As September approaches, not only are most of us dreading yet preparing for the back-to-school season but eagerly looking forward to Fall, which, for UAE residents, is a bearable Summer without the excessive humidity. Nevertheless, it’s the cozy fits and warm drinks on the Cafe menus we’re most looking forward to. Presenting to you – some of the hottest Fall wear trends we have our eyes on that make the Summer to kind-of-chill and a pleasant weather outfit transition a lot smoother.
Leather bomber jackets
Is it even Fall if a particular kind of Jacket isn’t trending? The current climate conditions in the UAE make it impossible to sport heavy material outerwear (one can still wear a heavy jacket indoors, given how cold the temperatures are with air conditioning). But in a month or two, we see the return of 2016’s beloved trend – ‘the bomber jacket.’ Given the craze of the y2k era, the bomber jacket trend in leather is the popular choice of the silhouette this Fall. Classic moto style and cropped relaxed fit seem to be the spin, also the leaders of this trend in classic shades of brown and black, and a fun selection of colors is a strong prediction.
White Tank Top
With time, a large majority of audiences have started to embrace the ‘less is more culture in fashion and are now retorting to simpler trends this Fall, starting with – the little white tank top. To create a sense of exclusivity, brands such as Loewe, Chloé, and Prada are adding house logos to these, giving the trend their stamp of approval at the same time, making it quite an affordable purchase. With a large market for it being already created, the Comfortable, easy-to-style white tank top comes in various fabrics and varying price points across different brands.
Low-rise slouchy/puddle pants
After a thorough analysis of most Fall trends for 2022, what’s clear is that we may slowly be retiring from summer’s loose, relaxed top-wear fits to having the same for bottom-wear for now. Giving a break to the sleek and proper look from past years, a new pant style has taken over, which is perfect for the semi-corporate look one wishes to kill it in. The low-rise puddle pants are for people who want a more effortless and laid-back vibe. It’s perfect to pair with another trend- the white tank top for a classic off-duty model look or even perfect with a well-structured cashmere knit sweater for a brunch date with friends.
Maxi Sheer/Translucent dresses
Sheer material in the form of long maxi dresses is big this season. It is quite a versatile piece giving a peek-a-boo effect but without much skin showing like with mini dresses. In a long, slim silhouette, a translucent maxi dress is perfect for showing off curves and has enough room for movement. It is the right piece for someone who wants to look and feel sexy for an evening out in an effortless, non-obvious manner. The piece is timeless enough to layer over a t-shirt/blouse, lace lingerie or under a cardigan or sweater, paired well with kitten heels or trainers.
The trend of oversized, boxy blazers we have styled and seen being styled for several seasons is slowly being replaced with properly tailored blazers and jackets. This has carved a totally new direction for fall to fit a bold hourglass shape like a glove.
