So, I don’t know about you but all of my social media outlets are FULL of NYFW looks.
Some are celebrities, some designers, some bloggers, some photographers – but they are all there and have been documenting it, which has been rad to follow along.
Rather than FOMO, I’ve been super inspired. I feel like the trends for fall / winter are RIGHT up my alley & thanks to social media, I was able to get a sneak peek without the anxiety of crowds.
like LOVE what I see.
I’m talking lots of velvet, leather, silk, lace… major boudoir vibes.
Here are the trends I am anticipating for fall & I cannot wait to stock my closet!
⚜ Blue Velvet
There is something about jewel toned velvets that just scream fall, but I think the colour of the season will be blue (with burgundy or grey being the close second).
Expect to see more blue velvet everything from clothing, to accessories, to cosmetics (yes, cosmetics), to footwear.
This is def the colour AND texture of the season!
MILD: Blue velvet sunglasses or a blue velvet choker
WILD: Blue knee high velvet boots like these or the body suit above.
SHOP THE LOOK :
⚜ Pajama-inspired satins & silks
Now, it’s no secret, but I am LOVING this style. Pretty much, think your favourite Victoria’s Secret satin PJ’s made for wearing out.
In fact, I even saw an Instagram of wearing VS’s satin pajama top (these PJs are my fave btw – I have the short sleeved ones too) with jeans. To be completely real, this is one of my go to “morning mimosas / coffee” looks whenever I am on vacation (guilty from last weekend). I throw on yoga pants / leggings and keep my button down.
From the relaxed fit, to the clingy silky fabrics, and contrast piping, this trend is meant for being seen outside of the bedroom.
I am TOTALLY digging the robe style jackets (DUH), and the matchy matchy separates.
MILD: A silky button down with flared denims and a satin sash belt or this lace skirt under a midi skirt as a sexy slip & a peek of lace – a super easy way to dress up a cheap cotton skirt!
WILD: Matchy matchy separates are the way to go! I am DYING over this pink satin reformation “suit”.
SHOP THE LOOK:
⚜ High-Neck bows & lace
So I am loving this look. It’s sexy yet conservative. I find the high neckline so flattering and girly. I especially love it when it is white lace with black details, like a velvet bow.
One that is really catching my eye is this bustier from Victoria’s Secret. It would be super fun to layer with, especially topped with a leather jacket (I have a major thing for lace + leather).
You can easily replicate this look by wearing a white button down, buttoned all the way up and finish with a black velvet or satin bow (three // five) – or a black statement necklace like option 7.
MILD: a long sleeve ruffle neck with a black pussybow – meow!
WILD: layer with a sexy bralette under a low cut blouse or a sheer lace turtle neck with a bra that’s meant to be seen.
SHOP THE LOOK :
⚜ Oversized sexy sweats
Now I love this. Not only is it cozy but it’s getting more and more chic. The fit as if you stole it from your boyfriend but it’s styled with feminine touches like socks with heels, sky high boots, chokers, belts to make it more fitted (if a dress), etc.
MILD: Oversized sweatshirt with leggings or ripped skinny jeans.
WILD: sweatshirt dresses a la cotton citizen with knee or thigh high boots or socks.
SHOP THE LOOK :
⚜ Haute Bondage
Now this one isn’t for the faint of heart, but the fetish look is IN right now, and I am loving it. I’m talking lots of leather, O-Rings, cuffs, chokers, fishnets, mesh, harnesses, lace-up everything, clear PVC – the list goes on.
One of my favourite looks from NYFW was seeing Zana Bayne – one of my favourite leather houses – over or under dresses like here on Jessica Lowndes, & here (black) + here (pvc) on Caroline Vreeland (two of my favourites to follow on insta, btw).
Now this look is SUPER edgy – if you’re looking to play with this look and test the waters, I recommend starting SMALL either a bag like this (less than $25) or Zana Bayne’s signature choker (option #2 above) – it seriously goes with everything & give any outfit an insta-edge!
MILD: thin leather chokers, lace-up thigh highs, boot straps, or one leather cuff
WILD: go with a harness (under or over – I am actually thinking over a black portofino), matching leather cuffs, or an oversized ring choker.
EXXXTRA WILD: An oversized cinched belt (obsessed with this Zana Bayne one & this matching choker omg)
