I know we are in the midst of the frenzy that is fall fashion, but you know, we fashion-types are always looking at what’s ahead, what’s next.. What’s ahead is actually what’s already happened. Designers are still having a love affair with the 90’s. This season, they’ve decided to bring in the 70’s to create a threesome of relaxed, soft silhouettes.
Michael Kors 70’s inspired looks
The color palette was minimalist 90’s at it’s best. Primarily black and white with pops of red, and sometimes blue. Beige also made up a good percentage of the palette, while some designers offered up icy pastels, as well.

Red and black at Proenza Schouler
White at Zac Posen
Black at Jason Wu
We were treated to boxy, cropped tops and jackets. The midi skirt is still having a moment, but the car-wash skirt (think multiple strips of fabric swaying to and fro) is a new addition. The skinny jean is a distant memory, with pants still enjoying loose and cropped cuts. Floral prints are back but in a more modern way.
