Guide to Fall Styles
September 30, 2015
The only word for this fall’s style is luxe. Back in February, the fall/winter 2015 fashion week shows in New York, Paris, London and Milan were dominated by luxurious, tactile fabrics and finishes like brocade, lace and patchwork. Add neo-Victorian and oriental elements, and you have a thoroughly opulent season. Now, those styles are off the runways and in stores, ready for you to make them your own. Here’s The Mall at Millenia’s guide to fall style for 2015.
Vogue called out Tory Burch as one of the frontrunners of this fall’s luxurious interiors-inspired look—and the very skirt that Tory wore to her own runway show is available in store now at The Mall at Millenia. Inspired by the markets of Marrakech, it features a kilim-rug print in warm winter reds and cool gray blues, in a soft, sensuous stretch knit. Pair with a chic white silk blouse for a perfectly autumnal daytime look.
And you’ll see those warm winter reds cropping up elsewhere, too: Alexander McQueen, Givenchy and Oscar de la Renta sent models down the runway in deep, plummy tones, and now other designers have followed suit to make burgundy the color of the season. Michael Kors has built a whole lookbook around the hue: standout pieces include the polkadot Jacquard dress and these ankle-zip leather pants.
Meanwhile, the big texture of the season was lace: Valentino, Alberta Ferretti, Salvatore Ferragamo and Yves Saint Laurent were just a few of the designers to work neo-Victorian lace into their shows. Saint Laurent has a to-die-for skater dress in black lace, as well as a flared miniskirt in black lace, for more casual wear. Meanwhile, AllSaints’s Moirety embroidered skirt gives a modern silhouette, with its high waist and narrow styling, and adds on-trend gossamer detailing inspired by a vintage ink drawing.
And finally, some winter coverage. Stylish women the world over—even in sunny climes like ours—have been swooning over Burberry’s new-season ponchos and trench coats. Long the go-to brand for the classic trench, they’ve mixed it up with a series of heavenly prints that are perfectly in line with the season’s luxe, interiors-inspired look: check out the mineral blue and elderberry designs. Even more fashion-forward—as well as heart-meltingly tactile—is their patchwork print detail poncho with navy trim, which hits every fall fashion trend worth hitting.
Has it ever been more obvious why fall is every fashionista’s favorite season?
