9 Fall/Winter 2015 Trends for Real—and Tropical—Life

We’ve worked in fashion magazines long enough to know that a lot of the runway trends we see are not really applicable in real, everyday (read: I run around all day) life. This is even more true come September—otherwise known as fashion month—when the Fall/Winter trends are reported in every magazine, broadsheet, and website. (It’s pretty pointless to point out that shearling and velvet are the hottest textures from the shows when you’re talking to the Manila set, right?)

But some good news: every season, there are runway trends that suit the lifestyle and weather we have. Here are our top picks this fashion season:

1. Maxi Skirts

Polish blogger Karolina Sabala’s take is effortless and urban.

2. Mod

Think baby-doll dresses, pastels, mini-skirts. Word of caution: it’s easy to look age-inappropriate wearing this Swinging Sixties trend. Take your cue from Taylor Swift and wear flats and minimal accessories. Probably best to leave the headband to T-Swift.

3. Gold

We would save this trend for the string of Holiday parties. We love how Miroslava Duma interpreted the trend in 2013. (Yes, trends are cyclical.) However, gold can still be worn for any day or occasion via accessories, of course.

4. Feathers

Seems tricky to pull off, but the secret is in wearing it in small doses—as a detail on a shirt, as a skirt, or an accessory (such as a bag).

5. Tailored Suits

Working women, take note: another reason to borrow clothes from your significant other.

6. Military

This trend remains strong this season. Wear it via a jacket, cargo pant, or any piece in this military green.

7. Vintage prints

We love this dress from H&M.

8. Black-and-white prints

This combo is a classic for a reason. As a print? Even better.

9. Orient-inspired

Designers looked to the East for major inspiration this season. The easiest way to wear this trend is via Oriental patterns and prints.
