Spring is upon us in Texas, which in style-related terminology means that Fall Fashion Week just wrapped in New York City. Every major American designer showed their upcoming fall/winter collections at Lincoln Center last week, and of course, DFW Style Daily was obsessed with tracking emerging trends.
Among our favorites were architecturally oversized separates, metallic embellishments, rustic neutrals, and soft leather pieces. Today, we’re filling you in on the looks we loved, and helping you stock your springtime wardrobe with items that will remain relevant throughout the year ahead. And of course, they’re all under $100.
Trend: Soft Leather
Spotted: Derek Lam, Chado Ralph Rucci
Pair Blank NYC’s vegan leather jacket with denim and varying shades of white and cream this spring. Toss it on over a must-have wide-leg pant come fall.
Trend: Architecturally Oversized
Spotted: Proenza Schouler, Calvin Klein
These wide-leg tuxedo pants are beyond affordable, and a perfect match to a skinny ribbed tank and statement shoes right now. Later, give them an edge with rock-n-roll accessories and leather.
Pricetag: $27.80, Forever 21
Trend: Rustic Chic
Spotted: Michael Kors, Douglas Hannant
Free People’s easy maxi dress is an effortless match to ultra high wedges and a cropped denim jacket. When temps dip, team it with neutrals and over-the-knee boots.
Pricetag: $98, Free People
Trend: Metallic Embellishments
Spotted: Marchesa, Ports 1961
We love this bronzed knit sweater with colored gemstones for spring. Down the road, a black cigarette pant and leopard kicks will turn up the drama for fall.
Pricetag: $9.95, H&M
