It’s that time of year again when we trade in our tank tops for sweaters, our high-waisted shorts for high-waisted jeans and our sandals for boots. It’s time for fall. Oh and for those of you who are Starbucks lovers, it also means the pumpkin spice latte is back. For fashion lovers everywhere the fall isn’t about pumpkin spice lattes, or maybe it is a little bit, it is all about New York Fashion Week. Designers who present at New York Fashion Week set the stage for the following seasons’ trends. Fashionistas/os gain inspiration from collections such as Prabal Gurung, Opening Ceremony, Jeremy Scott, Diane von Furstenberg and many more.
Going back to fall style, a certain decade has inspired the “it” trend of the season. This decade is the ’70s. It was seen on many runways at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week and now celebrities and style stars are being seen rocking ’70s-inspired looks. The bohemian aesthetic of the ’70s-inspired designers to create garments with floral fabrics, billowy silhouettes, knits and flares.
