Fall is officially here, which means a brand new set of fashion and trends. While I am not a trend following person it is still important to be aware of the trends around you. Trends are good to be aware of for many reasons, you need to know what the economy is doing as well as culture and technology. Fall 2015 is known to be the mix matched season, meaning fashion will be going in a multitude of directions, for example there is no set hem length, style and color palate. You will see an abundance of embellishment which is a huge symbol of what our economy is doing. Embellishments are only in an abundance when the economy is doing well because they are more costly as well as time consuming to put into your garments. Then on the other side minimalism is still something that is on trend for this season especially among celebrity’s which shows they are dressing more like the common people. This season is like putting a puzzle together, however; that puzzle being your own and finding where your pieces fit together.
Color is my favorite thing to talk about because we all buy for one thing most of the time and that is color. When you go through a store you notice the colors you like then you try on pretty much everything in that color. This season there is emphasis on an odd color palate for a fall season with a lot of focus on pastels, however; you do not have to throw out your dark clothes for fall they are still very much so a trend for this fall. These colors are very odd for fall and look very much like spring but don’t let that deceive you the use of the pastels is more so in outerwear. You will see shades like blush, baby blue, maroon, marsala, midnight blue, lime green and hot pink.
The multitude of fabric this season is completely baffling to me, I can not even wrap my head around it. Textured fabrics are everywhere this season from fur to metallic fabrics. There is a large emphasis on plaid with in this seasons trends wither it be over sized or on chambray it is everywhere. Everything is leaning towards being more modern than anything. The fur trend has continued just with more of a vibrant color with in the fur. Metallic leather is very much so a trend this season as well as suede.
