With just a couple of weeks ’til fall, we should be getting our wardrobe ready for the chilly season. I’m sure a lot of big fashion names out there are already launching their autumn 2016 collection. In fact, during the New York Fashion Week, celebrity designers showed their stuff on the famous runway. This includes Michael Kors, Tory Burch, Proenza Schouler, and many more.
One thing I’ve noticed in the recently concluded NY Fashion Week was that they had a handful of recurring looks from the past few years. Some of the recurring trends include billowy tops, florals, slinky slip dress, strapless tops, and plains, plains, plains. Yup, we can’t seem to get enough of plains. Moreover, chunky knits, billowy trousers, and other similar pieces also kept on popping up in the fall collection of recent years.

In fact, the fall trends these past couple of years look a bit too flimsy to keep you warm during fall, right? Yes, there are still of course furs, jackets, sweaters, and all that stuff included in the collection but it seems they’re not as “heavy” as before. Well, you can blame it on the exceptionally warm weather the past few years. Because it has become warmer (global warming?), designers are forced to create spring-like collections rather than for autumn. Still, there’s plenty of fashionable autumn clothing to look forward to.
