The Fall 2018 Fashion Week Shortlist
Posted on 19 September 2018
Goodbye summer. Hello Fall! Now that it's officially autumn and the excitement of Fashion Week 2018 is behind us, it's time to whip our closets into shape just in time for the inevitable drop in temperatures. If you're wondering how to decode all your favorite runway designs into slightly more achievable ready-to-wear styles, today on Zeena Uncovered, we're taking a closer look at the latest fashions from New York, Paris, Milan and London to bring you the low-down on which trends you should be watching (and which ones to avoid).
Fall 2018 Trends to Watch:
This season, playful patterns, bold colors, a bit of clever layering and comfort reign supreme...BUT if you're not ready to dive headfirst into these Fall 2018 trends, play it safe by mixing up your OOTD style with our newest arrivals of tops, wraps and a few key accessories to pull it all together.
Menswear Prints - Saville Row herringbone, pinstripes, plaid, and houndstooth made their way onto nearly everyone's IT-List, including Fendi and Derek Lam.
Red All Over - Red is one hot color trend to watch out for! Wearing head-to-toe crimson will guarantee you'll stop traffic, but that's no reason to go overboard. If you love red, but want to take things slow, ease into this trend with accessories, starting with a sizzling InstaHijab or a bold nail color.
Animal Instincts - There's more to the jungle than just cheetahs! This season, designers are taking a walk on the wild side by delving into other territories like tiger stripes, zebra, giraffe, snow leopards, and snake prints. (If you think of animal spots as polka dots, this one doesn't seem too hard to handle, right?)
Little House on the 1980s Prairie - If you haven't had your fill yet of ultra-feminine ruffles from over the summer, this season, designers are kickin' things up a notch by introducing even more American cowgirl details. Ruffles, frills, embroidery and bell sleeves were spotted at Anna Sui, along with Barbie eyes and exotic jewelry paired with Victorian-style collars and folklore prints. Prairie glam will soon be everywhere, so keep your eyes peeled! Step into this trend with a printed tunic or a simple top with charming details and pile on the accessories. May we suggest the Scallop Bell Dress in Scarlet?
Prints on Prints -- Mixing prints is always a safe bet when you want to show the best your closet has to offer...all at once! Good thing designers like Chanel and Temperley of London backed our trend of choice with a refreshing medley of sparkling sequins, stripes, even more embroidery and florals.
