Trend Watch: Beyond Basic Moto Jackets
Few articles of clothing have moved beyond the realm of trends to become a style staple. One of these chosen few is the moto jacket. However, trends can still exist within style staples and this season, thanks in large part to street style giants like Taylor Tomasi Hill, the classic moto jacket has gotten a bold new upgrade. Bright hues, technicolor prints, experimental volume, and scrolling embroidery make this season’s jackets the perfect statement pieces that will last from winter well into spring.

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: Tough Tweed
Your grandmother’s favorite fabric has gotten a tough update for fall. This season, we saw tweed in motorcycle-esque jackets, body hugging dresses, leather trimmed tops, and bold box-pleat skirts.

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: Peplums
What can we say about peplums? This magical little piece of fabric, when added in just the right place, creates curves where there previously were none, giving even the most beanpole figures the illusion of an hourglass. No wonder this has become such a popular trend.

Trend Watch: Pretty in Pink
Spring seems to have come early this year, with pretty petal pinks as one of the dominant colors. But this typically ultra feminine color has been given a tougher twist for fall with moto-style jackets and graphic digital prints.

Trend Watch: Drop Waist Dresses
Here at Wiseling, we love a good vintage-inspired trend and this one exceeds all of our standards. Perhaps in anticipation of the release of The Great Gatsby next summer, 1920s style drop waist dresses were seen on spring runways at Etro, Chloe, and Victoria Beckham (to name a few). But you don’t have to wait until March to step out in these flapper-chic shifts; these are available in time for your next holiday party.

Trend Watch: Sleek Silver
Shimmering golds and bronzes have been a huge trend this fall, but as temperatures dip below freezing and winter starts to set in, we find ourselves craving a cooler metal. Silver has become the “it” metal of the season, seen in the form of accessories at Derek Lam, shoes at Yves Saint Laurent, and all over at Chanel and Roberto Cavalli. Combine silver with white at your next holiday party for a look that is festive and winter-y, but not cliche, or wear with burgundy to brighten an otherwise dark ensemble.

Trend Watch: Art Deco Jewels
With Thanksgiving come and gone, the holiday season has officially begun, and with it, all of those formal parties. One of the best ways to bring new life to the standard party dress is with some seriously dramatic jewelry. Luckily for us, designers this season have gone above and beyond the holiday standard of pave everything, looking toward Old Hollywood glamour for inspiration.
