Fall Fashion, after a topsy-turvy time that fully dulled our senses, we were due for a fashion answer, one that supplicated us to recall the true joy of dressing. And did the contrivers ever deliver zingy,un-autumnal colour, dégagé catsuits and lots of rest sparkle replacing season-sensible separates. Read on as we relate the most original, most wearable and utmost are-you-for-real fall 2021 fashion trends.
Every time afterlife arrives, we’ve come to anticipate the same largely recycled palette burgundies, browns, olives and that ubiquitous shade of burnt orange. Not this season, however. Contrivers telephoned up the achromatism, stressing their collections with brazen-faced successes of beaming colour modish suiting done up in pucker-y acid herbage at Nina Ricci, a marmalade-hued dress at Roksanda and Gucci’s bright cerise take on a square- shouldered, feather-adorned fleece. Gucci has always kept the fall trend up-beat and going. A beguiling appeal to taste the rainbow if we ever saw one.
The millennial set knew this time would come — fashion remains a cyclical force, after all. The early aughts’ loaded-meets-garish approach to dressing, made notorious by that period’s mononymous icons (Paris, Britney and Mariah, for those born this side of 2000), saw itself reflected on the runways at Dion Lee, Blumarine and Vivienne Westwood. And while the high fashion emblems of Y2K — micro mini skirts, lace-up denim, and fur- collared cardis — are bound to be espoused in full by the youngish generations, for the rest of us, Maisie Wilen’s nostalgic velour two piece mellowed out by its further phased figure will feel just as current.
Coats of grand proportions were, relatively literally, a can’t miss moment this season. At first regard, the substantial outlines sounded designed as wearable measuring sticks for social distancing. Or, maybe upon more auspicious reflection, it was an occasion to take up space after shrinking our physical forms for so long. Either way, the fleeces in question were absolute sensations Marc Jacobs’ inky black puffer colossal in size and nearly bursting at the seams, Louis Vuitton’s supersized parka with speckled pockets plus an age- published hood; and a quilted ski bunny jacket by Miu Miu so big, it couldn’t conceivably be functional on the factual hills. Mileage? No. This is a fashion trend at its most delightful. Louis Vuitton’s fall collections are always the one to keep the celebs looking out of the box.
The catsuit isn’t inescapably a figure we’re used to seeing off the ski hill (how practical could a skin-tight onesie really be in real life?), but with the so- called Roaring Twenties in full swing, there’s no time like the present to bust our narrow conception of what’s “ applicable.” Some of the season’s duplications were of the sheer and sexy, Mugler- inspired variety (Givenchy and Salvatore Ferragamo both issued sensational options) but the most intriguing points of view took alleviation from the forenamed pitches graphic one- pieces at Prada, Kenzo and Emilio Pucci all felt like smart starting points to subcaste upon in the downtime months.
In many months from now, we’d be waxing lyrical about vacation dressing and all the splashy bejeweled minis that fit the bill. But why should sparkle be relegated to December fests and December fests only? Controversy gave us plenitude of good reasons to start the party beforehand. There was Dries Van Noten’s slinky shirt dress covered in ruby red sequins, and a ladies-who-lunch skirt suit from Giambattista Valli, which came trickling in gold sparkle. But the season’s exceedingly covetable name was a glittery unitard from Off-White designed in a largely wearable latte tinge and slack enough to get down with on a Thursday night.
Hands up if after months of sporting lazy, languid apparel you ’re up for a factual fashion trend moment. Meet the season’s sophisticated suiting, always modelled in invariant colour from top to bottom, vests, shirts and ties! included. The Row presented an oat-hued interpretation, redundant long but not inescapably large; Paul Smith accessorized his mod suiting with inversely stark separates identical in a micro-checked pattern; and Ami showed sharp three- piece looks — jacket, trousers and a swishy duster fleece — in solid, striking . You may not be ready to head back to the just office yet, but you can dress the part in the meantime.
Fall Fashion is all about bringing out the summer fits and styling them with some neutrals and coats that keep you stylish and warm. There are various kinds of jackets in the market, and these jackets can be paired with literally anything.
