#SCPonLocation: Fall Trends Recap
We found three major fall trends — animal print, plaid and sparkle and shine — in Milan, Paris and New York during Fashion Week. See our favorite street style looks and how to wear them this season.
Fall brings a full-on fashion safari with a range of on-trend animal prints in new ways (zebra print jackets, anyone?) and classic staples like fuzzy faux fur spotted coats. Those in search of a subtle take on the trend have many options, from slouchy boots in luxe leopard to playful giraffe print bags. The best part: animal prints are a neutral and pair effortlessly with denim, black, color, or for the more adventurous, other prints.
AllSaints’ leopard print Vincent Backpack is crafted from printed calf hair and lamb leather and features adjustable multi-use straps for versatility.
Bottega Veneta’s zebra print Mustard/Nero Shearling Jacket has a removable shearling intarsia collar and is paired with high waisted Nero Cotton Drill Pants.
Gianvito Rossi’s leopard print Hunter Pointed Toe Boot is crafted from luxe calf hair and is meant to be worn slouchy on the leg.
Dolce&Gabbana’s giraffe print Faux Fur Bag does double duty with a wrist strap or detachable shoulder strap and is embellished by calfskin patches, ayers snakeskin and rocker-style studs.
Mad For Plaid
Plaid — sometimes preppy and sometimes punk (thanks, Vivienne Westwood) — is this season’s versatile check print, arriving in head-to-toe suiting, quirky cool bags and boots and oversized silhouettes. And while there’s plenty of plaid to go around, fall’s statement-maker is an updated take on the sartorial star of Scotland, the tartan kilt, which looks decidedly fresh with a graphic t-shirt from Max Mara.
Fendi’s cowboy-inspired Cutwalk Check Print Leather Boots feature a pointed toe and a unique cutout wooden heel that works in the city or out on the prairie.
Maje’s statement-making Plaid Blazer and Plaid Pants are shown with a bold Multicolored Embroidered Shirt and embossed Crocodile-Style Leather platform loafers.
Balenciaga’s logo embroidered Chain Round S Plaid Shoulder Bag effortlessly goes from day to after-dark.
Giorgio Armani’s wool mohair Herringbone Sweater is worn with a Fur Stitch Jumper and plaid Oversize Trousers.
Sparkle and Shine
We don’t have to wait for evening to put on some sparkle and shine. Head-turning glittery stilettos, metallic pleated skirts and accessories with mirror accents are meant to be worn day or night and look modern when paired with the unexpected — denim, a moto jacket or a cozy sweater. One of our favorite fall looks is Bottega Veneta’s rose-grey velvet and wool coat with its crinkled texture and serene shine.
Jimmy Choo’s sparkling glitter Romy 100 pointy toe pumps feature a 100 mm heel for maximum impact.
REDValentino’s edgy Black Polyurethane Jacket is worn over an Encrypted Love Letter Turtleneck with an unforgettable silver Metallic Pleated Midi Skirt.
Bottega Veneta’s jewel-like Nero Karung Catena Knot Clutch is a straight from the runway and made from gold chains, nappa leather, metal studs and laminated cord.
Bottega Veneta’s robe-like Deco Rose/Light Grey Coat is rendered in velvet and wool and shown over a dropped waist Light Parme Silk Jumpsuit with a subtle flower print and loose fit.
