Trending Fashion News – This season, fashion is all about opulence. Sparkles and sheen, intricate details and deep, rich colors have been the trend as the days get colder and the nights get longer. Warm shades and sumptuous fabrics with fabulous finishes and even faux fur set the stage.
Fashion is taking its cue from the movies, and this winter, the latest remake of the classic novel turned Anna Karenina has been a hit at the cinemas as much for the costumes as the plot. Set in Russia in the nineteenth century and starring the stunning Keira Knightly in the title role, Academy Award nominated designer Jacqueline Durran showcases the romantic styles of the film’s era.
A capsule collection inspired by Durran’s favorite pieces from the set was transformed into a more modern look and were available exclusively at Banana Republic. The line is resplendent with art deco style jewelry, delicate lace embellishments and velvet, and is one of the best looks of the season.
Faux fur is being seen everywhere this year, with the Russian –style hats from the Anna Karenina collection to the fun, funky vests seen everywhere. Besides faux fur, rich fabrics like velvet and brocade are showing up on everything from accent pieces to pants. Sequins are also an easy way to up the glamour, and sparkly tank tops and dresses are perfect for the party season.
One of the season’s hottest trends has been leather or leather-like skinny jeans and jeggings. The term ‘jeggings’ was coined as a combination of leggings and jeans. The bright candy colors that were one of the biggest fashion trends of the summer have been transformed with basic black and muted metallics such as bronze and pewter, and these statement-making pants are one of the keys looks seen everywhere and at every price-point, from low to high-end retailers.
Footwear has taken on a sexy and edgy look, with a lot of embellishment. Studs, spikes and glitter have made their way to shoes and boots, from flats to heels to boots. The equestrian look is still very popular for boots, and slim riding boots with buckles or harness detailing are a perfect choice for the cooler weather, and look fabulous with everything from skirts to skinny jeans.
This fall, the key to looking great combines classic and timeless pieces with a little bit of edge.
