With summer in full swing, the fashion industry is turning their attention to upcoming fall trends. Soon, they will be hitting the shelves, just in time for back to school shopping. For all you teens out there, insiders reveal that the fads this fall will be centered around retro textures, remnants of the vibrant, summer palette and prints from head to toe. For a jump start on your back to school wardrobe, below is a sneak peek into what’s in store for us this fall.

Texture. Everyone loves texture. It catches your eye and movement seems to visually change the outfit. Sleek metallics and soft suedes are certainly in style this fall. Another texture trend that is coming into popularity are quilted fabrics. We are certainly not talking about your grandmother’s quilting, of course. This quilted texture has been redefined as sleek and modern urban-ware. Designers, like Jason Wu and Proenza Schouler, have taken quilted fabric to extreme measures for the fall and created some highly inspirational pieces. Quilted fabric accessories, like Kate Spade’s Gold Coast line of handbags, come in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes. If purchased with a Kate Spade coupon, this affordable, luxurious and trendy accessory may be the key to all your fall attire.

Color. When it comes to the autumn harvest season, we often think of burnt or rustic color palettes. Well, things are changing this fall, and the vivid summer hues are sticking around. Donna Karan has proven that even the loudest colors can be worn in the fall if paired with enough black to tone them down. Balenciaga, too, presented several pieces in a bright blue lagoon hue paired with steel grey, creating a cool, sexy combination. These pops of cheerful color are a breath of fresh air for fall fashion. Do as these fashion geniuses do, and mix electrically charged colors with some soft neutral or black tones for some color-fall fun!
