10 Fall ’16 Lines That Have Me Looking Ahead


Primarily of course I fancy myself a very DIY / thrift-haul type of fashionista (God, I hate that word) so a post containing couture run-way shots may feel a bit out of place here. But the truth is… I adore fashion in all its varying forms (although many of these forms could do with a better earth-consciousness…but I digress) and high fashion is no exception. So, although these FALL ’16 lines premiered much earlier this year, I found myself scanning through some of my favorite designers in my mid-late summer haze, dreaming of Fall and its incredible possibilities, searching for inspiration and a reason to carry on. Summer truly drains me. I’m much like my little Boston Terrier pup in that I simply can NOT take the heat! I’m paler-than-pale and love to layer, so I think that suffices to say Fall/Winter is my happy place.

So as I revisited these lines I couldn’t help but feel consumed with inspiration! Some of my favorite trends I’ve seen throughout the FALL 16 season have been the over-the-top use of embellishment from patches and embroidery to beads, the consistent mixing of textures with velvet and lace and OF COURSE, the clearly 1960s/1970s-inspired vibes peeking through in nearly every one of these collections.  I couldn’t help but share a few looks from my top 10 Fall ready-to-wear lines that have me looking ahead and onward to darker, colder days. Read on to enjoy some fall-fashion eye candy and count down the days with me ❤
