When I heard this fall’s trends being described by Harper’s Bazaar as “granny chic,” I honestly got scared. But as I scanned through photos from fashion week and read some details, I understood and I like it! I think it’s great for a young woman 25+. There’s a lot of structure and sophistication in store for fall that will trickle down across the masses.
As usual, red and other warm tones, flannel, cable knit, and plaid come back for the colder seasons.
Fur accents, leather and animal prints remain timeless and will be a go-to for autumn. The contrasting textures make a bold statement when they’re layered, even if the look is monochromatic.
All white everything,-yes, even after Labor Day-brings that clean, polished appeal. AND it’s easy to accessorize.
I’m not a huge fan of shawls [yet] or embroidery, or jacquard, but they are bound to be popular this coming season.
What do you think of autumn’s chic “granny” style? Will you be purchasing some of these renewed classic pieces to refresh you wardrobe?
