Words by Steffi Solano 

Jewels, high shine, color clash, and tradition greeted F/W ’17  with show-stopping pieces that took charge of the season.

Still obsessed with these trends? Here’s how you can still wear it now: 

1. Leather Weather

Pinks

Fashion’s trendiest hue is here to dominate in a spectrum of shades.

4. Tales of Tradition 

From gingham, houndstooth to banker stripes, tradition takes reference from Scottish and French history. Culture takes centerstage as fall pays homage to the self-referential old school styles.

Clash prints or wear one on its own. Heritage patterns make a definite statement.

Tory Burch

Fendi

5. Tribal Dominance

Fashion takes inspiration from Asia to Europe, giving the timeless boho aesthetic a modern overhaul. It’s a celebration of traditional ethnic gear all fall with playful prints, rich embroideries, and nostalgic knits.

Create a color story with printed separates that bring the essence of modern traditional style.

6. Hidden Gems 

Shine on jewels take control of the runway with striking ornamentations. Nothing packs a punch into any ensemble than a bejewelled statement piece.
