What I have learned over a lifetime of fashion reporting is that trends change frequently, but some pieces will remain forever. These timeless pieces are the foundation of Fall 2021 fashion trends. They were presented mostly at virtual collections. Shopaholics love the feeling of walking into their favorite stores and seeing a new collection.
Prada’s patterned bodysuit, Alexander McQueen’s flowering biker jacket and Versace’s tiny minis have all been embraced by the world. Vogue’s global first spread also shows that fall’s most popular pieces, such as Prada’s patterned piece, Versace’s adorable minis, and Alexander McQueen’s patterned bodysuit are very much in fashion. Your new Wales Bonner knit dress or Celine shearling jacket will be equally as stylish in Paris, Shanghai, and New York. Is that not enough reason to get a new wardrobe? !
Wear a sweater that makes you smile
Although classic neutral knits are important, Raf Simons and Miu Miu have proven that brighter colors make a sweater more appealing. Victor Glemaud is a master knitwear designer who has added a retro collar and clever color-blocking to make winter days brighter.
Bloom Even After Dark
Flowers aren’t only for spring. Marni and Dries van Noten’s moody blooms are perfect for an autumn day with their crimson hues playing off the leaves. This arrangement is like any other good floral arrangement. It can be complemented by a little chaos: Pair this Dolce & Gabbana bralette with groovy Adam Lippes trousers.
Pantsuits? As If!
Clueless heroine Cher Horovitz would fit right in our Fall Fashion Trend Report. Plaid miniskirts like Cher’s yellow number are appearing in dozens upon dozens of collections. They are now available in stores as the back-to school frenzy increases. Charles Jeffrey Loverboy, Self-Portrait, and Alessandra rich give the look a punky twist. Plaid is pretty in Alessandra Rich.
Reskin Your Loungewear
Sweatpants will be out of fashion after 2020. Opt for a matching set of stretchy pants from Rodarte or Prada. Let your curves and these optic prints do the talking.
Give your leather jacket some life
A great leather jacket is the most important item in a closet. The most iconic styles of this season have more style than your typical moto jacket. Bottega Veneta’s long-legged bomber, Simone Rocha’s huge pouf and a sleek Supriya Lele design are just a few examples. You can be crazy with it!
Channel Your Inner Dua
Hot Girl Summer is turning into Pop Star Fall and Dua Lipa is the best at it. Her 90s-tinted looks conjure a sophisticated, sexy mood. Stella McCartney, Victoria Beckham, and others are ready to dress her in bright micro-minis or dresses.
Show Your Stripes
Chloe Balmain, Wales Bonner and Balmain give rugby stripes a sensual, new look. For purists, Monse’s skirt can be worn with a white button-up. For those who want to add some va-va voom, a Kenzo knit might work. More directions are better.
You can supersize your jacket
The weather has changed due to climate change. Celine and Loewe offer extra-large jackets that make it easy to be prepared for any weather. Even better? The sleeves are also extra large so your sweater can fit in the sleeves
Be Unique with It
The days of total look dressing are gone. Retro graphics, patchwork, collage, and upcycled patches are all back in fashion. They look best worn together. Pair that Louis Vuitton with the Chopova Lowena. Experimentation is the best style for these times.
