Have you noticed something lately?
One of the BIGGEST fashion rules has been thrown out the window this year.
Fall Trends 2016
Extra long sleeves are a big trend for fall 2016.
Remember stylists and those “in the know” telling you that your clothes should always fit?
Oversized clothing and especially extra long sleeves are HUGE (ha ha! pun intended) this year.
I suppose that this trend comes along with a personal assistant for hand washing, using the bathroom, eating or basically doing anything else that requires the use of your hands or fingers. Everyone knows that the use of your hands is totally overrated. Thank heavens designers have finally worked that into their clothing.
Am I terribly old fashioned thinking that clothing should fit the body?
Maybe I’m just jealous because I cannot rock this trend without looking and feeling ridiculous, although in winter I’m sure it is a great way to keep your hands warm.
One thing I see repeatedly in fashion shows is very thin models wearing what looks like giant’s clothing. Is that fashionably dishevelled? Or just, ” I had a banging night and am too hungover to care so I grabbed my monster boyfriend’s gigantic
sleeping bag sweater.” Cause I’ve been there but I didn’t call it a trend.
Fall trends 2016 – Velvet
This trend has been going on for years. How can they call a classic fabric like velvet a trend?
Anyhoo…I adore this trend. I may own several pairs of boots and about five or more blazers/jackets in velvet. I was ahead of the trend in acquiring my collection.
More Fall Trends 2016 – Choker Necklaces
Brilliant if you have a long skinny neck and are tall and willowy otherwise, they can visually shorten you by a couple of inches immediately.
Ruffles are nice if you don’t have much of a chest and are looking for some extra padding.
No one rocks a ruffled blouse better than my friend Melanie from Bag and a Beret. Seriously…does it get any better than this? Nope…I think not.
Metallic is hot and I’m loving it. I just picked up this gold leather blazer and added it to my Etsy store. Donna Summers made me do it. Disco is not dead!
Turtlenecks Under Dresses
Turtlenecks under dresses is not a new thing, but I like it. When you live in a climate that can get to -20 C in winter you’re wearing turtlenecks under your PJs. Maybe that’ll be the 2017’s trend! You read it here first folks! Wearing plain PJs is so last season. You simply must add a turtleneck! Of course, if you get night sweats you’ll need a “tear-away turtleneck”. Someone at Zara get on that right away!
Plaid is always popular in Fall. Apparently, plaid overcoats are extra special this year though.
I *may* have bought a long plaid blazer from Holt Renfrew at one of my local consignment stores about a month ago. I swear I did this before I knew it was a trend.
I paired it with a velvet midi dress, one of my most worn finds this season.
Dusty Pink And Yellow
Dusty pink and yellow looks wonderful on models and makes me look like I’m about to heave. I’ll be passing that trend by but have picked up some awesome dusty pink booties. I’ll be sharing the rhinestone DIY with you in the next few days.
I suppose we have Hilary Clinton to thank for bringing back this look. It can look super chic, I’m still on the fence about this trend for myself, probably just because I haven’t come across one I like yet while thrifting. I do believe it can be very elongating.
Fall Florals are a huge love of mine. They have been for years.
