The designers have made me one happy lady this Fall-Winter. They realized that women could be unapologetically feminine, edgy, and powerful simultaneously; I love it. Additionally, I like some of the menswear-inspired trends, specifically the comeback of the pantsuit. Anywho, let me show you what’s putting a hurting on my bank account lately.
FW 2017 women’s fashion designers realized that we can be unapologetically feminine, edgy, & powerful simultaneously; I’m loving it!
Breaking Down The 7 Fall-Winter 2017 Fashion Trends I Can’t Wait to Rock!
- Trend # 1: Plaid
I adore plaid, especially anything with a 70s retro vibe! I’ve loved it for as long as I can remember so you can imagine how delighted I am to see it plastered on everything from pants to trench coats to boots to bags. Designers created the print in bright colors reminiscent of the 70s which is evident in this top. Feels sort of like taking a bit of summer with us into the fall! Somehow, plaid is now the IT print for the season, and I have no complaints whatsoever! I picked up this dress to wear with a pair of faux suede over the knee boots, and I’ll style these pants with a red top & blazer, possibly.
- Trend # 2: Velvet
I remember when wearing velvet was only for special occasions. Not anymore! From tops to pants to dresses to shoes to accessories, velvet is everywhere! The rich colors like plum, emerald green, rust, navy blue, and even chocolate brown are perfect for the season. I’m excited that they’re back this year and can’t wait to wear these jeans!
- Trend # 3: Winter Florals
What’s not to love about flowers? I don’t know about you, but I’m so happy to see that florals are one of the top fall-winter 2017 fashion trends. I’m not ready to put my florals away, and I’m in my happy place every time I see the floral prints weaved into another trend, like velvet. This dress is a perfect example of what I mean. Isn’t it stunning? Now to find somewhere to wear it! The great thing about florals this season is the 70s retro vibe, like plaids, intertwined with darker hues like navy, green, red, brown, and more!
- Trend # 4: Power Red
Red, no POWER RED, is THE color to have in your closet & the fall-winter fashion trend to embrace this season! In the past, I’ve had a hard time finding red pieces except around Valentine’s Day and Christmas, so I’m thrilled to find some showstopper items online & in stores. In fact, I found everything from shoes, dresses, skirts & coats in bright reds to colors as dark as Malbec wine. If attention is your goal, red is your color! It oozes femininity, confidence, boldness, & power. Designers showcased models clad in head-to-toe red, but if that’s out of your comfort zone try adding a few red accessories to your outfit to pull off the trend. I am dying to get my hands on these fabulous pants that are the perfect shade of power red for me!
- Trend # 5: Metallic & Sparkly
Last year I purchased this dress, and I fell in love with the color silver. In the past, I shied away from wearing metallics & sparkly clothing unless I was going to a special event. I’ve ditched that notion and am so happy that metallics, silver, gold, & rose gold, are readily available this season to add a bit of pizzazz & spice to my outfits. You can easily pull off the metallic look by wearing some fly boots with a midi skirt or dress or by pairing a cute clutch with your outfit. My closet recently accepted theseshoes and boots as members of the family! I also ordered this sequin skirt; can’t wait to receive it! And for these booties, I need a sponsor…quick!
- Trend # 6: Vintage Fur (Real & Faux)
Remember drooling over the fur coats Diana Ross wore in the movie “Mahogany”? If so, you know the type of fur that’s on trend this year. The colors are vibrant, but not in your face like they were last year. Think neutrals with an opulent feel and look that revels in sassiness, femininity, confidence, & class! I purchased a fur stole last year, so I’m eager to wear it this winter.
- Trend # 7: Trench Coats
This trend is a staple in most women’s closets. However, this year, the textures, prints & colors have been upgraded to be more contemporary. You’ll find trench coats in vinyl, leather, denim, gingham & checkered print, metallics, and more! I like this one and this one, and I’m hoping someone will be kind enough to gift me with this fantabulously, dope metallic trench coat!
Just in case you’re wondering, these are the fall-winter 2017 fashion trends you probably will NOT see me jumping on the bandwagon to wear anytime soon: Western trends & plastic chic. There’s a VERY HIGH probability that I won’t be wearing these!
