Three Fall Fashion Trends to Look Out for During The End of 2019

Ryan Roach, Fashion & Style, Managing Editor

During the most recent fall/winter collections there has a call back to the most prolific decades of the 20th century – the 70s, 80s, and 90s. The trends seen on the runways are perfect for the upcoming chill that we are all dreading. So, why not rock the cold in style this fall with these three jaw-dropping trends?

A Good Superhero Moment

This season capes have been all the rage. From the fast-paced streets of New York City in Marc Jacobs to the serene paths of the Louvre in Chanel. Fall is the perfect time to showcase your superhero (or supervillain) side with a huge, over the top cape perfect for the fall/winter burr. On the runways, this trend was seen in all different types of fabrics, cuts, and styles, so every occasion is ideal.

Leather is a Girl’s Best Friend

Leather does not belong on just jackets. As seen in the 2019 fall collections, any garment can be made out of leather. From gowns to blouses, to pants leather have been seen everywhere. While leather can raise animal cruelty issues, you can always opt to wear faux leather, and it looks just as good too? Leather or faux leather is an amazing material for fall because it is just heavy enough to keep you warm without making you too hot. I hope to see all of you rocking a leather piece this fall!

Feather Galore

Out with the old and in with the new, out with the fur and in with the feather. This season feathers have been showcased multiple times on the runways especially in Paris and Milan. Valentino, Prada, and Giambattista Valli have led to the forefront of this trend. While feathers may not protect you from the cold like fur, feathers are more ethically sourced, and the process of incorporating feathers into clothing is not as violent as fur. Feathers offer the lightweight touch with which fur cannot compete. This trend is perfect the chill of the fall, but you might want to invest in a more substantial material for the winter months.
