The Key to Chic: Fall 2016

New York Fashion Week has left hundreds of runway shows and countless styles in its wake. Now, we’re left daydreaming about when we can wear the looks we loved from the catwalk and left sifting through the looks we expect to be the biggest trends for Fall 2016. To make things easier for everyone, were breaking it all down right here with a list of the top 10 trends you’ll probably be wearing this fall.

  1. Think Pink

Forget what you thought you knew about Fall colors. Designers are inviting you to embrace a fresh palette, namely a rosy, pretty pink. Whether splashed on a coat or worn head to toe, it’s softening up Fall clothes, though it’s not as sweet as you might remember.

  1. All Checked Out

The pattern that took over on the runway was obvious and it seems designers across the board were having plaid thoughts. There were simpler, cleaner iterations, though some skewed more schoolgirl or even Western-inspired.

  1. Super Shine

Once upon a time, a long, long time ago, the thought of shiny gold attire reminded us of glitzy grandmas and Las Vegas party girls. However, thanks to an extremely stron showing on the Fall 2016 runways, metallics- specifically gold, are poised to be a seasonal standout.

  1. Turtlenecks Under Dresses

Why wait until next fall when you can start testing out this MEGA-trend, long-sleeve shirts layered under dresses right now? Not only is it easy for any body type to pull off, but it allows you to take those slinky slips, glitzy sequins and low-cut cocktail dresses out in broad daylight.

  1. Restrained Plaid

Fall runways usually bring more tartan than we can handle, but this year, labels like Calvin Klein and Victoria Beckham approached plaid in a much cleaner, subtler, muted way, and used the print on everything from outerwear to cocktail dresses.

  1. Off-the-Shoulder Cuts

Perhaps taking cues from the fact the over the shoulder cuts were massive in the retail space throughout 2015, designers amped up their offering for Fall 2016, showcasing dramatic blouses and luxe- looking dresses with the subtly sexy silhouette.

  1. Dusty Pink Paired with Yellow

At first glance, this modern color combination felt more suited for spring than fall, but designers such as Ulla Johnson and Delpozo were careful to use separates that had an autumnal feel such as turtlenecks and coats.

  1. Pantsuits

It’s most certainly no coincidence that fashion wasn’t shy about updating the dowdy pantsuit for fall- cough cough, Hillary Clinton. Slim, stylish and often colorful, the new power suit is just as suitable for a night out as it is for the boardroom.

  1. Velvet

When the chill sets in this Fall, you’ll be thrilled velvet is having its moment. Designers showcased the luxe fabric on dresses and suiting- even track suiting, making it the favored texture of the season.

  1. Granny Chic

With polished silhouettes and luxurious finishes, these coats feel as if they were taken straight from the closets of your chic grandmother.
