It is the first day of Autumn here in the States and I’m thrilled! I adore cold weather for it’s warmer more modest fashions. Twice a year I present to you the current fashions with a 19th century twist. Imagine yourself as a Victorian gal flipping through the fashion plates from Pars of the latest woman’s periodical. Like us Moderns, you’d read up on the upcoming fashion trends and trying to figure out how to incorporate the newest designs into your current wardrobe. Or perhaps you were born or married into money and you send for a whole new set of bespoke gowns to be made straight away! At least eight ensembles, naturally, because that is the amount on the list provided. Below is a list of eight out of twelve trends for Fall 2016 as predicted by Vogue Runway. Beside each trend is a how a 19th century lady might choose to interpret the trend in question along with a blurb about the trend in general. Like Spring lace and pastels, Fall has many familiar trends that is inherited with the cold weather that appear year after year. I’m beginning to wonder if I should source my trends list from another site all together for variety’s sake! Regardless, this was a real joy to assemble.
