Best Fall 2016 Trends - The Luxe Lookbook.pngThe end of summer is quickly approaching, and before we know it the Fall weather will be here again. Personally, I’m not ready. I’m never ready. Usually, there’s a refusal, digging in my heels, spending each possible moment at the beach to squeeze in every last ray of summer sun.

But this year? I’m going to plan for it! It’s going to happen. So I’m covering the fashion trends seen at Fall Fashion Week to put us in the mood for a little Autumn style shopping….

9. The Choker Come-Back

We’ve been seeing them on celebs, and they were all over the Fall 2016 RTW runway. Chokers are definitely the it-accessory for Fall 2016, and there are a ton of options from the ultra-feminine black lace seen on Adam Selman’s runway to the double striped sporty choker seen on Versace’s catwalk.

8. The Velvet Touch

It’s not just a fabric used on your grandmother’s couch anymore. Like many of the vintage trends, designers have brought back the velvet crush. Some like Valentino took a more traditional approach while Lorenzo Serafini went glam rock and Roland Mouret went high tech.

7. Checks and Plaid

Plaid and check patterns were all over the catwalks this season. I loved how some of them – especially Rachel Zoe – mixed the patterns so effectively. Plaid has been in for a while, but it’s definitely hot this season.

6. Navy Overcoat

We just can’t seem to get enough of the nautical vibe, and the Fall 2016 RTW runways proved the trend was certainly not over. Along with the overall maritime motif, we saw quite a few Navy style overcoats with stripes, piping details, toggles, and even shearling. LOVE this trend.

5. Second Skin Sock Boots

We fashionistas can’t get enough of our boots. OTK’s, ankle boots, you name it. This season, the big trend is second skin boots. These work best with flowy midis or mini skirts that will show the boots off. Which means a few wardrobe adjustments for when the cold weather hits! Or, you can try the same trend with the ankle boot version I linked below and a cropped or cigarette pant.

4. Thin Scarves and Neck Ties

I love this trend, because it visually elongates your silhouette and makes you magically look a little thinner. And who doesn’t appreciate that?

3. Shades of Pink

Pink is back! I saw all different shades of pink all over the runways this season. And several designers had a little sub-trend of the dusty pink and yellow. So if you really want to be on trend, incorporate a little yellow with your pink.

2. Bomber Jackets

OK loves, a little jacket love here. There were a ton of jacket and outerwear options this season. Bomber jackets as well as lettermen and officer jackets were huge. Bombers seemed to be the biggest trend, and they are being worn by all the celebs right now – TSwift, Kendall Jenner, and pretty much the entire model posse.

1. Rugged Boots

Another 90’s grunge trend making its glorious resurgence. Only this time, we have more options than 8-10 versions of Doc Martens. The rugged boots were a great trend I saw on the runway, juxtaposing all the pretty dainty pumps (which I also want), and these are going to go great with your bombers. If you go for a pink bodysuit, boyfriend jeans, rugged boots, and a bomber, you pretty much have the Kendall Jenner off-duty look down.
