In case you missed fashion week, or haven’t had time to drool over all of the upcoming trends for fall, I’ve got you covered. One of my favorite trends I saw on the runway was fringe! It’s so fun and flirty, and gives off a romantic feel if paired with the right accessories. Michael Kors debuted the trend in overcoats, handbags and dresses (below). Other designers like Phillip Lim, Herve Leger, and Derek Lam also showcased the trend on their runways. We’ve seen fringe before on the runways but what’s different about it now, is that the fringes are softer and ornamented in a delicate manner. Be on the look out for fringe everything come this fall, whether it be accessories, garments, outerwear or detailing!
Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week wrapped up yesterday and has left us lusting over the latest designer looks for fall. Without a doubt, white is the new, unexpected “it” color for next season. While this light hue may seem like an unusual choice considering its contrast against the standard darker autumn shades of black, navy, olive, and plum, it definitely had a strong presence on the runway nevertheless. Derek Lam utilized black accents on his white pieces while Alexander Wang paired all white ensembles with black footwear. Rachel Zoe chose to mix stark white fabrics with cream knits. If you’re somewhat hesitant about pulling off the trend or wearing white after Labor Day, you could always try pairing a more subtle cream piece with statement items like a fur vest or a killer pair of black boots.
