Fashion Alert! Fall Fashion is Here!
Men & Women’s Fashion Trends for fall 2014’, Your guide to Falling Back into Fashion.
As the bohemian-gypsy-aztec trend took over the Spring & Summer a lot of designers are keeping the “feel” of the fashion trend but changing it up drastically as well. Last year grey hit the runways hard, with some of the most refreshing prints and fabrics available. This year as we head into fall black & grey are trumping the runways, streets and everywhere else. But this year designers have added a bold element. The textures and finishes on this falls fabrics are absolutely impeccable. Smooth, sleek and velvet finishes paired with classic, plaid, striped or designed fabrics add the eye-catching look to your fall wardrobe.
The hot colors for this fall are vibrant, eye-catching, bold and beautiful. Gorgeous shades of blue are the primary fall fashion color. The next colors to trump the runways are in the purples, reds and greens. For the purple family deep purple, lavender and plum are really hot. In the red family we will see a lot of maroon/wine and classic red. One color family that can really enhance your wardrobe is browns. Dark brown will be sparse but caramel brown, tan and khaki are very popular, especially when it comes to shoes and accessories. You’ll see the greens such as emerald, dark and deep sea green and lastly, gold and yellow are making a sneak peak.
Top designers have taken menswear to a whole new level with all the accessories geared towards them. Menswear is sheik and sexy with overall black and or grey and accented with this Falls bold and vivid colors. Today, I think men may have more accessories than women! From phone covers and tablets to belts, scarves, hats, bags, shoes and jewelry, men have an endless selection of accessories to pair with their outfits. I would like to thank the designers for making our men so fashionably sheik and hot!
Women have it all this year. With such a wide variety of accessories to add or subtract from your wardrobe I am seeing a huge split. I am seeing women accessorized head to toe in all the falls brilliant colors or I am seeing women confidently strutting down the street in a traditional sheik classic look layered in black and or grey with unique & fun splashes of color. Its red lips or nude lips. Colorful nails with effects or simply nice and nude. Curled wild hair or slick and sleek. (With the Keratin Treatment trend a lot of straight and sleek hair is on the move.) Either way this fall Fashion Outlook is to drool over. On a more relaxed note, more casual and sporty attire is seen; leggings paired with flannels & fur-hooded coats or sleek jeans with sportswear layered tops, zip-ups and sports shoes. No matter what the look, this fall is smoking hot!
