Check out four fall fashion trends emerging from major Western and Indigenous runways.
Fall fashion trends are always a favorite thanks to the rich colors, statement patterns, and layers and layers of coats and vests. Basically, the more items to show your style, the merrier. Between several Western and Indigenous runway events, we’re expecting four major trends to emerge this season.
Fringe, sequins, and textures, oh my!
Nothing elevates an average outfit or makes an otherwise simple piece pop like fringe, sequins, or other textured elements.
We love Diné designer Orlando Dugi’s fabulous take on this sequined dress as well as more rugged approaches like Cripple Creek Apparel’s buffalo leather jacket with bone detailing and Scully’s buckskin leather and fringe skirt.
Cool colors to keep you warm!
Shades of mint, teal, and mauve will pair seamlessly with classic neutrals like camel, black, and gray. The cool-hued aesthetic is a perfect transition from late summer while adding to a vibrant yet comfortable look for fall.
Florals for fall? Groundbreaking!
Floral prints aren’t just for spring. In fact, what better than earthy patterns and bright blooms to reflect the changing seasons?
Vintage detail, darling!
Vintage details dating back to the 1930s, 40s, and 70s illuminates the staying strength of Western style. Specific trends include retro silhouettes as well as exquisite embroidery depicting bucking broncs, rodeo, and wildflowers.
This Double D Ranch burnt orange suit with embroidery details on the collar and around the ankles is a staple this season.
