring.

 

New York

The fashion industry is a strong part of New York City’s past and present, making a fashion tour a great way to learn all about this, while being taken to the hottest shops and designer showrooms at the same time.

Milan

Some of the greatest Italian fashions and styles come from Milan, and a fashion tour of this city is ideal for those who love Italian fashion.

Each tour can be customized to ensure that it caters to your personal style and tastes.

 

Paris

Paris is known for its elegant style, but, for those who do not speak French, navigating the stylish boutiques can often be quite the challenge. Localers is an organization that personal shoppers and tour guides to take visitors around the fashionable Montmartre district. The tour begins at a Parisian café, where you can discuss with your guide, who will always be a professional designer, exactly what you are looking for, before being taken to the best shops for your personal style.

Most tours can be customized to suit the time frame that you have, so, if you are a passionate fashionista, keep these tours in mind the next time you are traveling to a fashion capital of the world.
