Fall is our favorite fashion season! Fall requires layers which means there are so many styles to choose from that everyone will find something for themelves. This season, meaning fall/winter 2016 not only abounds with leather, fur, lace and velvet but also the following statement-making styles.
Leopard Print Coat
From Anna Sui to Givenchy, designers want to take us to a trip to the wild side. The fiercest trend of the Fashion Week has become a favourite outerwear for fall and winter 2016. This season the leopard print coat comes in a variety of forms – as a pea coat adorned with faux fur collar, a trench coat and a full length plush coat. Choose the one that suits you best.
Shine bright like a diamond this fall! With golden coats at Dolce & Gabbana, silver skirts at Fendi and head-to-toe metallic ensembles at Tory Burch, we can say for sure that the season’s best looks are dripped with shine. These graceful and glamorous ensembles are not only evening-appropriate. They also came in forms of comfortable wear you can wear from day to night.

Ornate, dressy, sophisticate. Brocade is perfect for dressing up, but on more casual pieces it is chic and unexpected. And so it was at the New York Fashion Week. Mary Katrantzou and Peter Pilotto presented many beautiful examples of how to wear brocade florals in the daytime.
There is another daring trend we will need to pull off this season: underwear as outerwear. This trend has made its mark on the Spring catwalks with slip dresses and has been extended to this Fall/Winter in a bit more refined way. Find inspiration at Narciso Rodriguez, Alberta Ferretti and Vera Wang who dressed models in sexy silk bralettes and pajama-inspired satin ensembles.

Over the knee boots
OTK boots score another season on the runway but will be this big on the streets? They come in a variety of styles: velvet at Anna Sui, with square heels at Altuzarra, adorned with frills at Fendi and extremely long at Balmain. In each case the statement-making boot is not here to steal the show, it is just a background for fall outfits. Remember to follow this rule.
