Cast Aside Your Workplace Wardrobe and Showcase Your Personal Style with Fall 2015 Fashion Trends – 

Slouchy t-shirts are among the dangerous tempting items which constantly lure your mind into thinking that, because you’re not a movie star, so no one is going to care what you wear off-work; and because there’re no paparazzi chasing you around trying to capture every single detail that might prove your secret casual sides outside of all your fames and shines, of which both your boss and your co-workers are barely aware of… There’s a difference between anti-casual and dressing up properly off-duty. Yet it could easily be too much once you accidentally over-do it, making yourself look like that you just want to stay in the professional, formal wear comfort-zone and getting rigid. Rigidness is the greatest enemy when it comes to dressing up properly for your off-duty chicness. Bolder colors? Bigger chains? Higher heels? Cast aside your workplace wardrobe and showcase your personal style. Let’s have a look back at 2015 fall/winter runways and see what exactly the items are, which are going to be the must-haves for your wardrobe refreshment, heading towards the colder seasons this year.


Fall 2015 Fashion Wardrobe Trends for Outside of the Workplace

Statement Earrings  –   Large Broaches  –  Large Cuffs  –  Long Sleeve Gloves  –  The Mini Skirt  –  Carwash Pleat Skirts  –  One Shoulder Dresses  –  Thigh-High Boots  –  Winter Florals  –  Chunky Knit Sweaters  – Red Plaid  – Geometric Patterned Stockings and Hosiery #1.  Show the Right Skins– Long Sleeve Gloves + Thigh-High Boots + One Shoulder dresses It becomes extremely easy to get all wrapped up tight and firm in colder seasons such as fall. And sometimes, the chicness lies exactly in the skin that is exposed properly, if not being too carefully covered under your thick cashmere sweater. The mindset of “fall/winter is not dress-friendly” has been long out-dated, what’s really keep you stand tall and proud this fall/winter is the one-shoulder dresses armed with over-the-elbow gloves of master elegance. From Yigal Azrouel’s black minimalistic one-shoulder wonder to Proenza Schouler’s red bandage sexy “maxi”-mizer and Simone Rocha’s plaid dress of relaxed grace, put them on before reaching out the gloves, be it Maison Margiela’s orange statement or Lanvin’s  violet fringe factor; envied by the thigh-high boots such as these from Vionnet or as class as Christian Dior; the boundary between the inconsiderate off-duty casual and calculated chic is defined by the seemingly simple pieces you put together that do great changes to your style landscape. 5 #2. Last Change for the Season-Mix Chic Wear– The Mini Skirt/Carwash Pleat Skirts + Chunky Knit Sweaters + Refined Tights Haven’t you gotten enough hint from various websites such as Topshop, alongside with countless campaigns that hinted to you one of the most effortless way to stay chic off-work? This is the chemistry between chunky sweaters and its opposite style counterparts – mini/midi skirts. Who even wears them separately these days anyways? Grab one stripy Chloe silk-blend sweater from Net-a-porter, bottomed down with Dior’s grey dense carwash pleat midi, and if you feel cold, simply add a tight from Giamba like. Voila! You’re getting where we’re going. Just you wait. 6 #3.  Swell Accessories — Statement Earrings and Large Broaches + Winter Floral + Large Cuffs Dose size matter? Apparently it does. Things are getting colorful while still staying large in size this fall. Marsala earrings such as those from Dsquared2 and Miu Miu could be the good examples. The tricks are, regardless of being large in size, those are actually feminine magnifiers that contradictorily add more personality to your daily wear, accentuate your very off-duty appeal. Want some flowers in winter? What’s going to blossom so happily are exactly what that keep your feet nice and warm. Gucci’s furry mules, Maison Margiela’s fluffy heels and Tibi’s fur slippers are all nice choice when it comes to the blossoming cold season style. Yet they’re not the only thing that you could turn to for some extra chic and warmness. The enormous cuffs from Celine and Marni alike are going to get you covered and armed to the very shoulder, literally. 7 #4. Go Graphic– Red Plaid + Geometric Hosiery This is when you have to think outside of the box that “only large pieces such as tops and dresses could get graphic”. The truth is, when it comes to the detailed chicness, what you really need, apart from the red plaid signature pieces, either the long jacket from Alexander Wang, or the bright red plaid blazer from Vivienne Westwood, the well-dressed legs are exactly what would either give your true chic self away, or just not. Tights might seem simple, but even the tiniest details tell just to what extent you want to refine your off-duty style. Should you go animal print with Au Jour Le Jour? Distressed look with St. Laurent? Or the ultimate seduction with Versace? Try all of them, and have the taste on different stories behind the patterns that ready to round-up your legs. 8 Those are merely just the glimpse into what you should look into for your wardrobe this fall & winter. It’s time to dump the boringness of your casual off-duty style and have a taste of the vintage leisure chic.

Lee Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, Talks Fall 2015 

 “Juxtaposition of color from opposite sides of the spectrum emphasizes poise and confidence on the runway. The Fall 2015 palette is rooted in multi-faceted, androgynous colors that can be worn to portray effortless sophistication across men’s and women’s fashion; it is the first time we are seeing a truly unisex color palette. This season displays an umbrella of accord that weaves earthy neutrals with a range of bold color statements and patterns to reflect a landscape of hope, fun, fantasy and all things natural. The colors are evocative of a love for nature and a timeless appreciation for warmth and security, which are conveyed through naturally inspired colors that remind us of things that are real and protective. This Fall, designers’ pay homage to progressive moments in American history – from the seductive ‘20s to the bohemian hippie and modernists of the ‘60s and ‘70s – while stringing together an affection for colors and styling that are innately easy to wear by both men and women.” (, 2015)   Sources Glamour.
