Despite it being 89 degrees in DC today, fall has technically arrived and that means it’s time to buy your pumpkin-spiced latte, throw on a chunky knit sweater, your favorite boots and go apple picking!
But wait, didn’t you Marie Kondo your closet in the spring? Uh oh! No worries, LePrix’s partnerships with over 600 designer resale boutiques worldwide ensures we have everything you need to rebuild that wardrobe and replenish it with all the hottest trends for fall!
So, what were the top trends seen on the runways for Fall/Winter 2019? Let’s take a look!
- Mini bags
- Cheetah and leopard print
- Leather clothing
- Good goth/All black everything
- Metallics/heavy metal
- Menswear & suiting for women
- Croc bags
Now, trends come and go so there’s no reason to run out and buy an entire closet full of Elvira-approved black clothing or invest in multiple mini bags…everything in moderation. One mini bag, a black lace dress, a studded leather jacket and then finish off the look with some leopard-print heels and BOOM, you’re runway-ready!
Well, I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to go shopping for some trendy fall items.
The Mini Bag
So, I can't really wrap my brain (or hands) around the usefulness of a mini or micro bag, but the Jacquemus Le Petite Chiquito Micro Bag
has taken the fashion world by storm. This leather bag is not only rare, but also sold out everywhere. It can be worn crossbody-style or around your neck, just like a necklace.
is the perfect fall and winter fabric. Whether it's on a newsboy cap, a structured blazer or a pain of jodhpur pants, tweed is a fashionable and functional option. I'm in love with the preppy, equestrian-style lines that feature tweed and leather inserts, but let's take a moment to adore this Louis Vuitton Capucines Tweed handbag that's crafted in black tweed and leather, features a single loop leather handle secured by jewel-like rings, frontal flap, and gold-tone hardware.
Cheetah & Leopard Print
Since leopard and cheetah print are big this fall, make sure you stand tall in one of the hottest trends this season!
Take a walk on the wild side in these leopard-print, Christian Louboutin Patent Leather Prive Studded Pumps.
I have a pet angora bunny, so sometimes I feel guilty for wearing fur and leather, but we need to stay warm! Leather
is one of my greatest weaknesses. Whether it's a leather jacket, a pair of leggings or a pleated patent leather mini skirt, I'm in love. And the same goes for this sumptuous, studded leather Gucci Jacket with a GG belt.
All Black Everything
Are you feeling like a virgin? Back in the 80s, Madonna made black lace an absolute must-have. Whether she was wearing a black lace skirt, fingerless gloves or leggings, her style inspired wardrobes all over the world. Well black is trendy again
—like it ever went out of style—and that means you can channel your favorite material girl with this Yves Saint Laurent 1980s couture velvet and lace cocktail dress and be en vogue.
Saying knits are trendy
in the fall is like saying snow is white and leaves fall off trees. But here we are, so if you're going to be extra trendy in knits, why not go all out and get a Fendi sweater? This Fendi Mania crewneck sweater is crafted in a plush mohair and alpaca blend and it's adorned with the Fila x Fendi collection logo for some sporty chic coziness.
Neon is back
and hotter than ever. Ultra-bright colors dominated the catwalks with either ensembles that had subtle pops of neon or head-to-toe human glow. Well, we'd prefer to add a pop of color rather than turn you into a human glowstick. Behold one of my favorite bags, the Balenciaga City Bag, a lightweight carryall that'll add a punch of color to any ensemble.
Heavy metal isn't just for rockstars...metallics are hot for fall.
Whether you're going for the gold, or loving deep dark colours like red, olive or purple, metallics will steal the show! This Christian Dior J'adior Metallic shoulder bag is as good as gold, or silver!
Menswear & Suiting
Nothing says timeless quite like a Chanel tweed jacket. And while menswear and suiting
is a hot trend for fall, you can still do trendy and classic at the same time without shopping your boyfriend's closet, and Chanel proves this over and over again!
