“Stop expecting it to look like what you expect it to look like. It’s true of the fall lines, and it’s true of relationships,” Candice Bergen’s character, Cindy Chupack, famously uttered on HBO’s Sex and the City. Fall is a fun time for fashion though, even though those of us who sit at the front rows of Fashion Week have a minimal idea of what to expect before collections hits the catwalk. Fall 2017 promises to be bold, political, and statement making. So, what can we expect to see fashionistas and stylish consumers wearing next season?

Statement Red

Red has long been the power color, and last season on the runways red appeared in the collections of top fashion houses like Oscar de la Renta and Dolce and Gabbana. Red has a history of being worn by powerful women from First Lady Nancy Reagan to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was known to sport red blazers on the campaign trail. If there’s a way for a woman to say I’m here and I will be heard, it’s to make a statement in a red ensemble. Never underestimate a lady in red.

Belted Outerwear

It’s all about belted outerwear this season, whether it be a trench coat or faux fur coat. This season, don’t be afraid to let female consumers accentuate their waist or hips. While the era of those exaggerated hip skirts made popular by Dior is long over (goodbye 1950s), the belt is back to help women accentuate their figures. We at Fashion Reverie are co-signing the big statement belts and are expecting to see plenty of these coats come November. We are talking about the kind of statement belts that look like WWE title belts in some cases, so remember, make sure you are wearing the belt and your belt isn’t wearing you.

Sparkly Boots

When Saint Laurent sent those glitter crystal boots down the runway—the price tag was $10,000 by the way, time for a second mortgage—the boots became the phenomenon of the fashion season. The glitter crystal boots were the boots that no one could stop talking about. And some time after, top bloggers Bryan Boy and Ezra William posted images on their Instagram accounts of themselves in the boots, keeping the conversation going. Sparkly boots also appeared on the runways of Chanel and Oscar de la Renta.

That said; be cautious with this trend. If you rock a glitter boot, keep the rest of your outfit understated, otherwise you will look like a cross between a disco ball and a drag show—unless that’s what you’re going for, which is fine!

Florals for Fall

No fashion industry professional has been able to forget Miranda Priestly’s famously snarky response from The Devil Wears Prada …” Florals for spring? Groundbreaking.” What about florals for fall though? Florals appeared in the fall winter collections of designers including Delpozo, Coach, and Ralph Lauren. Some might be nervous about rocking florals in autumn temperatures; however, in a sea of neutral fall jackets, spice up your wardrobe with some prints and color. You will lauded and thanked for going beyond fall/winter urban warrior black.

Pretty in Plaid

It’s easy to be pretty in pink, but now it’s time to be pretty in plaid. Plaid ruled the runways last season in the collections of Bottega Veneta, Tory Burch, and Prada. Plaid was all the rage in the 90s, and with 90s nostalgia dominating fashion right now, it’s only fitting that plaid has made its return as a preferred pattern. Thanks to iconic pieces like the Chanel tweed jacket and anything with Burberry check, plaid has never gone out of style, but now it’s any and everywhere.
