Fall 2017 Trend #1: Ruffles & Frills
Ruffles and statement frills have been on-trend for several seasons now. Each season, they return to the spotlight under a new guise, with a revamped twist. They are frequently added to simple, minimalist designs to add a fashion-forward focal point.
Case in point? This dramatic red satin gown that has a flowing frilled bodice. The cascading frills immediately grab your attention on this dazzling ruby red look. The sleek satin adds just more sheen and drama.
For the season ahead, looking for layers of frills that adorn the bodice or shoulders. This can form the central point of your formal look. This is a very flattering (and concealing!) style to hide any features you want to cover up too.
This design element can also be paired up with one or more of our other top trends. Combine to create an even more chic look that’s perfect for Fall. You can also just keep it simple in a sleek gown with one bold frill!
Fall 2017 Trend #2: Romantic Gothic
A dark, gothic look is getting a romantic makeover for Fall. This includes layers of black lace and flowing black capes placed on figure-hugging silhouettes. This dark fairy-tale inspired look is given a modern, feminine take.
Look no further than our lace embellished high neck dress. This features a flowing sheer cape and body-highlighting black lace gown. This is belted at the waist to subtly show off your curves.
They key to this look is balance. Choose a long, dark dress. Then insure it adds a dash of glamour into the mix. That could be frilled sleeves, a plunging neckline or embellishments.
Wear this trend to your next winter ball or to a wedding set at midnight. Dial up the drama with a dark lipstick in a plum shade. Go extra sweet with blush accessories.
Fall 2017 Trend #3: Sleek Satin
Satin was so popular in the ’90s – it was everywhere. Now that the fashion world is currently craving a throwback to that era, it has made a big return. Sleek satin gowns are gorgeous and a very diverse style option for an event.
You can find slip style minimalist dresses andeven the more traditional ball gowns. We love the idea of keeping satin simple and sleek. That means used to create a very classic, elegant silhouette.
Take this fitted black satin dress as a prime example. The shape is all about flattering a womanly figure. It’s even got a ruffled back to add a unique feature.
However, keeping it simple with just one focal feature is the way to go. Satin carries a high gloss and is enough to grab the spotlight on its own – and it deserves it. Select a style in a gorgeous shape and you’ll make this trend your own.
Fall 2017 Trend #4: The Power Jumpsuit
No longer does a formal dress code mean you have to wear a dress. We love the new take on power dressing and are all for strong, tailored looks that stand out. Fall is officially the season of the Power Jumpsuit!
This is sexy, empowering and just gorgeous – all rolled into one. A well structured jumpsuit with crisp lines and sharp tailoring is a great way to set yourself apart. We particularly love this high-waisted cross-over jumpsuit.
This trend is about selecting a jumpsuit with ample structure to fit a formal/semi-formal dress code. You may also opt for a design with embellishments or cut-outs to add extra flare. However, even simple tailored looks can really shine.
Just add heels, a clutch and glittering chandelier earrings. Strong accessories will reinforce your girl boss status as you enter the room. A polished ponytail or bun will complete this on-trend styling.
Fall 2017 Trend #5: Blue Velvet
Velvet is another fabric trend that has been around for a few seasons. However, for Fall we’re craving it in many hues of blue. Velvet in shades of teal, navy and aqua are set to light up the red carpet for Fall.
This lustrous fabric is endlessly diverse. It can adorn anything from the effortlessly simple, to the marvelously complex. It changes the whole face of any formal dress style.
We love the idea of adapting velvet onto a traditional ball gown. This sweetheart ball gown looks so elegant, on-trend and unique with its blue velvet bodice. It even ticks off another trend – off-the-shoulder straps.
You can also keep velvet as the main focal point of your look by opting for a sleek sheath/slip style dress. Match up with silver accents to elevate the cool blue tones. Alternatively, juxtapose with a powerful rich red lip.
