Collar It & Point It in Fall 2015
Style is all about the details that make the most significant impact, and Christian Dior, Chanel and Alberta Ferretti know it well. So, wear collars the ways they recommend – over a dress or a blouse, or just on your neck instead of a necklace:

You could opt for pointed collars or round ones, and both cuts will add some 80’s minimalism and an appeal of a high school girl.
Frills, collars, scarfs, neck handkerchiefs and neckbands are also in vogue this Fall:
Furs Coats, Accessories and Fur Dresses FW 2015-2016
Well, after all, it’s no surprise that in Fall and Winter designers suggest wearing furs. The only thing that surprised me is that dozens of couturiers included furs into their collections, as if for the sake of some secret fur-off contest amid them.
The list of competitors included Michael Kors, Altuzarra, Andrew Gn, Fendi, Christian Dior, Dennis Basso, DSQUARED2, Alberta Ferretti and other dominant names.
Christian Dior offered even fur dresses for Winter 2015:
Sometimes it seems that the only thing that mattered was the quantity of fur – the more, the better.
However, there was other criterion – creativity – that insured a competitive score for many players:
According to Céline, fur can be used as a posh accessory. A savvy decision, is it not?
Suede, Fringe and Patchwork FW 2015
Actually, if you wear a suede jacket with no fringe or patchwork, it’ll be okay. But be sure you’ve got at least one third of the suede, fringe and patchwork trend to meet the Fall in.
I think Burberry Prorsum must have obsessed with suede & fringe pieces this season the same way it was obsessed with denim in Spring – the brand presented full lot of suede & fringe stuff.
A fringe dress, skirt, cape, bag or fringe boots – anything will do to keep on trend in Fall:
High Boots for Fall & Winter 2015
If you are young and slim, wear high with miniskirts, A-silhouette dresses and coats. If you are over 40 and you are not that slim, just keep on reading, as there is another bold shoe trend.
In the middle: high boots by Alberta Ferretti, right and left – ones by Christian Dior.
Ankle boots look so French and elegant, and in Fall 2015 we’ll see lots of silhouettes based on the Parisian staple including chunky heeled boots ending above the ankle bone or even above mid-calf. Ankle boots should be a perfect option for midi-dresses, full skirts and cropped pants.
Sheer Dresses for Fall and Winter 2015
To make a bold contrast to the season of the gray, when attending a red-carpet event, wear the sheer.
As to me, I fancy most the contrast of dictionary style of the checked coat and the sheer lace dress by Michael Kors on the left:
Shoes with fur pompoms is an easy way to stay in the fur trend for less, I guess:
Denim and Jeans for Fall and Winter 2015-2016
The previous season there were much more denim wear and jeans on catwalks, but it doesn’t mean you should go by without a pair of good jeans or a denim skirt in Fall.
Enjoy the looks based on denim pieces by Chloé. Even with denim they are wearing fur!
Moschino is so Moschino:). The brand is all about fun and self-irony, is it not?
The handbag the models is holding pictured on the right seems to be a parody of Louis Vuitton‘s signature print:
That’s how DSQUARED2 served some denim pants for Fall and Winter 2015:
Make your legs an accent of the whole look with the help of lace or striped tights, especially if your outfit seems to be a little unsophisticated and simple.
The tights with extra-large fishnets and stripes were seen at Tommy Hilfiger, Bottega Veneta, Rodarte, Monique Hluiller and Proenza Schouler fashion shows FW 2015.
Brocade & Renaissance Girls in Fall and Winter 2015-2016
Perhaps it’s the continuing revival of the ’70s that inspired Chanel, Alberta Ferretti, Mary Katronzou and Burberry Prorsum, but the glamour and texture of brocade is having its better days. Burberry Prorsum included it in jackets, trench coats and patchwork pieces, while Alberta Ferretti and Chanel put a brocade print on skirts and coats. That’s how old-school gone new.
