Top 5 fall 2017 trends

fall 2017 trends fashion style runways street

The fall 2017 season is here! Well, not technically, according to the weather, and the calendar, but in the retail world it is in full swing! This means when we go to the store, instead of being greeted by beach attire, we are being greeted by faux fur, wool coats, and a whole lot of velvet!

The autumn 2017 season is bringing us a lot of fall 2017 trends which have made it from the runways to the streets. The fall 2017 trends from the runways were almost on track with what buyers decided they wanted to wear on the streets.

There are so many fall 2017 trends to sort through, I decided to narrow it down for you, and chat about the five most important trends of the season. At the end of this post, I recap all of the important trends of the season in long sentence. (hopefully none of my former English teachers or professors are reading this. haha)

Without further ado, the top 5 fall 2017 trends to hit the streets from the runways are:

Fall 2017 Trends: Shades of Red

Shades of red dominated the runways for the fall 2017 season. This was arguably the most recognizable trend throughout fashion week. So, it is no surprise that red is already proving to be the most important of all the fall 2017 color trends. While shades of pink, yellow, purple, green, black, and white are part of the fall 2017 color wheel, red is the must-have color of the season. You can rock red on clothing, shoes, hats, handbags, lipstick, or nail polish. It does not matter how do you do red, just be sure you are doing red.

Fall 2017 Trends: Hobos and Satchels

Designers have gone gaga for the hobo, and the classic satchel this season. While the satchel has been an important trend in handbags over the past few years, the hobo bag has been dormant. We have seen the rise of the hobo quietly in the background lately, but it has not been until fall 2017 that this large, soft handbag style can claim IT bag status.

As for scale, handbags are getting bigger. You can hang onto your mini bags from the past few seasons to use for convenience, but when it comes to carrying the IT bag of the season, bigger is better. Look for large, soft hobos,  as well as medium to large satchels or totes this fall season.

Fall 2017 Trends: Soft Fabrics

The soft fabric trend of fall 2016 has returned for more in the fall 2017 season. Look for soft velvet, lace, satin; and anything that can flow. The softer, the better!

Fall 2017 Trends: The Return of the Power Suit

Now, when you think of the “Power Suit” an image of a 1980s pantsuit perfect for working on Wall Street may come to mind. Well, this is a new millennium, and the “Power Suit” is anything but Wall Street. Suiting for fall 2017 may take on many forms. We are seeing pajama style suits, leisure suits, structured suits, and unstructured suits. The idea is to have the jacket and pants match; by match I mean made from the same exact fabric. A blue print blazer paired with solid blue pants will not do; both pieces need to be made from the same fabric. Get ready for a season of matchy-matchy! (only in suiting, don’t match your bag and shoes-still not cool)

Fall 2017 Trends: Statement Jackets and Coats

The days of the classic black coat are loooooooong gone. Seriously, who owns a basic black coat anymore? Fall 2017, is all about the statement coat. You can wear a potato sack underneath if you want to; no-one will care. It’s all about the coat, or jacket.

For fall 2017, look for faux fur, multi-colored coats/jackets, 1970s chevrons, texture, brocade, embroidery; the works! If your coat blends into the crowd, it isn’t a statement coat. Look for the loudest jacket or coat on the rack and buy it. The crazier the better! You need to sparkle and shine this season in your outerwear.

Of course, when it comes to the fall 2017 fashion trends which have hit the streets from the runways, there are always more then five. In addition to these top five trends, look for Metallic touches and fabrics, the rise of silver over rose gold, 1990s influences, 1970s influences, brocade, embroidery, all-black, all-white, track pants worn with pumps, mules/slides, and luxurious combat boots.
