Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2019 Trend Report

Ahhh here we are, another set of fashion weeks come and gone! From New York, to London, Milan, and Paris, the world has seen a hefty amount of fashion in the past few weeks! There were a whole lot of looks to keep track of, and as a wise woman once said, “ain’t nobody got time for that!” Ain’t nobody got time to sift through the hundreds of fashion week looks that made it down the runways, but you do have time to take a peek at this compact trend report, brought to you by yours truly!

1. Belting over layers
Fall and winter dressing can undoubtedly be characterized by bulky layers, often leaving us looking like shapeless blobs (who else is ready for spring already 🙋?). With this being said, it’s no wonder why this belting over layers trend has emerged in abundance for next fall/winter! Despite the weighty layers and heavy materials of the coats and jackets that were presented, cinching the waist with a belt over the look brought some shape back to some cold winter outfits. From left to right, Missoni, Tibi, Prada, Prabal Gurung, and Versace all sported this waist-accentuating trend.

2. Ruffled necklines

The classic turtleneck has gotten a facelift! The runways were littered with super exaggerated and ruffled necklines these past few weeks. From left to right, Marc Jacobs, Missoni, Gucci, Tory Burch, and Chloé all featured frilly necklines in their collections. These details are highly reminiscent of Victorian/Edwardian fashion…aka the epitome of dainty femininity. But it’s 2019, ladies, so in many looks the fragile femininity of the ruffled necklines was juxtaposed by the masculinity of a blazer or suit jacket. These ruffled necklines ruffled my feathers in the best way possible 😉.

3. 80’s shoulder padding
Dig up the old Ghost Busters VHS tape and turn up the Paula Abdul hits because the 80s are back! Well, at least the colossal shoulder padding of the 80s is. Yes, huge 80s shoulders were a major trend I noticed as I clicked through countless collections! When you feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders, I guess it can’t hurt to have a little extra padding there, right? From left to right, Alexa Chung, Saint Laurent, Prabal Gurung, Moschino, and Balmain all emphasized the shoulders in many of their silhouettes. Time to go thrifting for some 80s treasures? I certainly think so 😌.
