Nine hundred and twelve pages later, the September issue of Vogue provides a wealth of images for the upcoming Fall season.
From tweed to velvet, to fur and gold, florals and lace to leopard and snakeskin. Paisley prints and chinese vases, chunky knits and matching mod prints, this fall will touch base with many of the times classics as well as making some bold introductions.
What I learned: Ads say so much more than you’d expect. I went page by page and made notes of all the colors, textures, prints, patterns and even the hairstyles. After the third time you’ve written down “royal purple” you really know what colors to invest in. I also noticed several references to Steampunk culture, very Sherlock Holmes as well as Alice in Wonderland. Overall remember to wear bold colors or go neutral. Mix textures, match patterns, and note that ornamentation is key.
