6 Essential Pre-Fall Trends From the Runway to You

A big misconception about the Pre-Fall season is that it’s nothing more than a filler between the ever-so-popular summer and fall collections. However, in reality, Pre-Fall is a season of complexity, transition, and unparalleled style.

Pre-Fall 2019 has proven to be the most unique and fashionable season to date. With ambitious style choices hitting your favorite stores, we’ve decided to compile a list of trends to make you look fresh off the runway. Let's jump right in to some of our favorite fall fashion looks.

1.    Suit Up

This season, you can't go wrong with classic, suit inspired apparel. Seen on the runways of Givenchy, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, and Oscar de la Renta, and suit jackets have proven their spot as a prominent Pre-Fall trend. 

Want in on the movement? We carry a variety of women's suits, blazers and other on-trend pieces from your favorite designers to ensure maximum style.

2. Pleats and Thank Yous

The 80s are coming back, and stronger than ever. But don't freak out, we’re not talking about shoulder pads, leg-warmers, or mullets this season. Pleats are back in style, but with a much-needed update. Joseph Altuzarra brought front-pleated pants to the runway that offered a more flattering silhouette, while Stella McCartney showed off long pleated skirts in her fall fashion show.

According to Vogue, pleats are one of the hottest trends this year, especially pleated pants. This new take on an old classic is more tailored and refined, making this trend fresh, fashionable, and closet ready.

3. A Tad Plaid

Plaid has been a closet staple for years in women's fashion, but this season, it really shines. Typically seen on the runways of Burberry, other designers such as Coach, Giorgio Armani, and Michael Kors jumped on the hot seasonal trend.

Combining the classic plaid print with pleating creates the ultimate on-trend garment for this season, plaid pants. Go one step further... full plaid pant suits.

4. Silky Smooth

Is there anything better than comfort and style? Silk has both, and it’s one of the longstanding clothing trends that will always have a special place in our hearts. On the runway, Michael Kors featured romantic silk dresses, Dior showed masculine silk pants, and Thom Browne created silk bomber jackets in different colors and prints.

At Queen Anna House of Fashion, there’s no shortage of silk this season. Fashionistas, shop the trend in all forms: dreamy dresses, flowy bottoms, silk blouses, and even accessories - hello, silk scarf!

5. LOL = Lots of Leather

No matter the year, no matter the season, leather will always have a spot in your closet. This Pre-Fall season has featured head to toe leather looks shown by Sally LaPointe and Alexander McQueen in an array of colors, styles, and silhouettes. Rock a classic leather jacket over some jeans, or go a little bolder with a sexy leather skirt. For an even more unique look, layer a leather bodysuit under matching pants for that head to toe runway look.

6. Come Back to Earth

Neutrals and earth tones are hotter than ever and trust us, we've got you covered. From the runway shows of Victoria Beckham to Chanel, rich browns, taupes, and beiges have been worn from head to toe, creating a luxurious, simple, and editorial look. 

This look has been seen head to toe on many celebrity style icons, including Kendall Jenner, Rhianna, Gigi Hadid, and Duchess Megan Markle this season, proving the neutral color pallet compliments any style. 

Want to add more interest? Contrast the neutral pallet with a splash of color in a necklace, a pair of shoes, or even a bag! We have dozens of resources on how to accessorize the right way, and the right pieces to do it with! 

Regardless of how you choose to wear it, this trend looks great on anyone, in any way.
