What's Hot for Fall/Winter

Maxi Dress (Issac Mizrahi)- maxi dresses have been in for a while, and from the looks of it, they aren't going 'out' any time soon. They're great transitional pieces, because you can wear them in the summer, and maybe even the winter, depending where you live.

One Shoulder (Carolos Miele)- A lot of dresses this season have the one-shoulder look, not quite as revealing as strapless, but not as prim as sleeveless. The one word that I could use to describe all of these looks is 'edgy'- this is because designers are taking a lot of inspiration from trends from the 80s.
The Playsuit Look (Brian Reyes)- Playsuits made their comeback over the summer, and now, you'll find them everywhere. This particular look isn't exactly a playsuit, but it combines the two basic elements- high waisted shorts, and a tucked in tank.
Shirt Dresses (Arise: African Promise Collective)- this is one trend that anyone can do, no matter their age or style. You can dress them up or down, all depending on the shoes that you pair with.
See Through (Allude)- This is that kind of a trend that not everyone can pull off, but the people who can look killer. Your best bet would be a see-through vintage lace top with a cami underneath- it's edgy but not crossing the line.
Tribal Prints (Alexandre Herchcovitch)- Bright tribal prints add a nice pop of color to normally boring outfits. They're a great effortless way to add some pattern into your outfit.

The Fitted Jacket (3.1 Phillip Lim)- You're going to see fitted jackets on almost any runway. They're great versatile pieces that can be paired with pants or skirts for a more edgy take on any 9 to 5.
