Fall has arrived and so have fall trends. However, some spring/summer looks are rolling over into the new season with an added winter twist. The simplistic look of a classic white t-shirt worn over a pair of distressed denim remains a strong look. But fall is all about outerwear and this year, designers are giving us plenty of variety to style with.
To take your effortless t-shirt and jeans look from day to night, simply add one of this season’s most sought after jackets. Sequence jackets are already all the rave, this look has recently been inspired by signature stage costumes worn by the late King of Pop. Jackets with embellishments on the shoulders are also a strong look for the season. These eye-catching jackets provide the right amount of glamour to make any simple outfit shine. Finish this look with a sexy pair of ankle booties and clutch and you’ll look red carpet ready in an effortless way.
Boyfriend blazers continue to be in the spotlight. Heavier emphasis on the detailing, like the lining on the cuff sleeves, will be the newest design to revamp this jacket. This jacket is still worn best draped over a pair of shorts; of course, try this look with a pair of over the knee boots to coordinate this style with its current season. The crop motorcycle jacket is another returning contender. Look for this jacket to draw additional attention to the exposure of zippers, another revolving trend of seasons past.
Military jackets may be the most influential jacket of all for fall. Designers like Vivian Westwood are creating strong silhouettes with a huge focus on exquisite detailing. Free people adds a feminine touch to its military jacket by adding ruffles along its closure while Moschino’s military jacket features all the bells and whistles including an asymmetrical button closure, tri-tone stripes at the collar, pockets and sleeve ends, not to mention extended shoulder accents, proving once again, that shoulders play a significant role in fashion this season.
