I've been a huge fan of pre-fall season runway shows. Why? Because I love fall/winter season in more casual and wearable way. I love layering, fall colors, coats, jackets, and so on; but not as "heavy" as the fall runway. Plus, usually pre-fall shows could be our source for daily outfit. Surely, the recent Pre-Fall 2012 Shows have fulfilled all of these expectation. I've been checking out almost all of pre-fall 2012 shows, and finally summarize some of the trends which caught my attention. These are the trends:
1) BOYISH SHORTS
From left to right: Alexander Wang, Prabal Gurung, Albino, Tibi
Try to wear a not-so-mini boyish shorts with a boyish shirt too, pattern jacket or animal prints top. Add a brogues shoes, loafer, or black boots to rock the look.
2) Color Combination: GREEN & BLUE
From left to right: Louis Vuitton, J.W. Anderson, Kenzo, Preen.
Combine navy or electric blue with anything with emerald green. For example, a navy blue sweater with green pants, or wear green sweater underneath a blue turtleneck tank, etc.
3) FALL COLORBLOCK
From left to right: Clements Ribeiro, Emilio Pucci, Opening Ceremony, Pringle of Scotland.
The color palettes are navy blue, emerald green (light or dark), burgundy red, warm cobalt blue, mustard yellow, plum purple, and brown.
4) GRAPHIC SWEATER
From left to right: Diesel Black Gold, Derek Lam, Francesco Scognamiglio, 3.1 Phillip Lim.
Wear a shirt underneath the sweater, add a leather pants/white pants or pencil midi skirt/leather skirt for a more feminine look. Basically, you can wear sweater with anything!
5) Pattern Pants + Top Layerings
From left to right: Anne Valérie Hash, Jonathan Saunders, Matthew Williamson, Derek Lam, Pringle of Scotland.
Fall season is about layering, and it will be more fun to wear pattern pants! Wear your pattern pants with layering: a shirt with a jacket/coat. Or you can experiment the layering with more clothes, as seen in Jonathan Saunders & Pringle of Scotland.
There will be more trends to post! Wait patiently :)
