As designers, models, editors and other style makers head to New York Fashion Week to view the spring/summer 2016 runway shows, we’re setting our sartorial sights on the season at hand: fall 2015.
Despite our Insta-stalking, we didn’t spot any canine cuties sporting this season’s surprisingly flattering culottes or the glam goth look that has us, quite literally, shaking in our boots. But, we did track down dogs rocking nine of the most wearable looks you’ll want to incorporate into your fall wardrobe. And, not to boast, but the models in New York don’t hold a candle to the ones we rounded up for this gallery of top trends.
Hopeless romantics will be
head-over-pointy-toed-heels for the prettiest trend of the season. Designers
embraced granny glamour, going not just a little retro, but throwing it all the
way back to the 19th century. Pull it off by mixing polished, ladylike pieces (think high collars, ruffles and
lace) with leather accessories that add just the right amount of edge to this
otherwise buttoned-up look. Trotter, an impossibly fab French Bulldog and Internet sensation, would have fit right in walking the fall 2015 runway for Chanel, non?
If you long for the simpler
days of school-uniform dressing, this is the trend for you. Throw on a classic button-down,
well-tailored wool skirt and the requisite black-framed glasses, and you’re out the door. Go ahead, even the
cool kids — like Digby and Alo Van Winkle — are embracing their inner nerds.
Labrador Retriever from Australia, gives life to “all black
everything.” As the runways' streamlined knits prove, a sleek, monochromatic look is far from boring. Combining form with
function, the pared-down silhouettes of this season’s sweater dresses and sheaths,
accented with a single bold accessory (much like Benson’s
nametag), make us want to adopt this modern, no-frills approach to fall
Polar-vortex fashion prep
never looked so pretty. A fisherman’s sweater, like the one Geordi La Corgi is
rocking, and quilted puffer jackets and vests — the bigger, the better — take the chill out of autumn evenings.
Cuddling by the fire with your favorite Corgi or other four-legged friend is recommended, but
Denim on Denim
What’s the only thing
better than finding that perfect pair of jeans? Finding the perfect denim shirt
to top ‘em off. Often referred to as the “Canadian tuxedo,” this once-shunned
combo has been a staple of celebrities and street-style stars for more than a year. To refresh your look for fall and appear as flawless as Toy PoodleLogan, break up with your skinnies in favor of a more
relaxed, frayed and distressed boyfriend cut.
About Your Neck
Looking at the necks of
some of the most sartorially savvy street stars, scarves went on a serious diet
over the summer; in fact, we can’t remember a time they looked so skinny! Also making an appearance on “it girl” fashion
bloggers are, believe it or not, traditional bandanas. No longer reserved for cowboys, these quirky
and affordable squares, in red, black, navy and white, will lasso in instant
fashion cred. Funny enough, Bleecker
and other bandana-wearing pups
have predicted this trend for years. Looks like we humans finally realized they
were on to something.
Stoles, gloves, vests,
coats, hats, hoods... those in the fashion know are going faux this season. In bold, bright colors and
oh-so-soft materials, the faux of fall 2015 has come a long way from its
synthetic, matted-down beginnings. Just look at Remix —
could he look any cuter in his faux topper? And as for the rest of this Miniature Schnauzer’s fur? It’s real... and it’s fabulous.
