We’re always on the lookout for influencers with a unique perspective. And, we’ve found just that in blogger Jorge Gallegos from iammanchic.com who will now talk about his favorite fashion trends from Fall season fashion week.
Over To Jorge
Whether I like it or not, summer’s over. Farewell day trips to the beach, afternoons in swim trunks, soirees drinking rose and hello cozy nights.
Fall is the season to stock in autumn’s wardrobe essentials such as corduroy pants and Chelsea boots or anything that will help you achieve that stylish layered look New Yorkers have perfected.
I saw a lot of recurring themes on the runway, from roll necks to silk shirts – but I will not be embracing those, mainly because I look horrible in a turtleneck. However, here are three trends you need to know to make sure you look hot, even when the weather starts getting chilly.
Loom Black & Yellow Puffer Jacket, £89
Moncler Gamme Bleu Navy Down Rib Knit Collar Jacket, £1210
Balmain Quilted Panel Track Pants, £850
Get ready to see quilted jackets, bombers, and even blazers everywhere this fall. Established brands like Ermenegildo Zegna and Dries Van Noten opted for sending down models in full quilted looks that seemed comfy yet dapper. Topman embraced this trend in bright colors, even though not your typical color palette for the season, it did inject the runway with some sass. My advice, compliment your office attire with a quilted piece, to bring it down to a casual level. That way you can be ready for Happy Hour after work.
Christopher Shannon Zippo Intarsia Jumper, £200
Neil Barrett Grey Modernist Crewneck Sweater, £335
Words on words, graphics on graphics… This trend is all about showing up some flair on your knits. Because it was evident the graphic t-shirt trend will move onto them for the colder days. Valentino showed pieces printed with positive messages about beauty, while Raf Simons and Dolce & Gabbana toyed with colorful illustrations. No rules for this trend paired them with your favorite sweats or jeans, wear them underneath a coat or by themselves, just keep it simple. Remember, in fashion, less is more.
Vivienne Westwood Striped Bomber Jacket, £1835
Folk Men’s Raglan Sweatshirt, £105
Pt05 Classic Chino Trousers, £163
Whoever said Orange is the new black was right. From Givenchy to Prada, designers are embracing this bright hue for Fall 2017. I saw incredible coats walking down the runway, however, ease into this trend. Use it as an accent color to bring an unexpected twist to your dark suit or classic knit. Unless you are going to the whole prison look, then, by all means, go all out.
