Fall is officially here and if we get in our time machine and go all the way back to the fall 2013 runway, we will find all the current fashion in stores now to keep you warm and trendy. One of this year’s most wearable styles is classic patterns. Fashion is cyclical so after a few seasons of loud and digital prints, designers are rethinking the classics once again including leopard, plaid, and pinstripes- as shown on Glamour‘s fall runway report.
Some designers have taken that idea to heart by employing masculine patterns. Style.com reports that the likes of Haider Ackermann, Alber Elbaz, Lanvin, and Dries Van Noten have reworked classic fabrics like herringbone and Houndstooth onto feminine cuts. Get inspiration from some looks below.
Runway to Reality- here are some easy to shop pieces without the runway pricetagIrish-inspired
Feel the luck of the Irish with this pattern inspired by their tartan kilts. Normally worn by men, the pattern gets a feminine cut in the Panelled Yoke Sketchy Checked Dresses by M&S.
If you want to go understated, you could wear the pattern as an accessory instead. Houndstooth may be a masculine print but the use of black and white keeps it gender neutral and exudes a simple elegance. This clutch by Banana Republic is just perfect.
We are going to dust off our houndstooth coat now! Which pattern will work for you this fall? Tell us more about it.
