We’ve already taken a look at Fall 2008 footwear trends and it’s high time we checked main outerwear tendencies for the upcoming season. It’s worth noting that both foot and outerwear this fall borrow much from man’s fashion, though trying to keep things as feminine as possible. So balancing femininity and androgynous look is what this season’s outerwear trends are about.
Cropped leather jackets
Biker vibe is in the air this autumn. Cropped jackets top the trend list. They look great with leather skirts, pencil skirts, skinny-legged pants or just voluminous skirts, floral print or neutral dresses. Add skyscraper heels, patent wedges, scarves, hats, and edgy accessories to complete your new city girl image.
As for top trend accessories this season, they are studs, spikes and chains. You can find them anywhere this fall, from purses to belts and ankle boots.
Cropped jackets come in plaid as well. This way you can create a more sophisticated country-girl look. Again, accessories and suitable top trend clothes are essential.
The great thing about cropped jackets this fall is that they are different and suit all age groups. And thanks to celebrities like Kate Moss, Elle Macpherson, Amy Winehouse, Paris Hilton and Victoria Beckham this trend is hotter than ever.
Military is another top trend. Styles borrowed from Russian officer uniformed coats and jackets, Russia tsar-inspired accessories like brass buttons and shoulder epaulettes make the front fashion line. Cossack-style coats, shaggy fur hats and military caps are what you need this fall to look super hot and incredibly stylish.
In cases this kind of fashion experiments in not your type, you can turn to more traditional military look, like khaki coats, for instance.
You can pair your new military outerwear with a mini dress or a voluminous skirt.
Plaids and tartans
Plaid coats are big in thing this fall. Add a pair of trendy rubber boots or stylish motorcycle boots, wear them with outfits with floral prints, and mismatch tweeds and plaids together for an edgy and tremendous style.
Cinched-waist coats are a thing of the past. Designers including Marc Jacobs and Narciso Rodriguez create cocoon-like shapes. Pairing such a coat with stockings, boots, heels, or wedges makes your legs seem long and lean.
It’s neo-’50s style. Elegant and sweet, cashmere coats make a comeback this autumn and winter. Designers like Peter Som, Michael Kors, and Diane von Furstenberg advise having your new cashmere coat in the palest of pastels.
Pocahontas-and-the-like-inspired motives and patterns are also top fashion. You can find them in outerwear, dresses, waists, and skirts. Pair your new coat with tall cuffed, slouch, or motorcycle boots.
