The 8 Most Fetching Fall Fashion Trends
Published on September 09, 2015
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?
Say hello to perhaps the biggest trend of the season: boho. Though the sumptuous runway looks were less flower crowns and bellbottoms and more Earth tones, embellished tops and plaids, Otis Barkington, one hip Boston Terrier, still exudes the overall energy of fall’s groovy feel. Subtle touches of fringe or an embroidered jacket will keep you on trend— without the feeling of being in costume.
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.
Benson, a 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 dressing.
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 entirely optional.
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 Poodle Logan, 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.
