Fall Trend ReportWe’ve scouted out our favorite cozy autumn trends to covet for the rest of 2016. It’s time to get in formation with our fall fashion forecast.
VelvetAiming to feel like a member of the royal family? Elegant and rich velvet is a staple fabric for the fall season. From comfortable ankle boots to fashionable jumpers, the demure fabric is lush enough to dress up any outfit. While hefty velvet jackets may be a little too heavy for the Miami heat, adding a simple cap-sleeve dress or stunning pair of heels can forecast autumn vibes under the sun.

MetallicsWhile the rest of the world bundles up in predictable knitted scarves with gripping pumpkin spice lattes, dare to be a vagabond. Shimmering metallic danced across the fall/winter 2016 runways earlier this year and we can hardly forget the allure. A few of our favorite pieces include a thick strapped metallic Burberry shoulder bag and unbelievably eye-catching Marc Jacobs booties. Give your fall wardrobe the appraisal it deserves and match your confidence with a dash of sparkle. Shine bright in precious metal hues with an attitude to match.

The Bomber JacketLet’s be quite honest—2016 IS the year of the bomber jacket. As the rare winds of a Miami winter roll in, a lightweight bomber is the ideal option to complete your ensemble. An adversary of the bulky fleece sweatshirt, a silk bomber jacket offers the optimal amount of warmth while elevating your chicness status. Every major brand is taking the bomber jacket for a ride, but our treasured choices belong to Sandro, Elie Tahari and the fabulous Tory Burch.

The ChokerSometimes the past can grab you in a chokehold and just won’t let go—it’s called the ’90s. While garage grunge and blue eye shadow have been put to rest, at least one 20-year-old trend is bound to creep back into designer sketchbooks. This year, the choker is back and making rounds on the runway. Volleying from edgy to elegant, designers like Michael Kors, Kate Spade and Alexander McQueen have brought the choker back in a bevy of metals and fabrics.
Alexander McQueen ‘Flower Stone’ Choker Necklace at Nordstrom, $2,795
Kate Spade New York ‘Open Collar’ Necklace at Bloomingdale’s, $248
Gold-Tone Knot Necklace at Michael Kors, $250
Bohemian StylesHippie thrill and carefree chill, bohemian style dresses fit the mantra of the fall season. South Florida may not showcase crisp leaves and changing weather, but it doesn’t mean we can’t dress the part. Warm burgundy, cinnamon and burnt orange hues set the tone for an excellent autumn. You can practically get a whiff of chai lattes and hot cocoa with every effortless twirl of these boho-chic dresses.
