Fashion; when art comes to life and simple pieces of fabrics and metals come together to inspire people across cultures, geographical regions, beliefs, and genders. It’s almost like magic, the way a new trend or style of dress can bring a person newfound confidence, sensuality, and love for themselves.
Every year, four of the world’s most prestigious fashion capitals host, “Fashion Week”, where new trends, styles, fabrics, and looks are displayed in the extreme, for the world to see. New York, London, Milan, and Paris all do their part in guiding fashionistas and retail buyers to the top looks for the upcoming Fall and Winter seasons.
Sometimes, it can be difficult to see a style on the runway of Fashion Week and imagine it in everyday life. The ladies at Caracol want to help with that, and have chosen some of the best trends, in our opinion, that we’d love to help recreate with our Caracol Silver equestrian inspired jewelry and accessories.
If you’re a fan of Shakespeare or the infamous, Pride and Prejudice, then this is a fashion trend that you absolutely must get in on! The fabric of choice is velvet for this fall with the option of bell sleeves and corset-styled pieces. Designers who have shown this trend in their collections are, Gucci, Chanel, Lanvin, and Vanessa Seward. For this style, it’s all about extravagance, elegance, and an old-time kind of beauty.
Embellished Guitar Straps
Collections from Burberry, Fendi, Lanvin, and Anya Hindmarch, all showed this style of ‘rockstar bag' featuring thick, extra wide, straps embellished with a bit of bling. What they call rock star, we call cowgirl, and we're happy to be able to bring this trend to your wardrobe this Fall.
This is more of a retro look that has made a comeback through the designs of Brandon Maxwell, Christian Dior, Burberry, MSGM, and Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini. The idea is to have a petite, retro-chic shoulder cover to wear casually or with your favorite little black dress. To make this style a bit more realistic for the everyday woman, Caracol has just the thing for you! Whether you choose to wear a shawl or small poncho, we’ll help keep you both warm and fashionable when the cooler weather arrives.
As we mentioned earlier with the, “Renaissance Woman” style, velvet is the official fabric of the Fall 2016 season. Fashion designers, Alberta Ferreti, Monse, Rochas, H&M, and Giorgio Armani all feature clothing made from velvet, and we have just the piece of jewelry to match.
Dressed up Bohemian
We recently had a revelation about Bohemian style in the equestrian world, and we are so excited that some of our greatest fashion designers saw this as a ‘must wear’ trend for 2016. Dressing up printed maxi dresses was the most popular way to achieve this look, as seen by Diane von Furstenberg, Zimmermann, Mara Hoffman, and Banana Republic. Many items in our Caracol Silver No. 3 collection will make the perfect additions to your Fall Bohemian look!
We can’t say that scarves are a new trend for the Fall season. However, designers have decided that, instead of the bulky, draping look, a shorter, ‘neckerchief’ style is the thing to wear in 2016. Designers at Fashion Week show this look over turtlenecks, and can even be worn to dress up your horse show look. If you’re in need of a new scarf selection, take a look at the beautiful silk scarves we have available in our Caracol online store.
Single Statement Earrings
We’ve saved the best for last. This trend won’t be for everyone, and may just be something that we try on for fun and decide against, but we absolutely had to share it. InStyle Magazine describes this style as, “fiercely independent”, and requires a bold look. To achieve this look, we’re featuring our Mars and Valentine Black Topaz Earrings.
