Palette Trends (Fall Edition)

Tuesday, October 8, 2013


There is something casually alluring about plaid.  Although tartan patterns may initially come off as prudish, this print has made a very edgy comeback.  Pairing plaid with different patterns gives this schoolgirl look more bite!

Street Style: grungy plaid vs. feminine plaid

Military Inspired 

This trend never seems to go out of style. I love the rugged, yet chic impression that military inspired clothing gives.  Deep neutral colors are my favorite, so there is no question that this is one of my go-to looks.

Street Style: rugged vs. feminine


There are few who find a classic piece like this distasteful.  Fur had a major presence on the runways this fall.  Several collections, including those by Sacai, Peter Som, and Band of Outsiders incorporated fur into their traditional looks.

Street Style: An instant richness and texture is added with fur

Graphic Sweatshirts

The current fascination with sweatshirts has been prompted by Givenchy's Fall 2013 collection.  Rugged, oversized sweaters were paired with romantic skirts and dresses; and as boyish as the sweaters seem, this collection put an accent on feminine.
Runway: The show emphasized floral, peplum, and sheer skirts.

Street Style: an achievable spin on Givenchy's noteworthy Bambi sweatshirt
