Last week, New York City was all abuzz with Fashion Week shows. If you work in the fashion industry or are just a fan, it is the most exiting and important time of year. When the designers show at Fashion Week, they are revealing their Fall 2015 collections. This gives the retail buyers and magazine editors a preview of what’s to come. So, let us put upcoming spring fashion on hold, and jump ahead to next fall. My favorite season is fall which is why I look forward to this fashion week the most. However, this year’s 70’s inspired collections had me running the other way. I can never get behind the psychedelic prints and bell-bottom pants. That being said, fall styles weren’t all inspired by the decade of love. Because of the season, there was an abundance of luxurious fur, textured layers, caped outerwear, and stunning embellishments. Unlike most seasons where rich fall colors shine, these collections presented a lot of neutrals, pastel pinks, and bright oranges. There were five trends that resonated with me, as I saw them appearing in several shows, and hope that they will influence where fashion styles are going next fall. Share with us which trend do you see yourself wearing!

For the second year in a row, fringe has made a big statement on the runway. Several designers featured it from subtle to dramatic details. You may think that this trend is a tricky one to pull off; it works really well on coats, bags, and skirts.
I, for one, was happy to see capes appear in many of the designers’ collections. Fall is all about outerwear and nothing is more fabulous than a cape. Some of the designs are polished, while others are flashier with vibrant colors and patterns. Whichever way you wish to wear this trend, I encourage you to give it a try!
Saying that plaid will be a trend next fall is like saying florals are big for spring; it goes without saying. This season, the designers offered several different takes on this preppy style with bigger, bolder patterns.
There was so much orange on the runways this season. After all, it’s a color highly associated with fall. You don’t have to wear it head-to-toe like the designers suggest, but if you’re going to wear any color next fall, make sure it’s orange.
This season’s 70’s vibe may not have been my cup of tea, but the glamorous bohemian look left me intrigued. It seems that these silhouettes are the style of the future, but the designers have given it a modern update that I like. The boho shapes and fabrics are beautiful with vibrant prints and flowy hemlines.
Everywhere you looked, a model walked down the runway wearing fur. Whether it was a full fur coat or draped around the neck like a stole, it’s clearly going to be expected in your fall wardrobe; faux or otherwise.
