The Peplum

It’s the return of the peplum. The peplum is a strip of fabric that gathers at the waist of a garment and forms a freestanding ‘flounce’ over the hips. It was last at its peak in the 2010s. 

During this time, the peplum was a bit more sophisticated and classic. Now the peplum is taking it to a new level with different shapes and styles. This classic chic style can spice up any outfit. You can either dress it up with a nice pair of slacks or dress it down with a cute pair of jeans.

Peplum-style dresses and skirts are great for more business-style outfits with their chic-fitted look. This pairs great with heels and a workbag.

Dramatic maxi skirts and extreme mini skirts are perfect not only for warm weather but the upcoming fall season — the only difference is the hem. Hemline skirts rest above your ankle but stay below the knee. These will be seen in many different styles from, flowy with slits, to chic and fitted. Paired with a fitted top and sneakers, it’s perfect for a summer, fall transition.

Deep V-Necks

The V necks are back, and they are deeper and chicer than ever. From spring to summer, and even fall, these deep v-necks are taking over the fashion world. Dresses and shirts are utilizing this silhouette in our favor. Creating a very sophisticated and sexy neckline gives women a lot of freedom to style their outfits and accessorize with jewelry. These make any outfit look effortless and classy, at the same time. In the past, they were form-fitting shirts and now they have a more retro, vintage look and feel to them. Rather than a risqué feel, they’re now more classy than ever before.

With popular silhouettes come different colors and shades to style. Colors that have already been hitting the fall runway include rich reds, olive oil greens, and shades of a mellower yellow. When most people think of fall they think of neutral colors but clearly, that’s not the case with these popular colors. 

Rich Red

The color red has always been a staple but now, it’s more prevalent than ever before. Different shades of red have been seen during Fall Fashion Week. More specifically, monochromatic looks have been stealing the show. Though red is a very bold color there are still ways to incorporate this color without having to stand out. Using a plain, neutral colored shirt like white, nude, or black, matched with a red pair of jeans is just the right amount of pop without being too out there.

Olive Oil Green

For celebrities like Priyanka Jonas, Emily Ratajkowsk, Kate Middleton, and Rebel Wilson this color has been a fall favorite. 

Similar to vintage chartreuse, the olive green color is richer and bolder. Though this color can be dressed down with a more casual dress set or just match with a simple pair of jeans, it is often seen in fancier outfits like dramatic dresses or formal business wear like Kate Middleton often wears. This color is great for a night out because you will be sure to stand out in this color. Sticking to the monochromatic look, these make for a very sleek style.

For a dressed up look, an olive yellow dress or skirt makes for a great outfit. For business wear, yellow blazers are perfect for spicing up your look and adding a pop of color. For those who want to dress down a bit more, it pairs well with jeans and slacks. This brings us a little taste of Vitamin D for those cold fall days.
