By the end of August every year, we’re still making the best of our favorite summer outfits, but at the same time, we’re already looking forward to our future fall style look. From clothing to makeup trends, here is a summary of the highlights from fall 2018 fashion shows that will help you prepare for your most fashionable fall season!
Freshen up your wardrobe with some chic street-style items
Prepare yourself for an eccentric yet comfortable and extremely flattering wardrobe this fall. Even if you’re the type to typically shy away from new trends out of fear they are too extravagant or bold for you, this fall you’ll have no trouble following the latest runway outfits – from a 1980s fashion revival and Gigi Hadid-inspired athleisure to futuristic metallics. If you’re part of the more alternative youth scene or a passionate devotee of the latest hip culture, you’ll probably opt for a fabulous hippie style, drawing from the free-spirited vibe that clothed the youth of the ‘60s. Flare jeans are so back, as are vintage peasant dresses and billowing blouses. For a more romantic kind of look, mix up ‘60s and ‘90s styles and combine them with some more floral designs. Have we mentioned western ‘80s styles yet? This fall clearly screams retro. On the other hand, if you are the kind of a girl who feels her best in sweats or yoga pants anywhere, not only is it possible to wear them out to any sort of occasion this fall, but it might even be preferred. Gigi Hadid epitomizes this look, and it’s spreading rapidly. We can’t argue with the underlying rationale, as this look provides the ideal opportunity to enjoy feeling comfortable and attractive at the same time. Also, make sure to mix in colorful pastels and lots of yellow.
Keep your hair beach-like messy for the fall too
Are Great Gatsby flapper hairstyles over already? Probably not, but bobbed hair is certainly not as dominant this fall! Embrace your shoulder-length hair and get creative with some braiding and buns. This fall’s runway shows bring incredibly fresh looks, and clothes are not the only eye-catching component. Tom Ford, Tory Burch, and other prominent fashion icons have unreservedly embraced headbands, French braids, and the classic center-part hairstyle. And of course, alongside the millennial fashion trend of trying hard to look like you don’t try, messy is once again wholeheartedly welcome. Top knots, forever-trendy cornrows, and low pony tails are the ultimate hairstyles for fall 2018. Also, if you do not feel like styling your hair, you can just make a neat center part and appear perfectly in style. It’s simple, it’s chic, and it’s casual – just like the whole fashion scene for the fall.
Experiment with bold and exciting beauty trends
After giving your skin a summer break, prepare to try some exciting new makeup trends. You might want to start by applying natural anti ageing skincare products that are timeless tools to keep your skin beautiful and healthy. In comparison to hairstyles and clothes, beauty trends for this fall are far more striking. Major, defined brows are still a thing and have no intention of leaving soon. In combination with Lancome’s contribution to this bold and powerful makeup trend – futuristic dot eyeliner and matte lipsticks – they make a perfect trio. What is back from the dead is smoky eye – shades of warm brown and dusty gray make for a smoky eye that’s somehow appropriate for both day and night. What is back from the ‘90s is a burnt orange lipstick for a very feminine and sensual look. However, when paired with glittery lids (yes, time to bust out that roll-on glitter from your childhood), it creates a confident and exciting choice. You can also play with hints of color without smudging your eyeshadow or smoking out your outer corners. This fall’s beauty trends leave a lot to the imagination and inspire us to get even bolder with our choices, so make sure to take advantage of them while they last!
This season is exciting, colorful and bold, so not exactly a minimalist’s cup of tea. The above suggestions are pretty much all the sartorial and beauty inspiration you will need to guide you this fall. Add some signature accessories to it, such as teeny-tiny sunglasses, oversized backpacks, or fringed purses, and your collection for this upcoming fall will be complete.
