Fall Fashion Trends – From Runway to Reality

Styles for fall in Florida just don’t make it onto the runways of Fashion Weeks in the fashion capitals of New York or Paris. Designers from out-of-state don’t know how we “do” fall in South Florida from a stylistic perspective. But CityPlace has the know-how and flair you need to work fashion’s most popular fall trends into our fourth-quarter wardrobes! All of these looks can be found at CityPlace.


This sensual velvet kimono with mesh and fringe from Anthropologie is super-soft on your skin and perfect for Florida’s fall weather. Velvet is a denser fabric that can be too warm for our climate, but as a kimono (with built–in A/C) coupled with dark jeans and a tank is the perfect fall look for our “cold” autumn nights.

Metal Details

You might think that metal is too “alternative” for your look, but it’s white-hot these days even among more ladylike lines like Michael Kors. Metal details are a signature of the fall fashion runways this year. This flattering little black dress (LBD) with metal embellishments from BCBG is perfect for a first date at the Improv, or a night out at Blue Martini with your #girlsquad.

Statement Choker

We FINALLY have a reason to dress like Kristin Cavallari in her Laguna Beach days. Chokers are back, baby, and you can say ‘goodbye’ to the thin shoestring style and ‘hello’ to the bigger, bolder sister: the statement choker. Afffair’s 2016 collection had statement chokers galore. They’re wrapped around the elegant necks of stars like Bella Hadid and Emily Ratajkowski. This  choker from Charming Charlie is elegant and versatile; a fall must-have.


Pink & Yellow

It’s not often that designers include bright colors into collections for fall, but Floridians know better than anyone that brilliant hues are always in style. Ulla Johnson’s pink jumper over a yellow turtleneck is to die for, but it doesn’t work with our high daily temps.  These two American Rag pieces from Macy’s are the perfect way to embrace the bold color combo, and could work for both day and night.

Schoolgirl Jumpers

If you went to a private school, you hated your uniform. Who knew you would be sporting the same look years later…by choice. This denim romper from Lucky Brand is casual and cute, yet unbelievably comfortable. Sport it going to lunch with friends — and prepare to be complimented.
