Fall/Winter trends: go floriental this season or try clashing colors
Saturday 27 August 2011
This fall's prints vary between florals and Asian-inspired designs, while unusual color combinations are set to mix up your wardrobe.
Flower prints also came as part of oriental outfits, as seen at Jil Sander and Mary Katrantzou. Meanwhile, transition your polka-dotted summer pieces into fall like Marc Jacobs did, and stripes - like Commun's - will go well with the continuing color-block trend.
Brands such as Sass & Bide combined seemingly clashing colors like orange and pink or pink and red for fresh-looking outfits, while others including Blumarine went for one bright hue from head to toe.
If you want to stay loyal to fall's more traditional color palette - mustard, wine, olive, and brown - turn to the likes of Miu Miu or Mulberry for inspiration. One of the season's trendiest prints, tartan (as seen at Sonia Rykiel, for instance) goes especially well with these hues.
For some more fresh takes on patterns, try printed transparent blouses under cardigans or just sheer printed maxi dresses (e.g., John Galliano) or opt for printed pants (e.g., Derek Lam).
