SHEERS – As seen @ Valentino
If shimmer is not your thing, that’s not a problem. This fall, designers decided to bring risqué back. Sheer fabrics with amazing detail on them define autumn trends. Long, translucent gowns with butterflies, flowers, or other details dramatize the effect and are no less eye-catching than a blinged out outfit. These pieces are so sensational that hair and makeup mustn’t be overdone, but rather kept simple and more on the natural side.

BLOOD RED – As seen @ Dolce & Gabbana
Have you heard that red is the new black? Instead of the typical autumn brown, red has been gracing the runway. The bold color is a safe path to show one’s confidence and inner strength.

ART PIECE – As seen @ Burberry
After reveling in such a picturesque summer with plenty of trend-setting art pieces and elements of graphic designs, this fall’s palette cannot revert to plain pastels. Setting the bar this season is of modern, abstract art and surrealism. Human faces, flowers, insects colors punctuate the prints that are striking the runway at the pre-fall shows.

60’S – As seen @ DSquared2
Time traveling back into the past and brining back some of those styles into the present – that’s how our designers came up with reviving the sixties. Modern, straight silhouettes mixed with graphic prints and colors from the sixties are really making their return – and this time it’s big! Flashy circles, grids, and zigzags really brighten spirits during the gray, fall season.
