Fall 2019 Fashion Forecast

 


Labor Day marks the unofficial end of summer as pools close and beach lovers make that one last trip to their favorite spot. We start looking ahead to our Fall wardrobes and this Fall there are tons of fashion trends to choose from. With so many looks on the fashion runways, there is something for everyone. 
Even better, what was old is new again! Because many of the trends are a return to past styles from the 70s, 80s and 90s, you may be able to find pieces in your closet or on the cheap at a local thrift or vintage store. You really can’t lose!

First, Fall 2019 is throwing it back to the 70s with lots of metallic colors and lame fabric. Look to style inspiration from Studio 54,
as well as a return to the classic 70s girl look of blouses and a-line skirts. The blouses are updated with patterns and high necks as well as romantic lace while skirts are here in an always stylish leather (or vegan leather). Don't forget your cape to complete your 70s look.

Moving forward a decade, the 80s are back with a romantic ode to the grunge look. Dark florals are accompanied by leather moto jackets and combat boots a la grunge rock queen Courtney Love.

Of course, a return to fashion from years past would not be complete without updated styles from the power decade, the 90s. Power suits with strong shoulders are back in bright neons as well as plaids. Feathers have also made a return, replacing faux fur as the must have staple in your Fall closet.

Also, look for leopard print everywhere! Animal prints of all kinds took over the runways for Fall 2018 but for 2019, leopard has emerged as the big cat supreme. Look for it on tops, pants, shoes, dresses, skirts as well as outwear - leopard print has become the newest neutral.
