dress into the future

“Fashion forward” is an elusive concept for many, but with the proliferate effect the Internet has on fashion (along with everything else) we can all stay as close to the edge as ever. We no longer have to wait months to know what designers and buyers have been scheming about. In a few short clicks, we can jump into the fashion future!

Whether you consider yourself fashion forward, fashion now, or fashion backwards, now’s the time to get a running start on fall’s top trends spotted on the runways. Here’s how:

 

Channeling early Madonna, this look is so fun to accessorize with chains, belts, rosary necklaces, and punky glam earrings. Who wants to wait until fall to play with this? Not me! These six pieces let you do it now.

1. S.W.O.R.D Padua Leather Jacket
2. TOM BINNS Dumont Noir Fluorescent Earrings
3. L.A.M.B. Lolita Dress
4. Givenchy Crisscross Ankle Cuff Sandal Booties
5. Elegantly Waisted Eva Chain Belt
6. Falke Net Thigh High Tights


 

This trend has been emerging over the past two seasons or so, but this fall it seems designers are really getting comfortable with using nudes and flesh tones as passengers in the vehicle of bold colors and interesting silhouettes, or layering different shades of them for a rich, creamy effect. Get the look now with these three pieces.

1. Brian Reyes Shingle Skirt
2. Haute Hippie Jersey Tank with Necklace
3. Pour La Victoire Aaliyah Posted Strappy Sandals


 

Cutouts, they’re not just for shoes anymore! (Though they’re still there, too.) We’ve been seeing this all over the fall runways. Alexander Wang, VPL, Thakoon, Vena Cava—the list goes on.
Shredded leggings are big news for fall, but you can get them now.

1. Alexander Wang Silk Sweatshirt with Cutouts
2. Givenchy Cutout Open Toe Ankle Booties
3. Alexander Wang Cutout Dress
