NEW YORK, August 31 – Back to school, back to the office – style is getting serious as September begins. Gone are the sandals, beach dresses, and other remnants of summer vacation, replaced by new outfits more suited to the worlds of work and study. Clothing, accessories, color, print… Let’s take a look at the key trends for the new season.
A fashion item: A micro-skirt
The micro-skirt trend dates back to last spring, with the Miu Miu collection bringing this 2000 icon back into fashion. autumn. There’s no debating what skirt lengths are trending this season; brands Courrèges, Supriya Lele, Diesel (with its micro-skirt belt design), and of course Miu Miu have all gone super short. Not content with having made the mini-skirt a spring (and summer) star, the Italian house has also made it an essential piece for fall, reinterpreting it in a sports version, or even in shorts. Straight or pleated, black, colored or sequined, the micro-skirt, which was a Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera staple 20 years ago, will be the centerpiece of your wardrobe until next spring.
The pants: indented
Let’s face it, throwbacks to the 2000s – known as Y2K inspiration – will always be a part of the fall season, starting with low-cut pants and jeans. After years marked by high-waisted pants, make way for models cut at the hips, preferably worn with wide belts and crop tops. Givenchy, Versace, Diesel and Missoni have all shown such styles in their collections for Spring-Summer and Fall-Winter 2022, in the form of flowing or straight jeans with a loose fit as well as cargo pants.
” />A color: Pink
Although it’s not everywhere yet, pink – in its flashiest, girliest tones – will be the color of fall, adding a touch of zest and optimism to a season – and a time – who really needs it. The trend is part of a larger phenomenon, Barbiecore, inspired by the clothing essentials of the most famous doll on the planet. Valentino has clearly set the tone this season, with a show featuring only two shades: fuchsia pink and black, all in contrast. But the Italian brand is not the only one to bet on this dynamic shade; Versace, Michael Kors and Dolce & Gabbana were all thinking pink too. The purpose of the marks is to add a bit of levity to the dressing.
Unlike pink or low-cut styles, checks are almost always associated with the fall season, coming in different versions to suit everyone’s taste. But this year, they are present in particular in two major global clothing styles, punk and preppy, which are among the main inspirations of the season. Coats, sleeveless sweaters, shirts, blazers, pants, skirts… Small or oversized, checks will be everywhere and will not go unnoticed. Emilia Wickstead, Paul & Joe and Marine Serre are among the brands that have included checks in their latest collections.
A shoe: Moccasins
Boots, whether soft, vinyl or fur, are of course a must-have for fall. But if you had to pick just one pair of shoes this year, go for loafers. Combining style and comfort, they are an ideal alternative to the very chic heels whose real return is not expected until later this fall. Black or colored, with or without laces, moccasins come in all shapes, even if the models with thick notched or notched soles seem to be the stars of the season. Emma Chamberlain, Hailey Bieber and Kendall Jenner have already succumbed to the charm of loafers.
An accessory: A tie
If the Covid-19 pandemic is not behind us yet, it is clear that life has resumed a slightly more normal rhythm, and with it a more formal style. If the suit will only appear in a discreet and minor way in the female – and male – locker room, the tie, if possible preppy, is making a comeback. An accessory symbolizing power, as well as the liberation of certain gender stereotypes. Louis Vuitton, Dior, Gucci and Ralph Lauren have all released looks incorporating ties. And if you don’t like it, you can always opt for a balaclava, another essential accessory of the season. — Studio ETX
