Curve NY was a great chance to see the Autumn/Winter collections from some of our favorite brands (as well as some newcomers!). We know you will be falling for fall just like we are! See below for my Five for Fall (five trends + a special shout out to some brands to keep your eye on) and stay tuned to TLP for more on these brands in the upcoming months. Don’t forget to let so know what you think on Facebook or Twitter!
Color, Color Everywhere…
It looks like color will be pervading the drawers and racks of your favorite boutiques and department stores this fall. Color palettes include elegant and opulent jewel tones like deep hued purples, full bodied wines, and strong sapphires as well as rich and robust autumnal shades like spice, poppy, and olive. Even the absence of color makes a bold statement with luxurious, creamy colors like blush and oatmeal.
Favorite Brands for Color: Zinke, Brulee, Amulette, Affinitas, CLO
It’s All in the Details!
Prints are back! I’m a huge fan of prints from a little accent to a bold statement. This fall, prints are airy and ethereal and include feature everything from florals to birds to symbols. Other favorite details for fall include the timeless eyelash lace, cheeky ruching, flirty ruffles, edgy hardware, and pretty piping.
Favorite Brands for Details: Beautiful Bottoms, Marlies Dekkers, Lelo, ARI DEIN
Mix it Up
One of my favorite new trends is the concept of mixing and matching. For all you recessionistas out there, this is the perfect way to maximize your lingerie wardrobe. From camisoles, chemises, and robes in alternating colorways to solids and patterns with similar color palettes, there are limitless options for creating a unique look. With so many options, it will be tough to decide!
Favorite Brands for Mixing and Matching: HotMilk, Between the Sheets, La Fee Verte, Amulette
The Romper is Here to Stay!
I’ve proclaimed my love for the romper before and am glad it is here to stay! This fun and flirty silhouette continues to be a trend in many collections that speaks for itself.
Favorite Brands for Rompers: Else, La Fee Verte, Brulee, Zinke
Vintage Inspired Looks
Many brands are using classic looks of the past and reinventing them to be fitting for the modern woman. Long lined bras, high-waisted knickers, and wide straps are just a few of the details that characterize this look of years gone by.
Favorite Brands for Vintage Inspired Looks: Dirty Dolls, Made by Niki, La Filled’O, Else
