Fall Dressing

It's that time of year again! Here I take a look back at some of the trends of the fall 2013 collections.

 Proenza Schouler, Alexander Wang, Chanel, Balenciaga, Celine
There was a huge focus on minimal colours this season. Black, white and grey were all over the runways. Having a wardrobe full of these colours would make for easy outfit-planning. Also in the monochrome trend were other neutral colours like navy and cream.
 Bottega Veneta, Valentino, Rochas, Dolce & Gabbana, Christian Dior
Fall took Dior's New Look of the 1950's and gave it a modern twist. Luxurious fabrics formed A-line dresses and skirts. Trés chic.
 Prada, Marni, Fendi, Marc Jacobs, Hermès
Whether in the form of a chubby jacket, cuffs or a stole, fur featured in many of the collections. Most of the fur came in shades of brown, but the birds-of-paradise at Fendi were decked out in a rainbow of colours. Regardless of colour, a  fur coat is definitely an investment for fall dressing.
Jil Sander, Saint Laurent, Louis Vuitton, Max Mara, Christopher Kane
Coats came in a variety of shapes, colours and textures for fall. The oversized silhouette, however, was a stand-out. A great way to add a masculine aspect to any outfit.
