As the holiday season approaches we transport ourselves to a magical world of fall fashions, where we can enjoy the wonders of full knit ensembles, silky sleepwear, flurries of fluffy feathers and fun prints on furs. As we turn yet another page in the fashion chronicle, we spy chic coats, comfy run-around styles and fun, feminine textures. Read on to discover this season’s top trends in fashion and style.

 It’s no surprise that one of the hottest trends this season is what we’ve come to call sleepy street style or bedtime chic:  a mix of wearable silk pajamas, robes and quilted ponchos that are comfy enough to wear at home while still all the rage on the streets. We saw many designers showcase silk pajama ensembles in an array of printed and quilted fabrics with beautiful detailing and construction fit for a night on the town. Our favorite styles were seen at House of Holland, Gucci and Chanel. Easily worn with a sexy pair of pumps or a comfy house slipper, the silky sleepwear is the next best thing to staying in bed all day.
Who doesn’t love a chunky knit sweater? This fall has a wide variety available, keeping fashionistas comfy and cozy all season long. It’s obvious we would encounter some knit wear during the fall showcasing, but we were amazed at the amount we saw on the runways of Sonia Rykiel, Loewe and Fendi. Whether a clean, simple knit or a raw edge unfinished garment, the feel of a chunky knit is incomparable. Turn up any heavy knit sweater with a nice pair of distressed denim jeans and a simple pump or brave the elements and wear it alone as a sweater dress with a pair of knee- or thigh-high boots. Your options are endless!


Another trend can best be described as fluffed, ruffled and as light as a feather. The use of plumage in garments has hit an all-time peak this season with powerhouses like Balenciaga, McQueen and Sonia Rykiel turning up the couture factor on seemingly simple garments like coats, cloaks, dresses, skirts and sleeve cuffs. What was once used as a means to create drama and movement for over the top ensembles has now become an effortlessly poised and stylish way of making even the most simple garment look runway worthy.

The antidote to the winter blues has been answered, and in an almost-childlike manner the playful, technicolor hues and designs we encountered on fur coats was a fresh breath of chilly air. Fur is not holding back this season; whether real or faux, we can’t seem to find a designer that omitted the lush fluff of fur on their catwalks, themost memorable pieces originating from Prabal Gurung, Tory Birch, Fendi and Libertine. A fur coat needs no introduction to wear; throw it on and go. It will make any outfit red carpet worthy!
Stay tuned for our next article, where we will discuss holiday attire that will make you the talk of the night. For now, enjoy the change of the seasons, and here’s to hoping we get a nice blast of cool air in our sunny little city. Always remember fashion is what you make of it; be you, wear what makes you happy. In the end fashion is all about self-interpretation.
