Fall 2015 Fashion Update

This Fall’s fashion statement is comfort, confidence and creativity. From bohemian fringe to tall boots with sweater dresses, from edgy moto jackets to the democracy of plaid, there is something to fit any personality. One thing for sure, the trends are embracing the season – it’s style with comfort. Here are some of my Fall 2015 women’s fashion stand-outs.

Fringe

Something about the ruffle of leaves and cooler breeze brings the Bohemian vibe to this season. The lightness of fringe is a perfect pairing then. This Fall, we’ll see fringe in apparel, boots, bags and even home design. Word of caution, treat it like an accessory – less is more – use fringe on one piece, not both, to avoid the costume look.

Plaid

This Fall fashion trend is a regular each year but I think much more pronounced in 2015. Plaid button shirts are particularly welcome this season. I am seeing plaid in a variety of colors too, so experiment with new combinations for a fresh look.

Poncho

One of the big standouts this fall is a play on proportion. While in the past, it might have been a study of geometric oddities, this year it’s about scale. Poncho is a great Fall staple that helps extend that scale. Wear it with skinny jeans or pencil skirt, leather pants or a dress, it will take your outfit to another level. And, let’s not forget it’s oh-so-cozy for the chilly weather.

Sweater Coats

On the subject of comfort, sweater coats are a big hit this Fall. The most important aspect is the length – the longer, the better. Thicker, wool fabrics make an even stronger statement – one of confidence and grace.

Utility & camouflage

Utility apparel is functional and the colors suit the season. It’s masculine, yet very comfortable, so accessories are very important. What’s unique for this Fall fashion season is that you’ll see not only utility jackets but also skirts, shorts and even dresses.

Dropped Waist

I haven’t mentioned sweater dresses – though it’s as popular as ever among Fall 2015 fashion trends – it’s a staple. One dress that’s worth mentioning for this year’s structure popularity contest is a dress with a dropped waist. Whether in cotton, tweed or silk, these dropped waist dresses will turn some heads!

Moto

The paso double of Fall fashion, moto is a solid feature each Fall. From cropped leather jackets to zipper accessories, it’s a time tested fashion trend.

Chevron

Some patterns deserve a special mention, and chevron is special this Fall. Perhaps, it’s partially due to the popularity of black and white – a solid trend but not one I’m going to point out here. Or, perhaps, it’s the print trend that is a frequent hit in the Fall similar to florals in the Spring. I think Chevron is a stand-out this season because you will see it on a variety of pieces, not just the typical coat.
