This season, we’ve found ourselves inundated with a huge score of trends to navigate. With the range larger than ever, it can be overwhelming trying to decided what to incorporate into your fall wardrobe. In our Fall Trend Report, we break down the top styles on a weekly basis and share just how to accomplish it (without breaking the bank).
If you told us this time last year that we should consider making dresses from the curtains in our grandmother’s house, we’d probably suggest you take some time off and start thinking normally. Well, that was until fall fashion week occurred where we spotted plenty of designers tapping their own matriachs as key influences. Transported to the attics of yesteryear, this fall trend reminds us of our childhood dressing up boxes where we would playfully layer and pile on costumes from generations past.
We especially refer to the 1940s and 1960s, with luxurious upholstery-like fabrics, Peter Pan collars and demure dress shapes washed the runway clean of former, racier silhouettes. Both masculine suiting separates and super-feminine frocks are relevant for the trend. In terms of prints, look to windowpane plaid and ditsy florals for the best interpretation of this look. Read on for a dose of inspiration and just how you can build this major fall trend yourself.
