Trend Watch: Geometric Prints
The holidays are over, and we can’t help but to look ahead to spring and warm weather trends. But there are still a few months before everything thaws. Luckily, this fall/winter trend will still be relevant as the days grow longer and the snow melts. Geometric prints were seen on a multitude of runways for fall, most notably at Basso & Brooke where the bold mix of geometric shapes completely sold us on this trend.

Trend Watch: Oversize Coats
This season, bigger is better, with larger-than-life clutches, ruffles, and prints dominating the runways and the streets. Perhaps the most noticeable and timely of these big bold trends is the oversize coat. Seen at Acne, Chloe, Jil Sander, Balenciaga, and many more, these warm winter staples came in a range of colors, textures, and prints. Better yet, just think of all of the layers you’ll be able to fit under them when the temperature dips.

Trend Watch: Cap Toe Shoes
Vintage inspired shoe trends can be a little iffy (Marc Jacob’s pilgrim shoes?), but these are as chic as they were the day Coco Chanel came up with them in 1957. We are talking, of course, about cap toe shoes. We saw them this spring and were overjoyed to see designers continue to embrace the mixed material footwear for fall.

Trend Watch: Tall Black Boots
When it comes to boots, this fall is a season of extremes. In stark contrast to the ankle boot trend, we are seeing oodles of sky high tall black boots. To-the-knee and over-the-knee boots were seen at Alexander Wang, Proenza Schouler, Nina Ricci, and Givenchy. Sleek, sophisticated, and in that perfect shade of multipurpose black, these boots are definitely worth the investment.

Trend Watch: Metallics
Perhaps inspired by the Olympics, designers had their eyes on the gold (and silver and bronze, for that matter) when creating their fall collections. Shiny metallic pieces graced the runways at the likes of Ralph Lauren, Rag & Bone, and Dolce & Gabbana, to name a few. Not to mention the pantsuit at Marni that redefined “gilding the lily”. The trick to pulling off this trend is to buy your metallic treasures in luxe fabrics and tailored silhouettes to avoid looking cheap. Play dress-up in a mixed metallic brocade dress or, do as Anne-Catherine Frey did at Paris Fashion Week, and pair a golden skirt with a casual tee and booties. Either way, you’re sure to get a gold star.

Trend Watch: Oversized Clutches
Oversized clutches were seen under the arms of many a trendsetter and tastemaker this past fashion week. This sophisticated trend is perfect for carrying magazines, your iPad and any other necessities formerly reserved only for briefcases, boho bags, and backpacks. We love the oversized clutch as the ideal piece that can take you from carryall during the day to bold statement at night.
