Last week was the most anticipated moment in fashion, New York Fashion Week. The event showcased Fall 2021 collections, which showed upcoming trends that many of us will be looking forward to adding to our carts very soon. Some trends have even repeated themselves this time around. Here are a few of the trends we're loving for the Fall/Winter season.
When it comes to Fall, it’s all about the initial start of layering. During NYFW, we’ve seen some unique layering with printed long sleeves under colored T-shirts and vice versa. Of course, there is also the classic layering fit of a top and coat. This year’s Fall Fashion trends, layering is all about getting playful and combining different textures and prints together to create an art piece of an outfit.
This trend was also seen during Spring 2021, but it is also making its way into Fall. Casual suits are more loose fitting and the material is usually lighter than your average business suit, so these kinds of looks are an easy transition from Spring to Fall. Easily layering these suits with shirts, long sleeves, and sweaters for colder days during the fall season.
Cut Outs / Peekaboo
Time to show a little more skin with cut outs. Many garments have been shown during fashion week with intricate cut out details, or ‘peekaboo’ details, from chest cut outs to arm cut outs. It makes an ordinary shirt, or sweater, into something a little more interesting and adds a touch of playfulness to an outfit.
We’ve seen sweater vests as last year’s fall fashion trend as well, and it’s been growing more and more in popularity for its versatility in layered fits, and also just for it’s simple style. It’s continuing to steadily make its way into this year’s fall fashion trend with just about all the styles and prints we’ve been eyeing for.
Pantone Color ‘Adobe’
According to Pantone, this color is a “warm and sun dried clay”. Brown tones have been an exceptionally raving color palette, so seeing it during NYFW only clarifies that Brown tones are here to stay for the season. It provides an autumn feel in a sense.
This color is mainly associated with loungesets like sweatpants, basic crewnecks, and any basic sweat essential. Prepare to see more of this color on more garments like knits, trousers, and other outgoing staples.
