Now Trending: Fall '16

It always feels a little odd getting excited about Fall fashions. Summer feels like it just got here, and I've yet to 1) have a chic picnic 2) sun myself on a boat 3) eat a Sno-Cone 4) do an infinite number of 'summer things' that I pretend to check off my imaginary list before Fall arrives; chilly and abruptly. But alas, as neon notebooks and mechanical pencils blind me strolling through Target, I realize that Fall really is just around the corner. The humidity is winning the war against my hair, I have hardly a hint of a sun tan, and *poof* - it's August.

So, in an effort to recapture the feeling of possibility and 'who-do-I-want-to-be-this-year,' I dove into the Autumn/Winter runway shows and campaigns to scour what's going to be hot hot hot this season. It's still 90 degrees outside, but imagining myself with an apple cider clutched in my mittened hand, donning the Fall trends is making me long for cooler days. I hope you're getting as giddy as I am. 

Dusty Pink: this soft, transitional shade is going to be everywhere this fall. It compliments every skin tone incredibly, and I'm especially adoring this 70's vibey jumpsuit on Gwyneth.

Dark Fairytale: Drapey, dramatic dresses and dark Victorian floral prints are a cool, mysterious take on dresses for fall. Peeks of lace and gilded details give them a moody, ultra-feminine edge.

Peekaboo Lace: This trend certainly isn't new this season, but it's been given a dark, flirty revamp in shades of navy, slate, and oxblood. Play around with gold jewelry for a hipper feel.

The New Pantsuit: The 80's power suit is back but infinitely cooler- think fun, patterened separates and dramatic shapes that will look just as chic in the office as they will grabbing appetizers and wine with your girlfriends.

Boy's Club: The menswear take gets toughened up, shredded, and too-cool-for-school.

The Bomber: The bomber is this season's peacoat. Playful shades, patterns, and graphic prints give these jackets a fun, punky spin. Versatility is key with the bomber: it looks just as cool paired with denim as it does slung over a cotton dress.

Cozy Everything: Thankfully, big, chunky knits will never go out of style. Intricate stitching gives this fisherman sweater a modern feel, and layering it with soft socks and a mug of hot cocoa makes the perfect excuse to be snowed in.
