Warm colors, monochrome, vibrant prints, checks… What does the fall-winter season will show us in terms of chromatic trends? In Horse, we summarize the keys to “paint” your clothes during the next months.
If there is a trend regarding color for the fall-winter season is monochrome. Looks created from top to bottom following the same tonality or color palette. Toasted colors are the ones outstanding: earth, beige, mustard … that return year after year to the winter fashion shows.
That predominance of warm colors continues its line with outfits in pastel pink and red. The light pink gives an air of winter princess to the designs, which is accentuated by other elements such as vaporous fabrics, flower embroidery, transparencies and fur coats and stoles.
Totally contrary is the effect produced by the vibrant reds, both as single color and combined with black. Symbol of timeless elegance, red is the color of the strong woman par excellence.
Large and colorful prints
In contrast to warm tones and monochromatic outfits, when designers dare to print they do it in a big way. Colorful and with striking patterns. In the case of Dolce & Gabbana and Missoni, coats are the ones that mark all the outfit and attract all the attention. The first even dares to have a patchwork effect. Moschino and Miu opt for full suits.
Without fear of combining them. Different geometric figures, checks mixed with flowers and other prints and all forming part of the same outfit. The bold mixtures of patterns let the imagination run wild. Fashion is fun and you should not be afraid to play with it.
Pictures, flowers and animal print as the main stars
If there are three prints that have predominated in the designs for autumn-winter are checks, flowers and leopard. Check matches with tweed fabrics and with tartan, so in trend for this season. A retro style that Gucci brings to its maximum exponent.
Flowers, which are usually reserved for the spring and summer seasons, have filled the catwalks with color and texture. Chanel chooses to add small three-dimensional details, Versace and Fendi opt for more overloaded embroidery while Dolce & Gabbana opts for a lingerie look with a stamping of considerable dimensions. There are many options to be inspired so you don’t need to leave floral print only for spring.
Finally, leopard. And it is that it seems that you cannot have a closet without a coat or a leopard dress for next winter. Last season we already saw this print on jackets and coats, but this fall-winter we can find it on an even wider range of garments and fabrics. Dolce & Gabbana goes further and turns their models into authentic stuffed animals, adorned from top to bottom with soft fur garments that show the snout and ears of the animal. Another way to reinvent the animal print and fur garments.
From the sobriety of the monochromatic shades to the excess of the large and striking prints, and you, which one you choose?
