Fall 2016 Style Trends

Summer came and went in quite literally, what feels like, the blink of an eye. It seems as though I just did a Summer Trends post. Well, with that being said, we must start gearing up and getting ready for a lovely Autumn season ahead of us. Autumn is by far my favorite season – the lack of outwear to cover up all the glam underneath! It’s the perfect street style weather, and there’s no excuse for not taking advantage of it! Therefore, I pulled some of the more realistic looks from the runways so you can know what to look for on your next shopping trip to get ready for Fall 2016.

Dramatic Furs & Shearling Jackets

This isn’t a trend, really… This is a cold weather thing. Fur will forever be trending!

Long, Bell Sleeved Blouses

Oversized is by far my favorite style. It’s beautiful and so stylish! This hits all the nails on the head.

Velvet

Velvet is here to stay for 2016. This isn’t just trending in the clothing department, the runway is telling us that Velvet everything is this seasons must.

Puffer Jackets

This has to be my least favorite look of the season. I do love a tea length puffer jacket, but that’s about the extent of it. I find them to have a classy appeal but the rest can be perceived as somewhat tacky.

Suits / Menswear Inspired

Great Gatsby-esque, except the woman are in charge this time around. There’s nothing more demanding and powerful than a woman in suit, and lets not forget, epically stylish!

Sweatshirts

This trend is one you have to be careful with – like the puffer jacket, there are limits. There are chic sweatshirts and there are ones you just shouldn’t leave the house in. This trend doesn’t mean you can just throw on any sweatshirt and be stylish! Forever 21 has some great pullovers with funny logos and trendy styles to them.

Capes & Capelets

This piece is the epitome of Fall. These are easily stylish and so classy!

Cold Shoulder

Take this summers off the shoulder trend and alter it a bit and you get the singular cold shoulder for this Fall. This is a unique one!

Kimchi Blue…

Dress: Urban Outfitters

Shoes: Zara

Sunnies: RayBan

It was an ongoing joke on the 4th of July to count and see how many people complimented this dress, and there were so many we couldn’t even keep track! It’s just so casually, effortlessly beautiful and elegant. I know I use the term effortless quite a lot, but if I could erase every other time I’ve used it and change the definition of it to this dress, I would. Though the front is very lowcut, thanks to my lack of packages it didn’t seem revealing. It’s very light, breezy and cool in the heat, but does shrink in the wash! I almost lost it when I struggled to button it around my ribs, but as the day went on it loosend back to its original fit. It’s a true beauty!

Sultry Monday…

I went a little wild with the inspo’ for this Sultry Monday, but there was so much to be inspired by and I was on a role (; Simple, casual chic is still the current vibe and artsy, vintage, unique attitude.

All Tied Up…


Top: Emma & Sam (sold out… similar here)

Bottoms: Tommy Hilfiger (similar here)

Sneakers: Topshop (similar here)

Heels: Aldo (last season)

 

I’m so much in love with this Emma & Sam shirt, that I bought two in different colors! It was reduced tremendous amounts and was selling out like crazy! I’ve had my eye on it for months and months, so luckily I was able to get it before it was gone. I figured I would post it with the two different types of shoes; going comfortably casual with sneakers and a bit more glam with the heels. The choker I made myself by cutting up an old black tee, and the Tommy jeans I also ripped myself, so instead I listed you an amazing similar looking pair from Missguided that I adore. Ciao!

I love the whole concept of wearing a sweater over a dress! It gives you a cozy, effortlessly chic look and is so unique! This sweater is a bit short on me, so it was perfect to wear over this dress, which has a waist that flares around the tummy area. This could go the same for a skirt and sweater combo. It’s great for sunny, yet chilly Autumn days for a meeting over some coffee or a lunch date. Try this trick at home!
