The Latest: Fall/Winter 2015

The end of fashion month means a few things- the return of seasonally appropriate dressing, a dire need for flats (to say our feet our questionable-looking is putting it lightly), but best of all, we, as editors, can start to spend way too much time theorizing about next season’s trends. So, here you are, a window into your future closet… You’re welcome.

1. Lady of Leisure
Monochromatic, printed, sleeveless or sleeved, 70’s leisure suits find modern appeal thanks to interesting necklines, streamlined trousers and unfussy layering.

2. B is for Bandana (and not just for the neck)
The bandana trend carries over from S/S ’15 becoming even more noticeable next season. Rather than strictly Western, the looks run the gamut from 70’s hippie to folksy to grunge.

3. Color-FUR-L
Fur may have been the most universal trend to hit the F/W ’15 runways, but not of the natural variety. Instead, a potpourri of saccharine pastels, spring greens and deep blues reigned supreme.

4. Thoroughly Modern Mini
Long hemlines be damned! Designers moved away from the midis of seasons past in favor of leg-bearing mini skirts. Cast in fall’s traditional plaids and tweeds, the message was clear: Cher Horowitz is back.

5. Up to the Neck
The hemlines may be rising, but so too are the necklines. Remember this: turtlenecks are the new yoga pants— they’re tight and they’re everywhere.

6. Mad for Plaid
Fall wouldn’t be fall without the season’s ubiquitous plaids, this time on sweatshirts, heath dresses, overcoats and culottes.

7. Button Up!
Double-breasted overcoats are fashion’s outer-layer du jour. Designers served up an array of neutral and color-coated options.

8. A Right to Bare Arms (and other lady things)
Sheer fabrics— whether lace, mesh, nylon or chiffon, left little to be desired. Pick a part and dare to bare (*lined-panties required)

9. Slow Motion for Me
If you happen to follow any Fashion Editor/Blogger/Buyer via Instagram then chances are you’ve seen as many slo-mo fringe videos as you have pictures of over-styled latte art. Spoiler alert: they’re both here to stay.

10. Glitter Bug
Head-to-toe sequins glistened down the runways causing editors (and their iPhones) to do more than a few double-takes. Most notably, we couldn’t get enough of the showstoppers at Prabal Gurung, Proenza Schouler and Altuzarra.
