A Complete Guide to the Top Trends of Fall 2019

The runways have spoken, and the ’90s are back. So are the ’70s. And the ’80s. And so are some trends that can’t be traced back to any particular decade. Confusing, I know, but designers like Chanel, Gucci, and more declared everything from power shoulders to micro-micro bags to weird hats a thing, and we can’t wait to join in.

Make Way for Millennial Purple

Millennial pink might be the most overused color in marketing, but purple is what every designer is suggesting for the the party circuit. The range of hues are endless, so pick your purple poison: Michael Kors presented electric sequins, Tom Ford used lavender, and Rodarte presented orchid formal wear.

Every Good Superhero Needs a Cape

One of the strongest outerwear silhouettes to come out of the fall 2019 collections was the cape. Chanel gave the capelet the tweed treatment, Marc Jacobs showed one in Leopard, and Hedi Slimane’s second collection for Celine made the best in basic. The many variations prove the heroic cut works for every occasion.

Put a Feather…Everywhere and Anywhere

Instead of feathers and fur weighing you down, designers are giving the texture a lighter touch. Valentino delicately edged their dresses in a wispy trim, and Proenza Schouler showed a feather-backed top that looked as if it would blow away with a soft breeze.

Cinched Suiting

Designers seemed to mind meld around suit styling: it’s all about the belt. Blazers came with built-in cinchers at Prada, and Marni contrasted its gray suits with heavy, chain belts. Follow their lead and nip the waist on all your suits, oversized and otherwise.

Slip Into Satin

Break out your steamer, because satin is back in a big way. Versace brought back their ’90s satin slip dresses, updating them in neon hues. Christopher Kane, Off-White and Brandon Maxwell also got on the satin trend. The silky look makes sense for formal events, but also a dress shirt for the office.

Slashed, Asymmetrical Necklines

If you’re on the fence about off-the-shoulder silhouettes, this asymmetric neckline is a nice compromise. Carolina Hererra’s slouchy, lopsided shoulder is effortlessly put-together; an “I just threw it on” vibe.
