Do’s and Don’ts For Fall 2019 Fashion

*Collaborative post

If you’re updating your wardrobe this fall, it’s time to start shopping. But before you hit the mall or jump online, make sure you’re up to date with all the most recent trends and styles. Plus, a few fashion faux pas you’ll definitely want to stay away from this autumn! Because as Heidi Klum famously coined, “In fashion, one day you’re in and the next you’re out.”

Make Sure You’re Wearing The Right Prints

Animal prints have always been a big part of fashion. Some, like cheetah, almost always have a place in your closet. But, there are a few new print trends this fall that you’ll either want to jump on board with or leave it up to the animals to rock.

 Snakeskin is having a major moment and you can see it just about everywhere. Mainly we’re seeing it on shoes, such as these Madden Girl snakeskin booties. But the print is also being worn on tops, dresses, and even pants. With such neutral colors, snakeskin pairs well with tons of other colors.

 Two prints that we saw come in and out of this year’s fashion faster than lightning were cowskin and zebra. You might remember Meghan Markle rocking a pair of cow print heels to an event this past January, and while the pattern was around for a bit longer, it died off pretty much completely come spring.

 Zebra was another print that we saw on the shelves of H&M that quickly went on sale.

 

Know The Right Jacket To Rock

Matching your outfit to your jacket is (obviously) the best way to complete any outfit. But, wearing a monochromatic jacket/ensemble was one fashion trend from earlier in the year that just didn’t work. Although we do always love a good white on white, it was the dark or bright colors, as seen on Bella Hadid in April, that really just looked too busy. The style was quickly overshined by long camel coats and sequin jackets. Which, likely thanks to Taylor Swift, are more popular than one might suspect right now.

 If you’re searching for the perfect fall jacket, we’ve found it here.

 

Accessorize Appropriately

Ethical and sustainable jewelry is officially the only way to go when it comes to accessorizing. With the recent push for eco-friendly measures in government, the fashion industry has responded. Brands are focused on reducing their footprint and offering more sustainable clothing lines (like the one from H&M). But the jewelry industry has made the biggest strides. Lab-grown diamonds and gems are exploding in popularity due to their 100% ethical source. And it’s not just with fashion jewelry. You can now get a mined-quality diamond that’s created in a lab. So when you start shopping for your vintage engagement ring to match your antique chanel purse, you can walk away with peace of mind that the design may be based on another era, but the technology is that of the 21st century.

How Black Panther Became a Fashion Force to Reckon With

It’s a rare sight to come across movies that not only capture the hearts of their audience but also make a lasting imprint on the world of fashion. I can see why millions of people rushed to the cinemas to watch Black Panther. It is certainly worth all the hype and buzz it’s receiving right now.

Black Panther has definitely taken the fashion industry by storm, with everyone strolling to watch in their beautiful African attires. The ingenuity invested in every outfit in the movie is priceless. Have you seen the movie?

Black Panther Fashion Message

Black Panther sent a strong message to the fashion industry. Aside from the outfits, it gave designers of colour the opportunity to fully express their creative ideas in fashion. This was a privilege that is unfortunately difficult to come by in the industry. In all my years studying the fashion world, I learned that talent alone is not enough to get your work to the forefront. It’s so much more than that. You need connections and money to make your way in. So unless you are well connected and rich or in the position to get financial help, say with Lendgreen Installment Loans, to kick your fashion business moving, you would struggle. 

Black Panther created an avenue for designers of colour to show off the beauty on African fashion. It opened people’s eyes to how beautiful and colourful African fashion can be. Which would in time create more awareness of African designs and fashion designers of colour.

 

The Fashion Buzz

I believe the buzz around Black Panther is shining lights on African and African-American designers. Black Panther helped inspire pieces with the infusion of African prints and a dash of African culture represented in creative designs. It’s strange how African-inspired fashion have been left unnoticed for so long. But thanks to the coming of Black Panther we are not only given the opportunity to see African designs in its full light, we also get to see how it relates to the future. Black Panther shows a world which is technologically advanced thus giving people the chance to see how African-inspired fashion can fit today and the future.

What I Believe

To me this is extremely exciting. I’m always happy when minorities are given a voice. And there’s no better way to speak up than through your creative works.

I see this new development in the fashion scene yielding a positive response. More people will be open to trying what’s new, a culture that they’re not familiar with. As the hype for Black Panther continues, there will be more people embracing futuristic African styles. I also believe that famous designers will start incorporating a touch of African to their designs. But most of all, I am absolutely hopeful that more designers of colour will be given an equal chance to showcase their ingenuity. The fashion industry is dynamic and highly responsive to what’s happening in the world. There’s a lot to thank Black Panther for. I know that there’s more for us to see.

 

Have you seen the Black Panther movie? What are your thoughts?
