The Women's Fall 2013 Must Have Trends| Part 1

Women's Fall 2013/2014 Trends- Punk and Rebel
Versace, Chanel, Jeremy Scott, Saint Laurent

Punk & Rebel: Whether it be hardcore punk or rebel, designers were definitely feeling like revealing their rebellious side of their brands. Some turned punk into vunk (a.k.a Versace Punk) - the definition of a sexy rebel - while others let out a wilder side in their designs like Jeremy Scott's gooey monster prints. Chanel kept it rebel with a luxury class, and Saint Laurent infused a grungy l'air into his fall looks with those so talked about baby doll dresses we've all heard by now. 

Style Tip: Whether you're feeling this new trend or not, just add a little plaid and punk-y accessories to play around at your discretion. It shouldn't be difficult to search for these accessories, but all you need is your creativity and personal style to make you a woman who implements a style trend impeccably. We guarantee you'll be loving this trend.

Women's Fall 2013/2014 Trends- Fur Coats
Fendi, Roberto Cavalli, Sportsmax, Rachel Zoe
Fur-licious: Fur has been bigger than ever this season that it seems the economy has been doing great. While some may not be in favor of this trend, all we can say is choosing the perfect fur coat could definitely put you on the map of streetstyle photographers this season because fur speaks for itself. Fendi - the best fur in the luxury market - brought a punk vibe to their high-technical fur coats as did Roberto Cavalli's dyed coat. Sporstmax and Rachel Zoe were just some of the few who delivered one of the best short fur coats.

Women's Fall 2013/2014 Trends- Relaxed Colorful Coats
Jil Sander, Miu Miu, Gucci, Céline
Relaxed Coats: Don't be afraid to go loose on your coats this season. Relax and let your coat fall on you like a queen. Coats this season will be stronger than ever and in COLOR! Designers seemed to have turned coats into a colorful, feminine, and somewhat seductive piece to inject into your fall 2013 looks. More than anything else, coats made a wider presence than any other item of clothing you could have imagined; in shorter terms, you need invest in a great coat ASAP.

When it comes to searching for the perfect minimalistic coat, leave it to Jil Sander who had one of the best in her fall 2013 collection. That perfectly cut coat and blue tone will surely last you forever. Or you could elevate the search for a super trendy pink-textured Miu Miu coat with those polka dot scarfs that will be a streetstyle sensation. Gucci opted to give that sensational baby-blue and black detailed collar a somewhat masculine but powerful statement. Céline wasn't left behind with a series of coats, like one pink-blush coat that were one of the best we had seen so far from the brand. Other designers also had good numbers that would make it difficult to choose from unless money is not such a problem. Get me 10 pieces please.

Women's Fall 2013/2014 Trends- Men's Fabric Patterns
Alberta Ferretti, Tommy Hilfiger, Lanvin, Dolce & Gabbana
Men's Fabric: Being that the punk influence was present on many runways, it wasn't so surprising to see designers implementing other masculine patterns into their collections. From plaid, houndstooth, prince of whales, windowpanes, to checked patterns were just some of the men's fabric inspirations designers mixed with feminine looks. Alberta Ferretti took a navy patterned design to turn into a beautiful subtle coat any woman wouldn't mind following this trend. Tommy Hilfiger chose to give his patterns a preppy look, while Lanvin went for an avant garde masculine touch and Dolce & Gabbana injected a feminine domination over those menswear patterns. 

As you can tell, just because we're saying men's fabric it doesn't mean you have to dress like a man. You can still keep your feminine roots over a great patterned men's number.

Women's Fall 2013/2014 Trends- Animal and floral prints
Burberry Prorsum, Valentino, Givenchy, Giambattista Valli
Animal & Floral Prints: Not only were men's fabric the new trend of the season, but in case you were wondering their were also two major feminine prints that made their presence in many presentations. Animal prints - specifically a feline print - were seen throughout collections like Giambattista Valli and Burberry Prorsum. Burberry designer, Christopher Bailey, gave more excitement to these luxury animal prints than any other designer. Valentino wouldn't have been a collection with a series of beautiful floral designs the duo presented, while Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy imbued a dark romantic touch to his floral outerwear jackets. 

Women's Fall 2013/2014 Trends- Tomboy dress code
Alexander Wang, Dsquared2, Rebecca Minkoff, Stella McCartney
Tomboy Attitude: You probably guessed it right. If men's fabric patterns were a hit on the runway, there had to be a tomboy trend present for this fall. Alexander Wang gave a rough tomboy look to his designs, which is difficult not to see coming from Wang, whilst Dsquared2 went with men's formalwear looks. Rebecca Minkoff and Stella McCartney infused a girly and tomboy look at the same time. Which do you go for?

Women's Fall 2013/2014 Trends- Streetstyle to office looks
Proenza Schouler, Carven, Balenciaga, Altuzarra
Streetstyle Officewear: Streetstyle has become a cool influence for the new generations of luxury fans. So why not take your office wear attire to the streets and be photographed wearing the most awesome outfits we crave for? Proenza Schouler gave its trendy round shoulder coats a must have for any office to streetstyle occasicon; streetstyle runs in their roots. Carven's pink ensemble finished the look with those unique white shoes, while Altuzzara's white piece number gave a totally different attitude with those low boots, or high thigh white boots if you saw the collection. What took the crown though this season was Balenciaga's cracked marble designs that would be fit for any important meeting. We'd love to see someone in our office like that.

Women's Fall 2013/2014 Trends- High gloss fabrics
Jonathan Saunders, Salvatore Ferragamo, Gucci, Tibi
High Gloss: Don't forget to polish your skirts or tops this fall. In case you'd like to go for a similar look like Gucci's high gloss satin top without paying a good amount of money, satin fabric is your must go to fabric if you love designing your own clothes. Leather may be difficult to obtain at such a high gloss standards like Jonathan Saunders shiny top or Salvatore Ferragamo's purple leather skirt.

Women's Fall 2013/2014 Trends- Color block looks
3.1 Phillip Lim, Antonio Berardi, Derek Lam, DKNY
Color-Block: This trend is all about geometric patterns as some like to call it. You could invest in a great 3.1 Phillip Lim pink/white/black leather coat that is becoming quite popular, Antono Berardi's sheer cut dress, Derek Lam's must have figure hugging cashmere sweaters, or DKNY's sporty sweater. And maybe you may just have already a good piece hidden in your closet that now calls for the right season to use it.

Women's Fall 2013/2014 Trends- Turtlenecks
Donna Karan, Victoria Beckham, Ralph Lauren, Christian Dior
Turtlenecks: Oh my, the turtlenecks. Turtlenecks may not be for everyone, but designers were surely pushing for this trend to make it into fall's 2013 must have trend. Take it to a sensual level like Donna Karan's gray velvet dress or Victoria Beckham's striking knitwear turtleneck. You could make it chic as always like Ralph Lauren's black knitted number or Christian Dior's intricate one. Which ever route you decide to take, confidence is what will bring out this stated trend.

Women's Fall 2013/2014 Trends- Tailored cropped trousers
Narcisco Rodriguez, N.21, Jason Wu, Prabal Gurung
Tailored-Cropped Trousers: The key to this trends is to have your pants cut just above your ankle and fitted very well. Narciso Rodriguez's colored-cropped trousers were one of the best we had seen so far from this designer. Prabal Gurung took floral printed denim to something women will be wishing for, while N.21 and Jason Wu had something interesting in their trousers; it may have been the manner in which they styled it.

Women's Fall 2013/2014 Trends- High slit skirts and below the knee
N.21, Michael Kors, Burberry Prorsum, Victoria Beckham
High-Slits/ Below the Knee Skirts: Who said below the knee skirts were boring and for old woman? When they come with high-slits we don't find nothing boring in them. In fact, we find a flirty mix between sophistication and sensuality. And if you're not feeling the high-slits, make it fun and youthful like Burberry's camel studded skirt, or simply provocative like Victoria Beckham's tight hugging dark brown skirt paired with a high-slit top.

Women's Fall 2013/2014 Trends- Vintage Elegance and fabric
Nina Ricci, Oscar de la Renta, Bottega Veneta, Prada
Vintage Elegance: As you may tell, there was some sort of vintage essence in the fabric, design, and structure designers went for this season. It may be time to hit a vintage boutique to shop around beautiful pieces of elegant collections this fall. Nina Ricci's suit designs, like a beautiful vivid red suit, and choice of fabric sent a strong message of timeless luxury, while Oscar de la Renta's black draped suit stated vintage luxury all around. Bottega Veneta's semi-unstitched embroidered dress and Prada's asymmetric gray coat and detailed sleeves were just some more beautiful pieces to look around this fall.

Women's Fall 2013/2014 Trends- Sophisticated sleepwear
Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Paco Rabbane, Rochas
Sophisticated Sleepwear: We know a girl can sometimes feel lazy to search for something to wear. Leave it up to Marc Jacobs pajama-like uniform, Louis Vuitton's velvet embroidered sleep gown, Paco Rabbane's laced slip dress, or Rochas' silk pajama to do the work. The goal here is to not make this trend make you look like you just go out of bed or feel MUSTY. It won't work for everyone, for we'd rather go luxury to achieve the trend. 

Women's Fall 2013/2014 Trends- Gray, white, and black colors
Caroline Herrera, Hermès, Elie Saab, Emilio Pucci
Gray, Black, White, & Black/White: The three most basic colors to wear this season are definitely gray, black, and white. DO NOT be afraid to dress in any one of these colors from head to toe. Go for different shades of the same color to nail the look like Carolina Herrera's detailed gray coat and heels. And in case you want to pair two different basic colors, Black/White combinations made a presence on the runway like Hermès full look. 

Women's Fall 2013/2014 Trends- Colorful colors of the season
Lanvin, Diane Von Furstenberg, Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs, Chanel
Total Package: You may have been looking for the real colors of the season to brighten up your fall wardrobe here. Well take note because pink, burgundy, green, violet, and blue are the colors of the season. You probably saw most of them throughout this post, and will see them even more when retails began to make available the new fall collections. 

Women's Fall 2013/2014 Trends- Luxury Embroidery Looks
Dries Van Noten, Tom Ford, Dolce & Gabbana, Balmain
Superb Embellishment: Because luxury is a trend as well, highly luxurious embroidered numbers were made present for those luxury customers this fall. Dries Van Noten pink feather embroidered dress was a must see. Tom Ford's return to the runway came stronger than ever with those embroidered zipped sweaters; not your average ones. We all know how much Dolce & Gabbana's new red embroidered dress will cost - $50,000 for the price of one. Balmain's embellished suit jacket probably won't come too affordable either, for we all know you can expect a draped pink mini skirt for $3,000. How much will this one be then? If you want luxury, you now know to seek for highly innovative embroidery.
