With every season there seems to be a new high fashion trend going around. With NYFW just ending we can feed off of some of those designers and what they were going for.
We always wonder though, well at least I do, who starts off what the trend will be for the season. Now this might be something obvious and my mom brain just took over but who knows.
For myself, a trend is a guideline. I’ll take a look at it and I will either incorporate it or just be like, naw… I’ll go where the wind blows. These fall trends for 2018 have my eye like a deer in headlights. They are definitely things that I can get on board with. Although fall time has yet to get me on the pumpkin train.
We will be taking a look at the following must have/do fall trends for 2018:
Prints: plaid, gingham and animal print are big ones.
Shine: those 80 metallic’s
Layering: there may have been some over layering on some runways but we got the point.
Bright colors: hint of the 90’s flair
Men’s style jackets: the blazers with some shoulder pads are back.
For me this is like, how is this fall? I’m use to brown, ivory, black… BLAH but fall seems to be stepping up and this can make an easy transition from summer to autumn. With bright colors; it’s not like all over bright colors but more so hints here and there when you are wearing a print to color block or tie it in. Check out my previous blog with just my red top but I was layering with black and a print and a hint of shine with my pleather leggings.
Plus Size Holographic V Neck Romper $25.89
I have never been big on men’s fashion but done right on the female body the men’s blazer/jackets are a hit. Tailored to the female frame, in any size, but has the basic shape of when you see it, it looks more like men’s wear is highly flattering on a woman frame.
Plus Size Striped Double Breasted Blazer $30.09
Most of these trends are 2 for 1 deals. With the blazer you are getting that look but also layering, if you get a metallic you are hitting that with some color. The prints usually have some type of color so that is a 2 for 1 right there. So you don’t technically have to layer on so much to where you are uncomfortable. Or just way to clashy because for me there is still a point to where you just have to say, okay I can stop now or take away some things. But then again fashion has no rules; as long as you are comfortable, feel flattered and are wearing the clothes and the clothes aren’t wearing you. I say you are Gucci.
Plus Size Faux Leather Leggings $18.89
This was fun to look at what was coming down the runway but also take a look at some Milan or Paris runway shows. If you have followed the history of fashion or are intrigued overseas are way ahead of the western hemisphere. We are just now trying to catch up. What they do with fabric is highly interesting to tell a story. Do you prefer the everyday fashion or taking a look at the high fashion runway shows?
As always stay glam, stay you and always tell yourself…
I love me, some ME!
