Fringe Benefit

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!

Not your Grandma’s Quilt

Quilting isn’t just for your grandma, but it is the best way to warm up as the weather gets colder! Not only are quilted fabrics super comfy for Fall, but they’ve been huge on the runway this season! Designers like Burberry, Thom Browne, J. Mendel, and Michael Kors all have followed suit with the quilted trend.  What I love about the quilted fabrics this season is that the trend is mostly seen in outerwear, especially leather (my personal favorite trend for Fall), like the Christioper Kane jacket below! The hard leather and soft quilting contrast for the perfect edgy and feminine look that you can dress up or down.
