Every year around this time we get our fashion ques from the runways and fashion magazines just as fall begins. Here’s a list of runway fashion trends that caught our eye found right here at Crabtree Valley Mall.

TRENCH COAT:

Look for this classic piece with a twist. Fall in North Carolina is not necessarily as cool as in other parts of the country. A trench coat can serve as the in-between coat on cooler days. Look for fashion-forward patterns and colors for a new twist on the classic. COACH designer-esque trench coats with great details for the traditional coat.

NEUTRAL SNAKESKIN:

A somewhat classic print, what’s new about this trend this season is that it is serving as a neutral. Many retailers are showcasing the tough exotic snakeskin print in neutral hues on just about everything. White House Black Market newest fall arrivals are full of this wild motif.

OVERSIZEDBAGS:

The mini bag trend was fun, but we’re back to bigger bags. Oversized hobo bags, and totes. If you still love the mini bag trend, it can go inside your oversized bag. The MICHAEL Michael Kors Bedford Travel Tote Bag is a must have! The acorn color is classic, the details are exquisite andthe size is perfect!

CROCODILEEMBOSSED SHOES:

Mock-croc (as it’s called in the industry—because we’re over wearing animals for fashion) makes any shoe look more expensive! From loafers to boots this fall faux crocodile embossed shoes are fall’s favorite shoe!

LEATHER HEAD TO TOE:

Matchy-Matchy leather outfits. It’s all about leather skirts and pants with leather tops all in slimmer silhouettes and monochromatic looks. This trend is a nod to the 80’s but with a sleeker, fitted modern fits.
