If you are someone who loves to create her own style, these ideas will offer the perfect mix for a sophisticated closet. Here are the top 5 trend picks for fall 2017.

Love for the 80s: Retro styles have been ruling the fall collections for many years now. Every year, leading labels and designers come up with at least one trend that reflects the love for the bygone era. This year, it was all about 80s. Right from big blazers to large shoulder pads, it’s all about dimension and creating loud shapes. Get inspired by designers like Marco de Vincenzo and Vivienne Tam.

Say it loud: A lot of causes need our attention, and designers sometimes use their outfits to support or promote a specific message. At Prabal Gurung, a tee said ‘I am an immigrant’ while others like Ashish and Missoni talked about other relevant issues, including womens rights and world peace. Some of the abstract designs were just amazing because one piece could express so many things at once. If you’re looking for a strong tee for fall, now is the time to wear one and make your statement.

Velvet girl: In 2016, velvet was one of the most used fabrics for fall… and the trend seems to be back for the current year! Top names like Jason Wu and Jill Stuart worked with velvet in their own ways, right from cut-out dresses, maxi outfits to pant suits. In 2017, you will see more of unique velvet colours, including shades of blue and yellow. Stock up on plenty of velvet for your chic styles and party glam.

Puff it up: Fall clothing needs to be two things: stylish and practical. And this is why puffer coats made a big splash in shows including  Coach, Versace, and Balenciaga. Apart from being ideal for extreme weather, these coats and jackets add more dimensions to winter layering. You will find all sorts of options, right from the classic colours like black to something peppy in orange.
