how to work this year's Fashion Week trends into your wardrobe

For as long as I can remember I have always scoured the pages of magazines like Vogue’s September issue for recaps on runway shows, fashion inspiration, and the season’s best beauty tips. I’ll admit, it took me a while to understand how to translate the seemingly outlandish trends walking down the runway into my everyday wardrobe. At the time, it was completely over my head to take my interpretation and make these looks my own. Now that I’ve done some growing and researching since my adolescent days, I always look forward to pulling elements from each season. Whether it’s a makeup look, texture or pattern, or specific item, there are truly endless ways to wear Fashion Week’s biggest trends in real life.

Having just returned from my first New York Fashion Week, I’ve finally had a moment to breathe in and take some serious notes when it comes to being backstage and at the runway shows. The artistry that goes into each collection is unreal, and I have a feeling I’ll be on a treasure hunt trying to find the perfect real way pieces to incorporate into my fall wardrobe (can you say Style Steals?). Since fall fashion inspiration was handed to us during spring’s Fashion Week, I dove back in and pulled six of this season’s hottest trends and reworked them into something we can all wear. Below you’ll find everything from bold colors to this season’s most coveted silhouettes and textures. Keep scrolling to see what trends made the list…

Embroidery trend from Fashion Week 2017

1. Embroidery

While this trend may have been as hot as the summer we just had, I’m happy to say that we’ll see embroidery well into fall as well. It’s time to replace those embroidered shorts and off-the-shoulder shirts with embellished denim, jackets, and even shoes. Some of my favorite pieces have to be embroidered mules and occasion dresses like the ones I’ve chosen below.

Bold color trend from New York Fashion Week 2017

2. Bold Colors

This next trend isn’t for the faint of heart: Pops of yellow, fuchsia, and cobalt have been making their way off of the runway and into department stores. Don’t worry, you don’t have to transform your entire closet into every color of the rainbow. Opt for a brighter accessory, statement jewelry, or layer a colorful cardigan over your favorite blouse.

Faux fur trend from NYFW 2017

3. Faux Fur

Here at Team LC, the only fur we’ll be donning this fall and winter is faux fur. From heavy coats to faux fur slides and even tassel charms for your favorite handbag, a little furry embellishment will get you far this season. Plus, there’s no better way to compliment holiday party dresses (not that I’m planning outfits already or anything…).

Loud patterns from NYFW 2017

4. Loud Patterns

Similar to bold colors, don’t be afraid to rock a pattern (or two!) this coming season. After all, print mixing is as popular as ever, on and off the runway. Fall florals, wild animal prints, and plaid are definitely making a splash. For those of you that want to start small, try finding a patterned piece that you love and pair it with neutrals.

Menswear trend from NYFW 2017

5. Menswear

Fall fashion is definitely taking a tip from menswear this season. Button ups, blazers, and oversized trench coats are taking center stage. While everything is exaggerated on the runway, try opting for more long line pieces that tone it down, but still give your outfit a high fashion element.

Heavy metal trend from NYFW 2017

6. Heavy Metals

We’re no stranger to this category on, so I think I can speak for all of us when I say that we love a good shimmer and shine. From head to toe, there’s no wrong way to incorporate metallics into your everyday ensemble. From lux midi skirts to shiny shoes and even handbags, ‘tis the season to sparkle.
