Caffè Latte Palette
Tan, beige, brown and other neutral shades are setting the tone for autumn as one of the biggest color trends this season. While the latte-like palette is particularly popular among minimalists, those who aren’t afraid to dress boldly can also wear this trend by styling with statement-making silhouettes, like the luxurious, shearling-trimmed Burberry trench coat that Jorja Smith sported at London Fashion Week.
For those who prefer a more vibrant-hued wardrobe, make getting ready in the morning easier than ever by investing in color-matching two-piece sets. Whether it’s a pantsuit in blue corduroy or a button-up and trousers combo in fall-ready mustard yellow, the monochromatic look is a no-brainer for day-to-night wear.
If wearing leopard print starts to feel a little unoriginal, switch things up by opting for pieces covered in the Riccardo Tisci-approved cow pattern. Appearing on a range of apparel and accessories from skirts to handbags, the animal print was definitely having a moo-ment during Fashion Month.
Lingerie as Daywear
From the satin bra modeled by Kaia Gerber at Givenchy, to the net corset and sheer stockings Bella Hadid wore at Mugler, lingerie-as-daywear seems to be a recurring theme on the runway this season. Off the catwalk, street style stars like Aleali May and Courtney Trop were also seen rocking the trend, with the former donning a vintage Dior bra with a denim ensemble, and the latter stepping out for the Paco Rabanne show in a pink slip and black lace maxi dress.
Long pleated skirts, especially ones designed with an asymmetrical hem, are making a strong comeback for Fall/Winter 2019. Ideal for pairing with shirts, tees, turtlenecks and blazers, the office-appropriate item can take any professional outfit to a new level of chic.
Sophisticated square-toe pumps and strappy sandals à la Daniel Lee‘s Bottega Veneta were a crowd-favorite this Fashion Month. If you’re among those who are obsessed with the #NewBottega, stock up on the brand’s often quickly sold-out silhouettes before they fly off the shelves.
Chunky Lug Soles
It’s about time to swap out your chunky dad sneakers for something new. We predict that leather boots and derbys constructed with heavy, platform soles will become some of the hottest footwear silhouettes this fall and winter. Don’t believe us? See top models Sora Choi and Adesuwa Aighewi test-driving the trend in the pictures above.
Western-style cowboy boots are forecasted to remain fashionable in the months to come, so it is not too late to hop on the bandwagon. If you’re thinking of splurging on a pair yourself, check out these options from GANNI, Fendi as well as Off-White™.
An accessory trend that’s been carried forward from the Spring/Summer 2019 season, itty-bitty handbags are still very much adored by fashion enthusiasts. Besides Jacquemus, brands such as Burberry and Balenciaga have also released their own take on the pint-sized arm candy.
