The fall 2017 collections are pouring onto store shelves, and online shops. Despite these fabulous fashions which made it from the runways to the streets for the fall 2017 season, the weather outside is still screaming summer!
If you are like me, you want to wear the newest fashion trends from the runways as soon as they become available. Unfortunately, many fall 2017 trends are too warm to wear in this eighty degree summer heat. That is where pre-fall comes in. It is the ultimate way to wear the new fall trends during the summer months. Pre-fall styles help us stay ahead of the fashion curve, while remaining comfortable in the current season. So to help us stay on trend for fall, and cool for summer, here is my pre-fall 2017 trend report featuring the hottest fall trends which can be worn now.
Pre-Fall 2017 trend report with styles you can wear now
Clean denim: No more tears and distressing for fall! If you already own a ton of jeans with distressed knees and the like, it is OK. You can continue to wear them, just don’t buy them! Torn denim is changing it’s tune for fall 2017. Look for complete knees and rear’s; only look for distressed hemlines, that is where distressing is at for fall 2017.
Slides and mules: Oh this beloved trend from spring is too hot to touch for fall! Slides and mules are all the rage this fall 2017 season; and you can wear them now! Since slides and mules have an open back, they allow air flow, which means you can wear them in the hot summer weather. They can be worn now and well into the fall season. Only rain or snow will make you store your slides for better weather! If you don’t already own a clean and classic black pair, now is the time to invest in a pair. If you already own black slides, look for on trend metallic or embroidered mules to round out your fall collection. You will look fabulous!
Pink: This is the color that will not go away! Keep wearing vivid pinks and pale pink tones. Your summer pinks will carry you through the fall season; and they will be perfect for the weather! Love that!
Embellished handbags: Since handbags transcend weather, a fall 2017 embellished handbag is the perfect fall statement piece to carry you from summer into fall. Look for a fun, fabulous handbag with all the embellishments you love for fall. You can carry it everyday starting today, and throughout the fall season!
Leopard Print: Meow! Groundbreaking right? Who would have thunk, leopard print for fall?! ha! Pull out your animal prints from storage and start rocking them now. You can slide into leopard print mules, or use a lightweight scarf to turn a summer ensemble into a eye-catching fall look.
Textured, feminine fabrications: Satins, velvets, and lace fabrics are still all the rage for fall. Your spring and summer pieces in these soft fabrics are perfect to wear now through the fall season. Look for slip dresses you can wear now, and then wear one over a body-conscious turtleneck in the cooler weather. They are the ultimate summer to fall transition piece.
Also, the fall 2017 trends will include tiered sleeves, black/white combos, pops of red, asymmetrical lines, shades of grey, toned down ruffles, cropped pants, booties, over the knee boots, shades of blue, shoulder bags, top handle satchels, and more!
