Fall's rich hues and tactile fabrics aren't just what the season's fashion shows are made of, over the next six months could also be the colors and motifs you'll be layering into your fall and winter home decor. This season, the look is glittery and floral and a little bit retro, according to ELLE.com's Leah Melby Clinton. Read on for 6 ways to bring the runways' most inspired looks home with you.
The names stayed the same — blazer, dress, sweatshirt — but that’s about it. Designers mixed fabrications, slashed, stitched, and removed entire sleeves to shake things up (reference Burberry, Ports 1961, and DVF). The result is arresting to see and slightly jarring to the sartorial brain, as stylish dressers work to decode a new dialect.

The fashion world’s adoption of norm-core and vintage-looking pieces meant the bling of the aughts took a backseat. The Saint Laurent F/W 2017 collection re-introduced it for a major cameo by way of slouchy, over-the-top sparkle boots (and its presence was confirmed via appearances at Chanel and J.Crew).

Spring and summer’s kitschy focus on gingham has given way to retro plaids more appropriate for crisp autumn days. The century-spanning pattern gets its ‘70s touch due to the palette it was most often cast in. Brown, tan, and russet orange all played nice together at shows like Bottega Veneta, Chloe, and Prada.

Every season ushers in a standout color trend, and this fall is all about power red. Tomato, cherry, firetruck…the spectrum is bright and bold, and trendsetters aren’t being bashful about how it’s worn. Runways like Oscar de la Renta and Givenchy showed it as monochromatic moments, with the fiery hue represented from head to toe.

Billowing sleeves, belted waists, and rich embroidery defined the it-dress of recent springs and summers. The Russian doll look has now segued into cool weather, with fur-collared coats, knee-high boots, and stitched separates creating an opulent mood at houses like Gucci, Derek Lam, and Naeem Khan.

Soft velvet has been steadily rising on the trend charts, and the fall and winter seasons are its real time to shine (the luxe fabric is a bit too heavy for major play in summer). Altuzarra, Erdem, and Jason Wu used it for formalwear; jeweltones made it appear ultra luxurious.
