Pre-fall trends are here and they look better than ever. In this piece, we will discuss just a snipped of the entire pre-fall trend, focusing on fashion outfits that will make you look slimmer and gorgeous during this wonderful season. There are various trends that are making a comeback this season, and some new additions, and it is important to note that not all of these styles and trends will flatter every woman. Thus, it is important to keep you body shape in mind, learn which styles will make you look slimmer, and shop for your body shape, not according to what your eyes like on a model.
This pre-fall is all about prints and patterns: from feline to floral, to checkers and stripes; it’s pattern galore!
Slimming Feline Prints
This pre-fall take your fashion wardrobe to the wild side and embrace nature with tiger, cheetah and leopard prints and with the floral meadows of the season. Feline prints will be popular on coats and outerwear. These prints can be flattering and slimming on women of all body shapes; for women of hourglass, and pear-shaped bodies, long coats are recommended, while for women of apple and banana shaped bodies, shorter coats will slim the figure and show off the legs.
Floral prints will continue to blossom on our fashion outfits, making an even greater extended appearance on maxi dresses and professional attire. I recommend all women to embrace this trend, expose their feminine side, and look absolutely slimming with the right maxi dress – if you are unsure of which maxi dress style will flatter your figure, know this, you can never go wrong with an A-line maxi dress.
Slimming Checkers and Stripes
Fashion outfits with checked prints are ideal for creating a slimming illusion, if chosen correctly that is. Go for items that have darker colours around your outer silhouette, and which gradually lighten as your move inwards, this will create the illusion of a slimmer figure, by drawing the eye to the centre. When it comes to stripes, remember vertical stripes slim, while horizontal stripes may make you look wider. Now, this can be advantageous for pear-shaped women who wish to widen their upper half, and bring a balance to their shape. Pear shaped women can mix and match stripes – horizontal on top, vertical on the bottom – to create the illusion of an hourglass shape.
Slimming Thigh Highs
Thigh high socks will spice up your fashion outfits this season and add some needed sass to your look. Don’t be afraid to experiment and allow your flirtatious side out to play. When worn with a simple mini skirt and a simple blouse, thigh highs will reveal just a bit of skin, which look particularly flattering on curvier women. If you are absolutely unwilling to show skin, thigh high suede boots can be your sophisticated alternative.
Slimming Suede and Velvet
Suede and velvet are back in style, and here to add a world of elegance and poise to every woman’s wardrobe. We will see velvet of a variety of shades and colours, which are used on every type of item, including trousers, coats, shoes, and dresses. For any body shape, opting out for a more structures velvet item will slim your figure, allowing you to wear this gorgeous material without revealing lumps and bumps.
Slimming High Waisted Bottoms
From trousers to skirts and shorts, high waisted bottoms are the hit this season. High waisted bottoms will accent your waist, tuck in any extra weight without creating that dreaded muffin-top, and can elongate your silhouette. Ladies, this pre-fall, I recommend every one of you to at least try on a high waisted, metallic pleated skirt. I am confident that you will fall in love with this fun, worldly and cosmopolitan look, essentially fitted for any occasion.
