The Fall Runway - Translated Part 2

The next trends were inspired by Blumarine and Chanel. Blumarine is showing major femininity with heaps of ruffles and flowing fabrics and Chanel is classic and perfect as always, with an emphasis on the color grey (and black, but that's a no brainer).

Here are some examples of ways to incorporate these beautiful elements into your own wardrobe. Think ruffles, pleats, tucks, rosettes and detail. Neutral colors keep it clean and from looking costume-y or overdone.

Grey is easy. You most likely already have grey basics in your closet, so bust them out and wear them proud! All shades from light heather greys, to deep charcoals will look great - even together.

Next up, accessories...
