Fall may have just arrived but Spring has been in full bloom at New York, London, Paris and Fashion Weeks (plus the Emmy Awards!) this month. There's something about seeing all of the upcoming trends, prints, colors, and styles, of both men’s and women’s clothing, that help us get through the upcoming chilly winter months.
Because it's so difficult to wait until the ground unthaws, we've rounded up a few of our favorite trends that we're all for infusing into our wardrobe immediately.
Spotted at Fashion Week New York, Carolina Herrara, Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs and more featured polka dots from head to toe. Add a dash of dots to your look by layering on a mix of our favorite materials, silk, and cashmere, with this luxuriously soft scarf by Chan Luu.
If you're rocking tights with a dress or skirt to the office, subtly add polka dots to your outfit with a pair of Commando sheer black tights. A new twist on the classic solid color tight.
Most notably a late spring fashion trend, we're all for adding winter white and other light shades into your weekly wardrobe. Tory Burch and Mara Hoffman showcased bright white on the runway in the form of workwear - blazers, trousers, and blouses.
Instead of reaching for your tried and true rich jewel tones or black pieces this season try a lighter shade like grey or white to make your outfit pop. We love this grey tweed blazer by SOIA & KYO as it's a heavy-weight (and comfortable!) winter fabric in a flattering fit with single-button closure. Ideal for layering and feel like you're living in luxury!
Netting and mesh are particularly perfect fabrics for warmer weather, but we see no reason why they can't make an appearance now. The Emmys red carpet was full of stunning gowns with touches of sheer necklines, sleeves and more.
Coveted leather brand, Bano eeMee, created a luxurious option that is completely on-trend. Made out of sheer organza with touches of buttery-soft leather, the "Agua" jacket is a true statement piece.
Another fabulous option is to layer a cardigan or blazer over a sheer turtleneck or top, like Commando's Chich Mesh Long-Sleeve Top - throw a dress on over your shirt if you're looking to totally transform your look.
Spring/Summer collections at New York Fashion Week were full of matching colored sets, and some designers, such as Proenza Schouler, took it a step further by matching a purse to the full outfit. If you're a fan of color, or if you have one favorite color that you try to incorporate into your weekly wardrobe this look is for you.
Remember, punchy spring colors don't need to be front and center to jump in on this trend. We're all for cozy winter sets in the same color. For a fall weekend chic look try pairing Maison de Papilion's "Eros" cashmere hoodie and matching "Jessica" joggers in a yummy cream with booties or sneakers. Outfit complete!
Both the Moschino and Marni runway shows at Milan Fashion Week were full of pop art, watercolor, and bold prints. We're big fans of patterns, both delicate and bold, and this season we're loving the KES slip dress in a dreamy silk watercolor print. It's not oversaturated with color, making it a perfect seasonal option, and to top it off, it's also available in a silk tank - an ideal piece to take you from day to night with the quick change of jacket.
