Main Fashion Trends Fall-Winter 2015-2016
From year to year and from season to season, an “army” of great designers give us their vision on fashionable outfits, trendy colors and fashion styles. Some brands remain true to the old classic style, while others are giving preference to bold and sophisticated experiments. After reviewing all fashion shows for fall-winter 2015-2016 seasons presented by famous designers, we can identify the main trends of the new cold periods.
Trend No.1: mantle, cape poncho
The new cold season is characterized by a large number of different mantles. Salvatore Ferragamo, Bottega Veneta, Ralph Lauren, Chanel are convinced that these details should cover delicate female shoulders in winter. Some of these capes looked like bulky ponchos, others – warm blankets, while others – light fluffy scarves.
Trend No.2: Retro style nostalgia
Rodarte, Prada, Marchesa, Balenciaga decided to appeal to the retro style, hence, on runways were proudly walking models wearing sparkling dresses, monochromatic attires made of fabric for suits, dresses with an accentuated waist line and wide skirts, long gloves, jewelry and fringed handbags, big sunglasses and bell dresses, bright red lips, typical retro style curls, etc. It should be noted that retro style outfits are the perfect solution for those who want at least for a short time to feel heroines of movies or musical. However, we must consider that these images must be created with a great care and attention because the retro style can not tolerate association with other fashion trends. Therefore, if you choose such outfits, you will have to create them to the smallest details: from the pedicure nail polish to hair.
Trend No.3: Fur trimming
Fur is one of the main trends of the fall-winter 2015-2016 season. And now we are not talking about clothes or hats made of fur. It’s about the fact that from this material were created handbags, skirts, scarves, boots, accessories (Oscar de la Renta, Fendi). If clothes made entirely of fur are not something you prefer, then you can opt only for fur trimming.
Trend No.4: Floral explosion
It seems that Zuhair Murad, Oscar de la Renta, Dolce and Gabbana, Marchesa are not taking into account the seasons. Even if the flowers are not typical for the cold season, these brands recommend us to decorate with flowers virtually any garment of the feminine wardrobe – from basic outfits, and ending with jewelers and accessories. In addition, appliqués, embroidery and floral prints can be successfully used both every day as well as at festive evening events.
Trend No.5: Longer
Undoubtedly the maxi length broke all records of popularity in the new cold season. Although in fashion shows could be seen items both in midi and mini length, maxi outfits were seen more often. Ralph Lauren, Emilio Pucci, Versace, Christian Dior paid a special attention to this length. They included in their new lines a lot of long dresses, as well as stockings boots and over the knee boots.

Chalayan, Chanel, DKNY, Dries Van Noten, Fausto Puglisi, Fendi, Salvatore Ferragamo, Lanvin, Kenzo, No21 recommend us to combine in an outfit many fabrics and textures. From now on, the tweed blazer can be dressed over a fluffy fringed dress and the knitted blazer over the long pleated tunic. In addition, certain fashion houses have also experimented with colors and prints, trying to include in an image most varied, and sometimes most incompatible prints and ornaments. And if combining checks with flowers was previously considered impossible, now, some designers find this trend very suitable. And we must mention the patchwork that is always present in the autumn-winter collections.

Trend No. 9: Transparency
A certain category of designers just do not want to reconcile with reality, namely with the fact that in cold period fashionistas need warm and safe clothes. In their view, autumn-winter season is the perfect time to wear lightweight and transparent clothing. This “anti-winter” movement was reflected in the collections of Acne Studios, Balmain, Alberta Ferretti, Isabel Marant, Nina Ricci, Valentino, Saint Laurent. Looking at transparent turtlenecks and lightweight chiffon dresses a question arises: how to wear such clothes when it is very cold? But perhaps there will be no answer to it.
