Fall’s most popular menswear trend, Athleisure, has finally surpassed the heritage trend, which has reigned supreme for the last several years. For this trend pair hip tracksuit jackets with dress pants or try a tracksuit jacket in luxurious fabrics like satin or sequins as seen at Burberry and Neil Barrett.

For fall the super saturated nail is hot but the color of the season is blue. A few of our favorites include Burberry’s Imperial Blue ($22), Essie’s After School Boy Blazer ($9) and Deborah Lippmann’s Rolling in the Deep ($18).
Raf Simons, who recently stepped down as the designer from CChristian Dior, has been snagged by Calvin Klein. This highly regarded luxury European designer will surely give the New York brand a new life and much needed credibility to the flagging brand.

After a new high with the fall collections (shown last spring) the percentage of models of color on the New York runways has taken a slight drop, what’s going on? So although numbers of diverse models are heading in the right direction, they’re still not equal to the reality of our world.
If you didn’t already know, studs are over! The shoulder-grazing earring trend continues this season and was spotted on the runway shows of Rodarte, Marni, Stella McCartney, Sonia Rykiel, Valentino, Lanvin, Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton and Alexander McQueen. The dangly earrings are perfect for the upcoming party season as it looks killer with bare shoulders and a topknot.
F is Fur
To be on trend this fall add a touch of fur into your wardrobe, either a fun accessory (Fendi) or just a collar (Sonia Rykiel). We especially like the faux furboots seen at Topshop.
Handbags have been given the rock n’ roll treatment this fall with extra wide, striped webbing and embellished straps. It was seen in the collections of high-end designers Lanvin, Fendi and Gucci, as well as more affordable brands like Elle & Jae, Steven Madden and Rebecca Minkoff.

The must have winter boot is the hiking boot, but don’t worry you don’t actually have to go hiking in them. Available in a flat (Stuart Weitzman and Nine West) or with a block heel (Louis Vuitton and Tod’s), they look especially cool worn with a dress like at Prada and Maison Margiela.
Three major designers have made a stance for plus size women. Christian Siriano’s spring ‘17 show saw five plus sizes models walking the runway. While Tracy Reese will be offering a wider range of sizes, 0-18, with her spring 2017 collection. And Prabal Gurung is partnering with a plus size clothing brand, Lane Bryant for a Spring 2017 collection.

This season’s must have jacket for guys is the bomber. It might have started last summer but the trend isn’t going anywhere, in fact, it has become so popular that it has overtaken the denim jacket. Spotted in the collections of Jil Sander, Maison Margiela, Topman and H&M. But don’t get rid of your denim jacket just yet, a classic never goes out of style.
The knit of choice is the turtleneck, for men, it’s the perfect piece to throw under a suit (Hermes, Boss selection, Reiss) and for women wear it under sleeveless dresses (Creatures of the Wind, Tory Burch and Karen Walker).
Menswear changes at a snails pace so we don’t see the slim trouser going anywhere soon but a new crop of looser, wide leg trouser has popped up at Fendi and Burberry shows.
One of the biggest trends for fall is taking their cue from the boys. What makes it new this season is the mix of men’s suiting fabrics with a feminine silhouette DKNY, J.Crew and Monse).
